2002 Toyota Avalon XL 4dr Sedan w/Bucket Seats (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I have never enjoyed driving, owning,
sitting in, riding in or traveling in
any vehicle as much as I have enjoyed
my Avalon. The dealership has tried
but have yet to be successful in
convincing me to trade it in because
nothing seems better. Our friends
always want us to drive and we usually
agree because it's so comfortable.


Best Features

I love the seat adjustments, I love the incredible leg room in all 6 spots. I think the dash board was a stroke of genius. I think the peripheral views are excellent and better than most other vehicles. The trunk size is amazing considering the space inside the car.


Worst Features

The hose needs to be insulated from the engine heat so that when using the vents the air retains outside temp. A pocket behind the front passenger seat would be nice. The heated air flow for floor only is obstructed to the rear.

comfortable ride, good acceleration,
good amenities. However, transaxle has
whine between 30 and 40 mph; wind noise
around outside mirrors. Shouldn't have
these problems with top of line Toyota
and for the price.

apparent good reliability after 2.5 years and 24000 miles. comfortable ride, excellent auto climate control, XLS amenities.


Worst Features

eliminate annoying road/transaxle noises, equip with a quieter set of tires (has Michelins)

Review

This is the first NEW car I have ever
owned. I did much research before
buying this car. It is everything I
expected it to be and more. I was
involved in a head on collision while
driving this Avalon. I thought I was
dead. I honestly believe that this car
saved my life. Thank you Toyota for
building this car. I know that I will
be more than happy in my next Avalon
and I know that I will be safe.


Best Features

SAFETY, Large Moonroof, quiet ride, great stereo, amount of room in front and back and trunk, fuel economy, Great car.


Worst Features

A little more interior "real" wood trim would be nice, foldable side mirrors, adjustable heat settings for front seats, available tinted windows, more horsepower when needed.

2002 Toyota Avalon XLS 4dr Sedan w/Bucket Seats (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Wonderful car to drive and transport
passengers. Door handle quality is
poor with pealing chrome. When rear
left window is down about 4 inches I
get a noise of flapping. I will buy
another one but test drive with windows
slightly down in back as the noise of
flapping is very irritating. The only
other problem I have had is the rear
bumper paint is very fragile. It
scrapes off with minor friction.


Best Features

I found it as comfortable as my Cadillac with same amount of back seat leg room for guests.


Worst Features

Chrome door handles can cut you when they peal. Paint on plastic bumpers needs a better base coat to adhere to. Paint comes off with minor road debre.
