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


Review

I travel about 30,000 miles per year in my job. The Avalon is an ideal choice for this type of use. Definitely a Lexus in a Toyota wrapper.


Favorite Features

Smooth ride and extremely quiet. Engine performance is outstanding. Climate control provides great comfort.


Suggested Improvements

Change front-end styling.

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


Review

We test drove this vehicle and fell in love with it. Didn't even bother with two other models with which we were comparing. The ride was smooth and noise free....two things that were on our list of 'wants.' Almost a year later and we still think it's a great piece of machinery!


Favorite Features

quietness,comfort, plenty of leg room both front and back, and the music system (6 disc changer)


Suggested Improvements

Nothing...I think it's fine the way it is :)

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


Review

The wife and I spent several months debating between a Lexus GS 300 and the Avalon. Recently at a Annual Tent Sale we test drove the dealer's 2003 Avalon, we both fell in love with the leather and interior design. Never got a chance to test drive the GS 300 because we were afraid of the sale price for an equivalent year and milage. This car is a joy to drive and most of all our two kids "love it."


Favorite Features

The leather seats and the his and hers seat memory option and all the automatic controls. However, the quiteness and smooth ride is the best of all! Dash layout is better looking than Lexus GS models.


Suggested Improvements

Better huggin seats more like the Lexus IS models would have been a great improvement! Tighter stearring, it's a little too smooth. The informational display is way to big and bright. Tighter cornering would be better.

Review

This car is a very big BANG for the buck. Traction control, Force Dsitribution braking, ABS 4-channel brakes, Navigation system, auto-lights and wipers, heated seats, SMOOTH RIDE, cavernous back seat, 6-CD in-dash changer and REAL WOOD inserts. This is a FINE car. If it is like all the other Toyota's I've ever owned the only parts that will ever fail no this car will be the AMERICAN MADE PARTS!!!! My Vote is BUY THIS CAR!!!


Favorite Features

Heated Seats, Navigation System and Traction Control


Suggested Improvements

The heated seats should recycle more frequently.
