Very Smooth Ride And Fuel Efficient — Bought new and have enjoyed the smooth ride, great mileage and the automatic wipers are amazing. Heated seats have also been nice. Storage in trunk is good and the doors open wide so that it is easy to get in and out of all seats.

Wish They Would Smooth Out The Lines On Future Models. The Box Desing Is Lame. — I've been a Toyota fan since my first Avalon (97). Great performance. High quality. Low cost maintenance. Good looking and fun to drive the family around. Put an aftermarket leather kit in it and thinking about an Inalfa sunroof if I keep it for a few more years.

Smooth Car, Poor Performance And Reliability — The car performs ok, but its steering is way to light with absolutely no feel or response. It has a very smooth and quiet ride, but its transmission sometimes shifts abruptly and is slow to downshift when more power is needed. The interior is very comfortable with a decent but very easy to use sounds system with 6 disc changer. The reliability of my particular car was good for the first 5 or so years, but lately has had its check engine light come on about once a month, which is way to high for any vehicle, yet alone a Toyota, which is known for its excellent reliability reputation.

Fine Transportation Vehicle — I don't have anything bad to say about this car. I have put on nearly 150,000 miles and the only non-routine maintenance on this car has been rear wheel bushings for $120 and shocks and struts for about $900, everything else has been by the book. I am pleased with it.

Best Bang For Your Buck. — best car ever made. I got it for a steal .Some philipeano guy sold it to me for $2000. The interior is in great shape so is the exterior. Has great sound and much more. You have to get one ! My car gets around 30 mpg in the city and 50 mpg on the high way. beter than a prius right.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

One-hundred Percent Grandpa's Car; But I Loved It — The Toyota Avalon has tight body lines, and predictibally over-boosted steering. The car's image is regarded as being a car for people over 60 years old, but at least people will excuse your scary driving.

Very Happy With 2003 Avalon — I bought my 2003 Avalon new and overall I've been very happy with it. Other than taking the car in for scheduled maintenance, I've only had a few minor problems (e.g. dead battery 9 months after buying the car). I have 34000 miles on it now and there are still no rattles or squeeks (even though I drive in a city full of potholes). The car still drives smoothly and the interior is roomy and quiet.

While It's A Great Looking Car, It's No Avalon Of Old By ncee
