Toyota lover. Love the performance, ride, dependability, and the brand.

2008 Toyota Avalon

I have been an owner of a Toyota for over 14 years. I had my Camry for 12 years. I decided to upgrade to an Avalon and I love it. The performance is excellent. I can get to 60 mph in seconds and out of the way of traffic. The ride is very comfortable and quiet. It feels like a luxury ride with the heat and cool leather seats and cruise control. I love the light indicator that tells me my tires are low, which helps with gas mileage and performance/ride of the car to perform at its optimal level. I like the slickline of the car and the sunroof. It is a nice ride.

- Susan J

As a driver and owner, I appreciate the reliability and economy of owning this car.

2008 Toyota Avalon

What I like: reliability, fuel economy, ease of repairs, luxury accommodations, size for my family, ergonomics of interior and design of functions like controls, navigation, stereo, etc. What I dislike: I miss features that were included in my suburban that are not available for this car: 4WD, towing capacity, cargo space for trips or projects involving large transport (diy, furniture rehab, etc). I live in an area that is often snowy or icy in the winter and may consider purchasing another truck to replace or supplement the Toyota.

- Amanda J

It gets up and goes and is a great highway machine.

2008 Toyota Avalon Touring

It is a nice, smooth ride. It is built very well, meaning dense, not cheap. It has a lot of luxury features, and a lot of space. It is powerful. However, this particular year is known to have a defect with the headlights going out at random times. You have to turn them off and on again all the time. The problem progressively gets worse, and I hear it is an expensive fix. There are also 7 different open recalls for this year and model!

The 2008 Toyota is a very comfortable, smooth, and fun vehicle to drive.

2008 Toyota Avalon

The 2008 Toyota Avalon is very dependable. It provides a nice quiet and smooth ride. It is equipped with a v-6 engine that provides power when needed. For comfort it has hot and cold controls for both front seats. Dual controls for heat and air conditioning. It is also equipped with an a stereo with a multi disc mp3 player. It also has power windows and power locks as well as a sunroof. It is a very comfortable and fun car to drive.

Awesome Toyota Avalon with excellent responsiveness.

2008 Toyota Avalon

My car is very comfortable, has a smooth ride, heated seats, classic look, and is sea green. I seldom need to have the car maintained, but do change the oil regularly. The car is very responsive ands can easily have three passengers in the back seat which semi reclines. There are bucket seats in the front. This car is extremely reliable and responsive when needing to speed up or slow down and handles well in rain and snow.

- Nancy R

The best if the Avalon Limited Edition

2008 Toyota Avalon Limited

I love my Avalon because of all the bells and whistles! Leather interior, wood grain, heated and cooling driver and passenger seats. The back seat reclines. It has an automatic sunscreen for the back windshield that goes down when the car is out in reverse and goes back up when you put the car in drive. The back sunscreen also has a button up front to put it up or down as you wish.

- Ashley B

Great family car whether you are driving to work or traveling long distances.

2008 Toyota Avalon Base

The vehicle has good spacing and makes for a comfortable drive. Also, there have been minimal maintenance problems. The AC did need maintenance. However, with regular maintenance, this could be a long lasting car. It has been very spacious for our family of four. We are pretty tall peeps, so it was important to invest in something that didn't have us all cramped.

- Ashley P

Dependable car, few issues.

2008 Toyota Avalon

It is a dependable car, to say the least. We bought it used and it had quite a lot of miles already on it, but it is running just fine for us. The only issue that we have had is that the steering wheel shakes when we brake and it sometimes makes a loud squealing noise when the air conditioner is on when we turn the car on. I would recommend this car.

- Brittany D

Perfect performance and satisfaction.

2008 Toyota Avalon

My 2008 Avalon has never disappointed me. I have over 250, 000 miles on it and still runs like a champ. Will up and go as soon as you press the gas and stop just as soon as you press the brake. Never had any problems with the way it ran. Leather interior still looks just as good as when I bought it. Seat coolers and warmers are such a nice feature!

- Erika W

Toyota is extremely dependable.

2008 Toyota Avalon

Really easy to steer and drive. Comfortable on very long road trips. Great gas mileage and keeping the oil and oil filter changed every 3, 500 miles allows the excellent built engine to last for years. It has never required more than scheduled and normal maintenance so therefore it is fairly inexpensive to own and operate.

- Ralph H

It's like driving on a cloud

2008 Toyota Avalon XL

Smooth ride. Large trunk space. Spacious seating. Front and back. Lots of extra features. Power windows, power steering, sunroof, and heated seats. Gets great mileage. It also has tinted windows. A great extra. Especially during the summer months. It also has leather seating. Which is extremely important for easy clean up

- Misty R

Small cons big pros for the Avalon.

2008 Toyota Avalon XL

The battery turns off sometimes & the wipers work when the want to, but overall it is a really great vehicle. It is very spacious, with a sunroof. The seats are leather & it has a big dashboard for the radio. All in all this vehicle is a great vehicle, we take it every time we go out of town.

- Samantha R

This Toyota was the first non American vehicle I have owned.

