It is solidly built, dependable, and I feel safe when I drive my car, & I feel my passengers are safer than they would be in a smaller, lighter car.

I've had my 2000 Toyota Avalon since 2007, & it is the most reliable car i've Ever owned. It is comfortable, smooth, has plenty of room for passengers, is solidly built, & I feel safe when I drive it. During the past year, i've Had to do a little more work on it, like replacing some parts, but nothing out of the ordinary considering it has over 143,500 miles on it. I love this car & feel my investment has been well worth it.

My vehicle is an older model and has the usual older car issues. Door handles on the drivers side interior and rear exterior have broken and needed to be replaced. The interior headliner has begun to come loose and the clear coat is peeling. The cruise control no longer works. It gets ok gas mileage for a 6 cylinder and runs very well. It is very comfortable to drive and very reliable.

Our Toyota Avalon had been a great car. It has very comfortable electronic seats, great sound system, and has great power (it is a 6 cylinder). For the most part it has been really reliable, although some of the smaller features have broken such as the motorized windows and keyless entry, but it is an older vehicle now so I would expect some of those things to occur
