Premium Car Price Without Premium Ride, Quietness or Seat Comfort

2013 Toyota Avalon XLE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


2013 Avalon does not not feel like a $35,000 premium sedan. The ride is busy because even small road imperfections are felt and heard. There's no sound insulation under the carpets or in the doors so the road noise level is high like being in a Corolla. The front seat bottoms are small in size and thinly padded. So my seat bottom gets sore after only 20 miles of highway driving. The only "premium" car qualities that the 2013 Avalon has are rock solid directional stability on the highway, a smooth, quiet and responsive engine and transmission, and a fairly luxurious looking and feeling interior.

Best Features

Refined engine and transmission performance. Great fuel economy for a V6. Great directional stability on the highway. Appealing styling.

Worst Features

Fix the thinly padded and small sized seat bottoms that induce driver fatigue after only 20 miles of highway driving. Fix the bumpy, economy car like ride. Fix the economy car like amount of road noise.