2008 Toyota Avalon

I like the comfort of the smooth ride and it is quite with very little road noise. I have had very few problems. I feel though that I might like a truck or SUV for my next purchase. I am not crazy with the low profile of the Avalon. I prefer to ride higher for better rode sight.

- Harold D

Comfortable and safe vehicle.

2008 Toyota Avalon

Roomy interior. Smooth ride. Safe and dependable. Gets good gas mileage. Powerful engine. Attractive and sleek. The ac is cold with many temperature options. The breaks work very well and the vehicles handles beautifully. The speakers are crisp. The drink holder is convenient.

- Lisa P

This is our third Avalon and our least favorite of the three.

2008 Toyota Avalon

I love the styling and comfortable size and ride of this Avalon sedan. I also love the sunroof and other luxury interior accessories. It also has an extremely comfortable ride. I dislike that we have had to repair several engine parts in the few years we have had this car

- Marguerite B

The Toyota Avalon is a great car. I would definitely purchase another one.

2008 Toyota Avalon XL

It is always dependable. It gets very good gas mileage and it looks very classy. It is silver so it stays clean fairly well. It tells me how much gas (in miles) I have left and it tells me when maintenance is due. It has defrost on both the front windshield and the rear.

- Jan M

It is what we thought it would be!

2008 Toyota Avalon XL

The revised six speed transmission is a marked improvement in smoothness, gas mileage, and reliability over the 5 speed autos of 2005-07. Also, the car was freshened on the exterior and has an iPod plug. The one issue with the '08 model year is the headlamp accessories.

- Dwane S

This car is a real joy to own.

2008 Toyota Avalon

No problems just scheduled maintenance. It is beautiful, 6 speeds leather interior thick carpet 40 miles to the gallon. Living in the mountains, it gets hot and really cold and my Avalon s heater and air-conditioning works great. There is nothing I do not like about it.

- Michael E

Great car all around. Single, Married, works for all.

2008 Toyota Avalon XL

This car is very spacious and comfortable. Great for long drives. Good gas mileage. Great for families. Never had any mechanical issues. Just basic maintenance. V6 allows for excellent acceleration. Large trunk space and roomy backseat. The heated seats are wonderful.

- Jason S

My car has lasted for a while. It is strong and sturdy, and I feel safe driving.

2008 Toyota Avalon

I love my vehicle, however it is slightly wider than I would like. I am considering buying a newer model of the same make, because they indicate when cars drive in your blind spot, and they have a camera for backing up. I really like that my car has cruise control.

- Anna C

Toyota Avalon 2008. Gets you there in comfort and (some) style

2008 Toyota Avalon XL

It drives smoothly but has a significant blind spot which took some getting used to. Comfortable on long drives and good trunk space. Easy to maintain and very reliable. I love the seat warmers in the winter. Pick up is solid. Miles to the gallon could be better.

- Elisabeth S

Great car. Great on gas mileage!

2008 Toyota Avalon XL

Very nice car. It is a Toyota! No problems since we bought it in Feb of 2018. Great on gas mileage. I believe as long as you keep up on the oil changes it will last you for quite a while. We've drove it from TN to il and back and have had absolutely no problems.

- Chelsea H

Toyota Avalon is a great car! Highly recommended

2008 Toyota Avalon Limited

There are not any problems that I have noticed. This is a very reliable car and it drives very smoothly. There is also a lot of legroom in the back, a lot more than other similar cars. Takes standard unleaded gas which is nice. Has pretty good gas mileage.

- Patrick O

It has cruise control auto braking

My first new car!!! I was able to even pay it off very quickly.

2008 Toyota Avalon

I love my car but at 150,000 miles my transmission started slipping. After have 2 opinions I had to get a new transmission. I was told that they see that often. Toyotas are supposed to last much longer then that!!!

These are the things I love about my car: 1. The large trunk 2. The horsepower 3. The luxurious interior 4. The heated seats 5. The ability for 3 people to seat comfortably in the back seat

- Roberta G

I really like the car. It is a sedan and that was one reason I bought it. It is a comfortable ride for distance travel, However I was used to a Ford Explorer before this car and miss some of the features offered by the Explorer, as I am an outdoor enthusiast and camp and fish. The Avalon has been trouble free and very comfortable. I feel Toyota makes quality vehicles.

2008 Toyota Avalon

It is a quality vehicle and rides smoothly. There is very little road noise and the car has many features such as hands free phone use and many operational feature on the steering column.

- Harold D

Toyotas have a great track record of being dependable for a very long time. My car has several more years in her.

2008 Toyota Avalon

Smooth ride, decent gas mileage, dependable. I dislike that the sun shade gets stuck often because the fuse is constantly blowing. The cost to replace the part is crazy expensive!

- Kimber R

Toyota Avalon and the issue with headlights.

2008 Toyota Avalon

It's a great car if taken care of. The only problem we've had was with the headlights. After a certain amount of time, the LED lights will go out and it can be an expensive repair.

- Toya D

It has keyless entry, which I love. It is very reliable

2008 Toyota Avalon

It drives very quietly. It has been very reliable. it is comfortable. I wish the Nav system screen would come on automatically, instead of having to press a button to activate it.
