I Will Buy Another If I Have Enough Money — As above, nice car for the 4 of us, me, kids 6, 4, 2. Husband in Army and we move a lot at least every 2 years. I don't mind being a so-called Army wife it's a good life. But sorry this is supposed to be about my car. I once pulled a trailer from Texas to N. Carolina 1200 miles and car had no trouble. Never has until now. My Dad bought me the car in 2009 with 47770 miles now has 88700. Except for moving I don't go far

Pros: Nice car I love it, big enough for 3 kids car seats in back seat, never given me any problems (until now)

Cons: middle back seat no child seat anchors

Family Car — This car has been good to me and my family. Its been a good all around transports. I make many trips to Las Vegas to visit family and always take this car. Has great passing power and pretty good handling at over 100mph.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great Family car. Decent gas mileage.

Cons: Brakes. I've worked on them so many times i can't even tell you. Had the replace the calipers several times.

Get This Car! — I absoultely love this car! It came with Michelin tires and they seem to grip right through the snow (even in MN!). Super comfortable, luxurious without overdoing it, very spacious. I do wish that they made it easier to upgrade to an after market radio but that's not too big of a concern.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Very spacious, nicely designed (interior and exterior), JBL audio is great for stock, I really like the surround option, headlights light the road well, seats are comfortable, rear seats recline and have plenty of leg room, moonroof is quite large, handles well for such a big sedan.

Cons: Haven't come across anything so far!

Excellent Car, Excellent Value — This is the first sedan purchase I made - I looked at the Audi A6, Mazda 6, Volvo S60 and Hyundai Sonata. I stopped at a Toyota lot just to see what they had, and at the time I never heard of the Avalon. After driving it this was my clear choice. Ride, style, features, cost, room - for me all clear winners. And knowing it was a Toyota I expected it to be very reliable, which for the past 8 years it has been!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: gas mileage, cost, reliability, space

Cons: none really - I have thoroughly enjoyed this car

Great Family Vehicle Wth A Luxury Feel. — We have driven Toyota Camry's or Avalons for almost 30 years. The Avalon brings the reliability of the Camry to a larger and more luxurious platform. The rear seat legroom is unmatched in it's class. I don't think you can get a better vehicle for the price.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Very smooth and quiet ride.  Luxury at an afordable price.

Cons: None to speak of.

Lexus In Toyota Clothes — I"ve owned several cars in my day and this is one of those cars I shouldn't have sold. I bought this car used with 60K miles on it and didn't think twice. When I bought all service records where in the car and it was pretty much showroom. I had always thought these cars where beautiful and it was one of my dream cars. This car was wicked fast for being so big, got 33 mpg on the highway if you knew how to drive it and was great in any kind of weather. The ride was quiet and plush like you would expect out of lexus, and had little road noise. The was a great car for the money, and I can promise that for the price of these cars and the amount of features you get I WILL buy another one.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: I love the seats, the radio, the ride, the gas mileage, the color (blizzard pearl), the looks I got driving it, Lexus quality without the price

Cons: Power mirror rattled, so quiet it ate brakes

Buy One! — Outstanding Automobile!! Never had a problem of any major nature. Using cruise I consistently got over 30mpg on the road on 87 octane gas and synthetic oil. Easy to drive, everything where you reach it, smooth quiet and comfortable.Rear passenger seat is like sitting in your favorite leather chair. Trunk space enormous.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great highway car. Laser cruise on clear days is great.

Cons: Laser cruise does not function in rain or snow. Headlamps are anemic.

If You Don't Mind The "old Man's Car" Image You Will Love It. — It was going to be Lexus or Avalon. And after comparing year to year features the Avalon won. What stood out: the 05 & 10 Avalon body styles are the same. Not so with the Lexus. 05 to 05 the Avalon has more horse power, better MPG, dual, compared to single exhaust, more room inside, and larger dimensions on the outside. I purchased the car with 40,000 mi. on the odometer. And after 5,000 mi. around town, with limited freeway driving, I have averaged 22mpg.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Comfortable with all the power you could reasonably want.

Cons: Even moderate acceleration produces noticable front wheel torque drive
