So far, so good

Vehicle2013 Toyota Avalon Hybrid XLE Touring 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
ReviewPurchased this car about three weeks ago and have 1000ish miles on it.
Have been averaging 39 mpg in mixed driving.
The car is very nice.
Rides well but a little stiff.
It definitely doesn't have the soft, "grandpa" ride of the older Avalons.
It is very comfortable and all the electronics seem easy to navigate.
Also considered the Fusion and MKZ hybrids as well as the diesel Passat.
Chose the Avalon for its combo of mileage, value, power and fit and finish.
Have received a lot of compliments on the look of the car.
Was also able to negotiate a deal well below TMV and invoice.
Very happy with this purchase so far.
Update: Now at 36,000 miles. No problems (knock wood) with the car so far. Rides very well even better now that I have put some nice tires (Sumitomo) on the car. In hindsight the original tires were not very good as they squealed going around most corners and had a lot more road noise. The one disappointment I would say is that the mileage is not what I would have hoped. I get about 32 - 34 mpg combined highway and around town. I actually get better mileage on the highway (high 30's) and I thought hybrids were supposed to perform better around town. I believe the expected MPG posted on the car was high 30's combined. But overall, very happy with the purchase and hope to keep it for a long time.
