I am 74 yrs old and my Avalon is a touring sedan with 18" wheels and Michelin tires inflated to 33 psi cold. Took a trip of nearly 2000 miles round trip with another couple and a full load of luggage. The car is a road burning joy to drive. It is eager to cruise at "go to jail speeds" if your not carful. The seats are firm for some older folks and I carried a jell filled cushion in case that was a problem. One passenger used the cushion for part of the trip but interesting they stopped using it on the trip back and myself and everyone else found the seats firm but very supportive and comfortable. The handling reminds me of my last 5 series BMW very stable and secure and confidence inspiring. Low road noise and wind noise topped off with milage over 30 mpg even though the car was heavily loaded and often traveling in the fast lane at high speeds. Let's face it seats are like mattresses not every one likes the same firmness but seats always soften with use but never firm up and the seat obviously softened enough that the passenger that found her seat a little firm experienced this fact.Report it
