2000 Toyota Avalon XLS 4dr Sedan


Review

This car has been in my family for almost 8 years now and is still going strong. It rides and drives wonderfully, and the only problem we've had with it was with the automatic choke a couple years ago; we took it to our local Toyota dealer and had it fixed. The mileage is pretty good (about 23/city and 28/highway) for a car of its age. It has withstood rough roads and has over 170,000 miles on it (taken one trip to Disney World (16-ish hours total) and one trip to Savannah, GA (18-ish hours total) and was driven several miles to work and back most of the time with no problems). All in all, this car is a downright champion.


Best Features

JBL sound system, 6 CD changer.


Worst Features

None

Review

I have had this car for about 5 months now, absolutely love it! Fun to drive, reliable, I step on the gas and the pickup is great, comfortable leather seats, just a joy to drive! I thought I would like the heated seats better than I do, but I don't see what the big deal is really. I drive my car all over the state for my job and it performs flawlessly, unmatched Toyota quality. Mine had around 98k when I bought it but you could tell it had been taken care of. My speaker system is a bit flakey, the rear speaker is blown and two of the front speakers go in and out a lot, other than the speakers the car is great. Buy one and you won't regret it! Mpg is around 29-30 hwy and around 21 or so city.


Best Features

Comfortable seats, GREAT pickup, good mpg, classy looks, big trunk, alot of storage space, dual climate controls are great.


Worst Features

Don't know why they didn't put the tire pressure monitoring system on this car, I have a 2000 Sienna and it has it on there and the Sienna is no where near as luxurious as the Avvy. Steering wheel mounted controls would have been nice, all of that is on later models though.

Review

Purchased brand new. Very roomy interior, especially in back seat. Very comfortable for local and distance driving. Excellent ACTUAL gas mileage: 24-26 mpg city & commuting; 26-32 mpg sustained hwy driving. Only problems in 7.5 yrs was a fuel pump that needed to be replaced after 4 yrs and the in-dash radio/CD player after 5 yrs. Have performed all scheduled maintenance at recommended intervals. Maintenance costs have been low: $725/yr over entire period owned; $900/yr during past 5 yrs, including replacement of timing belt at recommended 90K mileage. Best car I've ever owned. Will buy another this year.


Best Features

2 personalized settings for both front seats & mirrors. Heated outside mirrors. Heated seats. In-dash 6-disk CD player/radio with multiple, quality speakers. Roomy trunk. Excellent gas mileage. Gas mileage and other trip info displays on front dash.


Worst Features

A better, less expensive in-dash 6- disk CD player. Trip display to include a mpg memory setting that can be reset for an entire trip or tank of gas, not just one that automatically resets each time the engine is starts.

This car is great. The electronic stability control, traction control and ABS brakes are perfect for driving in the snow. The interior is SOOOO big I get comments all the time.

The steering is a little vague.
