Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"Haven't had a bit of trouble with this car. Every scheduled service done, wheels aligned every 5,000 miles, and rotated and balanced every 5,000 miles. New rack and pinion at 80,000 miles. Last summer trip to Lake Powell got 39 mpg. Love this car, but need newer car with more safety features for old folks."

"This is my second Avalon Limited owed. Both have been super with a very low cost of ownership; minimal to no vehicle recalls and easy on the pocketbook. Love the features and the ride. I will be a repeat buyer."

Pros: "Comfortable highway cruiser & extremely reliable"

Cons: "Handling not very sporty"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"This car has provided me with safe, comfortable, and reliable transportation for the ten plus years of ownership. Other than oil changes and a couple of brake jobs the car has required very infrequent maintenance. The power steering pump ($400+) and the steering rack ($900 rebuilt) needed to be replaced after about 130,000 miles were the only real repairs during my span of owning this. The car is a comfortable highway cruiser and it handles very predictably, but it's definitely not sporty. My real world gas mileage has ranged from 21 to 29 mpg. The premium JBL sound system has the clearest sound and frequency distribution I've experience of any car I've ever been in."

"I am in my 70's and have had several new cars. I have had a Avalon 2005 and put 127,000 on it before selling it myself in one day and currently have a 2011 with 41,000 miles. Never a problem with either and I will be getting a 2015 or 2016 soon. The Avalon is the best overall car I have ever had. economical, very dependable & comfortable, very little depreciation. For us it is a prefect car."
