2004 Toyota Avalon XLS 4dr Sedan w/Bucket Seats (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
Yes, truly a great car. Perfect, no. Has been perfect for my wife, I have had issues with it however. Noise from the rear end that turned out to be bushings on the rear stabilizer bars. Replaced twice. Recently the battery went and when a new 5 year was installed the computer died, literally. YES, Toyota did warranty the computer! Even after 5.5 years. Would we by another Toyota? Yes, in another 2 or 3 years depending on usage & miles..
Gas mileage, sound system, ride, moon roof, leather bucket seats, safety system, trunk space (great), comfort is great.
Rear sway bar bushings. Heated seat controls should be two (2) levels of control. Dash reading is often a problem when the sun is at your back,cannot always see the panel. Optional 10 disc Cd player.
