2006 Toyota Avalon Limited 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
It is hard to identify my favorite feature on this car. Love the smart key/keyless entry/remote start, the heated seats, the spacious back seating that amazes passengers. The in-town gas mileage is a little low (about 18) compared to 30 freeway. Only problem I have had is a strip that comes loose from the roof top on the passenger side of the car when I go through a car wash. The only service work done has been oil changes. The car runs great. My previous car was a much-enjoyed 1999 Dodge Intrepid. In choosing this car, it was a decision between a similar cost/similar featured Mercedes. No regrets on choosing the Avalon over the Mercedes.
Heated seats, smart key, dual temperature controls, overall comfort.
Wish it looked a little sportier. Better fuel mileage in-town and better GPS system. The GPS is very awkward and confusing to use. I know there are better ones out there.
