Up to date, it has been a very enjoyable ride. Classy enough for my trade, as engineering consultant, and sporty enough for my younger heart. It has been, however, sifnificantly fuel thirsty, almost as my wive's MDX! However, dealership service has been excellent and the vehicle has operated flawlessly, unlike my previous Avalon! Overall, I'm happy with my purchase, except for braking performance.
Interior fit & finish. Excellent vehicle dynamics.
Does not feel with enough "torque" for the size. My greatest concern was experiencing a DRAMATIC BRAKE FADE while performing a panic stop from high speed. At least, with the performance oriented marketing infused image, I would expect a single instance safe stop, period!
