Great Car For Seasoned Citizens Who Like To Travel — This car was inherited, so we didn't have much choice about what it looks like or how it is equipped. It has more power than our 2009 base Impala. I think it is dependable, but replacing the timing belt was pretty expensive ($1000). Ours has everything on it one could ask for without stepping up to the XLS trim level. It is mostly used around town, commuting and long trips with 3 grown people. It performs well and gets decent gas mileage. It is starting to look dated, has over 200K on the clock, and will be replaced in the next couple of years.

Great Family Car. — The space in this car is its main selling feature. Plenty of cargo space to fit multiple suitcases in the trunk. You can comfortably sit tall people in the back seat directly behind other tall people. The main draw back is the dated look and technology of the car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

My Wife Wants A New New Car. — I enjoyed the heated seats. I've owned several vehicles in my life time, and this one in particular is nice. Has that cadillac ride, smooth, relaxing, quiet. I really enjoy the vehicle, but it belonged to my now wife, and I recently purchased her a new Lexus Sedan.

Toyota Avalon — This car is great has some really great features about it like leather trim, sunroof, and even butt warmers. And even though it perfoms perfectly and gets pretty good has mileage (23-25). Theres never over looking the fact that it does look a little bit like a grandma/grandpa car.

Great Car — I am a high mileage driver and these things are fabulous. 81,000 miles and drives like it did 2 years ago when i got it with 15,000 miles on it. Just wish i had cloth seats because leather is very comfortable but hot on the legs and back in the summer.

Owner for 2 years, 4 months

Miles Driven per Year:35,000
