2004 Toyota Avalon XLS 3.0 from North America
Non looker, non performance, reliable as all get up, and smoother than glass
When I bought the car, the steering was just a little off from aligned.
Every day I kick myself for selling this car. Sure it's not that pretty, and it's nowhere near the fastest car. But you can't get a better ride, comfort, space.
Only reason I sold it is because I thought I needed a faster car.
This is car is just as good as any Lexus ES300; in fact I like it more.
I love the interior layout. The rear room is outstanding. It's definitely got an old person feel to it, but hey I love to be comfortable.
This is the perfect highway sedan.
It had automatic windshield wipers; never knew how much I'd miss that once it was gone.
I put some Michelin tires on this car, absolutely no road noise at all driving this thing. Smooth as glass.
There is only one car I can think of that I want before this car on the highway, and that would be the Lexus LS400, but that just isn't a fair comparison, that thing costs twice as much.
I've had about every car maker: Ford, Toyota, Nissan, and Honda.
Toyota during mid 90s and on, just know how to deliver a great product; you can't go wrong.
18 city, 27 highway MPG.
The engines go forever. If you can find a 2003-2004 XLS, jump on it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
