I have now spent 12,000 miles in my Avalon. This a great car. I am getting 25 MPG on average and up to 30 MPG on highway. Great Power and with the manual override transmission you can really get off the line when you have to. Engine flys form 40 to 70 MPH. This car is big and roomy. I fully agree with the Edmunds Road test. They nailed it perfectly on all counts
Peppy engine with great MPG
Could go for a quieter ride but I wouldn't call it noisy. Seats don't have any contour so you kind of slide around.
