I actually just traded my 07 ES350 for a 2011 Avalon this past weekend. What a difference. I was mainly after more back seat room but didn't want to sacrifice the comfort and fuel mileage of the...

Yes, it really is. You shouldn't be letting the car go below a quarter tank. In my 07, to fill from a quarter tank takes about 15 gallons.

15 * .45 = $6.75 per tank.

Then it becomes a...

optima = budget avalon twin.

Good cars for the money, they just don't seem to age well and become a bit rattle-ey and the interior plastics deteriorate unless meticulously cared for.

It doesn't need the injector cycle, the fuel pump is a fixed volume (i.e. gallons/liters per hour). It then guesses based upon how many 'hours' the car has run for and how many miles you've gone. ...

the 5 year old is in a booster seat currently.

Looking like I need to just wait and aim for an SUV or truck after all. Who knows, I just need to hit the lottery and then I'll be all set! haha

Chyah. I had a 211 (e500 4matic) before the ES. That trunk was ridiculous.


I like the ES, but I should have never traded that E class :cry:

You already pointed it out. The Lexus shows more power and torque than the Camry. These are just peak numbers, though, so it doesn't tell the whole story. To understand it, you'd need to see dyno...

Unfortunately, though, it doesn't look like it's any bigger than my ES. Hmm, guess we'll have to see when I get home to measure my ES :uh:

What's up guys?

in general, no, infiniti G35 parts will not interchange with the ES350.

Even if the caliper brackets worked, you'd not likely be able to fit them under the 17" wheels on the ES.
