I bought my 1999 Toyota Avalon Platinum XLS in 2006.
It had 99000 miles on it and this did not cause me alarm since I have had a Toyota Camry before.
My Toyota Avalon now has 187,000 miles on it and is still running strong!
I have had to put routine maintenence items, such as brakes, battery, tires, but other than that it is running like the day I bought it.
I am looking at trading it off for something newer, not because I need to, just maybe wanting something newer.
Trouble I am having is when I test drive other vehicles I am comparing it to my Avalon, so far all the "competitors" have lost. Gas mileage is still 24/28 hwy.
Excellent choice and great car!
Smooth ride, leather seats, sunroof, dependability, good gas mileage for V6, low maintenence costs.
