I bought a 2006XLS in March 2006.
Today, it has 206,000 miles on it without one single problem.
I have replaced the tires, battery and brake pads.
It still has the original spark plugs, water pump, starter, antifreeze, trans fluid and serpentine belt (which isn't even cracked!).
This car has been nothing short of amazing.
It is big, the back seat is the biggest of any car I have seen.
It is fast with plenty of torque all the way through the powerband, feels like a V8.
It averages 27 miles to the gallon with 80 percent highway driving.
It is super quiet and smooth.
The Camry isn't even close to an Avalon.
This is BIGGER than Lexus ES350, yet cheaper. Im going to keep on driving it.
Size, Ride, Power and Economy of the 3.5 vvti engine.
Toyota's 3.5 is one of the best V6's in any car avaliable.
