"I have owned my 2001 Avalon since new. This car is the best car value anywhere. I have 120000 miles of trouble free motoring. Just normal maintenance and I changed the oil every 3000-4000 miles. Large comfortable and roomy. While at the dealership getting new brakes last week I purchased another new 2008 Avalon. Many of my friends and family have also purchased an Avalon based on my positive recommendation and experience. I kept my old Avalon to drive as a secord car. Shoot, with 120,000 miles it just getting broken in. What's really amazing is how the resale value has stayed so high. After owning it for 7+ years and 120,000 miles it is still worth about 33% of what I paid for it. I've owned big BMW's and Mercedes but the Avalon is 90%-95% as good as these other cars that cost 3 times more....the only real difference is the Avalon is a V6 vs. V8 in the high end expensive brands. The overall quality of the Avalon is every bit as high."
"I bought my Avalon in 2000 (new) and now have 251,000 miles on it. All I've done to it is regular maintainance (oil changes every 5,000 miles). I did replace a wiper motor however, that's been the only repair.
The thing continues to run great and is still as quiet as the day I bought it. I live in Western PA so it's seen it's share of nasty weather. This is a great automobile. I'll continue to drive this car. I just want to see how many miles I can put on it.
I just purchased a 2006 Avalon for my wife (she would have no other car.)."
"I bought this vehicle used about 2 years ago and other than routine maintenance I have done nothing. It now has 58,000 miles on it and runs great and has a lot of power for a V-6. The interior is very stylish and in general the car is very enjoyable to drive."
