Like jagtoes, my 2010 hasn't seen the dealer since the first oil change. Been the most reliable car we've ever owned. The paint looks new with no issues

The last time I went to the dealer for anything was when we had the initial 5K mile service! We found an excellent mechanic locally that specializes in Lexus, Toyota and Honda's. He checks the car...

After doing some more research on the 2013 Avalon it appears they have messed up the comfortable seats of past models. Appears it's not nearly as quiet as my 2006 model was either! According to Car...

I had a 2006 Avalon that I sold to purchase my wife's 2010 ES. I still miss that car. It road like a dream IMO and there was less road noise than from the ES. What I really liked about it was that...

Since you are doing it the manual way it will be interesting to see how close it comes to what the computer says! Good luck

The 28.2 comes from the computer but I do occasionally check it manually whenever I'm on a road trip or say I pretty much drive a whole tank on nothing but back roads. Manually I've come up with from...

Yes they are. I really like the looks of the Hyundai Azera! Problem is that it, the Buick LaCrosse, Hyundai Genesis, etc will never hold the resale value of an ES!

Frankly, I don't care if you believe me or not!

I was off slightly. The car has averaged 28.2 since it was purchased in Nov 2009. For the first couple of years it was probably 80% highway but...

You'll be perfectly fine using nothing but 87 octane. We've used nothing but since the day of purchase and have always averaged over 28 mpg. Enjoy your new ride.

Is the $33700 considered dealer retail? If so, you've got at least $3-4k wiggle room. Possibly more.

The price is average for a private party sale so yes, I think its a pretty good deal. Mileage is good for an 08 and high mileage is what kills a vehicles resale value. Only thing I would do is have a...

We can agree to disagree as far as I'm concerned. I used my pricing based off of a 2003 model, not 2004 since the 2014's are just coming out.
