2009 Toyota Avalon Limited 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
This car should be getting more attention by industry pundits. My 09 Avalon is a lot more car than I ever expected. The standard options are generous for a car costing under 34K. The ride and handling is responsive and not at all "Buick like". The Avalon V6 with the 6 speed transmission is quick and the tap shift adds a bit of fun. Why buy a small hybrid when you can drive a large luxury sedan with +30 MPG!
Lazer Speed Control, quiet cabin, heated/ cooled passenger and drivers seats, FWD, reclining rear seats, auto rear window shade, large trunk with full size spare tire!
Installed XM receiver instead of XM ready, fix blind spots, improve navigation with easier to use controls. Otherwise, everything else is well done.
