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


I have always wanted this car ever since
I sat in the back seat of a friend's
1999 Avalon. I was amazed at the room.
This model has lived up to the

Besides the interior room, the riding
comfort is outstanding. I have owned 2
Saab 9000's, and I'm very pleased with
the Avalon's luxury feel.

On the downside, while the handling is
fine for me, it does not handle like my
Saabs or other sports sedans I've
driven. I need to slow down a lot more
going into turns with the car sliding
more than hugging the road. It is fine
on the freeway, but my wife feels it
tends to drift a little.

Best Features

Interior room and seat comfort. I don't have a preference being in front or back. Display is very easy to read, I enjoy the XLS model features of heated and memory seats and memory mirrors. Large trunk area. Rain sensor wipers is a neat feature - not quite perfected yet.

Worst Features

Make the handling more responsive while keeping the ride as comfortable.
