I love the sound system with the factory subwoofer.

I am the second owner of a silver 2001 Toyota Avalon. I have driven it for one year now with no problems or mechanical issues aside from needing to replace the struts due to normal wear. With over 200, 000 miles on it, the engine is still strong and the transmission shifts perfectly. It has been maintained by the Toyota dealership for all recommended services such as oil changes and tune ups.

It has an ashtray and a sunroof.

I bought the car used with nearly 300, 000 miles on it. There were no problems with the car whatsoever. Very reliable and great on gas. Rides very smoothly. No unnecessary jerks and bumps or sounds. It has a sunroof which completely opens and is great in the summertime. Both the front and rear seats are leather and it feels like I am sitting on my couch. Very comfortable and reliable car.

- Austin F

Reliable 2001 Toyota Avalon.

I love that my Avalon is really reliable. It runs well and I do not usually have maintenance issues. At this point it is generally expensive to get routine maintenance--things always pop up--but the car does not break down on me. My main complaint is that the stereo does not work anymore, but I would imagine that partially has to do with how old the car is.
