ReviewWe have 146,000 miles on our Avalon and we have enjoyed every mile. The car is very solid safe, my wife was T-boned at 20 mph in the center of the doors and there was NO frame damage. We especially enjoyed the high quality materials of the interior - a Lexus for less $. The back seat is limo spacious, but at the sacrifice of some trunk space. Overall, a great car if you value luxury over sport. Just keep the oil changed every 3,000 miles (very important!) and expect years of reliable transportation.
Best FeaturesComfort (especially the rear seat), saftey, power, quality / fit finish, and ease of operation.
Worst FeaturesSteering is numb and too light, on pre '00 trunk release in glove box and watch for worn front strut mounts - makes a loud clatter noise. Feels like you've left on the parking brake if you don't run it on 93 octane. Check for oil sludge buildup in valve train.
