So i purchased mine Jan 2009 w/50,685. Today i have 138,728. NO issues or problems at all. I could nick - pick but that would be stupid. Im 76yrs. old and hope that i dont need to look for any more cars. Someone will get a good beater when I'm gone 😀


Love my Avalon

I got my 2004 Avalon xls almost 2 years ago.i am in love with this car. It was wrecked before i bought it and has been wrecked once since.this is still the best car. Rides smooth,great performance, reliable


Keep this gem.

I am the third owner of my 2004 Avalon and have had it since 2012. It has 145,000 miles on it and still runs great. Yes, I have had to put about 3.4k dollars in it for suspension issues but when I tested a 2014 Avalon Hybrid I discovered things about my old car that the new ones don't have. Sight lines on my car are much better than the new ones and if you like audio books on CDs you won't find a six CD changer on the new ones. The engine is still powerful, I haven't noticed any decline in gas mileage and the comfort in the seats and space are superb and controls on this car don't require a pilot's license. My mechanic says Michigan rust is doing my Avalon in and it's time to look for another. I am willing to risk the odds for at least two more years. What's better: a luxury car you already own or one that will run $350 a month in car payments.
