2005 Toyota Avalon Limited 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
I traded a 2004 Lexus ES 330 on the 2005 Avalon. The Avalon is larger, more powerful, and is demonstrating better fuel economy; without a doubt, it's considerably faster. The Avalon is much more comfortable than the Lexus in both ride quality and seating. In my opinion, you're paying less money and getting more value. Also, you continue to be spoiled by Toyota's bullet-proof quality, what's not to like?
