This is My Last Toyota
By DaytonaSmith on


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


The Avalon XLS I bought in 1998 now has 180,000 miles and is going strong. I hoped to repeat this performance with my new 2008 Avalon Limited. The Toyota quality is just no longer there. Problems include road noise, whining and jerking transmission, seats uncomfortable and squeaking, GPS is totally worthless, paint quality is horrible, rear sunshade activates for no reason, console is obtrusive, limited visibility for backing, and much more. I would advise avoiding Toyota until they return to building great cars like those of ten years ago.

Best Features

nice wheel styling

Worst Features

Completely replace the GPS, better paint job, restyle windows for visibility, more attention to poor electronics, better transmission, more comfortable seats
