Not what I paid for/lemon

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


Since day one I am having transmission problems. The dealer keeps on saying there is nothing wrong with the vehicle, but there is. It slows down too quickly when your foot is removed from the gas pedal. Sooner or later I will be rear-ended. I am in arbitration now. I was told by a Toyota the tech to drive aggressively. That is against the law. As of now I am due for an arbitration hearing.

Best Features

My wife loves this car and finds it more comfortable than a more expensive car we drive. I wish they had found a fix for this beautiful top of the liner. As long as there is a problem, I am not happy.

Worst Features

This is a complete vehicle which can hardly be improved. The nav is great and it looks very good. I wish it were safer and that the transmission problem could be fixed so that we could keep it.
