    Excellent Value — The Avalon is a very complete full sized luxury vehicle - we where pleasantly surprised by the options available in the limited trim level as well as the fit and finish both inside and out. Tremendous value and investment! Highly recommend.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Very roomy and comfortable car. Plenty of power when you need it and lot's of amenities; heated/cooled front seats, reclining rear seats, rear shade, good sound system, hands free - very reliable

    Cons: Brakes appear a little soft/undersized

    The Typical Family Car — This car gave me mixed emotions. I enjoy the abundance of room and the audio compensation system(read pros to know what I'm taking about). I also enjoy the fact that its a four door, so I can drive my friends around in it easily without them complaining for more room. I don't like the mpgs that the car gets. It's terrible. I live in a big city, I get on a good day 17 mpg.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: The car has a very smooth ride and when you get over 20 mph, the audio system gets slightly louder to make up for the engine noise. Nice feature. Very roomy.

    Cons: The mpgs on the car suck. At most I've gotten 23 mpg highway. Modern day sports cars get more than that depending on the trim.

    Enjoyable Driving — My 3rd used Avalon after a '95 and a 2000, because Toyota continues to give me confidence in the combination of fuel efficiency, ride and reliability. I could have a dinner party in the spacious back seat!! A true family car.

    Pros: Ride, comfort, reliability.

    Cons: Hmmmmmmmmm, let me think.  Nope.  Oh --- I miss the instantaneous fuel efficiency digital reading that I had with my 2000.

    A Very Nice Car. Good Bang For The Buck. — Though I don't get to drive it often, it is a very nice ride. It has been above average in reliability in our first year of ownership. It performs ok (for a front wheel drive) looks very nice and is actually fairly efficient (31 highway MPG) considering size. Ride is a little stiff because of the touring package, but we liked the other options that came with it. Though the performance, ride, and luxury are not as good as my E class that is nearly 10yrs older. I would highly recommend this based upon its superior reliability. PS - Verdict still out based upon sticky gas pedal (yet to have an issue).

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Understated luxury. Efficient with scores of space.

    Cons: Boring.

    Toyota Avalon 08 — If u like class along with speed, this is the car to own. The drive is better than a lexus and its the best in its class. Like an economical BM or Merc. the legroom is unmatchable, i nickname it as a moving bedroom :D

    Pros: Ultra spacious, classy interiors, smooth ride

    Cons: Low on entertainment options

    2008 Avalon Is A Fine Car — It's a wonderful car. Yes there are things I'd like to see different, added to the car, such as the coin tray on the dash (like Camry's). I'd like to see some of the controls on the center console a bit different, and maybe more on the steering wheel (yes most of what I'd like to see is on the XLS model). The car is smooth, pretty quiet on the road. It gets pretty good gas mileage considering the V6 and size. I guess if it could be even more quiet at highway speeds, then I'd be as happy as I could be. I have 2500 miles on it so far, hardly enough to give a good review, but so far, so good. I just did have it in for service. It appears the VSS sensors got hit by some ice or whatever, and caused some issues. They had the car for the morning and said it was all set … time will tell. I'm thinking of driving an XLS model to see if it's any better, but I may just wait until the next new model comes out, or maybe start looking at an LS Lexus model. Yes I would recommend this car to anyone I know, looking for a great car.

    Pros: The 2009 Avalon

    Cons: not owning one

    Avalon — Performance - Amazing, matches well with lexus ES series, soft and smooth drive, a pleasure to handle it build quality - average, not so strong body, Appearance - Interiors are the best in class, spaciousness better than lexus, the rear seat is no less than a bed, classy dashboard with neat trims. Ownership costs - C'mon its a TOYOTA, however need 2 spend a lot of time n effort for upkeep of interiors.

    Pros: Smooth drive, classy interiors, exceptional in space and comfort

    Cons: Lacks modern entertainment system, amazing sound system but plays on audio CD and 6 channel radio,
