Great running car. Roomy and very good visibility all around. This Toyota has been the family "work horse" for those everyday short trips to school and shopping. Comfortable, and quiet ride. Good gas mileage all around. I run 87 octane with no problems. Reasonable maintenance cost. Original owner... this is a keeper!
Nice looking car, good lines. Very good trunk space. Looks like a Lexus without paying the higher purchase price.
Better door protection. Door guard design is too low, so getting dings. Slight air leak around the front door passenger window when driving at freeway speeds. No rain coming in though. Heated outside mirrors would be nice.
Bought it from a dealer with 1800 miles on it. In the shop for a rack and pinnion (?) and an oil leak and two windows stopped working. Both times $1000.+. Routine maintenance other than that. Not bad for over 200,000 miles in nine years. Always starts right up. Currently getting 30mpg hwy, 27mpg normal driving. Cup holders work fine for me. I only use the back seat for stuff. Wood grain areas sun damaged and peeled off. I am 5'3" with short legs so the seat length is too long for me and hits in the calf of the legs.I use a back cushion to keep me forward in the seat. Mechanic says the oxygen sensor needs replaced and I would get better mpg. How much better can it get? I will get 300,000 miles out of it.
sun roof, dependable, smooth ride, fuel economy, comfort
While this car would not be considered a "workhorse" like a truck or whatever, it is a fantastic car for a salesman who has to cover a huge territory in all weather and have a car that looks good. Even though the car now looks somewhat outdated, it has kept its snazzy appearance quite well -- especially as compared to some of the Pontiacs and Fords I've seen. The car has 125,000 miles on it and EVERYTHING still works as well as it did when it was new: windows, doors, sunroof, cupholder and yes, the TAPE PLAYER and CD. I'm truly amazed at how many other cars I've seen (like my friend's Malibu) that never made it past the first 5 years. My Avalon still feels like a new BMW -- no joke!
Peppy engine! Sounds great and is still very powerful. I think it's finally come into its break in period. The dash is awesome. Even after I got rear-ended the trunk, and all the doors, etc. close nicely and feel tight and seal against the elements.
Possibly the turning radius, but that's it. Nothing else to complain about.
I have owned this car for a few months and I love it already. It rides beautifully and is very classy. Also this is a very strong and solid car, I was hit by a large pickup truck and there was minimal damage. I have a lot of faith in this car. I am very glad I bought it.
I love the size of this car, it is big and safe. I also love the engine, smooth and powerful.
I can't think of anything! I love my car just the way it is!
