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


After renting a 2002 Avalon for two
weeks, and driving it for over 2500
miles, I was very impressed as to how
this car rode at high speeds for
hours, without making me tired. The
seats are comfortable, the back seats
are like sitting on a sofa, the
interior is roomy and very quiet, and
the stereo is excellent.

I decided then to buy a 2003 Avalon
XLS, and I have not been
disappointed. For a relatively large
car the handling is very nimble, with
decent acceleration. Breaking is
smooth and competent.

The only complaint I have is a ticking
relay noise that eminates from under
the dashboard.

Best Features

The hushed interior. Smooth engine. Dual climate control and comfortable seats. The roomy interior and a nice trunk size.

Worst Features

Please have the outside mirrors fold in, as on the Japanese model, and the Lexus.
