2009 4dr Sedan 268-horsepower 3.5L V6

Very reliable and appears to be well made. No problems or repair issues to speak of.
2008 4dr Sedan 268-horsepower 3.5L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Only one cosmetic issue in eight months of ownership.

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.
2008 4dr Sedan 268-horsepower 3.5L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
So far after 14k miles no problems. The dealership has been great for service.
2007 4dr Sedan 268-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic FWD
No problems to date
2003 4dr Sedan 210-horsepower 3.0L V6

Toyota, enough said
2000 4dr Sedan 210-horsepower 3.0L V6
4-speed automatic FWD
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.

2010 4dr Sedan 106-horsepower 1.5L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
Its a Toyota, simple as that. They are built to last.
2010 4dr Sedan 106-horsepower 1.5L I4
5-speed manual FWD
I am a stickler on maintenance and was very disappointed on the driver side drive shaft seal leaking twice! I was not given any reason why this would happened but so far since the last repair it seems all is fine. I change my own oil and was able to notice the problem way before it was serious as I notice an oozing of manual transmission oil around this drive shaft. I have not been able to find this is a common problem though.
2009 2dr Hatch 106-horsepower 1.5L I4
5-speed manual FWD
I have not had a single problem with the car in the first seven months of ownership. Put gas in, change the oil and it just goes.
2008 2dr Hatch 106-horsepower 1.5L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
Other than a few minor warranty problems the car is solid.
2008 4dr Sedan 106-horsepower 1.5L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
I have had 3 Toyotas now and all have been trouble free for over 150,000km.
2008 4dr Sedan 106-horsepower 1.5L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
It has a good reputation. I have known many Toyotas to have well over 250,000 miles on them without so much as minor maintenance and a few small repairs.
2008 2dr Hatch 106-horsepower 1.5L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
Have owned this car for almost three years. NO need to go to the shop at all (oil changes and other routine maintenance has been done at home).
2008 2dr Hatch 106-horsepower 1.5L I4
5-speed manual FWD
Know others who own Toyotas and all are very happy.
2007 2dr Hatch 106-horsepower 1.5L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
saves money
2007 2dr Hatch 106-horsepower 1.5L I4
5-speed manual FWD
This car uses the tried and true 1NZ-FE engine and 2nd generation of the C50 transmission, both of which can take a licking and keep on ticking. It enjoys the typical and legendary Toyota legacy of reliability.
