Avalon isn't the Toyota version of the GS, it's FWD etc. etc. Pretty much completely different.

Your friend is just being a wad.....

GS and Avalon are completely different, the Avalon is based on a stretched Camry platform and built in America for America only.

The two could not be more different.

Yeah. Honda is a lot more guilty of sticking an Acura logo on a Honda model and selling it for more than Toyota is of this kind of practice. Personally, I would buy an Acura mower if they offered it with leather grips and extra chrome.

There is no help for him, nothing I can say or prescribe, can help him.

I don't think you should renew his friend license.

Show him pics of this and ask where is the V-8 or V-10 Acura

I believe the ES is based on the Avalon chassis, the GS is definitely a standalone chassis and not based on anything Toyota.
