Replaced an older Camry with this car for it's reliability and rear seat legroom.
I've had this car for 5 years/75K miles and it's 19 years old now.
216K miles on the clock.
I've owned other cars that if you looked at them the wrong way they would break down.
Not this one!
I do all the basic maintenance myself.
Running 100% gas I've done as good as 26mpg combined, and 29mpg hwy.
Even on ethanol gas, I get 22mpg combined.

I love this car. Got it in 2008 with about 80 K miles and it still runs strong even at 170 K miles. The only change I made was a busted flex pipe in 2012. Interior is sketchy but large enough to fit 5 average sized adults. Trunk space is superb. Performance is good for a older car like this, acceleration is great with PWR ETC engaged and overdrive off.
Maneuverability is surprisingly active even at highway speeds. And this car can keep up with those low end luxury sedans which try to embarass you like Mercedes C class 250, BMW 5.
Marginally larger than the Camry, the Avalon is a true six-passenger sedan set to conquer Buick LeSabre and Ford Crown Victoria. Dual airbags, power windows, power mirrors and power locks are standard. ABS is optional. Mechanicals are mostly Camry-based.
