You know how you get the feeling that I bought this car new and after 3 or 4 years, you kind of get the itch to buy a new car; well with this car and it is the fifth new car I have purchased, I have no desire. This is a car I can imaginge driving 15 or 20 years from now and that never happened with the previous four.
Inside comfort (I'm a big guy)! Handling, looks, features.
None except for GPS, which is available with new Avalons.
The Avalon is an extremely quiet,
great riding & driving car. It's
comfortable, has good accelleration,
and handles nicely in traffic. The
interior is clean with enough techie
features to give it the upscale feel
of its Lexus siblings. Plenty of
headroom and foot room, even for tall
people, and even though I've never sat
in the back I'm told it's very roomy
even behind the driver with the seat
all the way back. It's at the top of
my list for my next new car.
Quiet ride, great handling, top-notch
stereo system and fun to drive.
Aluminum wheel finish is flaking off
after being exposed to northern winter
weather. Climate control is a little
tricky if you need something other
This car is so good that I bought a
2002 Avalon XL with the leather luxury
package for my wife. She is very
pleased with her car. The car is very
comfortable with the electric seats and
lumbar support on the drivers side.
Its appeal seems to be to older drivers
who upgrade from the Toyota Camry as we
did. I am waiting for the new 2005
Avalon as I am interested in buying
anouther one. I hope Toyota does not
lessen its quality or change its
platform as it did with the Camry when
they changed the model.
Firm seats, lumbar support, two side
controls for air conditioning, electric
door and trunk locks.
Telescoptic steering wheel, fold down
rear seats to trunk, front seat should
be able to move back a few inches more
for drivers six feet plus, less
reflective dashboard lens, lumbar
support for front passenger seat.
This car is very confortable to sit in
and smooth on the road. I had a
Cadillac and that car doesn't even
compare. The car is quiet and
workmanship is solid. I always heard
that people who have Toyotas drive them
many miles and that can't be can't be
said about American made products. I'm
sold on Toyota!

They geared the 2000 model different
than my moms 1999 model. I would like
a little more acceration power when
driving highway speed but the car easly
handles hills and pulling out in
