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


Review

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.


Favorite Features

The whole package


Suggested Improvements

None

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


Review

The Avalon has been an excellent car although I have had it only 1 month. I am teaching my daughter to drive in it. She thinks it is great to drive. It is very smooth and easy to handle. My last vehicle was an SUV so this is a luxurious upgrade!


Favorite Features

Love the sensor wipers. The windshield get wet, the wipers come on at the speed required to keep the windows clear.


Suggested Improvements

We would like to be able to turn off the dual heat/air completely on one side but still have it operating on the other side.

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


Review

This is the second Avalon we have purchased. The first was a 1996. Toyota has really "aged" this car. Steering in numb and requires constant correction at highway speeds. It is almost tiring to drive. Had to return it to the dealer at 500 miles - steering wheel was off center. Also too many rattles in a car of this price. On the positive side - room and comfort for passengers is outstanding


Favorite Features

Seating comfort, heated seats, JBL stereo


Suggested Improvements

Steering/Handling, Lack of folding mirrors

Just an ALL around fun car to own and drive. I think that it drives and handles better than '03 LS Lincoln! My wife owns a Toyato also,'02 Camry LS, and she's very happy with it!


Favorite Features

Craftsmanship/Quality.

Fixed mirrors (ext.).
