Here is AutoPacifics 2002 Vehicle satisfaction Scores (need ACROBAT to read)Avalon tied with DeVille - read on... http://www.autopacific.com/pdf/2002_VSS_Booklet.pdf
Now how about a good word from AUTO.COM from 5/14/2002 - from Orlando Sentinel - "The modest Avalon still an engineering coup for Toyota" http://www.auto.com/reviews/aval14_20020514.htm
After a slow start this vehicle is finding much appeal. Not difficult to spot them on the road either. They are everywhere. Still see it as a wise buy. If the vehicle rates this high as years go by, the resale should hold up too.
p.s. - I was the guy that first posted the Toyota PRONARD photos of the Japanese model that is shipped from US. w/ the GPS and upscale gauges sheck it out - http://www.infolanka.com/org/ramadbk/BN2A.html
Let me know your thought of the ratings.
Front and rear seal was one them not to mention power steering pump, rack and pinion ($2k), power window motor, 2 antennas, side mirror, boot, broken strut and on and on. My folks are in there late 60's and never beat the car. We have owned Toyota's since 1980 and this is the first piece of junk we have had. Grand total out of pocket has been $7,000. I attribute this to first year production and made outside of Japan.
I have a 2000 Nissan Maxima which has been perfect (62K miles). The next generation Maxima will be similar in size to the Avalon and will be built in U.S. for the first time. Here is a spy photo that will give you an idea of its size, the front and rear is covered up.
