Took a trip 300 mile trip and the Avalon got 34 mpg, excellent for a car this size.

It's sporty with a really smooth ride like an Avalon.

8 May

When I first test drove the Avalon Touring, its smooth quiet ride caught my attention.

24 Mar

Had a 2011 Avalon which was a more comfortable ride.

17 Jul

I went with the Avalon Limited, this car is just terrific..It feel like you are floating when you drive it, if possible go for the Limited, it has a lot of extra features.

27 Dec

Cold weather causes rattles from the rear deck.

24 Mar

Around 62 MPH has a constant rattle.

21 Jan

The flaw is a significant, sporadic wind and road noise on the driver’s side and when driving over 50 miles per hour it gets louder as your speed increases.

17 Nov

Nuisance rattle can't be found.

5 Sep

Also the lane change vibration does not work.

3 Jan

At this time Toyota is unwilling to do anything about the noise issue Hence we would be reluctant to recommend.

The Avalon has a great ride is quiet and very comfortable.

After quite a bit of research I was pretty much ready to make the 2021 Avalon Hybrid my next car.

14 Jan

Liked my 2018 Avalon Hybrid and the new one gets 2 or 3 more miles per gallon as advertised.

This time I wanted a hybrid, and the only product on the market at this size and (somewhat) reasonable price is the Avalon.

With the Avalon I scored around 43 mpg (still pretty good)

25 May

If you've ever driven a Lexus, there is much the same feel as far as the smooth ride feeling and low engine noise.

21 Mar

2) The motor rattles like it needs a valve adjustment when idling, esp. cold.

13 Jan

However, with only 69 miles I'm experiencing rough shifts, excessive vibration at the steering wheel, and rattling coming from the engine compartment (seems to be when the radiator fans turn on).

28 Dec

But when I drove it on the Freeway at 60 to 70 miles per hour I had increased noise and vibration and in the cabin from the wind and tire noise on my way home.

27 Dec

There was some road noise

9 Dec

The seats are uncomfortable and it sounds like it has road noise and nothing

29 Nov

The chrome beauty rings on the speedometer and tach buzz at time, grab an move them little and the buzz stops, a tiny bit of dense rubber wedged under the ring would likely stop it permanently,..on of these days, I'll do that.

2 Nov

On highway speeds, my Avalon was a bit quieter in terms of wind noise,

8 Sep

The front plate mount rattles super loud at idle.

6 Aug

The wind noise is horrific at the drivers door.

26 Jan

I found out that Toyota had sold Camrys and Rav 4s with a software problem in which certain cars never fully shut off and were draining there own batteries!

8 Jan

Our 2020 camry le has had a dead battery twice with only 8000 miles.

9 Dec

Sounds like the battery life sucks.

5 Dec

We've had this car less than 6 months, very little mileage and the battery has gone dead twice.

29 Nov

but I'm expecting to replace it maybe as soon as year 3, maybe it will go 4 or more but OEM batteries and OEM tires tend to not be the very best.

28 Nov

I would advise anyone interested in buying to 2020 Camry to be aware of the battery drain issues.

2 Oct

The car is in the shop again for battery drain issues.

30 Sep

Battery problems.

23 Sep

Battery problems!!!

23 Sep

but that may be an engineering issue with the drive train and the battery.

13 Mar

Toyota took care of the previous issue with the 2018 - 2020 in regards to the CVT transmission issues.

13 Jan

The rough shifts are mostly during acceleration and deceleration at low speeds and especially when I'm reducing the speed slowly.

10 Jan

Transmission doesn't know what gear it wants to be in and shutters during some gear changes.

27 Dec

Now let’s talk about the transmission.

29 Nov

but at some speeds there is some throttle lag and I've assumed that is again transmission related, again new it before purchasing.

30 Sep

Transmission dose not shift correctly.

21 Jul

If you dont mind the noticeable hiccups in the transmission, then the car would be fine for everyday driving,

22 Nov

I driven a dozen or so rentals with CVT transmissions and I never liked how during an acceleration, it always felt like the engine was always trying to catch-up with the transmission, until finally it did.

25 Jul

Paddle and sports e-tronic shifter features for a CVT Transmission - The downshifts feel glorious and helps a lot on the downhills. 3.

