Not the same car


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


I traded my 2002 Avalon XL in on a 2007 XLS. I wish I had the 2002 back. It was much quieter and had more stability. The 2007 engine is noisy and often clatters like a diesel. Dealership says that is normal?? I just hope that it does not finally fail while I am on a long trip 2000 miles from home. I enjoy driving the car but would feel much more at ease if the engine were not so noisy and the transmission shifted smoother. The rear vision from the car when backing is also very limited. Knowing where the rear of the car is questionable. I like the interior and the entertainment system. Paint also chips very easy. Dealer blamed it on the EPA.

Best Features

Roomy interior, 6 CD player and yes the cassette player. I listen to a lot of audio books. Over all I like the car but am disappointed with the very noisy engine and jerky transmission.

Worst Features

Find out why the engine is so noisy and smooth out the transmission. Reduce the blind spots in rear. Use paint that does not chip so easily.
