Avalon: 133k of Reliability & Value
By Isoka on


1996 Toyota Avalon XL 4dr Sedan


I've driven my Avalon for six years
after buying it used, driving on a
combination of high speed freeway and
beat up lousy DC streets. The car is
bulletproof. No mechanical problems at
133,000 miles. Never replaced timing
belt. People get in the car, cross
their legs in the back seat, and
ask, "what is this car??" Used two
different Toyota dealers over this
time, but neither was worth a damn.
Luckily the cars don't break, so you
don't have to see them much.

Best Features

Reliability. Great family car. Great value, no need to pay for Lexus until you feel like paying for even more fun and performance. Smart match of gearing to 3.0 V6 means great punchy acceleration and good fuel economy. Huge interior and trunk.

Worst Features

Wind noise is a bit excessive for what is otherwise near luxury car. Not a tight suspension, this is really a cloud car with reliability that kicks butt on US cloud cars. Exterior paint may be a bit soft.
