My vehicle is reliable, trustworthy, and all around a very amazing car.

I have a 2002 Toyota Avalon. It is a wonderful reliable car, which is very convenient in today's society. The car drive excellent on the highway, great gas mileage with many luxury additions. Heated and cooled leather seats with remote adjusting. Remote sunroof with a state of the art stereo system, one of my favorite features might I add. This car is definitely a main attraction fresh from the show room. Wood grain cover across the dashboard and door panels. Aluminum rims, chrome center pieces, grill, outside door trim and light trims. Gets top speed with very little hesitation, gear shift is amazing. Definitely a great car to for a bachelor as well as a marital car. It is actually quite big on the inside of the car, fits 2 over sized individuals in the front seats comfortably, 4 people comfortably in the backseat. Spare tire is in the truck safely guarded as well the CD changer. Spare tire is definitely exceptional. Tape player and auxiliary accessible. Music sound adjustable in many different ways. This car is complete with state of the art airbags system flourish through the entire car. Dashboard has many string features such as gas mileage, oil mileage, tire pressure alert, door alerts, seat belt alerts, motor issue alerts and beautiful neon lights to bright up the night time.

Forever reliable Toyota Avalon.

My car has reached over 280, 000 miles and has had no serious problems. With regular maintenance (which is affordable for this Toyota Avalon), it will last for many years. It is a reliable, safe car. It is a little larger than compact, but it is been great even in the most crowded san francisco bay area cities. I love the seat warmers, the moon roof, and the variety of music playing capability (it has cassette and CD player - plus AUX if you get the right cassette for that). There is a very spacious trunk. It is a spacious 5-seater all around. Also comes with great compartments, cup holders, and wide signal screens.

The space and reliability of the car is outstanding.

I enjoy the size of my car. It has plenty of space not only in the cab but also the trunk. It gets pretty good gas mileage. When I have to do repairs, which is not often because it is a very reliable car, the parts are not expensive and I've been able to do the repairs on my own and I have little mechanical knowledge. I do appreciate the sensors that tell me when my lights go out that way I can keep them changed and working. I have a older model of the Avalon and I definitely recommend it.

Cruising around town in a great, smooth driving white car.

A great purchase, the seats are comfortable but may be cold in winter! But heat and cooling is great and goes throughout the car. Roomy and a lot of space. The brakes work great! The radio can get pretty loud and that is good because I like to listen to my music loud but you have to watch out so you do not blow the speakers, but bass is great. The car runs great and I would consider buying another one but maybe instead of white, maybe black.

Old Toyotas are still great cars!

My vehicle has not given me any problems and the six cylinder engine has turned out to be quite powerful and quick. It has been very reliable and has an luxury interior with options including a jbl sound system with a six disc CD player, am - FM radio and tape deck. It has air conditioning, power steering and brakes, power windows, power sunroof and a power trunk release.

- Thomas W

It also features a trunk button on the dash near the steering wheel.

The 2002 Toyota Avalon is a great car. It has leather seat, is very spacious, and is incredibly comfortable. It runs smoothly. The steering wheel is smooth to turn. The front window is wide so you are able to see without something prohibiting your view. It also comes with a car charger port, two side compartments, a CD player, and a tape player.

- Allison J

Avalon is a safe and comfortable car.

I really like the extra features of heated seats, leather seats. I like the large trunk as it can hold a walker and still have room for groceries. There was very little maintenance until after 180, 00 miles. The pass through from the trunk to the back seat is handy for long objects like rakes and wood from the hardware store.

- Annette H

I think the new Avalon's are smaller and from people who've gotten newer models most say they like the comfort of the older ones better. But it is a good car

It is a very comfortable car with leather seats and a sun roof. It drives nicely. The only thing I have issues with is the check engine light constantly going on and each time the mechanic thinks his diagnosed the problem and fixed it , it doesn't last for more than a very very short while and it's on again very frustrating

Toyota makes well made vehicles that are reliable, dependable and they have fantastic safety ratings.

