2008 Toyota Avalon XLS 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Bought mine in Jun 08. The car has a great ride and impeccable interior design. It is quiet and the seats are super comfy. I like the all-power seat options and the full-size spare tire. The bluetooth needs some re-working - it has too much static. The CD-changer and sound are great! The heated seats have been a lifesaver especially on those frigid winter mornings of NE PA. There's so much leg room in this car- especially for the back seats (cramped back-seating is the reason I shied away from a Volvo. Fuel efficiency is not bad for a 3.5L engine- am averaging 25-28 mpg. BUT- the navigation is the worst! What was Toyota thinking!! It's awkward, difficult and tedious- and it's not touchscreen

Best Features

Smooth ride, interior design (except for the GPS), traction control, stability control (thank you Toyota)- it's amazing to see this in action especially on a slippery incline. The cassis pearl color.

Worst Features

Bluetooth and GPS. Looks like the GPS controls were designed by pranksters with little fingers for americans with large fingers. It also never seems to find points of interest. Toyota should revamp this or give us a refund.
