2008 Toyota Avalon Limited 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
Bought the demo with 8k miles on it for mama. She is completely satisfied and so am I. 33 mpg on the highway if you can believe that. That overall has been the most pleasant surprise. Considered the Lexus but why pay 10-15k more? This has all the features without the increase in price. The 08 is sleeker than the 11 and looks sharper.
MPG, ride and acceleration. Blizzard pearl gives it that black coat and tie look. The AC in the seats make your bottom feel like Noxzema has been applied.
Tires are about ready to be replaced at 30k miles. Make sure you get a high speed alignment at 30k miles to keep that ride smooth. Idles within OEM parameters but is not super super smooth.
