My fabulous older Toyota Avalon

2003 Toyota Avalon XLS

There's almost never anything wrong with it even though it's an older car. I drive very far for a living and still almost never have problems. I could rant and rave about my car. It's luxurious and had very good maintenance when it was first bought and because of this it works very well. The only thing I've had to replace was the windshield, the brakes and I've had to change the oil but that's it. It's a fabulous car. I've mainly had Toyotas in my life and so has my husband. We recommend Toyotas to everyone and will most likely only continue to buy from Toyota.

03 Avalon XLS still going strong

2003 Toyota Avalon XLS

It's been through a lot and just keeps going. My Avalon is easy to do most of the work myself. It's reliable and fun to drive. I would be lost without my heated seats and power seat adjust. The radio comes with a tape deck and a CD player. There is plenty of legroom in the back seat, even if the front seats and adjusted all the way back. The gas mileage is great on freeway driving, but when city driving, it does go down a noticeable amount. I've only had to do routine maintenance on this car and it's still going strong.

The atmosphere of elegance means you have arrived in status of the moment!

2003 Toyota Avalon XLS

2003 Toyota Avalon XLS is a very dependable midsize car. It handles the roads with class and power steering tightness. The interior is very elegant with wood design dashboard contrasted by off white leather power designed seats. It can comfortably hold up to five people. The trunk has gracious space for traveling bags. It is loaded with power luxuries such as temperature control daily, heated seats, cruise control plus many more features to catch your eye.

My vehicle is a gray 2003 Toyota Avalon.

2003 Toyota Avalon XLS

My vehicle drives very smoothly. I enjoy driving compact cars. My Toyota Avalon has about 3000 miles on it. I recently had steering worked on because the steering wasn't working properly while turning at certain times. My vehicle has not been in any wrecks or fender benders and I have never been pulled over. In general the maintenance of my car has been very good. Oil changes and tune ups have all been performed when they are necessary.

Ultra-reliable vehicle with roomy interior

2003 Toyota Avalon XLS

This is an amazing car! It has 219,000 miles on it and I haven't had any major repairs. I have kept up with basic maintenance (oil changes, flushes, brake pads and rotors, tires, etc.) but this car has been incredibly reliable! It's also really roomy on the inside and has nice interior features for an early 2000's car, like heated seats and a dual temp control system.

There are hidden compartments in the doors for you to put important items.

2003 Toyota Avalon XLS

My car performs nicely, is very reliable, super comfortable, and has amazing features. If you're someone who's very concerned with aesthetic I wouldn't recommend this car because the body of the car isn't very attractive. My car has almost 200,000 miles on it and is still super reliable and runs well.

- Dakota R

The luxury sedan is not only a good running car it's appearance is good looking.

2003 Toyota Avalon XLS

Great cars. It gets good gas mileage, has a fairly powerful engine, handles well, and delivers a smooth ride. Inside, it's upscale and spacious, and it offers a litany of active safety features and gets great safety scores. Great sound system especially compared to Kia.

Absolutely Superb: the best car a girl could as for

2003 Toyota Avalon XLS

I absolutely adore this car. It has almost 300,000 miles and is still just as wonderful as when I first got it. These cars are truly built to last and look stylish while they do. This car is quite large for a four door sedan, and definitely holds up well over the years.

2003 Toyota Avalon xls review.

2003 Toyota Avalon XLS

Drives very good. Handles smoothly. Has power and stops quickly. Great features. Gets excellent gas mileage. No major problems. Has over 124,000 miles and runs like new. Has seat warmers and sunroof. V6 engine with great pick up spread and can accelerate with ease.

- Tom H

It is wide and very comfortable

2003 Toyota Avalon XLS

It is a good car. It is comfortable to go on road trips with. Ac often works very good. It runs very smooth. Although it is a V6 it doesn't waste as much gas. In order for it to waist less gas you should fill up your tank and the gas will last you more time.

- Jay C

Most of all it is the smooth and comfortable ride that it provides.

2003 Toyota Avalon XLS

Our Toyota avalon is comfortable for long trips and short stops around town. We travel up north to minnesota every year and it is the best ride possible for us. My wife and I enjoy everything about this car. And we own it now and got it for a decent price.

2003 Toyota Avalon Review

2003 Toyota Avalon XLS

The Avalon is a luxury car with all the bells and whistles! Smooth ride, heated leather seats, spacious leg room, sunroof, large trunk space. Drives just as nice at higher miles as when purchased new. Toyota is a trusted brand in my eyes! Nice ride!
