The Avalon is bigger, roomier, and more powerful than any other sedan in Toyota's fleet.

A few quirks, but Overall an Amazing car by Indiana on 04/25/2010. Trim: 2006 Toyota Avalon XLS, Owned less than 1 year.
10
Pros: Growing up in the 70's, the large American car was the standard of my childhood and I've always been fond of the spacious, smooth road trips a large sedan provided. Fast Forward to 2010 and it seems that I hit my left elbow on the door and the right elbow on my wife in 90% of the vehicles marketed today. We were looking at Honda Accords when a used Toyota Avalon made itself available for roughly the same money. I've always wanted a Cadillac, but could never justify the depreciation and expensive repairs. Driving the Avalon took me back to the glory years of American cars when large comfortable sedans ruled the road as family commuters.
Cons: Now, if you are in the market for a 2006 Avalon there are a couple of things that you need to know going in, THIS IS IMPORTANT. The VVTI oil line is a design flaw on this vehicle and WILL FAIL. You WILL lose your oil if you do not replace this hose, preferably with a metal line. Toyota cut some corners and used a rubber hose to carry the engine oil. The hose sits next to the engine block. Heat + time + deterioration of rubber hose= LEAK & SUDDEN LOSS OF ENGINE OIL. Not a deal breaker, BUT you MUST know this going in. The 2nd thing is that you must ensure the transmission is shifting smoothly before buying, most do, BUT, some don't. It's a computer glitch and the reflash is expensive.
Overall review: I love this car, it takes me back to a simpler time when car rides were peaceful and relaxing. The demographic for this car is between 60-67 year old drivers, IE, Grandpa car. I'm 42 and I value comfort, reliability and responsible investment of my money over the latest and greatest social status. The Avalon is the best full size sedan for retaining initial value. The MPG are amazing for a vehicle this roomy and powerful. The leather interior is plush and riding on long trips is akin to sitting on a nice, comfy couch. The cab is quiet and relaxing. The extrerior of this car is deceptively small, compared to the cavernous interior space. If you are buying this vehicle used, there is an outstanding chance that it was owned by someone that did not abuse it and kept the maintenance up. Outside of a few small quirks, this is the perfect car. Luxury and smart money, a winning combination.
