Nice cruiser roomy - noisy shocks
By avalonowner on


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


Have put about 30k on mine since buying new. Had to replace brakes. It is based on the same platform as the 97-2002 Camry. I owned a 1998 Camry which had shocks that made knocking noises over bumpy pavement. This Avalon, while very serene, also does the same thing. Maybe the bushings? It's annoying considering the rest of the car is pretty tight. Rear door squeaks when opening. Otherwise, it has been a reliable, relaxing vehicle.

Best Features

ROOM. Specifically legroom front and rear. One of THE best cars for tall people. I like the power up window and dual sun shades. Trunk is also HUGE. Quiet ride and smooth, excellent V6.

Worst Features

Well, the new Avalon came out in '05, so it probably addresses some issues. Noisy shock towers are annoying. Bigger wheels, too. 15" is a joke.
