Review

Best car we've owned. 20 years and would still take it anywhere. Most ergonomicly comfortable. Now that we're older, a little hard to get out of, but such a comfortable ride. Never had a major repair. Just regular maintenance. That's why we still have it.

Review

I drove a 1997 Avalon for twenty years and never had a problem with it! It was a sad parting, like saying goodbye to an old family friend. It was a comfortable and reliable car and served me well! I can truly say I got my money's worth!

Review

I bought my '97 avalon 7 years ago for a whopping $800 with 150k mi. on it. The previous owner had used synthetic oil since he purchased it new and I followed his his advice. It currently has 255k on the odometer. It has zero leaks, zero throttle delay and pulls as hard as it did as the day I bought it. Now the Avalon may not look like much. And it's not that fast off the line. But from 50 to 80 it will surprise you. Since I live near the beach in florida the paint has taken a beating. However, In 7 years, aside from the regular tires, oil and belts, I've replaced the radiator, water pump and alternator. All together I've spent maybe $1000 on non preventative maintenance. The engine and transmission could be classified as military grade they're so solid.
