We purchased a 2011 Avalon my wifes car, but I love to drive it also. Surprising power this car will get up and go. Super smooth and quiet ride, excellent stereo system and climate system that really works like it should. Incredible leg room in the backseat like a limo. The car handles great, parks easy, no wind noise. Power memory setting for two drivers for the seat and mirrors, I ******* had power tilt and telescope wheel instead of manual, not a big deal once its ******* fine. This car is Lexus like in the way it drives and the fit and finish. If you want a smooth quiet ride, this is it and the gas mileage is a pleasent bonus. Getting 29 mpg for average.

I have owned several autos in the past and my 2011 Toyota has the best acceleration, hill climbing ability, excellent gas mileage, quiet interior, and best ride of any vehicle I have ever owned. I get between 31-32 MPG driving the legal speed on the interstates. Review of road tests reflect most of them show 0-60 MPH in a little over 6 seconds and a top speed of 135 MPH. Some say the auto doesn't handle well on curves but I tell my wife it is my four door sports car. My only complaint is I wish the back seat folded instead of reclining.

We drove a 1998 S320 Mercedes for about 160,000 miles before we traded it in for a Avalon 2011 Limited. We test drove a number of new cars but hands down the 2011 Avalon Limited is far and away the best deal. Drives like a Dream, 31.6 MPG on Freeway, exras that beats most all others, and the price is half of the LS-460. If you don't like this car, maybe when you start wearing your pants above the crack of your butt and brush your teeth at least three times a week, you will. Or maybe you perfere to be a Want-a-Be and lease/drive a BMW that you can not pay for. GREAT CAR.

I've owner many cars during my years and this is the most refined blend of luxury, power ,handling and quiet I have ever experienced. Just got back from Jacksonville Fl a 750 mile trip on I95 where the speed limit is 70 and most drive 80. I got 30.5 mpg for the trip using regular gas. It's hard to believe a car of this size and comfort can be that effiecient. What a sound systerm. . This car is a rocket. You really have to watch your speed because theres no sensation of it. You ask and it delivers.

My last two cars were a Lexis ES and then a Lexis GS 300. This car, the 2011 Avalon, is far more comfortable, drives like a dream, has a wonderful braking system, plus has all the gadgets my last Lexis had. I have the greenish colored model and am extremely pleased with this vehicle, and at a MUCH lower price than the new Lexis 350. Car of the year!!! 5 stars all the way around.
Lexus LS for Half the Price

I have a 2100 Avalon Limited. This is my third Avalon. After two prior Avalons I was determined this time to get something different. So I test drove the Lexus, Hyundai, Buick, Mercedes,and Cadillac. Each time I realized that, for the money, you simply cannot beat the Avalon. This newest version is an awesome car, worthy of a much higher price tag. All the bells and whistles of the Lexus LS for half the price. It is also the roomiest and most comfortable car I have ever driven. Last night we went to dinner with friends and they said riding in the back, with all the leg room and reclining seats, was like riding in a limo. The new touch screen nav system is awesome, and the sound system includes I-pod and integrated cell phone. A back up camera is now standard. I have the new zephyr blue color, whch is absolutely beautiful. The only caveat I have is to make sure your garage is deep enough to hanlde this car. It is huge. But if you are looking for luxury and don't want to take a second mortgage to pay for it the Avalon is for you!
