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


Review

At 2000 miles and 2 1/2 months
ownership, car's power steering pump
failed while driving with a friend on a
trip to Florida. Three months later
charcoal canaster was leaking and
needed to be replaced. Enjoy everything
about the car, am considering replacing
it due to reliability. I need a car
that is dependable.


Best Features

Easy in driving.

2003 Toyota Avalon XLS 4dr Sedan w/Bucket Seats (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Test drive before you shop Lexus ES300
or Infiniti I35 sedan. Very Quiet and
roomy, good acceleration, feels like a
Lexus inside. Exterior Styling bland
but functional. A Japanese
Buick, with higher quality than its
American counterpart. Low maintenance
and insurance rates.


Best Features

Look of dash makes it appear to be more than an entry level luxury dedan. Ride and overall quality.


Worst Features

Tighten up steering, still a little soft/sway in turns.

Review

I heard something like wind noise in
the front. The salesman, of course,
said no, no. He couldn't hear
anything. This is a luxury car.

The audio system was fabulous. The
salesman was talking. I turned off the
music. I asked him to be quiet. On
surface streets, it was lovely. The
fan was blowing when I took it onto the
freeway. But after I purchased it and
drove it on the freeway all alone and
with everything turned off, there is
DEFINITELY noise. I still can't
pinpoint it or figure out how this can
be.


Best Features

There are a lot of nice things. It is a BEAUTIFUL automobile.


Worst Features

"Sound absorbing...sound deadener materials ...help minimize noise....Wind noise has been reduced." www.avalon.toyota.com.au (2003). NOW it is obvious that meant Toyota had tried to fix the noise(s). THEY FAILED. Caution: This vehicle could adversely affect your hearing.
