Used Toyota Avalon – What a Great Value!!

A couple of months ago I had an unfortunate experience.

My trusty 2000 Toyota 4Runner, was smashed and totaled by a red light runner… Just outside of Avondale.

The only good thing about the whole experience was that no one was hurt (not physically any way) and I replaced it with an even older Toyota Avalon.

Initially, being someone who enjoys their out door time, I wasn’t sure how I would adjust to not having the off road ability of the 4Runner.  However, it only took a few days and a trip to Tucson AZ, to remind me just how great the Toyota Avalon is.

Even though my Toyota Avalon is 14 years old with 130k miles on it, the ride is more of a “Glide” and I’m getting twice the fuel efficiency – compared to the 2000 4runner.

Why am I telling you all of this??

Because we just took in a 2004 Toyota Avalon XLS with under 25k miles!

    Dave hooked me up ! No frills, a lot of thrills with the new Avalon I purchsed. I was in need of a new car, and only test drove one. I usually do not do this, but felt comfortable with the relaxed , no-nonsense approach. Of course , it definitely helped that I got a smoking deal on a nice pre-owned vehicle. I wll recommend my daughter to come to Dave for the purchaase of her next car.

    Thanks Dave !
