2003 Toyota Avalon XLS 4dr Sedan w/Bench Seats (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
I finally broke down and bought a
Toyota after hearing the glowing
reviews from all the owners. What a
mistake. I thought that I was buying
a 'reliable' car. However, the day
after I bought the car, it wouldn't
start. The battery was dead. I checked
and couldn't find any electrical
item 'on'. The dealer towed it and
replaced the battery. They couldn't
find anything wrong either. The rest of
the problems were minor compared to
this, but I expected zero defects from
the way everyone rants about Toyota. As
soon as I find a gullible buyer, I'm
unloading this trash.
The engine has pickup, plenty of leg
room, good sound system, and trunk
Need more comfortable seats for long
drives, the transmission shifts
roughly, and quality is no better than
any other manufacturer.
