2006 Toyota Avalon Limited 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I traded in my Mercedes-Benz E320 on the Toyota Limited. The Limited has almost all the features that the Benz had. The seats are more comfortable, & the added air conditioner along with the heated seats are better than the Benz (which had only heat). Of course there is the price. ($30000+ cheaper than the Benz) It has more horsepower than the Benz, & the comfort & roominess of the rear seats far surpass the Benz. I opted to buy a Tom Tom portable nav system. All in all, I am very satisfied with the Limited. The fuel mileage meter is a waste. By the time it figures out your actual mileage, you're on empty.


Best Features

The pass thru to the trunk, roominess, quick responsivness, easy to drive.


Worst Features

The front passenger's seat needs the same seat adjustments as the driver's, complete with memory, more aerodynamic design so that side winds are not as noticable, a fuel milage meter that really works, a reasonably priced, touch screen, user friendly. nav system.

2006 Toyota Avalon Limited 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

This car is finally not for old people, which is good. The new exterior is great. The interior is awesome. The performance is very good. For a car with a 3.5 V6, this has the fuel economy of a 4-cylinder. Like most Japanese cars, this is very reliable. It isn't as fancy as the lexus, but about half the price. There is an unbelievable amount of rear legroom: 40", and up front is 41"! There has not been any issues with it yet, and there probably won't be any. It is much better than our previous car, which was a Lexus RX330. There is not one thing anybody dislikes about this car.


Best Features

Legroom is good, heated and cooled seats are always nice, and it is good to have steering wheel controls for the radio and a/c.


Worst Features

Nothing.

2006 Toyota Avalon XLS 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

The new Avalon is outstanding! It's our 2nd in a row, third Toyota & it's over the top! It rides like butter on a hot roll. The new look is so elegant, new safety feature in brakes just adds to it being a car we have always felt extremely safe in. It is roomier inside, back seats recline, the dash is all push button, hidden controls & the new colors are beautiful with the leather seats. It has awesome acceleration & smoothest ride. Our last Avalon of 6 yrs was still like brand new, other than basic maintenance, oil changes, new battery & tires, we never had it in the shop. Toyotas are outstanding cars, & get great gas milage. We'll always have an Avalon, we come from an all Toyota family.


Best Features

The automatic garage door opener on the rear view mirror, no more remote on the visor, just push a button to program up to 3 remote controled doors. Love radio & temp controls on the steering wheel, multiple speakers all around the car, air bags everywhere, every angle, air cond vent in back seat.


Worst Features

2 things. Lumbar support was added to drivers seat which is great, but not the front passengers seat. Huge oversight that needs to be corrected. Compartment between 2 front seats s/b divided in 2 sections, w/latch for a sm top section. Even our Chevy Colorado truck has both these features.

2006 Toyota Avalon XLS 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Drove this from FL to NH just after purchasing. Found the auto to be comfortable and a pleasure to drive. I had read reviews that mentioned soft ride and floating. I found that his car stayed fixed on the road as well as my BMW 325I.


Best Features

Have GPS on this vehicle and love it as I am a person who is always asking where are we now.


Worst Features

None that I can think of.

2006 Toyota Avalon Limited 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I traded in a 03 Mercedes Benz for this car. This car has more room, more options, better gas mileage and it cost less that the Mercedes. You simply get more car for the money.


Best Features

Push button start.


Worst Features

Improve the key board on the navigation system. It is hard to type the words.
