What do people think
about Toyota Avalon ?
Interior is plush, I like the screen info on my XLS, it has all the bells and whistles anyone could want. This is as close to a Lexus as it gets and for a lot less money, I only paid $15,000 plus tax for the car. Outstanding gas mileage. I averaged over 30 MPG on a flat stretch of highway going 65 the other day....
