2007 Toyota Avalon Limited 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


After researching and test driving 15 cars, including the BMW 530, MB E350, Cadillac STS, Lincoln MKZ, and Hyundai Azera, I purchased the Avalon Limited. Unlike most of its competition, the Avalon Limited is available with desirable features, such as a first-class stereo and seat heaters, without absurdly complex car controls or having to purchase overpriced nonsense like DVD navigation systems to get other features. Car may be the most silent available, & can comfortably seat five U.S.-sized adults. Roofline is high enough to accommodate six-foot-plus drivers and passengers, even with the moon roof. Acceleration is smooth and quiet, and the controls are logical and well laid out.

Best Features

Brilliant and simple audio controls on the steering wheel. Heated and ventilated seats. JBL Synthesis stereo. Rain-sensing wipers (which work way better than you would think). Electronic stability control (option package). Seat/mirror memory tied to the keyfob. Driver's seat extender.

Worst Features

Illuminate HomeLink & door lock buttons. Smart Key system is unneccessary & confusing for the uninitiated - dump it. Mid-dash status screen needs separate dimming rheostat. Tilt-telescope steering wheel function should be electric, not manual, and tied to memory. Warranty should be 4 years/50,000.
