I bought 2007 Avalon after doing lot of research and in my opinion it is an excellent car for the money. I bought XL but added leather trimming and upgraded rear view mirror. I did not go for XLS or limited as I dont care much for the wood trimming. Car so far has been very good, quiet, handles excellent and its roomy. Its a better buy than Lexus 350 at a $4500 less. I would recommend Toyota to ditch out the cassette player and put I pod. I am not sure if you can get 31 MPG, or at least I have not yet.
very smooth, quiet, handles good, lt of room
side moldings, I pod, and mute button on the steering wheel
