Ryan b/c I hate TOYOTAS! lol... Trust me I dislike rice buy a Honda then!
I actually do like Hondas they make good cars, but uhh I drove an 05 Avalon in the spring at a local dealer like March 05 to see how great they were, and uhhh still like my Bonne SLE better! I tend to like to support my own, after all my Bonneville was built in the USA with pride by teh UAW!

Avalon
Camry/Solara
Corolla
Sienna
Trucks
RAV4

just a small part of what Toyota builds in North America... basically the rule of thumb - only the topper Lexus models are still built in Japan.

Probably not the best idea to be going back and forth, this is the Bonneville club, but do keep in mind you are stepping on some toes here... did I mention I run a Toyota forum?

I understand man, you're totally entitled to your personal opinion. I'm just saying that there is little basis to mock Avalon owners based strictly on an objective comparison of the two vehicles.

Like repinS said, the Avalon and many other Toyota models are built in the US or Canada, so you're not doing your "country a disservice" by buying them.
