1997 Toyota Avalon XL 4dr Sedan
This model is known to have power steering and front end rattle problems, but if you can get past that, it's a great car to own. Rear seat is quite roomy for adults. This car gets you full-sized car features with the quality of a Japanese made car. The 200 HP 3.3l engine has plenty of power. The rear suspension is a bit flat with a full load, though.
Engine power, overall comfort, excellent brakes, Toyota quality, best price for a Jap-made full-sized sedan, rear leg room, good radio.
Cig lighter socket should be powered all the time, alarm system does strange things with door locks, could get better gas mileage (I get 20/city).
