Avalon worth a look
By TXToyota on


1996 Toyota Avalon XL 4dr Sedan


This is the first Toyota I've ever
owned. I've been very satisfied with
the reliablilty and performance of the
Avalon. I'd buy another if the
following were taken care of. The
distributor/dealer network needs
reworking.The distributor network adds
after market accessories. The result is
the 2 sticker system. The dealer
network is substandard. In every case,
they've produced substandard or
incomplete at dealer prices.
In short, the car was purchased based
on Consumer Reports testing. They were
right on. You can drive it with just
changing oil, air filters, and timing
belts and probably drive for 200,000+

Best Features

Room, V6 engine has get up, fuel economy - have consistently received 30+ mpg on the highway, trunk space is cavernous.

Worst Features

Air leaks (taken care of with kits), plastic around console is cheap compared to high quality on dash.
