Anyone wanting a car that will carry five, give you sports car performance and great economy and great reliability, this is one to put on your list. I had a 1995 Avalon, my first Avalon, and I gave that one to my brother who still drives it today. I had one small problem with the car and other than that, it has been great. Beautiful to look at, comfortable and drives like a dream. Not flashy, but will get admiring looks all the same. Good gas milage (average 21-23mpg), can get higher IF you can keep your foot out of the gas pedal!
Beautiful Car !!

I could not ask for anything more. I am very much in love with my Avalon. For 20 years I drove Honda Accords also very good cars. But I am very happy with my Avalon.

I bought a new 2006 Avalon limited and has the S.E package. Love the car, from the smooth ride to the comfort of the cooled seats in the summer. I have never seen a car get the looks that this car has gotten. With the BBS wheels and the S.E. edition look, it draws a lot of attention, I can be setting in a resturant and watch people outside walking around it and looking inside. Have had people to tell me they would have bought like mine instead of their Lexus if they had seen that special edition before they had made thier purchase. I looked at the Lexus, BMW's, Benz's, and Infinity's. But I think I got the very best car for the money. My neighbor has a BMW and a couple of times when her's wouldn't start she has borrowed my Avalon, she says it drives and handles better than her car. List was a little over 41M but got it for 36M. I had added the remote start on it in the price. I someone is looking to buy a great car, I would rec. the AVALON, LIMITED and if all possible get the special edition.
Review of 2006 Toyota Avalon
very nice car.test drove a bmw 5s and keep going back to the avalon.im driving the avalon and i love it!
This being my first Toyota [and the top model at that] after several full size GM cars, perhaps I bought in to the Toyota hype and expected too much, but I've been disappointed. I've had AND STILL HAVE significant rattles [most notably from behind the rear passenger area] since the initial purchase, the color has worn off the vinyl where my knee abuts the driver's door, and the dealer has NOT been very cooperative at solving either problem. There are many excellent features, such as a huge interior, ample trunk space, adequate power [although poor acceleration; I average 21.5 mpg], a quiet ride [except for the rattles], and [to me] the most beautiful dash made, but the factory tires will need to be replaced before 20,000 miles and the stereo system is inferior to what I anticipated finding in Toyota's "luxury" model. Upon reaching the 16,000 mile mark, the passenger door speaker began to "frazzle" at the "36" volume level [a little above middle]; I have not had time to address this with the dealer and, based on their lack of attention thus far, expect another battle to have this corrected.
I feel [after only 16,500 miles] that my previous two GM full size cars were a better value, at a lower cost and with MUCH better dealer service.
2006 Avalon Limited
This is my second Avalon and I love the car. It is roomy, quiet, very dependable, most of all uses regular gas. I get as much as 30mpg and most of the time 27+. I will buy another one when needed.
Best car we have EVER owned!!!!!!
What A Great Sedan!
Came across the purchase quite by accident. Decided to see what an Avalon looked like and tiptoe through the dealership lot after it closed. Imagine our surprise to discover we hit the Midnight Madness Sale (last year) and we truly did not know it was going on. I wasn't looking to buy but the deal was just too good and it was adios to my Camry. I am not a 'car person' but this Avalon is so roomy and comfortable. It glides on the streets and road. Absolutely the best vehicle I've ever owned.
Review of 2006 Toyota Avalon
Overall I like the car but a couple of things bother me. One, in cold weather the horn doesn't work and the dealer won't do anything about it and two, at low speeds when the transmission shifts from first to second it takes a while to shift, the RPM's go way up and then it goes into second with a "clunk." The dealer tells me this is normal.
