Avalon XLS

2003 Toyota Avalon XLS 4dr Sedan w/Bucket Seats (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
Review
I have always wanted this car ever since I sat in the back seat of a friend's 1999 Avalon. I was amazed at the room. This model has lived up to the expectations. Besides the interior room, the riding comfort is outstanding. I have owned 2 Saab 9000's, and I'm very pleased with the Avalon's luxury feel. On the downside, while the handling is fine for me, it does not handle like my Saabs or other sports sedans I've driven. I need to slow down a lot more going into turns with the car sliding more than hugging the road. It is fine on the freeway, but my wife feels it tends to drift a little.
Favorite Features
Interior room and seat comfort. I don't have a preference being in front or back. Display is very easy to read, I enjoy the XLS model features of heated and memory seats and memory mirrors. Large trunk area. Rain sensor wipers is a neat feature - not quite perfected yet.
Suggested Improvements
Make the handling more responsive while keeping the ride as comfortable.
