Looking for a big, soft-riding cruiser with loads of creature comforts, room for five and a massive trunk? Look no further than the 2012 Toyota Avalon sedan.

Great ride and feel, roomy spacious,comfortable"

"I bought my 2006 Avalon and would buy another in a minute. In the 7 years that I have had it, the only service stops at the Toyota dealer have been normal maintenance. Not one thing has gone wrong with it. The comfort and interior spaciousness are unbeatable. If yoiuir looking ofr a long term, dependable vehicle, the Avalon would be my choice."