21 Jul

Had a terrible experience with another manufacturer's CVT transmission, so I'm pleased to have an 8 speed with overdrive in this sedan.

26 Dec

Currently getting "parking break malfunction" alert EVERY TIME I DRIVE ANYWHERE, which also means brake hold (which I don't really use) and cruise control are down.

We had left the car in our driveway undriven for 24 hours and when we went out to start the car it said "Smart key malfunction" and then it totally died.

18 Dec

Finally, constant warnings: "Secondary breaking/collision/LDA malfunction (check engine)" warning lights go on for a few days and then go off on their own.

I wont go into too much detail about the infotainment system, which is the other glaring failure in this car, at least in its current iteration.

27 Dec

I can choose to have navigation on the right, phone / projection on the bottom left, and audio info on the top left.

Scout GPS is useless without cellphone coverage.

After using it for a while I removed the app from my phone and bought a garmin system.

I also live in a rural area and everything depends on data which I dont get well or at all in certain area deeming the navigation inoperable when it even works at all.

22 Feb

The Hybrid unit cannot be ordered with nav, also the app entune3.0 does not work with iPhoneX.

The biggest disappointment is the navigation/infotainment system.

The Avalon is an amazing vehicle.

1 Oct

The Toyota Avalon Hybrid performs just as well in acceleration & responsiveness.

20 Aug

This new Avalon rides just like all my other ones.All my other Avalons required minimum maintenance for their life (I traded my last Avalon with 97,000 miles on it, another one with 88,000 miles).

15 Jul

The Toyota safety sense is remarkably good in the new avalon and the central console is little detached from the dashboard which really employees a good contour to driver in terms of driver visibility.

28 Jun

To me, the cabin in front seems smaller than our older Avalon, and the Limited seats,

28 May

I had a 2017 Avalon Limited and loved the car which had a very smooth transmission, sorry I did not buy it after the lease.

20 Nov

First the bad: 1) The avalon no longer has rain sensing windshield wipers 2) The automatic high beam lights are worthless.

8 Oct

The only thing it doesn't have is rain-sensing windshield wipers,

14 Dec

One guy at the dealership quipped, "all you have to do is open the hood first then lift the wiper", like the detail shop or car wash people will know to do that first before they break it off.

The Highlander has everything the Avalon is lacking and more, especially AWD, and Safety Sense 2.0, which the Avalon should have had at the getgo.

5 Jul

The Avalon Limited continues to run flawlessly on the road and the mileage has settled into the 43/44 range.

12 Apr

Great car Update the Avalon logo sill plates The metal is discolored dealer is going to look at them and determine the issue

19 Mar

Putting those issues aside, the Avalon performs well and is a good looking car.

15 Dec

I was blown away with the performance,comfort and gas mileage on the Avalon.

23 Nov

The Avalon handles beautifully on winding, hilly interstates and I love and now trust the safety features like dynamic cruise and 360 degree cameras.

27 Apr

>JBL sometimes rattles the headliner (Yes the headliner).

2 Sep

Voila, noise gone after reinserting the filter,

23 Nov

Finally, I had noticed a new creaking sound in the steering wheel when making left turns.

16 Nov

And a bit more noise from the engine reving and tires

24 Oct

Seats were hard, ride was very stiff, road noise was loud, engine was very weak and noisy.

31 Mar

Low ground clearance, if the speed bumps are high you will bump the engine covers on it and the impact may rip off your Engine Splash Shield and you might have to replace them.

16 Apr

but reliability has yet to be proven as the engine was first used in 2016 models.

2 Sep

However, the blower motor has been making an intermittent noise as if it was rubbing against something, or the bearing is going.

16 Nov

although a few small problems ( it does sit low, a little hard to get in and out for someone with bad knees, it needs more storage like a sun-glass compartment in the overhead and a bigger glove box.)

26 Apr

18 had small trunk issue that they fixed in the 19.

This car doesn't, the battery is under the rear seat and the gas tank is smaller than the non hybrid.

Of course the dealer's service tech couldn't hear any noise so nothing was done, so I'm trying to check YouTube and see what I can do myself.

First off there is no onboard navigation with the Entune plus system & you have to use this horrible Scout GPS App that you have to pay for monthly.

Our 2020 camry le has had a dead battery twice with only 8000 miles.

