2013 Toyota Avalon XLE Touring 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Review

This was one of the most reliable cars I have ever owned. Just oil changes and new tires when the originals wore out. The car handled great and had very good power and stopping ability. Sadly, it rode pretty rough with its low profile tires. The trunk was miniscule and the rear seat didn't fold down. Rear visibility was poor at best. Thankfully it had a rear camera and cross traffic sensors. The blind spot monitors worked well. Buy it if you don't need much cargo carrying capacity and like a sporty sedan and don't mind a less than ideal ride----a trade-off for the excellent handling. Good gas mileage.

2013 Toyota Avalon XLE Touring 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Review

Overall our ‘13 Avalon is a compromise in meeting our expectations for comfort, quasi-sportiness, and initial quality. Best features include the space for 6’-4” legs and the visibility afforded to urban driving conditions. Mechanically, the vehicle is Toyota solid. Power-plant and powertrain deliver almost exhilarating and smooth performance. What’s annoying is the mediocre workmanship within the cabin’s interior. This car is highway driven >80% in Southern California’s vastly fair weather. Road noise is distractingly noticeable.. Headliner at the top edge of rear window and sewing/anchoring of driver-front leather seat (lowest front edge) have detached themselves. Adhesives or sewing required. The ride is a tad light - meaning not stout/solid and stable. Strictly applying money spent vesus a quality product in return, it would have been worth spending it elsewhere.

2013 Toyota Avalon XLE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Review

Traded in a 2008 Avalon for a 2013. Was a little worried when I read some negative reviews, but NONE of those issues turned out to be true for me. The seats are WAY better than my previous 2008. The ride is much sportier, especially in regard to steering and handling. Yes, you get a little more "roadfeel", but I'd rather feel that I have more precise control, which I definitely do with this new model. Motor is essentially the same as my 2008, and I had ZERO issues with that car (owned until 155K miles). Looks way less like a little old man's car, and more modern. Interior is way nicer, and road noise is way less than my 2008. Stereo is a HUGE improvement as well. Technology overall is impressive in the base model, which was not the case with previous Avalon base models. Great on the highway just like previous models. As far as resale value, nothing beat's Toyotas, especially the Avalon.

Handles close to the road, hugs curves. Leather interior , nav, sunroof, and other perks makes it safe and fun.
