Great car!

This is a great automobile! Very quiet. I frequently when headed along quiet streets feel like i am gliding along - no noise, smooth ride. I have driven mine a bit over 100,000 miles and have not had any issues with the battery. I am still using the original brake linings. Great car. I figure that it will be my last. I believe that it will last for 300,000 miles and that at that point, I will go to a phone app and request a driverless car that will come to my door, pick me up, take me to my destination, then go to the next request in line.


2015 Avalon limited Hybrid bought new

I bought this to save my license. I was on my second Infinity and was pushing my luck, car was faster than my 1st Patrol car (1973 Dodge with a 440 six pac), I wondered if I would have buyers remorse in giving up so much power. Don’t miss it at all, and love getting 38 to 42 mph! On regular. Only have 56 K on it now so I’m keeping it for quite while. Ps No issues with it either


Greatest car I have owned.

This car is very comfortable and exceeds all expectations. I would not hesitate to buy another one. It’s perfect. We have toured New England in it.
