Luxury Car without the Luxury price. by Rita on 06/08/2011. Trim: 2004 Toyota Avalon XLS, Owned 7 years.
Pros: I like the luxury of the vehicle, how well it handles on the highway, very quite and comfortable. It looks good also.
Overall review: The Toyota Avalon is a well made vehicle. It appears to be style for Females. There are areas "pockets" in the car for storing things that other cars don't have. It drives very well and is good on gas!

Good investment by Cattman on 08/26/2010. Trim: 2004 Toyota Avalon XLS, Owned 7 years.
Pros: I'm 6'4 and love the ride, comfort and room inside. Bought it new in Oct 03 and have put 120,000 miles on it. It still drives great! I get about 25 to 26 mpg on the highway with regular gas and 28 to 29 with premium. Only problem in all those years was an O2 senser went out.
Overall review: Very good cars for the money!

Not too impressed! by Carpoint fan on 04/30/2004. Trim: 2004 Toyota Avalon XLS, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: The so called Toyota reliability, smooth engine and amenitiesc suked me in.
Cons: Handling is sloppy, engine is a torqueless wonder, transmission is still a 4 speed and not very well behaved, the dash is designed like a early nineties american car, and why does Toyota not use the newer more powerfull 3.3 engine from the minivan and camry. I mean come on, they can charge 34k for this thing so I expect to get the best of everything. I also expect the car to start in the Winter which this thing has had several dealer trips to correct the no-start problem!
Overall review: Not too impressed overall!

The four golf bag trunk by Adam in sunny Florida on 01/24/2004. Trim: 2004 Toyota Avalon XLS, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Peppy, sport car acceleration.Very quiet ride. Steering wheel styling (leather trimmed) sold it for my other half. Amazing tunk space.
Cons: The "Multi-information Display" lights up in a unsettling bright blue. It would have looked much more compatible had it matched the pale yellow-green of the transmission position indicator.
Overall review: I love this car. I don't have enough miles on it to speak about its reliability but expect it to be in keeping with the rest of its qualities. I can easily fit four golf bags in the trunk without sqishing the last one in.

"My hot 2004 XL by An MSN Autos Consumer on 05/11/2011. Trim: 2004 Toyota Avalon XL, Owned 7 years.
Pros: Has always been reliable for me. Always starts. I do maintain it regularly, Good looking car. Mileage is very good on highway driving. Dash is very simple & easy to read..
Cons: Dislike where the gas tank eject button is on the bottom next to the seat. Very very inconvience. In city I thought mileage in city would be better. I bought this car new. After 10K miles was told by dealer I should have a complete brake job. Said it would cost be $1K. I told him forget it. Brought it to my mechanic & he said all you need is front pads. Tires wore out about 15K miles. That was disappointing. I find every time I bring the car back to the dealer they seem to want to change things. Prices are to high so I tell them to bring it down. I bring to my mechanic & he says there is nothing to waht they want to do. I've got to the point that I don't trust them. .
Overall review: I would buy another Avalon & get the extended warranty. Nice ride a little noisey & rattles., STill good looking car & reliable.
