2001 Toyota Avalon XL 4dr Sedan w/Bucket Seats (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
The car has performed very well. Gas mileage is good, especially for this car's size. It is extremely smooth and quiet, running as well as it did when it was new. Brakes were changed at 72K miles. Other than that, have only done fluid changes, batteries, tires, filters and timing belt/water pump -- all recommended maintenance. It is extremely comfortable on long trips. Back seat has tremendous leg and head room.
Smooth, easy to drive, quiet, huge back seat, very comfortable and supportive front seats.
Side mirrors should not be fixed, but should be able to bend forward/backward so you don't risk breaking them if you hit them. Better tires on the new car.
