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!


Best Features

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


Worst Features

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


Best Features

Seating comfort, heated seats, JBL stereo


Worst Features

Steering/Handling, Lack of folding mirrors

Review

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!


Best Features

Craftsmanship/Quality.


Worst Features

Fixed mirrors (ext.).

Review

We have owned buicks, oldsmobiles,
hondas, station wagons, and have test
driven all of the larger sedans,
including Mercedes, Maxima, Mazda, and
Lexus, prior to buying this Avalon.
They either have too much road or wind
noise. I cannot tolerate the least of
those. For the money, I do not think
there is a better buy. It is truly the
smoothest quietest ride we have
experienced. We tried them all. I am
very picky about wind and road noise.
Sales people do not like to deal with
me.


Best Features

Quite and smooth. Enjoy the 16 inch wheels and tires. Lots of quality for the money.


Worst Features

Nothing at this time.
