2003 Toyota Avalon XLS 4dr Sedan w/Bucket Seats (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
My wife and I looked at lots of options, attended car shows, read available
information and spent 1.5 years before making our decision to buy our
Avalon. Since we keep our vehicles longer than 10 years, we are careful
when making our decisions to purchase. Our 2nd place choices were the
Acura (much less interior room) and the Lexus RX300. We are certain this
was the best choice considering the cost of ownership and our tastes.
The interior is great! The exterior dimensions are rather small compared to
the roomy interior. Very quite ride, nice sound system with the 6 CD in the
dash as compared to the glove box or trunk.
This vehicle should have a 5 speed automatic transmission. Would be nice
to have real wood, but who can tell it is not real? An option to beef up the
suspension and increase the useful load would be nice.
