2002 Toyota Avalon Sedan XLS 4dr Sedan w/Bucket Seats (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This vehicle gets very good gas mileage. It has very good, get up and go power. With 80,000 miles, we have had no major mechanical incidents. We love the roomy trunk space, as well as the full size spare tire. The one negative: the trunk lid sounds like a piece of tin when one shuts it giving a sense of cheapness. Otherwise, an excellent purchase. Resale value is not yet known but we will know soon.


Best Features

Dependability.


Worst Features

Need a quality trunk lid.

2002 Toyota Avalon Sedan XLS 4dr Sedan w/Bucket Seats (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I LOVE this car! From the rich leather interior and exterior classic looks; love the heated seats! The interior is so roomy and the trunk is large. I get so many compliments on this car; especially the color. Desert Sand Mica. I WILL buy another Avalon in the future. Although, not too soon, as in 4 years, I only have 20,000 miles on the odometer. If you are considering a new car purchase, I would greatly recommend ANY TOYOTA PURCHASE. The quality and reliability are 1st rate. This car also has the split-bench front seats and I love them.


Best Features

Luxurious interior and roominess. Heated seats. Premium audio system. Great fuel mileage.


Worst Features

Remove the ashtray and make it a drink holder. The holder in the front console is NOT convenient. Add break-away mirrors.

2002 Toyota Avalon Sedan XL 4dr Sedan w/Bucket Seats (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I have never enjoyed driving, owning, sitting in, riding in or traveling in any vehicle as much as I have enjoyed my Avalon. The dealership has tried but have yet to be successful in convincing me to trade it in because nothing seems better. Our friends always want us to drive and we usually agree because it's so comfortable.


Best Features

I love the seat adjustments, I love the incredible leg room in all 6 spots. I think the dash board was a stroke of genius. I think the peripheral views are excellent and better than most other vehicles. The trunk size is amazing considering the space inside the car.


Worst Features

The hose needs to be insulated from the engine heat so that when using the vents the air retains outside temp. A pocket behind the front passenger seat would be nice. The heated air flow for floor only is obstructed to the rear.

Worst Features

eliminate annoying road/transaxle noises, equip with a quieter set of tires (has Michelins)
