I'm 6' 2" and 250 pounds and I also find the seats very, very comfortable in our 06 Limited.

I'm 5'10" 240 lbs. Wife is 5'&" 118 lbs. We both are comfortable in these seats. I put in a lot of 350-375 mile days, so any real problems should be apparent by now.

I use the cruise as much as possible. speed is usually 5-10 MPH - 65-75 - over the posted limit. at 75 I'm getting around 31; & if I can hold a steady 65 I'm getting as much as 34. Incidentally, no jackrabbit starts & fairly flat terrain.

I wonder at what part of the country can you drive as high as 85 mph and use cruise control always.

Didn't say 85. My post says 65-75
#400 of 424 Purchasing a '06 Avalon XLS
Oct 28, 2006 (3:43 am)
I am looking to purchase a '06 Avalon today fully loaded for $32M. Can anybody give me any feedback on the car. Mileage sounds good, Maintenance, Wear and Tear, etc. Going from a Honda Accord XLE to this car.

You want to go the Toyota Avalon board and check out the discussions there. We have all kinds of conversations going on.
Good luck with your purchase - enjoy the Forums!

You will be MUCH more comfortable and get better mileage with the Avalon. 23000 miles in 4 months and not a sign of a problem.
Mileage has ranged from a low of 28.5 to 34.5. I live in a flat area & spend a lot of time on I 95 at 75 MPH & et 32 or a little better in this kind of driving.
As for maintenance problems, I'v had Honda's, Mitsubishi's, Toyota's & Mazda's & never had a problem with any of them; & I put a minimum of 150,000 Miles on a car before getting rid of it.
The Avalon is by far the most comfortable & quietest so far.
#403 of 424 Volvo S60 mileage
Dec 07, 2006 (7:31 am)
5 cyl. low-pressure turbo
Combined mountain road and city driving, 27 mpg
Highways/freeways, 33 mpg
Per the saleman's recommendation we run mid-grade with no adverse affects since we live and drive between 5,000 and 10,000 ft. asl.
This car seems to be hitting it's stride now that it's over 50,000 miles -- an awesome road trip car at a sweet spot for performance, style, safety and economy for a two-person family. We also own a Grand Cherokee but the Volvo is the car of choice when we go skiing thanks to the split-folding rear seat, power and low center of gravity.
#404 of 424 Burning 86 vs 91 octane in Avalon
Dec 15, 2006 (7:30 am)
Just purchased an Avalon XLS (2007)...could anyone with experience please tell how it will "optimally" better perform using 91 octane? Better acceleration? Better fuel economy? and so on? Thanks
