Not the Toyota I Expected
Our Avalon was purchased w/ about 90,000 miles...we took it for a short test drive it was great! HOWEVA', when driving on longer trips, both passenger and driver seats become uncomfortable, to the point of numb legs. After about a year of ownership, during an oil change, the technician informed me there was 'a lot of oil on the engine'. We took it to the dealer, and a crankshaft gasket had failed (they said it is a freak thing). Most expensive repair ever. Otherwise, it has been fairly reliable
...and a few years later
Still own my 2005 Avalon 7+ years. Almost 41,000 miles. The car has not needed a lot of attention. Now that it does; it calls for the seal to be replaced on the front of the engine block. Oil leak! Of course the engine will have to be removed. 1700.00 repair! Good gas mileage. Seats are fair at best on comfort when heat/cool optioned. Laser cruise is ok for the first 25,000 miles then it is............. particular?? Ok, car but at best a cheap Lexus knockoff!
2005 Avalon Limited
I've had this car 26 months now and have had no mechanical problems. Replaced the tires and brakes and regular maintenance. Very fun to drive for such a large car, I'm still in my 30's and want something that carries my family comfortably and still has some power under the hood, and my Avalon has it all. Paint seems to be thin though, and has small rust spots in places, even though I wax 2x a year. Only big problem is that when I went to upgrade into a newer model, I lost all of my value due to Toyotas recent problems, and am now stuck upside down. The only good thing to that is at least my car is last me a good long time. I'll be bored of it long before it wears out, I believe.
More About This Model

Dear Boring, please release the Toyota Avalon from your icy death grip.

Hey, it worked. Maybe I should start writing to Santa, too — Denon home audio system and a new backyard patio, please.

Thanks to a full redesign, for the first time, you can't really call the 2005 Toyota Avalon boring. It may not be as interesting as a Chrysler 300 or as exciting as a BMW 5 Series, but this time around, Toyota's engineers and designers have given the 2005 Avalon a little more style, extra horsepower and varying trims that add distinct flavors to the formerly "vanilla only" sedan.

Because it was engineered from its top to its tires by engineers in the U.S., Toyota is calling the 2005 Toyota Avalon its "most American" car yet. And as you would expect "more American" means it's bigger, roomier and more powerful.

The Toyota Avalon remains front-wheel drive, but it's powered by an all-new all-aluminum 3.5-liter V6 with variable valve timing. With an output of 280 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque, it makes the Avalon as powerful as an Infiniti G35 sport sedan. This is not a slow car. Under all types of driving conditions we found reserves of smooth power, and the engine works perfectly with its new five-speed automatic transmission.

Toyota has nixed the irritating "gear hunting" that plagued the transmissions in previous Avalons. The new unit shifts smoothly and no longer hunts up and down incessantly on long grades, desperately looking for just the right amount of power. It's an improvement that makes the Avalon more deserving of its flagship status.

Four trim levels are available: XL, Touring, XLS and Limited. Although it's the base version, the XL still offers such amenities as a cabin air filter, a nine-speaker stereo, remote keyless entry, steering wheel-mounted audio, climate and cruise controls, a tilt/telescoping wheel, power front seats and 16-inch wheels.

The Touring model is noticeably sportier with a firmer suspension, unique 17-inch wheels, leather seats and some aluminum trim to get the point across. It handles well but falls short of being a true sport sedan.

The XLS and Limited are more upscale, the Limited even includes such items as rain-sensing wipers, memory seats, wood trim, power rear sunshade, a smart key system that works similar to the push-button start-and-go feature on the Toyota Prius and a very impressive 12-speaker, 360-watt JBL stereo with a six-disc changer. It's one of the best systems we've ever heard and it's worth ordering on the Avalon XLS.

Inside, Toyota's designers jazzed things up a bit. The Avalon Touring model is intentionally starker-looking with black leather seats and a sport steering wheel, while the Limited and XLS look modern and luxurious. The instrument cluster is highlighted by glowing "optitron" gauges surrounded by chrome rings, and movable panels that conceal the radio and navigation controls give the dash a sleek look. The feel is much more upscale than your average Toyota.

The front seats are wide and accommodating. The perforated leather on the XLS and Limited is a little softer than the hides in the Touring, but the Touring's leather holds the driver in his seat better during hard corning. The rear seats are also more comfortable than before, and there's plenty of legroom, a six-footer can sit in the back without the front seat coming close to his knees.

Yet, the rear seat is not the best seat in the house. This Toyota Avalon is rewarding to drive. Not surprisingly, it really shines on the open highway. The cabin remains quiet, the engine has plenty of passing power and the suspension, even with the firmer underpinnings of the Touring package, never feels harsh.

In the past, the Avalon was so similar to the Toyota Camry the price difference was hard to justify. That's no longer the case with the 2005 Toyota Avalon. It does everything well, and finally delivers on the promise of a flagship Toyota.
