2011 Toyota Avalon Limited 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Review

I owned 2006 and 2010 Avalon Limiteds. The 2011 is bit better. I don't know why, but fuel mileage increased over 2010, but it's a good thing. Pavement noises are pretty much absent. Riding over pavement irregularities is superb. Space, ergonomics, textures, panels, grains, and the like fit well, look, well, and are pleasing to the eye. I've never purchased the navigation system. The engine and transmission are smooth. Heating, including the seats, and air conditioning are wonderful. Blizzard Pearl and the beige leather are fine color combinations. Low road and wind noise. I don't understand the "9" ratings for MPG, but at 75 MPH I get 34-35 on road. Needs more thing support.


Best Features

MPG, ride, low noise, engine and transmission performance, fit and finish, interior design, and silhouette. Twenty-four month free oil and filter changes, and other preventative maintenance services.


Worst Features

Add 2 inches,or so, to the depth of the front seats, or otherwise improve thigh support.

2011 Toyota Avalon 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Review

The 2011 exterior and interior design is very appealing. The engine is spunky. Car is fun to drive and oozes with luxury, quality, safety, and class. We're proud to drive the car and it has the new Toyota five point safety system on it. Engine is not as efficient as the same engine was in our 2006 Avalon.


Best Features

Exterior & interior style. GPS navigation system & the bluetooth functions. The soothing, snow white instrument panel lighting.


Worst Features

Move external temp readout back to center panel for passengers to view.

2011 Toyota Avalon Limited 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Review

Just returned from a round trip to Illinois and driving the speed limits, averaged 33 mpg, which includes a traffic tie up in the Twin Cities, and side winds the entire trip. Couldn't be any better! Fantastic ride and handling!


Best Features

Vented seats for warmth and cool air, touch screen GPS and reclining rear seats!


Worst Features

Possibly electronic air purifier.

Review

I am in the shopping process & have driven nearly every competitor & rate the Buick Lucerne as the best in this class overall. The Avalon does not offer the Blind side warning system, chrome wheels & the trunk is much smaller than the Lucerne which costs less w/the discounts available. The Avalon is faster but the exterior look is dated & not as impressive in my opinion as the Lucerne. Ford is out of the game w/their ugly Taurus which has an almost useless trunk & such poor visibility that it is a wonder the NTSB allows it on the road? The foreign buck boards are reserved for the road & track people.


Best Features

Performance


Worst Features

more useful options such as BLIS & larger trunk w/air suspension for loads
