My Avalon is one of the smoothest rides on the road without paying luxury prices.

I have bought Toyota's all of my life. I love their durability, the driving feel, and the savings on gas. The Avalon has a body similar to the Lexus 400 so I love the room due to my height (6'6). I am confident I can get 250, 000 miles out of this vehicle even though I live in Chicago.

Very nice vehicle. Drive really smooth. Interstate or highway. Also very quiet in construction areas. It has a sunroof, and hitting and cool seats. The trunk has a lot of space. The leg room in the back of the car is large. Cigarette lighter plugs are in very inconvenient spots.
