2001 Toyota Avalon XLS 4dr Sedan w/Bucket Seats (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

OK, I know the Avalon is supposed to be a great car, but I've had a few expensive problems with brakes. Excessive rust near the rotors caused the brakes to fail after only 35,000 miles, and again at 55,000 miles. I've been told by two dealers that the brakes will be a chronic problem. Paint on the hood is chipping and peeling, and the CD player had to be replaced after two years. Every other Avalon owner I've met loves their car, so maybe mine is the exception.


Best Features

Smooth ride, great acceleration, comfortable interior (I'm 6'6" tall - this car is VERY roomy).


Worst Features

Better brakes, dashboard lights glare on windshield at night.

Heavier or a little stronger body

2001 Toyota Avalon XLS 4dr Sedan w/Bucket Seats (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Bought with 21,000 miles. Now at 113,000, same brakes. Only one problem with faulty sensor, 27 mph on highway, 23 combined city/hwy. I sold my 97 mercedes after many problems. I would consider a 2005 avalon, except it uses premium fuel. This is the best car for the money I have owned. I am 6'4 and have more room than the Mercedes. No loss of oil after 5,000 mi between changes, oil is still honey colored. All I do is rotate tires and change oil. How can you not love this car?


Best Features

Seating comfort, multi informational read-out on dash. MPG. Lots of power. Re-sale value higher than average.


Worst Features

They did all the improvements in 2005. Its a Lexus without the $$$.

2001 Toyota Avalon XLS 4dr Sedan w/Bucket Seats (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Waited till retiring to buy my special car. It is wonderful. Roomy, quiet (hard of hearing but no problem in the Avalon), smooth, reliable, safety features outstanding.


Best Features

Quiet interior and roomy space.


Worst Features

Somehow keep the steering wheel from blocking the driving displays. Allow ash try closure when something plugged into lighter. Window defroster on auto is sometimes confusing to set properly.
