2001 Toyota Avalon Sedan XLS 4dr Sedan w/Bucket Seats (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

The car has been a joy to own. I intend to purchase a new one at the beginning of the new model year. Gas, oil, lube and tires have been the only expense in operating the vehicle.


Favorite Features

It is so quiet and smooth riding. The backseats have more room than most large sedans. It has a lot of pep for a car that gets 30 mpg on the open road.


Suggested Improvements

Need iPod plug in. Shouldn't have to reset cruise after every stop. Same goes for mpg, miles traveled and other data should accumulate until you decide to zero it out. This would be helpful on a trip.

2001 Toyota Avalon Sedan XL 4dr Sedan w/Bucket Seats (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

My Avalon is a pleasure to drive in particular on long road trips. The response of the car is great as well as the comfort. Excellent gas mileage at approximately 29 mpg on the highway.


Favorite Features

The interior design of the Avalon is not only functional but attractive. The exterior of the car has a distinct look of class. The handling of the car is smooth and reassuring when in heavy traffic. We have owned six Toyotas since the 1968 Toyota Crown sedan. The resale value has always been good.


Suggested Improvements

It would be difficult in my opinion to improve on Toyota automobiles. Might add a little more exterior trim in order to protect the doors from dents.

2001 Toyota Avalon Sedan XL 4dr Sedan w/Bucket Seats (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

If you want a quality large sedan, this Avalon is your car! This one has a bench seat which gives you more front seat room; wish they were still made with bench seats. I will hang onto this one because is has one, instead of purchasing a new one. I have had no mechanical problems at all. The car drives very smooth and has great pick up. The love the back end look, the exterior front is kind of boring.


Favorite Features

The front adjustable power split bench seat and the arm rest! A great feature is the dual visors, one for the side and one for the front window.


Suggested Improvements

Better body style, more modern.

Review

This car has been virtually trouble free. There appears to be a little too much wear and tear on tires which might be the driver as well as wear demand on brakes. Comfort is incredible with no back aches after hours of driving, realiability the best of any car I ever owned. Very roomy, quiet, and resists road and external noise. Danger of falling asleep at the wheel it is so smooth. VSC has not been an annoyance but a pleasant surprise. Sunroof adds much to enjoyment of drive. Speakers and sound very excellent and I am a very discriminant listener. Compares to Lexus model as same car but much less $.


Favorite Features

Comfort, heated seats and sunroof, large well lit displays, spacious


Suggested Improvements

Visibility of gauges from driver position. Addition of stereo and display controls on steering wheel would be more functional.
