Toyota Avalon... Queen of Comfort Authentic Leather ...

To me, the Toyota brand is the absolute best there is for the average middle class person. I have owned my vehicle for approximately 10 years. It has been one of the most reliable vehicles I have ever owned. I am now 72 years old so have had many different makes and models of vehicles and always seem to return to the Toyota brand. The current mileage is at 226,000+. Regular and timely maintenance on any vehicle is a must. With that being said, this car has never asked for a new engine, different transmission or any other major expensive parts to obtain her graceful age and mileage. Even with the high mileage, she still handles and performs like a newer vehicle. I must say that with the comfort of heated seats especially during the winter months, it a pleasure to drive. With a V6 engine, side-curtain airbags, front wheel drive, dual air conditioning, plenty of head and body room, she seats 5 passengers very comfortably. The luggage capacity is 14.4 cubic feet so plenty of room for a mid size car. The trunk can be accessed through the back seat for easy access to drinks on a long trip.

2006 Toyota Avalon- a great and reliable car

The Toyota Avalon is an amazing car. From it's smooth ride to its beautiful interior, it is truly a gem. The nice leather seats are great for winter because they are heated. The gas mileage is pretty good (about 24) too. I love driving my car and think it would be a great car for a new driver! It's extremely reliable and doesn't break down often. The only thing wrong with it so far was the headlight and it is pretty expensive to fix. The light bulb itself is $115 which is incredibly expensive for a low beam. Other than that this car has been amazing. I also get a lot of compliments saying that my car looks way newer than it is.

Toyota Avalon - baller / soccer mom mobile!

Great gas mileage for a larger car. It is very reliable. I bought used with 110, 000 miles, and now have 130, 000 - no major repairs. Starts up like it is new. Great road trip vehicle as it is so spacious and comfortable. Safety rating is great, airbags seemingly everywhere, and beeps if you do not have your seatbelt on. Fantastic stock stereo system - jell. Avalon's in black with chrome rims look like a Lexus vehicle, but provides the reliability of a soccer mom car. Only minor issues that I have had - burnt out wiper motor at 20k miles ($50 fix) and I have a minor air conditioning leak. Otherwise - best car I have ever owned.
