not enough horse power

Avalon Review — its a great car to take you from A to B but not the fastest thing on the road, it puts some decent horses but not enough to lay down rubber or anythin like that but its a normal drive during the week.

Yota Avalon — This car is pretty quick. It's a stock V6, but could handle a little better. Has a lot of body roll. The brakes need to be done soon, but other than that its great. My husbands dad took real good care of it. Always garaged it and washed it after every outting. Thinking about getting some rims for it. Having a hard time finding any that look good on it for a decent price. It's got dark tinted windows. You can hardly see in it. Nice and straight body, hardly a scratch or ding. Gas milages is pretty good. About 25 or so mpg if I don't romp on it all the time. This car is fun as hell to drive. I take it easy mostly because of my little one, but when shes not in there with me, I pick on ricers and chevys. :)

Pros

Very comfortable, quiet, safe, reliable, powerful and spacious family car.

Cons

Over time and compared with today's family sedans, the Avalon's conservative styling from 1999 does have a dated look.  Yet, it certainly does not look like a car from the 1980's or early 1990's.

Just A Great Family Car — The Avalon has been a great car to own, with few repairs necessary if maintained properly. The car always felt safe, handled well and we enjoyed the quiet and smooth ride. With good tires, it performed well in winter conditions also.

Great Car For A Small Family — This was a great car, and it is still running great for my brother in law. The performance was what you would expect it to be from a family car. It was a family car, so I don't think that is a fun car to drive.
