Went to look at a vehicle, my truck had a lot of miles and was starting to cost. So I was greeted by Alexx, and within hours I was leaving with a newer model truck of the make that I traded in. All was great and staff all seemed nice and I was not pressured I told them what I needed and wanted and they worked to get me in a newer Truck.

Glare is a safety issue.

I have been driving this car for a year. The vehicle came with tint installed by the dealer. The rear glass is angled in such a way that it produces excessive glare. This affects visibility, and increases the risk of a collision when backing up or shifting lanes. I've already had a few close calls because of this issue. In addition, the navigation screen is likewise prone to excessive glare from sunlight passing thru the front glass. Not only is it difficult to see the navigation map but it limits the usefulness of the back up camera. I have the touring version, equipped with 18 inch wheels. When the road is well paved, the ride is quiet and smooth; however, road imperfections are transmitted into the cabin in a pronounced manner. I also own a Mazda 3 and a Volkswagen Golf, and these compact cars absorb bumps and potholes better. Lastly, Entune is so erratic that it is exasperating to use. I've owned several Toyotas in the past, and I have to say, this one was a bit disappointing.

Horrible Ride

Sixed straight Toyota and fourth straight Avalon. Will probably look for a better ride next time. Had this car for two years and can't wait to try something else with a more comfortable ride. My bottom can't take the rough ride. Sat in a friend's Cadillac the other day and what a joy!

Horrible front seat cushions. (*Hybrid model)

Toyota needs to do something about the comfort of the front seats!!!!!!! After a 1/2 an hour or more on the road your bottom is in pain. Driver and passenger have insufficient cushioning and/or poor design. *

Worst entertainment system ever

Besides the Avalon I currently have a 2008 Ford Edge and a 2015 Ford Fusion. I bought the Avalon to replace a 2005 Cadillac because the Caddy had a hard life and was worn out and didn't want to spend Cadillac size dollars on another car. All have order of magnitude better entertainment systems than my new Avalon. Even the aging Cadillac. The stereo sounds as if there is only a single dash mounted speaker and fidelity is worse than AM of my other cars. GPS needs to ne replaced too. The only function I find acceptable is the hands free phone. We like the styling, ride, comfort, handling, safety features and performance. Gas mileage is not spectacular, but acceptable for a V6. If I could I figure out how to replace the entertainment system and those awful speakers I would in a heartbeat.

Lexus price but not Lexus quality

After disappointment with the quality decline in Honda's interior trim I decided to go with Toyota and thought their flagship would be well worth it. I assumed I was getting a car commensurate in quality with its price, but boy was I wrong. First, the positive. The engine is well matched with this car and it has adequate pickup, particularly in sport mode. It makes a very subtle but noticeable difference in acceleration. Unfortunately, sport mode must be selected every time you drive as the car only retains normal or eco mode when you turn off the engine. Minor detail. The other positive is that the interior is very well laid out and looks great. As for quality, the wind and road noise is quite noticeable in this car. It's not a deal killer, but it is more than I would expect for something with a $40k+ MSRP. There are also some really stupid choices Toyota made with this car such as the Nav/phone system. I understand that certain things deactivate when you're moving, but using hands-free calling can be a hassle because if you need to call a number with an automated phone tree (for example, calling Toyota) and you must enter in a number prompt instead of speaking it, you have to pick up your phone and dial it from there. The number pad on the car's screen deactivates. So much for the "safety" aspect of hands-free. As for quality, Toyota must've gone on vacation. My analog speedometer is about 3 mph off from the digital one, a minor deal but an annoyance regardless. This is common to these cars, but Toyota will not fix it as 1-3 mph variance is "within tolerance." The seat heaters are nice, but the seat coolers are next to useless. I've had seat coolers that work, but these don't do much at all. There is also an annoying buzz/rattle coming from the door panels when the radio is on. After four fruitless attempts to get this fixed at the dealership and with no help from the corporate office I finally took the doors apart myself and added a ton of soundproofing material. It mitigated the issue, but I really don't think DIY is an acceptable solution to a manufacturing issue on a new, much less "flagship" vehicle. Then, there's the stereo itself. It sounds great... when it works. It randomly loses connectivity with my phone and has, on multiple occasion, gone into a sequence of rebooting itself. The problem is intermittent and cannot be replicated, so Toyota offers no assistance on fixing it. Lastly, the car has developed an intermittent hesitation when it starts. As best I could, I tracked it down to times when the car sat for an hour or two and the temperature was warm and humid. I even provided video proof of it occurring. However, Toyota stated that since they cannot replicate the issue in shop it is a non-issue and they refuse to fix it. It has not yet kept the car from starting or running, but I think given time it will be an issue. I've purchased several cars over the years and must say that this is the most disappointing one I've owned. It's not the worst, but I expected much more based on Toyota's reputation and the fact that this is their flagship.

