"this car looks and drives like a brand new car. It is garaged all winter since I spend winters in the South. I drive it around town in the Summer months and it is very well cared for. I feel it is probably rated as high as any used car can be rated.."

Pros: "See above"

Cons: "City Mileage and handling - it handles just OK"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"I've owned my 2003 Avalon XL for almost 3 years now, and it's been invariably reliable. We've had 3 Avalon and 2 Camry in the family. The Avalon has a quiet, smooth drive, powerful and responsive engine you wouldn't expect in this category of family sedans, very comfortable seating, JBL sound system is the best sounding stock system I have ever heard. Runs on unleaded normal gasoline but runs best on Premium. Real mileage of about 27 mpg hwy, 17 city. Still, a great value. At 103,000 miles I am having to replace some $100 sensors but otherwise just oil and normal maintenance. Wish it had better around town mileage. Freeway mileage is great."

Pros: "Price, luxurious, Sound System, Extremely Quiet."

Cons: "Sensors, Suspension noise, Ventalation system nois"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 6

"For the price we paid the ride, quietness and handling seems like a more expensive car that I've tried. Maybe not like a 500S Mercedes but certainly like a 300 or 350 Lexus as well as Acura and Infinity. It is not however aging gracefully. Sensors, Suspension knocking, Starter etc. This car is dollaring me to death. And the frustration of the stability control being turned off every time it has some type of issue, just to get your attention is frustrating and childish. Shortly after the warrantee expired the ventilation system started, on a gradually increasing basis, to have this groaning noise in the dash board like it is struggling unsuccessfully to open a ventilation door, when the A/C is on. There is also a squealing noise when it gets cold and the heater is warmed up."
