What is this discussion about?

Great end of year deal on a 2012. Figured that it is a car that is loaded with every option offered and even though it may look boring, it is comfortable, as I spend a lot of time on the road. Couldn't get that deal on a 2013 and I had rented one of these this summer and really liked it. Add the 0% interest and Toyota care and I feel like I got a great deal.

Get the 2012 - A great car.
Hell, I wish I had mine back (instead of this 2013 LTD I got). Unless of course the 17" rims/tires really make that much difference.

Hi folks. Not sure if anyone out there is looking for a set of the new avalon 18" rims/tires, but I'd love to swap for a set of the 17" units.
I'll be traveling from Maine to Florida sometime in the next month. I typically travel - from Maine to Florida: 95 to 495 to 90 to 84 to 81 to 77 to 95 into Clearwater, FL. IF there is bad weather I stay on 95.
So, anyone interested in trading (I'll kick in a bit of money if need be).

Took a test drive in an Avalon Premium the other day. Was very impressed with the ride and feel of the car. It felt heavier than my 2011 Limited but in a good way, just more substantial. I took it on the freeway where I get a lot of 'float' in my 2011 and there was none with the 2013. Also like the way it felt in corners.
If I can get a good deal I think I'll order a Touring in Champagne Mica with Black interior. Checked out a Premium in Champagne Mica at another dealership and it was gorgeous outside but had the Almond interior which I do not like.
#281 of 716 Qi charging system.

The Qi charging system wont be arriving in vehicles with the tech package until april/may, according to Gulf States Toyota. They start rolling off the line in march, and the distribution takes a few weeks. It should be available as a dealer installed option for those of you who have taken delivery or ordered yours before then.

How about an update from those of you that have purchased the 2013?

Does any one know if a new 2012 Avalon is still available anywhere? I would need basic XL-no sunroof and no leather seats and preferably a light color. Not possible to find in my NY area but I am willing to travel to find this if available somewhere. Thanks
#284 of 716 My Hybrid Limited - Tech package
Jan 20, 2013 (4:53 pm)
Mine arrives in about two weeks and it will not have the Qi wireless charger, much to my disappointment. As cited before by someone else, the owner's manual now has the charger listed as an option separate from the Tech package. Still no definitive word from my dealer if it can be retro fitted by the dealer.

So, you already dumped the 2013. When the dust settles, please let us know how you feel about going back to the previous generation.
Also,to previous post
IRA toyota has 2012s in Ma. and NH.
Also, to a previous post. I have had many corporate lease cars. I have always maintained my personal cars better than corp. lease cars. The lease car gets parked outdoors. My owned car gets the garage. the lease car got dings in parking lots. The personal car was parked where it didn't get dinged.The leased car 7 oil changes per 50,000 miles per year. The personal car 2 oil changes per 10,000. per year. I will buy a low mileage one owner car any day over a 100,000 mile leased car, even with the price difference if they are the same model and age.