Great Great Car!

This is my 3rd Toyota, I have had a 2005 Toyota Solara, a 2012 Toyota Camry and now a 2015 Toyota Avalon XLE Touring! I completely love this car! I am in my 30's and this car is awesome! Definitely not a old persons car anymore. It is just beautiful, and rides nicely. I really do not have any complaints, but the fuel cost are so low for a V6 and you can use regular gasoline. I feel like I am driving a Lexus.

Toyota Avalon-not just for the silver set anymore

We have had exceptional luck with our Toyota cars, as they've lasted 300k+ miles. We started looking at Camrys for our 21 year old daughter. But once she saw the inside of an Avalon, there was no other choice for her. She LOVES the styling, and there are all sorts of tech features that she can't live without. According to her, few people over age 55 could take advantage of all the technology (but they can still drive it!). As a marketing and animation major, she has a real eye for design, and this car won hands down over many others.

A stylish hybrid sedan

I just got the 2015 limited in year end clearance; I got the best price for the best car. I test BMW 3 series, Cadillac ATS, Buick Regal and Lacrosse. I found Avalon limited on the top line in term of luxury, tech, stylish, smooth and quiet on free way on par with Lacrosse but better tech, gas mileage, expect more reliable than Lacrosse. But I was disappointed a bid on free way, I don't much wind but tire sound with the road on the 18' wheel. The Avalon has plenty of power though it has only 268 hp and 248 torque compared to 3 series, regal, lacrosse, ATS are more power and torque but I did not feel much different. The ATS, Regal, and 3 Series are good for quick move and corner but more windy on freeway when Lacrosse on the to ride on freeway-- smooth, quiet, and balance due to its heavy weight 4000lb vs Avalon 3560lb but 18city/28 hwy vs 21city/31 hwy. Quality, luxury, stylish, and bargain price at the end of the year make me to pick Avalon limited over the rest.

Duck!

The ride is sporty. . .not luxury. Stiffer ride with 17" wheels. Getting into the driver's seat requires you to be a contortionist. Once inside. . .it's great. Comfortable seats. . .responsive, easy steering. . .good acceleration. My wife likes the car. . .I can't deal with the contortion required to get into the driver's seat. There is also some wind noise that is greater than it should be. I would prefer wheels that provide more of a cushion. My reason to trade is the issue with getting into the vehicle. I can't do that day after day.

have the car about 1 month- i believe most people will be satisfied- i think it looks good, has a nice interior for its class and was reasonably priced- it seems to me it is truly a car that is really not a luxury car but is also a step up from the ordinary

terrific car that is let down by poor service

This car is the poor man's Lexus for sure. The ride and handling and power are excellent. The interior is nice but could be better. Research the price... my car was $40K and I walked out with it selling for $36K. Be sure and do your research....

So great I did it again!

We purchased a 2015 Avalon in July. It was a nice vehicle but the more I drove it, the more I realized it did not meet my expectations. Due to it's reputation, I expected the "flotation" ride of a luxury car. I also had issues with wind noise and bumping my head getting in and out. (Not a vehicle for people who have any difficulty getting in and out of a car). To say I was extremely disappointed is an understatement. The dealership could do nothing about the wind noise....... we even tested one straight off the lot when I came to pick mine up from Service. It did the same thing. My aunt had purchased a 2015 Av Hybrid around the same time. When I spoke with her, she said that she had not realized now noisy her 2015 Avalon was until they went on a trip in a friend's Ford F150. Now that's sad that a pickup was quieter than a luxury car!!! I traded in a 2013 Kia Soul that I just loved other than the ride. It had zero wind noise!!!!!! Complained to Toyota's Houston division but since it is not a safety hazard, they deemed nothing was wrong with the car or it's design and offered no alternatives in terms of helping me purchase a different vehicle. My only recourse was to go back to the dealership and trade it in. I now own a 2016 4Runner and LOVE it. Yes, it is not sound proof, but it rides better and is more comfortable than my LAST purchase of a "luxury" vehicle. I use the term "luxury" loosely and sarcastically. BCS

Avalon has got it intact

just purchased a 2015 Avalon XLE yesterday for my wife. This is our 4th Av with the last being a 2006. Greatly improved. Enjoyed all our previous Av's and sure we are going to Love this one. Style, comfort, great ride and AWESOME performance. Toyota has hit this one on the money. A lot of features not expected from a sedan in this price point. Looking forward to many years of dependable and enjoyable driving. Very well pleased.

I've owned two Mercedes (Purchased new_ and two Caddies (purchased new) and this car compares very well with both of at less cost and certainly no sacrifice in looks.
