Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
Pros: the room, the ride, the reliability
Cons: passing startsonly one noticeable flaw= pickup when passing; there is a slight hesitation, then all is fine. the hesitation is a concern when about to pass.
Such an improvement!
Pros: The Bluetooth and voice navigation.
Cons: Nothing so far, and Im on 8500 miles.I rented the 2010 Avalon and drove it 1000 miles at least and fell in love with it! I then bought the 2011. Im only 25, so the styling isnt awesome, but its okay. I love the comfort, and that makes up for it! You can also mod it with TRD packages.
3rd and BEST EVER!
Pros: The recling rear seats, the smart-key system, the power passenger seat, and the ALL one-touch automatic windows!
Cons: You cant use your iPod as a remot when pairing it with the Bluetooth.This is my 3rd Avalon. Ive been driving them since I graduated high school, and the two that I used to drive are now driven by my cousins. Each has at least 200k miles. This Avalon is even more comfortable, quieter, and better looking than before. I also like to power and fuel economy boost. It handles better and hugs the curves like a sports car. I love my new Avalon, and if you try it, you will feel the same!
Pros: Reclining back seats
Cons: Navigation system
Advice: Do not buy the navigation systemThis is the 2nd Avalon we have owned and it is perhaps the best car we've ever owned in terms of comfort, ride, handling and safety. Only negative we have with it is the navigation system is not woirth the price - you're better off buying a portable GPS system for a few hundred bucks and skip paying Toyota over $2000 for an integrted system that is not easy to use. Gas mileage is good, comfort is outstanding and the room inside makes any road trip pleasant. Great car.
