We are getting ready to buy our third Avalon
The review title is a big clue to how much we like the car. It wasn't the coolest looking car for a young(ish) couple/family, but it had everything we needed for a family car. Space, enough luxury at the time, comfort, power and decent handling. Our first Avalon was an older 1990's model. We liked that one enough that we replaced it with a new factory ordered 2008. 190,000 miles later after arriving with 6 miles on the odometer, minor typical maintenance fixes, and the only thing really wearing out is the foam in the seats. It's been a super reliable car as I expect when buying a Toyota. The only reason we are replacing it is because it is being handed down to our kid as a reliable car with no maintenance needs. This is really just an excuse to get a newer model with more modern features that were not available in 2008, but convenient and more standard in todays cars.
