1997 Toyota Avalon XL 4dr Sedan
Review
Better than average reliability, plenty of power and room for toting a family around town or long trips, good resale value...not going to win a beauty contest. Some quirks such as noise in front struts and sun roof and wheel balance issue from the start...I've learned to turn up the radio and Toyota replaced the bad wheel. Only big surprise repair was the power steering rack recently ($1200)...disappointing.
Favorite Features
Powerful engine, passenger leg room, big trunk...basically all the benefits of a big American family sedan but with better gas mileage, resale value and fewer service visits.
Suggested Improvements
Tighter steering, fold down rear seats, front seats (manual) need more range (up and down, front to back) and get the quirks out (above). Throw in a splash of excitement to exterior design, including wider tires, better wheel design.
