I had the Avalon for a short period, but as with previous Avalons and Toyotas in general, they are reliable and they sustain years of heavy use.

I have owned this car since the spring of 2000 and outside of normal maintenance it has never failed to start or allow me to arrive safely to my destination. Currently, I have some 120,000 miles on this car and plan to use it until my end of life.

6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
My experience with this car has been great across all categories with the exception of a few minor cosmetic repairs. A little better MPG would be nice though.

This Camry has proven very reliable with no unscheduled repair issues in the first 80,000 miles. There were three Toyota recalls but no issues were apparent due to them.

Camry has a good reliability record.

No cons!

Cheap and weak parts. At 110,000 miles I have replaced the radiator and alternator neither of which are wear and tear parts that should be needing replacement so soon. In addition the front end of the suspension makes a clunking noise over bumps.
