I bought my 2010 two weeks ago. They gave me $3,000 off list, added the tax,
then gave me another $3,000 off that price. I could not pass it up. I think there was a period at the beginning of March when the heat was on Toyota because of the brakes,etc, and they came up with all these discounts and within two weeks time sucked down a lot of inventory and made a lot of Avalons disappear . It seems
the 2010's are gone and the 2011's have not come in yet because I cant find any on the new inventory lists at my local toyota dealers.

on my new 2010 avalon I am also averaging 27 mpg combined city and highway.
I live in a suburban city where there is a lot of distance between traffic lights

I walked in my dealer showroom and met with the manager from whom our company purchased 3 previous vehicles over the last six years. I had a copy of Saturdays newspaper with all the competing toyota dealers offers. He gave me 3,000 of list price, then added tax and then gave me another 3,000 of that number,and that is the final deal. That was all done approx March 10 or so, at the height of the toyota brake fiasco. Because of all those deals and offers I think almost all the 2010 avalons are gone and the 2011's are not even on the lots yet. When they arrive, I am again going to sit in one and compare headroom again. I swear they have lowered the head room but this time I am taking a measuring tape. I will make a post about that as soon as they come in. By the way,
I am averaging 27 mpg city/highway and got 37.7mpg on a 60 mile test drive
expressway at 59 mpg, with medium Ohio hills and flats.

What state are you in? There are still some 2010's in CA. Have you tried a search on autotrader.com? You can plug in your zip code and search by distance as well.
For my 2010, they took 4700 off the MSRP...added tax and then took another 3000.00 off for the rebate. It may be worthwhile seeing if you can locate a 2010. Your local dealer...or their internet manager can probably locate one for you.
Just a thought!

It was a 2010 Toyota Avalon Limited (loaded) with Nav, 8 way passenger, special paint, laser cruise, floormats and wheel locks .
Yes the over 7000.00 reduction and rebates were great. Unfortunately the sales tax (8.25%) and then registration (nearly 500.00!) etc takes a big bite out of that "savings". Don't you just love the government ?
#178 of 1735 2011 Avalon TV Ad

I just saw the new TV commercial for the 2011 Avalon. Boring, cheesy! Even the retirement home crowd will be turned off and put to sleep by this ad. Once again, Toyota undermines one of the best products it has in its fleet.

I have to say that I agree with you. I don't understand it at all. The '11 base Avalon is priced maybe $2K more than the Accord EX-L V6, has a ton more features, is big, gets the same mileage and is twice as refined. This is a really competitive car in that section but they don't advertise it as such. I really didn't know much about them until a co-worker got one in '04 and I was like, holy crap this thing is comfortable and I could swear I'm in a Lexus. I wish it wasn't a niche car but until they get the word out and maybe make it a touch sportier looking, it is not going to grow from its niche.
