A 2005 Avalon that I'm still driving at 205K miles. Never did any major work to either car. Biggest back seat I've ever been in. Newer models have gotten a little smaller."

It's a full size car with plenty of room for 5 adults and plenty of trunk space even though I have a battery pack in the trunk since my car is a Hybrid. It's now getting 37mpg!!! It's a dream to drive, quiet, and responsive. For such a large car it handles extremely well, easily getting in and out of tight spaces. Fully loaded with technology I savef about $6,000 compared to the Lexus ES 300h and I still have all identical technology.
Our 2008 Avalon is an excellent cae and we have been satisfied in every respect except one very notable exception: the navigation system. The user interface of the Avalon is annoying and very hard to use. It takes a good amount of studying to learn how to use it at all. The first indication of this is when you notice that it uses a "joystick" in leiu of a touch screen. The feature comes at an outrageous price and has a design that seems far less advanced than any $200 navigation system one can buy at Radio Shack. My 2008 map CD is out of date and the new updated CD costs $265. The fact that it even uses a CD is disapointing. Most of the modern GPS devices use a small plug-in memory chip that can be updated on-line for about $45. The Toyota system also chooses to play nanny by prohibiting anyone from changing the destination unless the car is at a complete stop.
