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


I am a previous Avalon owner of two Avalon's. They were good cars. Now I own a 2013 Avalon. The ride is very harsh with bumps being transmitted into the cabin as noticeable knocks. Road noise is terrible on worn asphalts and concrete roads. The head lights cut off to soon on low beam. The seats are very hard making a long trip unpleasant. I now wish that I had not purchased this car.

Best Features

I like the plush interior of the car. I think the overall design of the car is nice looking. Gas mileage is better than my previous Avalon's.

Worst Features

Fix the harsh ride. Install more insulation to quiet the road noise. Upgrade the radio. Extend head lights cutoff when on low beam.

My brother had the same problem with the ride and finally after a few months the dealer noticed the tire pressure was 40lbs. Took out air and ride was completely different. I hope this solves the problem. I have a 2013 Avalon Touring two weeks olds and it rides great.
