I bought my 1998 Toyota Avalon XLS in December of 2005. I loved it from the first day I drove it. It's ride is very comfortable and the V6 gives it plenty of power. All in all, this car is very reliable and a great car to travel in.
Extremely comfortable to drive in and has plenty of torque on the low end.
The buttons on the stereo begin to pop out, and that kind of stinks.
