Good car for big dogs and their dog lovers.

We bought this large car because we had just adopted a very big dog that needed to lie down on the floor in the back. The floor in back is not blocked by front seat metal pieces. Also the back seat can fit large dog crates when we do dog rescue transports. The car rides very smooth even for people/dogs in the back seat. The trunk is huge. The car feels wide when you are sitting in it but it is not too long nose-to-rear-bumper, so not too hard to park in regular parking spaces. I am glad it is a light gray interior because it is hot in southern California. I wish there was a safe spot to put my purse when I drive. The middle "stowaway" spot is not big enough for a woman's purse. But it is good for stashing phone rechargers etc. I wish the glove compartment was deeper because every time we try to close it, the paperwork gets jammed in the latch.

Heated/air conditioned seats- the only feature a vehicle needs!

I own a used 2005 Toyota Avalon Limited, white with tan trim and leather seats. My favorite feature is the heated/air conditioned seats. This was the selling point over newer cars for me. The car is large and has and roomy with ample leg room in the rear. As a family of four, one in a car seat and two 6 feet plus we have traveled 1000's of miles comfortably. The back seat has a locking hatch to the trunk perfect for easy access while going down the road. I still receive 20-23 mpg. With the maintenance tracker I am able to log every oil/tire rotation/checkup, etc. right on my dash. This feature ensures we never miss important maintenance. As for reliability I have just replaced the front left and right bearings-the only major maintenance done so far! I will buy another Toyota Avalon when the time comes.

Great ride, low maintenance.

Last fall, we had an accident with a truck that hit us from behind with great speed ( 50-60 mph ). Our car saved our lives. We did not have any noticeable Injuries. ( later we had some head related symptoms from whiplash and loud sound of impact). The exterior rear took the brunt of the hit. No damage to interior. Instead of getting a new car - at the time we owned 3 ' the insurance co. paid for full restoration. Love the comfort of soft leather ( in great shape ), the smooth ride, seat comfort, fully adjustable, and feeling of luxury. Air conditioning in rear of car, multiple player ( CD, tape, radio), roof window - only thing missing is exterior sensors all around.). I will drive this car till I do not drive anymore, or the car dies. It is a workhorse!
