Great vehicle for a long trip anywhere!
By mr_hydraulics on
2013 Toyota Avalon Limited 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
I purchased the new Limited for a recent trip to the Southeast.
The car's performance was wonderful and very comfortable for the long haul.
The bonus features were the navigation system and blind spot warning system.
Stereo system was awesome.
I especially appreciated the comforts of adjustable ventilated/heated seats and lumbard/thigh support.
We loaded the car with golf clubs and three larger suitcases with room to spare. Great handling/ride/responsiveness.
Our trip was around 3300 miles and averaged 31.0 MPG - in combined driving - fully loaded.
This was somewhat surprizing, as the lowest MPG was 27, when climbing into higher elevations.
Great Toyota- great ride.
Handling and performance.
Sound system and navigation are excellent - it even alerts to instant road closures on the Interstates and severe local weather.
The quality of the interior materials and workmanship is outstanding!
Mechanics are first rate with performance, cornering, ride and stiffer suspension.
Much better vehicle than my older Avalon.
They missed water bottle and larger storage areas for the door locations, but, that is a small issue.
The map pockets behind the seats are fairly useless because they don't expand to remove anything.
