Could be great car
By Don on


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


Responsive engine and lots of good and convenient features. Gets good mileage for a big car. Not too big for "an around town car." Only beef is the car wanders/tracks the rain grooves on a concrete freeway at freeway speed. Feels like you're hydroplaning. Dealer and Toyota of America say this is a "characteristic" of the car and there is no fix. Long distance driving leaves me up tight and hanging on for dear life.

Best Features

Plenty of power from the V6 for any situation. Reasonably comfortable and all controls in convenient reach. Plenty of trunk room. Nice sound system. Quiet ride.

Worst Features

Simplify the a/c controls. Needs a side bumper strip to prevent the parking lot dings. Improve sideview mirrors to eliminate severe blind spots. Could move the windshield wiper control down the steering post about a half inch to reduce accidental activation. Correct the tracking problem.
