1997 Toyota Avalon Sedan XLS 4dr Sedan


Review

Great vehicle for comfort, power and economy. Performs well in mountains without downshifting on upgrades. Drives like a sportscar with flat, sure tracking and cornering. Maintenance is negligible and at 132,000 it still does not use any oil but has a very, very minor oil drip (probably from a valve cover gasket).


Favorite Features

Power seat cushion position can be changed to take pressure off of your butt or off your legs, whichever is getting uncomfortable. Sound system is very good and adds to driving pleasure. Auto a/c control is +


Suggested Improvements

1. Reconfigure the cruise control so it does not have to be reset after stopping at light or sign. 2. Upgrade brake rotors so they will remain true for their life.