9 Dec

Sounds like the battery life sucks.

5 Dec

We've had this car less than 6 months, very little mileage and the battery has gone dead twice.

29 Nov

but I'm expecting to replace it maybe as soon as year 3, maybe it will go 4 or more but OEM batteries and OEM tires tend to not be the very best.

28 Nov

I would advise anyone interested in buying to 2020 Camry to be aware of the battery drain issues.

2 Oct

The car is in the shop again for battery drain issues.

30 Sep

Battery problems.

23 Sep

Battery problems!!!

20 Sep

Now reading about battery issue that Toyota refuses to solve.

23 Jul

At 6,000 miles the front breaks started grinding, I took it in, they replaced them, never a problem since.

25 Mar

The brakes are TERRIBLE.

26 Jan

For a 2020 that was a few months old I was shocked to find the dash board flashing strangely, the emergency brake in a locked position, and no sound from the engine compartment when attempting to start my car.

25 Jan

but despite applying the brakes very hard I ended up with the entire front end being crushed like it was a tin can.

10 Jan

The adaptive cruise won't pass cars going slower in a different lane and will slam on the brakes if it sees something going slower on the side of the road or a turning lane.

26 Dec

Currently getting "parking break malfunction" alert EVERY TIME I DRIVE ANYWHERE, which also means brake hold (which I don't really use) and cruise control are down.

They also have useful features like brake hold so you don’t have to press on the foot brake pedal when you are at traffic lights waiting to turn green.

Brake noise 2018 Toyota Hybrid XLE - Toyota HQ refused to fixed the noise coming from the Master Cylinder booster..

8 Aug

Also, if a car ahead pulls into a right turn lane, the Camry brakes hard as if you were going to run into them.

13 Mar

Toyota took care of the previous issue with the 2018 - 2020 in regards to the CVT transmission issues.

13 Jan

The rough shifts are mostly during acceleration and deceleration at low speeds and especially when I'm reducing the speed slowly.

10 Jan

Transmission doesn't know what gear it wants to be in and shutters during some gear changes.

27 Dec

Now let’s talk about the transmission.

29 Nov

but at some speeds there is some throttle lag and I've assumed that is again transmission related, again new it before purchasing.

30 Sep

Transmission dose not shift correctly.

21 Jul

If you dont mind the noticeable hiccups in the transmission, then the car would be fine for everyday driving,

22 Nov

I driven a dozen or so rentals with CVT transmissions and I never liked how during an acceleration, it always felt like the engine was always trying to catch-up with the transmission, until finally it did.

25 Jul

Paddle and sports e-tronic shifter features for a CVT Transmission - The downshifts feel glorious and helps a lot on the downhills. 3.

21 Jul

Had a terrible experience with another manufacturer's CVT transmission, so I'm pleased to have an 8 speed with overdrive in this sedan.

I was looking for a car to enjoy in my retirement and the Avalon is perfect.

3 Sep

Avalon is a quite, solid, roomy sedan with great fuel economy.

4 Jul

This is my third Avalon limited I have owned and they have all been wonderful and 99.9% reliable and very pleasant to drive.

21 Apr

On uneven roads (sub divisions), the Avalon isn't that comfortable, in fact the Camry does a better job.

23 Dec

On balance, the car's a delight and I'm sure this Avalon will someday be replace with another one (or a Lexus ES).

2 Apr

Toyota's are reliable and Avalon has luxurious appointments.

19 Mar

I personally give the Avalon a 5 star safety rating.

1 Oct

Not so as I could not be more pleased with the Avalon fuel economy.

27 Aug

I was told by the sales person, when I bought the car, that once you own a Avalon that You will never go back.

7 Jul

but when I was told that "for just $100 more" I could own the Avalon, and given that the width was the same (but roomier inside) as the Camry, and just 2 in.

25 Sep

Quiet, no rattles, squeaks, wind noise, quote engine at cruise,

31 Jan

Now the caveat, the noise level is horrible.

27 Feb

The only weak area that I have found is in the quality of materials used for arm rest and center console as they are cracking.

6 Sep

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.

25 Apr

Difficult to cancel destination once the GPS is set 2.

