Initial review after first trip.
By JohnAE on
2011 Toyota Avalon Limited 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
Within the first week of ownership completed a one day 830 mile trip. Really smooth, quiet, comfortable, fuel efficient car. Computer said we got 29.9 mpg at 70++ mph. Not a canyon carver but handles well enough for legal speeds. Braking is okay but not stellar, best you could say is it gets the job done without drama. JBL sound system has excellent separation and frequency range. Blue tooth is a plus. Floor mats are black, a little strange. All dash controls are easy to reach and well lit even in bright light. Manual tilt and tele. Seats are supportive even though flat but sit a little to low even when adjusted as high as they go. Headlights light up the night.
Seat comfort, overall quiet, supple ride, interior ergonomics, power, fuel mileage, highly adjustable seats (even the fronts extend) great sound system, what you get for the money.
More distinctive exterior, color matched floor mats, faster downshifting transmission, lose the sunroof and substitute power tilt and tele steering col. tied to memory function.
