Despite shortcomings a great value
No navigation system to speak of, voice commands don't work most of the time, audio system lacks intuitive controls. Acceleration, handling, comfort and climate control all work well despite poor Dash layout. Salesman was reluctant to discuss the cars audio and navigation operation probably because of past complaints and frustrations. In fact it's probably no coincidence that they didn't even give me the book on the navigation and audio system
Cruise Control --- Warnings --- Dashboard --- etc.
Toyota 2018 Avalon Limited ... 5,931 miles ... purchased four months ago, Aug 2017 -------------------------------------------------- Cruise Control 1. "Set" the cruise control to 35 mph (freeway construction zone). Accelerate (with the foot accelerator) to 70 mph after the construction zone (do not change the cruise control while accelerating). Set the cruise control. The car hits the brakes and slows to 35 mph. This could lead to multiple rear end collisions. 2. "Set" the cruise control to 55 mph. When traveling down a gradual slope ... the car brakes for a second ... then accelerates for a second ... then brakes for a second ... then accelerates for a second. The transmission shifts through three gears, up and down (per a service tech who monitored with his computer). The steepness of the slope may modify the times. It may be an engineering achievement to maintain 1 mph precision, but it kills gas mileage. 3. On a recent trip, the cruise control stopped working. There was a warning light with a message that the cruise control is "not available". The next day the cruise control started working again. 4. On the same trip, the tach jumped to 3,000 rpm at 70 mph. Canceling the cruise control, and restarting cruise control, did not make a difference. A few hours later it was back at 2,000 rpm. Also kills gas mileage. -------------------------------------------------- Warnings 5. a) The door is opened, the engine is running, there is no warning sound. b) The door is opened, then the engine is shut off, there is a warning sound. Normally a warning sound indicates something else is wrong. In this case, there is nothing wrong. -------------------------------------------------- Dashboard 6. The gas gauge light is dim. Can barely see during the day. 7. The A/C On / Off light ... Auto light ... cruise control ... etc. ... are dim. Can barely see during the day. 8. There are no knobs (only touch screen buttons) to change the heater / air conditioner. The driver must take eyes off of the road to adjust the temperature. 9. Must take off gloves to change the heater / air conditioner. -------------------------------------------------- Headlights 10. The headlights, in the auto mode, jump from high beam to low beam every few seconds ... even when it is midnight ... and there are no other cars on the road. I suspect it is the reflectors on the side of the road. -------------------------------------------------- Fog Lights 11. There are no fog lights. -------------------------------------------------- Misc 12. The passenger side rear seat door speaker has a distorted sound ... the dealer plans to replace. 13. The key fob does not always work to open the trunk. 14. Only two cup holders. 15. Too much bass on AM radio ... difficult to understand people speaking (unlike our Honda). Minimizing the bass does not help. -------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------- --------------------------------------------------
Very New - Still Learning The 2018 Avalon
This is my first car since a 2011 Avalon, and the technology is what is taking a bit longer. The various safety controls, e.g., blind-side monitoring, backing up guides, lane departure, etc., are new to me. The manuals provided are very detailed, but I am one who tends to read about new things like this Avalon from cover to cover. I've had the car for three weeks, and I am definitely still learning. Updated March 2018. Living in a small town leads to fewer miles; thus after almost 7 months of driving the Avalon, I have less than 2,800 miles on it. There are just a couple of quirks thus far with the car. First, when the car has not been driven for a while such as being parked overnight in the garage or all day in the parking lot at my office, when I back up and depress the brake pedal, the brakes have a slight squeak to them. It lasts for just a second or two. The Service Advisor indicated this is not unusual for a new car and that it should disappear. We'll see. More of just a nuisance than anything else. Second, I don't use the navigation system that much, but i have noticed that the arrow pointing to my location seems to be about 25-50 feet behind where the vehicle actually is. For example, crossing into an intersection, I would expect the needle to be in the intersection. Instead, the needle is not quite into the intersection just yet. The Service Advisor had no good explanation for this but offered to update the software the next time I brought the car in for service and to speak more closely with one of the technicians. We didn't have sufficient time this visit which was just for a 6-month service. There are things I like and some things I am still getting used to. I do like the fact that the driver seat slides back when unhooking the seat belt. This makes it easier to get into and out of the vehicle. Mileage on the highway is around 30 or so; I usually keep the freeway speed around 70. In town, it's probably averaging around 20-22. Living in a small town, driving is a lot of stop and go, short trips. I really like the blind-side and backup alarm systems that appear in the side mirrors. Very convenient but I still look. Still getting used to Entune.

Toyota Avalon vs. Toyota Camry

If you like everything the Avalon has to offer but you're looking for something with a bit more personality, the Toyota Camry is worth a look. The new Camry has sportier styling and sharper handling to match. A fuel-efficient four-cylinder engine is standard, and a V6 is optional. Inside, there's just as much leather, wood and modern technology as in the Avalon, and it's all for a few thousand dollars less. The main reason to get the Avalon is its slightly roomier rear seat.

Toyota Avalon vs. Lexus ES 350

The Lexus ES 350 is very similar to the Avalon in terms of luxury appointments and mechanical underpinnings, but it has once thing the Toyota doesn't have: a luxury brand badge and the ownership experience that comes with it. The ES 350's styling is a little more staid than the Avalon's, as is the driving experience. But the Lexus is all about understated luxury and driver isolation.

Toyota Avalon vs. Honda Accord

Previous generations of the Honda Accord would have rarely been cross-shopped with the Avalon, but the all-new Accord is a revelation. It's been comprehensively restyled, and it's longer, wider, and much roomier than ever before. Though it lacks the buttery smooth V6 of the Avalon, the Accord is full of modern technology and is more responsive and returns better fuel economy.
