    2005 Toyota Avalon

    Pros: Combo of power and mileage.

    Cons: Would like to see Toyota offer a wider tire and wheel package on this car. That would add to the looks and performance.

    I love this car. Owned it since new and have put 145K miles on her with no major issues. Plenty of power, averages 28+ MPG city/hwy. Roomy and comfortable for all.

    2005 Toyota Avalon - Touring

    Pros: Smart Key System and Interior

    Cons: Remote Start it is a littl complicated..

    Advice: Drive this car and you will buy it. It is the best 30

    The car drives like a Dream. I have owned several Lexus before and it is the same kind of ride.. The options are very nice, this is clearly a discounted Infiniti or Lexus.. I have the Limited and it has everything except park tronic. The excelleration is Great, Good sound system (I prefer Bose), creature features are to numreous to mention. It is clearly the best car at 30 - 40 - 50k.. And the space is exceptional. Test Drive this car and you will Buy it.

    2005 Toyota Avalon - XLS

    Pros: Looks, ride, reclining back seats, quality

    Cons: No visible or easy cig lighter outlet for my radar detector, there are several, but inside doors!

    Advice: Compare this to anything else under $35K, ride, features, value, trade in, whatever

    I test drove one yesterday, and bought it within 5 min of returning to the dealer. My 06AVXL is awesome, I traded my 00CamrySE and got 10K off sticker of 27,400, am I happy or what? This baby is so cool looking, so far above anything in its class, or even above it for value. With city/highway driving so far I am getting 24.1 mpg per the cars computer. This is one of those hidden gems that you don't see too many of on the highway, but what a value. And reclining back seats no less! Airbags all around us, 9 speaker stereo, traction control, 4 wheel ABS!! The list goes on...I am thrilled so far...

    2005 Toyota Avalon - XLS

    Pros: Powertrain.

    Cons: really nothing, but should start offering manual trans.

    Advice: Test drive the car, you will be impressed.

    Very impressive test drive, was looking at the Acura TL and the Infiniti G35, but for my needs, this car was perfect. So perfect, that i had to do another test drive to confirm my first findings.

    2005 Toyota Avalon - Limited

    Pros: the ride

    Cons: the door on the audio system doesn't seem to give enough room to insert a CD

    Advice: BUY IT you won't be sorry. Try to get a good deal. It's hard but they're out there.

    I love my TOYOTA AVALON LIMITED. I purchased my Toyota in May '05. Everytime I drive it I can't believe how happy I am that I made the decision to purchase the Limited with all the bells and whistles. I own a 1984 Mercedes 380E. I don't remember being this excited about that car when I bought it new in 1984. I owned a 1975 '98 Olds before the Benz, so I wasn't use to the stiff ride, I think that's why I like the Toyota. The Japanese seem to understand what type of ride most Americans like.

    2005 Toyota Avalon - XLS

    Pros: interior room

    Cons: moonroof control (tilt) and confusing cruise control settings

    Advice: after many runs at pricing internet was best way to get best pricing

    Really enjoy the smooth power of engine, considered Chrysler 300 but after enduring bad visability on my 300M the new Chrysler was no improvement.Gas milage is not as good as I thought it would be ,being retired we no longer pile up the mileage so it no big deal.
