2003 Avalon is still noisy
By Mary Payne on


2003 Toyota Avalon XLS 4dr Sedan w/Bucket Seats (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


I heard something like wind noise in
the front. The salesman, of course,
said no, no. He couldn't hear
anything. This is a luxury car.

The audio system was fabulous. The
salesman was talking. I turned off the
music. I asked him to be quiet. On
surface streets, it was lovely. The
fan was blowing when I took it onto the
freeway. But after I purchased it and
drove it on the freeway all alone and
with everything turned off, there is
DEFINITELY noise. I still can't
pinpoint it or figure out how this can

Best Features

There are a lot of nice things. It is a BEAUTIFUL automobile.

Worst Features

"Sound absorbing...sound deadener materials ...help minimize noise....Wind noise has been reduced." www.avalon.toyota.com.au (2003). NOW it is obvious that meant Toyota had tried to fix the noise(s). THEY FAILED. Caution: This vehicle could adversely affect your hearing.
