'96 Avalon, nice but boring
By qwalls on


1996 Toyota Avalon XL 4dr Sedan


I bought the car for my wife in '99
with 36k miles. It now has 168k
miles. The car was flawless until 150k
miles when it needed a new power
steering pump and rack to the tune of
$1700. It's now my "bad weather" car
since my wife got a 2004 Sienna. The
car has a lot of room, and is
reasonably comfortable. Performance
and gas mileage are good for the size.
Handling is adequate for the type of
car it is, but nothing to get excited
about. I tend to prefer Hondas while
my wife prefers Toyotas, but both are
great cars.

Best Features

Interior space, reliability, gas mileage, large trunk, smooth ride

Worst Features

rear cup holders and vents, better handling, more excitement. A large family car doesn't have to be boring.
