1997 Toyota Avalon XL 4dr Sedan


Bought this car when it had 85,409 miles on it. Have replaced struts, brakes, tires, keep the oil and all fluids changed according to Toyota specs/timings. This has been a great car, so much so I just gave it to my youngest daughter for college and I went out and found another great 97 Avalon XL with leather and sunroof. These cars will go the miracle mile if you do everything on a regular schedule, this is especially true of the timing belt--don't push past the 90K mile interval.

Best Features

Quietness of this car is incredible, even after all these miles, not rattles, shimmy, or shake. Excellent mileage on the highway at 31 miles per gallon combined city and highway is 24 mpg. Reliability is the best I've had in any vehicle I've ever owned. Great car.
