2005 Toyota Avalon XLS 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


So far this has been a great car. It is very spacious inside, has great power, and rides very smoothly. After a recent long distance trip, we all felt very fresh after a long day traveling. City MPG seems like it could be a bit better but is probably a result of my heavy foot. Highway mileage while in cruise control is good. With 5 passengers (4 large adults and a small child) plus a trunk stuffed completely full, we were averaging nearly 30 MPG while cruising steadily.

Best Features

Very roomy, good power, and smooth ride.

Worst Features

Get rid of the stupid cassette deck. It is a huge waste of space that could be used for storage. Cruise control is annoying. Pressing resume always kicks it down a gear or two even if only a few miles an hour more is needed. Also seems to hunt gears while in cruise when on hills.
