'96 Avalon, nice but boring

1996 Toyota Avalon XL 4dr Sedan
Review
I bought the car for my wife in '99 with 36k miles. It now has 168k miles. The car was flawless until 150k miles when it needed a new power steering pump and rack to the tune of $1700. It's now my "bad weather" car since my wife got a 2004 Sienna. The car has a lot of room, and is reasonably comfortable. Performance and gas mileage are good for the size. Handling is adequate for the type of car it is, but nothing to get excited about. I tend to prefer Hondas while my wife prefers Toyotas, but both are great cars.
Favorite Features
Interior space, reliability, gas mileage, large trunk, smooth ride
Suggested Improvements
rear cup holders and vents, better handling, more excitement. A large family car doesn't have to be boring.
