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


Review

I buy them used and I replaced my 1995 Avalon with a 2003 Avalon. I will replace this one with another. If it ever wears out that is. They are the best cars that I have ever owned.


Favorite Features

I really like the NORMAL/PERFORMANCE trans program button and of course 25-32 MPG IS GREAT TOO!!


Suggested Improvements

I would like just a little wider stance.

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


Review

This Avalon has been the best car I have ever owned. I have had it more than a year now and bought it used but still have had no problems. It is smooth, luxurious, and every day I drive it I find myself surprised by one of the Avalon's many features. Someone put great thought into designing this car from the automatic wipers to the 110 power plug this car is perfect. I get 21 mpg on average but it is worth the extra $2 a week to drive such a fantastic piece of machinery. I'm 26 and thought this car was an 'old man car' but after driving it I will not drive anything else. Thanks Toyota!


Favorite Features

automatic wipers, digital dual-zone climate control, 110 power plug, information center, automatic windows/sunroof, traction control, seat memory, sweet JBL stereo


Suggested Improvements

aux plug for IPod

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


Review

Over 100,000 and runs great, over 80,000 on the Michelin tires. Starts up every time. Great ride and lots of room in trunk and interior easy to maintain without nickle and dimeing you to death.


Favorite Features

Very generous on storage and room interior with head space.


Suggested Improvements

Battery-no indication when battery needs replacement 4 year life not good.

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


Review

No problems in 5 years/60,000 miles except warranty issue on the horn assembly (horn would go off intermittently). Dealer replaced air bag assembly in steering wheel and that solved the problem. OEM battery lasted 3 years


Favorite Features

Interior room and highway ride are unbelievable. As good or better than any Lexus, Mercedes, BMW I have ridden in


Suggested Improvements

OEM tires were terrible - only 27,00 miles out of them. Replacement Michelins were not any better. No brake work after 60,000 miles!

Review

Exceptionally comfortable and functionally includes everything, but lacks excitement. Still gets great gas milage.


Favorite Features

Comfy heated seats & 6-disc changer


Suggested Improvements

Plain vanilia design, needs a smoother more energized look.
