2003 Toyota Avalon 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."


Best 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.


Worst Features

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.

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


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!!!


Best Features

Heated Seats, Navigation System and Traction Control


Worst Features

The heated seats should recycle more frequently.

Review

The wife and I spent several months looking at cars. After testing driving the dealer's Avalon03 demo, we both wanted the Avalon. It has more room than the ES300 handles as good if not better, plus is much cheaper. Some reviews have said this car is slow. Ours is very fast and seems to be getting good mileage on the Hwy. This car is a pleasure to drive.


Best Features

The room, ride and comfort is foremost. The auto wipers are great. The JBL sound system is outstanding.


Worst Features

Folding side view mirrors.
