2000 Toyota Avalon XLS 4dr Sedan


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.
