My 00 Avy — This 00 avalon has been a great car, very reliable and a great family vehicle. A lot of fun to drive with a smooth drive and easy handling. Will definitely recommend the Avalon, and my next car should be another Avalon

21st Century Humber Imperial — I've always admired the styling of 1960's British sedans: My Avalon reminds me of a 1965-7 Humber Imperial, albeit much better made and much better to drive. It's the luxury British saloon car my father couldn't afford. On the open highway, and even on city streets, it wafts along with an ease and quiet swiftness that makes travel a delight rather than a duty. It's not a sports car, and doesn't respond to the swift twisties like a smaller car would, but it has it's place in the cosmic scheme of urban and long distance travel.

My Second Avalon. I'll Get Another. — I will probably be a toyota driver until someone shows me a better car. back seat is huge, trunk handles everything i put into it and the pass through is the best idea in any car. leather upholstery is rugged and well sewn. best engine i've driven. i have 140k and it's just getting broken in. instrumentation is great. what else can i say?

Pros

I loved the way it drove and rode on long trips, best of 3 Avalons that I have owned..  The visibility out all drirections was excellent.

Cons

Disappointed when the big bass woofers paper cone disintegrated.  Rear shock bushings wore out and made for rear rattle when going over bumps, but the shock absorption continued.

Very Nice, I Would Buy And Drive Another If Wife Was Not Intent On A Newer Car. — Toyota does a nice job with this flagship mostly "American built" car. I can drive a Lexas equivalent without the sigma of a snobby car. And I am of the age (67) where comfort if more important than what the kids think. Alas, I upgraded to the 2008 when a neighbor backed into the driver's door.

Overall A Very Nice Car — its pretty much the same as a lexus LS series, but without the lexus pricetag. extremely spacious, very comfortable ride. its a safe car for the year. i really enjoy driving it. the only problem ive had is finding a replacement subwoofer for it. the stock subs were only made for 2000 to 2004 avalons.

Toyota Reliability — Love that V6 power, only problem is that it's front wheel drive. Fuel Usage is a bit higher that I'd like when I drive it, not too bad when my fiance drives. Car is quite fun to drive when you put your foot down

Great Reliable Cheep Car — The 2000 Toyota Avalon is one of the most useful and comfortable cars out there. First, the car is one of the most comfortable cars to dirve on the road. Second, it fits a good amount of people in the car and not being cramped. Third, there is a lot of room for boxes and groceries in the trunk. Fourth, the car is very reliable. Basically it is an overall good car if you do not want to spend that much money on a new car.
