Review of the 1997 Toyota Avalon

  • Info is not yet available.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Toyota reliability, powerful V-6 engine, fit and finish

  • Cons

    Snoozeville, but still more enticing than, say, a Buick LeSabre

  • What's New for 1997

    More power, more torque and added standard features make the Avalon one of the most appealing full-size sedans

257,233 miles and going strong

Vehicle: 1997 Toyota Avalon XL 4dr Sedan

Bought this car when it had 85,409 miles on it. Have replaced struts, brakes, tires, keep the oil and all fluids changed according to Toyota specs/timings. This has been a great car, so much so I just gave it to my youngest daughter for college and I went out and found another great 97 Avalon XL with leather and sunroof. These cars will go the miracle mile if you do everything on a regular schedule, this is especially true of the timing belt--don't push past the 90K mile interval.




Great daily driver

No it's not the prettiest car, nor the funnest to drive, but this Avalon now has 210,000 mi. of hard city/highway miles on it and has never seen a tow truck. I've replaced tires, brakes, belts and oil. The car has the original everything else, including the battery, spark plugs and even the muffler.




Over 200k and still strong

My sister bought the car new in 97 and gave it to me last year. Today the car has a little over 200k. Theres no problem with the car except for the front right suspension which makes noise on bumpy roads (mentioned in other reviews).
