2007 Toyota Avalon Limited 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
Had a I-30 Infinity, not interested in competing with BMW, more interested in a smooth driving and riding machine. Which is what you get with a Avalon. Limited has all the bells and whistles that Infinity offers, plus more at a much better price. Love the room inside, the smart key, the great gas mileage, the memory outside mirrors, the rain activated windshield wipers, etc. I think the interior looks great. I love the attention to details: when you "spritz" your windshield to clean it, the wiper makes several passes, pauses for about 10 seconds and makes a final pass to clear any drips! If the rear sunshield is up, it automatically goes down when you put the car in reverse! Cool!
Highway mpg of over 30 before the car is even broken in. The smooth, smooth ride, the more than adequate power. The interior lights and exterior "puddle lights" come on when you get within 3' of the car - like a puppy welcoming you home!
Power telescoping and adjusting steering wheel that is tied into the memory seats - and the same for the interior rear view mirror. An easier to operate nav system. With all that the smart key does for you, it's easy to forget that you have to actively lock the doors when you leave.
