2000 Toyota Avalon Sedan XLS 4dr Sedan


Review

Pros: Great fuel economy for the size. VERY comfortable interior. Interior cabin is huge. Tons of rear legroom ! Cons: Rides like a 1970 Lincoln Mark 5 but handles like one too. Getting ready to take it in for yet another Toyota recall. Sensors going bad left and right. 02 and air-fuel ratio sensors and now the air bag light started flashing. It is also starting to have electrical gremlins (lights flickering)I have owned several Toyotas in the past and the quality and reliability used to be 2nd to none. Man has that changed. Ever wonder why Ford is selling so many vehicles now ? Because they build a better vehicle...Wake up Toyota, you lost yet another customer.


Best Features

Ride, fuel economy, can seat 5 tall adults comfortably


Worst Features

Install quality and reliability just like the good ole days

Review

I work for a Toyota dealership and bought a 1-Owner 2000 Toyota Avalon XLS with 85,000 miles and it has been a pure diamond. I just had the windows tinted and the car doesn't have a scratch on it and has all the service records as well. I'm very pleased with this one!


Best Features

My Avalon is one of a kind because of its front bench seat. I can seat 6 comfortably!


Worst Features

Better gas mileage.

2000 Toyota Avalon Sedan XL 4dr Sedan


Review

Roomy and comfortable. Fast and maneuverable. Some say it's "old people's car" but its fast, accelerates well. Interior and controls are well laid out.


Best Features

Quiet and soft ride. Inside as roomy as large American cars. Trunk is huge


Worst Features

When shifter is in park, it obstructs lighter socket, cup holders are not deep enough, twin exhausts would be nice and steering wheel mounted controls for radio would be helpful

Review

Wife's car but I drive it often. Had one service visit in ten years - dirty MAF sensor. Doesn't get any better than that. Does everything you'd want it to do in silence and comfort. Remarkably large cabin for a mid-sized vehicle. Trunk holds a ton of stuff too. JBL sound system is great. Visibility is outstanding (except as noted below). Wife gets 22 MPG (reg gas) around town. I get almost 30 on highway. Paint still looks like new. Only one small and insignificant rattle in almost 90K miles. I call it a Japanese Buick but its much better than a GM car.


Best Features

Quiet, large cabin with plenty of room for long-legged people. Engine & tranny work without noise or vibration.


Worst Features

Visibility driver-to-inst-panel needs help. Steering wheel blocks speedo. Needs stiffer shocks/springs - car sags when fully loaded esp. in rear. Front seats could use a bit of added padding for long trips.

Review

I bought the car new and most of the time I am the only driver. I put new tires on this past winter. The car is clean. Except for regular maintenance I have had very little trouble with this car. I replaced the water pump a few years ago and the brakes.


Best Features

I love this car.


Worst Features

I cannot think of any.