I bought my Toyota Avalon after having my Honda Civic repossessed. Being without a vehicle for a couple of months with having small children was very challenging. I live the spaciousness of the interior of my vehicle and that is is reliable. Given its age there are some mechanical issues but that is to be expected.

Review of 2002 Toyota Avalon.

This vehicle has been, and continues to be a great car. We do keep our vehicles well maintained and we have had very few repairs on this vehicle. The appearance is still very good - both inside and outside - and it drives and rides like it did when it was new. The next car we purchase will be another Avalon.

- Judy W

Toyota is a little out of style.

My Toyota is a bit out of date. It has an old radio with a cassette and I cannot plug in an AUX cord. It has comfortable seating and it has 2 TVs inside which I can watch movies with if I have the CD's. The car can fit 9 people and it is a big car that is good for road trips as it can fit a lot.

- Isabella L

The Toyota Avalon has leather seats the heat up. It has a sunroof.

No problems still in running condition. I do need a new tape deck or stereo. CD's stuck in the factory stereo. Tires are good. I just installed a new car battery. I also installed new windshield wipers. The black paint on the front of the car is chipping. The car could use a new paint job.

- Samuel W

Toyota keeps on going regardless of its age.

This is a very reliable car. We have very few repairs, just regular maintenance. To say it is comfortable is an understatement. It is a dream to drive and like riding in your favorite recliner! We are not even aware we are driving an older vehicle. It is luxurious and still very stylish.

- Connie S

My car is white, 2002 Toyota Avalon. I love it drives fine.

My car is very reliability, the seats are very comfortable but the check engine light is on and I do not know why. It has the basic features and has a 4 wheel drive. My car is perfect for me and my basic needs. It takes me to and from all the places I need and that is what matters.

- Lauren H

Reliable and comfortable car with a smooth ride and useful features.

It has been extremely reliable even for its age. This car is one of the most comfortable I have ever driven. The ride is very smooth. It has decent tech features without going overboard. It is an lox's which was the top feature for that year. The car feels sturdy when driving.

- Vanessa L

Wide windshield, which helps with visibility.

It rocks, but it is getting old. The car is incredibly comfortable, but it is having more and more problems as it is getting older. The car has been with me since I got my driver's license, so it is incredibly sentimental to me. Go Toyota! These cars rock.

- Chloe J

It is big and roomy - hauls lots.

My Avalon is very comfortable and extremely reliable. It is a beautiful color (desert sand) and has attractive silver and gold trim. It drives like a dream, too, and also gets great mileage. There is nothing about it that I dislike. No complaints.

- Carole R

It is definitely a luxury vehicle.

I like the roomy interior with the fax leather seats. Its handles well and rides smoothly, even for being as old as it is. My only complaint is that it's like 16 years old and I want a newer model.

- Aaron J

Has had a lot of issues, but it's roomy.

My car has had a ton of issues in the last year or so, but that is probably just because it is so old. It doesn't get great gas mileage, but the seats are roomy, so it's pretty good for road trips.

- Nathan M

This is a car that was built to last. We haven't experienced any major recalls, defects or malfunctions. I would highly recommend Toyota to everyone!

I love my Avalon for its style functionality, etc. This car is very reliable and really dependable. It's great quality and very roomy. Our passengers always comment on how roomy the back is.

- Thelma L

The 6 CD changer is jammed.

My Avalon has stood the test of time. It still runs well. I've taken care of my car. It's a 2002 which was purchased used in 2006. It's 2018. I really don't want to part with it.

Luxury Toyota Avalon 2002

Toyota Avalon is very spacious, comfortable leather seats. Runs very well for its 2002 age. Recent issues with the stereo, but as it is original it may need to be replaced soon.

- Leslie G

The Toyota Avalon is a reliable car that requires only minimal upkeep to run well for years.

It is a good and reliable car for it's age. I wish that it got better gas mileage. I also wish that it had an aux port, but that was not standard in older cars.

That it runs great, economically great and is reliable.

It is very reliable and comfortable. It drives well, has a lot of room inside and in the trunk, and is easy.
