Review of the 2003 Toyota Avalon

  • A comfortable, though pasteurized, full-size sedan.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Lexus-like quality, smooth V6 engine, huge rear seat.

  • Cons

    High price tag, bland personality.

    A few minor changes are in store for Toyota's large sedan. On the outside, you'll find freshened styling that consists of a new grille, new taillamps and redesigned bumpers. Inside, the 2003 Avalon has been upgraded with dual-stage airbags and ISO-FIX child safety seat anchor points. XLS models also have more features this year, including an autodimming driver-side mirror, rain-sensing wipers, a simulated wood-trimmed steering wheel and an optional navigation system.

Dream come true

Vehicle: 2003 Toyota Avalon XL 4dr Sedan w/Bench Seats (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

I THOUGHT ABOUT TRADING UP TO THIS CAR FOR SEVERAL YEARS. ONCE I BOUGHT IT AND DROVE IT FOR 30 DAYS, I KNEW I HAD MADE THE RIGHT DECISION. ITS EVERYTHING I WANT IN A CAR. TYPICAL TOYOTA QUALITY.ITS SMOOTH, QUIET AND ELEGANT TO DRIVE. IT S A DREAM TO DRIVE.




Great comfort and power

Vehicle: 2003 Toyota Avalon XL 4dr Sedan w/Bench Seats (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

This car has great acceleration speed and provides superb comfort. I considered the Camry; however, the comfort level of the Avalon is leaps and bounds above it. There is an abundance of leg room in the rear passenger seats. Good handling ability. Large trunk. Fuel mileage in city driving rarely exceeds 21 mpg.




Lincoln man tries toyota avalon

Vehicle: 2003 Toyota Avalon XL 4dr Sedan w/Bench Seats (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

Roomy enough for easy access for the handicap w/the bench seat and to accomodate a large walker or wheelchair. Only the 1990 Lincolns could do the same. Better buy. Taking it in; doesn't shift to low; door closes hard and just doesn't cool like the American makes. Like my Casis Pearl color; very attractive...

Vehicle: 2003 Toyota Avalon XL 4dr Sedan w/Bench Seats (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

This is a great car. I have driven many different cars and none can compare to the Avalon's smooth, quiet and comfortable ride. Combined with Toyota reliability, it cant be beat.
