2000 Toyota Avalon XLS 4dr Sedan
Review
When my new 2000 Acura TL arrived, I couldn't get comfortable in the driver's seat (6'2", 220 lb) so I canceled the deal and bought the Avalon XLS instead. Back then, I thought it was ugly and definitely a compromise. Now, it looks "classic" and the lines seem much cleaner, and it has been 100% trouble free, but too much is sacrificed for ride comfort. I found *huge* improvements by upgrading the shocks (KYB), tires (Michelin Exalto 225/50x16), and brake pads (Red Stuff)... and the roomy front seat has spoiled me for some otherwise very good cars.
Favorite Features
Interior space, simple controls, build quality, comfort, useful trip computer.
Suggested Improvements
Handling package. I'm in the target demographic but don't want to show my AARP card to get the doorlocks to work. I'd love to see the equivalent of a Police Special built on this platform. Better, larger brakes, stiffer shocks would be a start.
