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

2006 Toyota Avalon XLS

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.

The back/rear seats recline.

2006 Toyota Avalon XLS

Interior is well designed, and obviously thought-out. Seats are comfortable. Plenty of room within the cabin. Trunk space is excellent. Gas mileage could be better, but suits my needs. Very reliable; haven't had problems in years. Always starts on cold mornings. Performance is adequate. Acceleration in town is good, but loses its edge at highway speeds.

Great car to drive have hardly had to get it worked on at 260000 miles.

2006 Toyota Avalon XLS

Great reliable car. As of right now it is at 260,000 miles. My 6'3' husband can comfortably sit in the back. Unfortunately to complain the engine is tilted so is extremely difficult to work on. Took 8 hours to get to the ignition coils. It does look sleek and professional but that is the one downfall is the tight fit in the engine.
