Nice car spoiled by junk suspension
By PMOT on
Vehicle
1997 Toyota Avalon XLS 4dr Sedan
Review
Nice, but not exciting, car with cheap clunky suspension. I didn't expect sporting suspension, but rather, a nice quiet ride. But every bump brings a symphony of clunks and rattles from the front and rear suspension. Unacceptable in a car in this class (Hyundai Sonata does a better job). Great mileage with high test in the tank (30mpg @ 75-80 on the Mass Pike). Reasonable performance. The 3 disk CD changer gets "tired" after several hours of play. Looks like most of the other homely, expensive Japanese sedans (except for Nissan now). Should have kept looking for a Maxima SE! You should too!
Favorite Features
Acres of space, great mileage for the size.
Suggested Improvements
Suspension needs development (they got it right in the ES300, why not the Avalon, pretty much the same car). Needs a folding rear seat. And some pizazz....
