Not so reliable
By tom on
1997 Toyota Avalon XLS 4dr Sedan
Owned since new. Many disappointing problems. Very expensive considering the number of amenities. 60k - transmssion leaks. <100k, all steering components had to be replaced. Power steering pump had to be replaced twice. Tire wear is a huge problem! This car wears out tires in 20k miles, even top rated tires.
Outstanding brakes. 1st set lasted 110k miles! Good gas mileage and performance. Strong engine and transmission.
1. This is a joke: cruise cntl light is on ALL the time, even when not engaged. 2. No heated seat option, no heated mirror option, no seat adjust memory, BAD cup holder design. 3. Steering feedback must be better 4. Better reliability
