After 8 Years, Still Love It
By Happy Camper on


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


I've owned my 2001 for 8 years and I still love it. Never had a problem with it after 125,000 miles. Passengers get in it today and remark about how nice and comfortable it is. I liked it so much I purchased another new 2008 Avalon 6 months ago for my wife. I kept the 2001 and use it as my daily driver. The 2001 is still worth 1/3 of my purchase price, but I don't even intend to sell it. I'll probably end up giving it to my grand-daughter to drive when she turns 16 in a couple of years. This has been the best car I've ever owned, including "S class" Mercedes and 740IL BMW. The only difference is the V-8 performance and the cost was 1/3 the price.

Best Features

Just change the oil every 3000-4000 miles and change the timing belt at about 100,000 miles... 3 sets of brakes and 4 sets of tires and gas. Cheap long term transportation. Hoping I get the same great results from my new one.

Worst Features

At about 115,000 the leather on the top of the steering wheel tore from wear.
