Very reliable and appears to be well made. No problems or repair issues to speak of.
Modern and elegant styling with no excessive chrome or over the top styling. Car is classy looking, but at the same time remains conservative looking.
Very quiet car. I have owned many brands... Chevrolet, Ford, Mercury, Lincoln, BMW and Honda. I have never rode in a car other than a late model Lexus that was this quiet.
Very smooth riding vehicle. Comparing this to more expensive Lincoln and BMW luxury vehicles, this is by far the smoothest riding vehicle that I have owned.
Both Toyota and the Avalon model have in my opinion a fine reputation for quality, reliability and value.
