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


Review

This is the first NEW car I have ever owned. I did much research before buying this car. It is everything I expected it to be and more. I was involved in a head on collision while driving this Avalon. I thought I was dead. I honestly believe that this car saved my life. Thank you Toyota for building this car. I know that I will be more than happy in my next Avalon and I know that I will be safe.


Best Features

SAFETY, Large Moonroof, quiet ride, great stereo, amount of room in front and back and trunk, fuel economy, Great car.


Worst Features

A little more interior "real" wood trim would be nice, foldable side mirrors, adjustable heat settings for front seats, available tinted windows, more horsepower when needed.

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


Review

Wonderful car to drive and transport passengers. Door handle quality is poor with pealing chrome. When rear left window is down about 4 inches I get a noise of flapping. I will buy another one but test drive with windows slightly down in back as the noise of flapping is very irritating. The only other problem I have had is the rear bumper paint is very fragile. It scrapes off with minor friction.


Best Features

I found it as comfortable as my Cadillac with same amount of back seat leg room for guests.


Worst Features

Chrome door handles can cut you when they peal. Paint on plastic bumpers needs a better base coat to adhere to. Paint comes off with minor road debre.

Review

I absolutely love this car. I have severe back problems and this is the only place I can actually be comfortable. The only flaw I found was in the cruise control. It does not maintain it's speed on a decline. I have never been happier with a car than I have been with this.


Best Features

My favorite feature is the comfort of the seats and the leg room for my passengers. The trunk space is wonderful. I can't think of one item I would change in this car.


Worst Features

My only suggestion would be a better cruise control system. My other vehicles would maintain their speed much better on declines.
