Pros: What do you like about your 2007 Toyota Avalon?
Smooth, quiet ride.
Cons: How would you improve your 2007 Toyota Avalon?
Seats nead to have more contour/back comfort, even with the lumbar support that's not quite that effective; need more thigh support and a bit more plush.
2007 Toyota Avalon Review:
Overall quite content with my purchase. Did have a problem with front end alignment; it tended to "creep" to the left and had to return it several times until I found a new dealership that remedied the problem in one visit
Also has a "ticking" sound in the engine when cold and tends to disappear after about 10 or so minutes of driving with no effect, it would seem, on the engine's performance. Transmission seems smooth, although I've read some negative reviews concerning same. But so far, no complaints.
Overall I would not hesitate to recommend this vehicle to anyone seeking a Lexus-like ride for a lot less $$$$$. Oh, yes, and the gas mileage is really excellent for a sedan of this type -- on regular gas, too. But I get better mileage on mid-grade or high-grade gas. So, in that case it's a toss-up, and the mileage isn't too significant with the various grades.
Also, the cloth interior in my XL is wonderfully comfortable in hot and especially cold weather. My last 4 automotbiles have had leather seats, and except for the "luxorious" impression, I think leather isn't very practical, especially in weather variations. However, as previously mentioned, leather or not, I think Toyota should re-think the Avalon's seating -- a little more side and back support, more like a bucket, for traveling, rather than living-room-like.
Otherwise I'll give it a 4 and a half star overall rating.
