Love it but not reliable so far
By MichaelG on
2005 Toyota Avalon XLS 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
We have 20K miles on our 2005. We love the car but it has been in the shop several times. It does have a transmission hesitation but is only an issue in rush hour. Currently, it is in the shop for another month awaiting a new steering assembly.
Engine is refined and quick. Interior is quite and comfortable. Great mileage on the highway. JBL stereo is excellent. Great ride.
Transmission hesitation needs to be resolved after 2 years! Reliability is less than other vehicles I have owned.