11 Feb

Overall I enjoy my Toyota Avalon easy to get in and out of, two things I don't like are the navigation system hard to use instead I use my cell phone second the low profile tires make for a terrible ride.

29 Oct

The navigation system is very hard to see when in night mode.

7 Jul

BUT: visibility out the rear window is partically non-existant; The steering is very "soft" and took quite some time getting used to; The built-in GPS system is TERRIBLE ("Turn right" - doesnt specify, if there's more than one road/exit!

31 May

but chose the Toyota because the Lexus Nav system has a dangerous and hard to use mouse pad or joystick to control the Nav.

25 Apr

14 Dec

No navigation system to speak of, voice commands don't work most of the time, audio system lacks intuitive controls.

6 Sep

One thing I failed to mention in 2018 is the difficulty of using my Samsung Galaxy S8 map app integrated into the phone while driving with Bluetooth turned on.

21 Apr

but the three speakers in the rear cannot be heard at all.

23 Dec

The tires were replaced with a quieter set (Yokahoma YK740) and the old-tech 2013 factory stereo a refreshed with a newer 2019 (Kenwood/Focal/JBL) system bringing it up-to-date with AppleCarPlay and Android Auto.

I compare Toyota Avalon with any other glass monitoring system and it bounces off the bottom as far as driver preference might be.

5 Jan

Normally a warning sound indicates something else is wrong.

14 Dec

Never breaks down and still has all original parts except tires have been replaced.

11 Feb

When you hit a bump in the road you feel it in your spine, why doesn't Toyota offer regular tires on the Avalon?

I am selling it now because I want to get an Avalon for a more comfortable and quieter ride plus it has all of the newer safety technology.

11 Jun

but one might go slightly insane listening to the sound of bees and rattles.

11 Apr

The only reason I gave it 4 out of 5 stars is road noise.

7 Dec

You can hear some noise

23 Nov

but seat comfort and an attempt at cockpit noise should be expected.

20 Nov

I feel every bump even the sign painted on the road and then the noise from outside.

24 Aug

Road noise is horrible, seats are uncomfortable, and I regret buying it every single day! !

3 May

A little noisy,

24 Nov

My biggest complaint is canon noise.

16 Oct

Road noise is harsh

6 Sep

They are all made of cheap materials and they all have road noise and many have poor braking.

11 Jun

but one might go slightly insane listening to the sound of bees and rattles.

9 Nov

Con: Engine sounds very coarse, poor sound insulation, speaker quality is not very pleasing, the trunk has no physical

3 May

but heard there is a problem with the door wiring just above the lower speaker.

16 Feb

Proud owner of 2018 Corolla IM; Pros are: Front collision warning, Fuel economy:31MPG, Good road handling, Good defrosting system, Voice call, back camera, lane changing warning.

26 Jan

Lastly, I recently started experiencing a short in the wiring resulting in the front driver side speaker cutting out.

6 Sep

So it would sound like this car is not that great- right?

1 Sep

An upgraded version needs a better infotainment system for sure that hopefully includes navigation and Android Play, and a better steering wheel

8 Oct

but struggles to gain speed going uphill.

3 May

The plastic front overhang is too low and has broken off twice when hitting the curb stones in parking lots while parking at low speed.

4 Dec

12 Apr

The CVT has smart intelligence and shifts just like a geared transmission when needing to speed up or down quickly and I thought it would not be so.

12 Apr

When the cruise is set and you go down a hill it works to maintain you set speed so you are not talking to officer friendly at the bottom.

24 May

Now I was without bumper to bumper coverage and it cost me another $1300 approx to fix the compressor.

9 Nov

button to release, engine hood has no hood cover to prevent heat and sound(way too much cost control IMHO), no second row vent.

23 Jan

Then there is the defrost that doesn’t work much.

22 Feb

Upon inspection I found that the piece doesn't meet snugly with the vent, so I glued some foam to the base of the trim piece and that seemed to fix that problem.

3 Jun

Also has an extremely rough idle after being driven for about an hour, feels like its going to stall.

20 Nov

I feel every bump even the sign painted on the road and then the noise from outside.

26 Jan

but there wasn't a good solid place on the trunk lid ; I was able to loop it through a plastic part there but I was afraid it was going to break if I hit bumps and the trunk lid bounced up, so I had to take it real slow on my way home.
