1997 Toyota Avalon XLS 4dr Sedan


I bought this car with 30K miles and now have 220K on it. I also had a steering column leak on this car and my '98 Sienna... dealers wanted to replace column I used a steering fluid with a sealer and never had a problem since. Interior noise is a problem and plastic interior trim pieces coming loose... but those are mostly cosmetic. I will give this car to my son for college and keep for a few more years.

Best Features

Powerful car with good handling. I have a 40 mi 1-way highway commute and this car has saved my life 2X with good handling, good pickup and good visibility. I also like the roomier interior, rear leg room & larger trunk. I've it up with as much as a pickup can carry (including a moose head).

Worst Features

Too many issues with plastic trim coming loose.
