1997 Toyota Avalon XLS 4dr Sedan


Just purchased for my college daughter - 150K miles - $4,250. Such a solid car. Very quiet, extra roomy, powerful V-6. As others have noted, it has suspension issues, sounds like a bucket of bolts on rough roads. Going in for suspension overhaul next week, should be set for another 100,000 miles. Little to no rust. Love the car! My wife and I own an '02 Avalon, so I was very happy to find a family-owned used one for my kid.

Best Features

Build quality, quietness, roominess, engine power and smoothness. Moon roof, stereo. Reliability can't be beat.

Worst Features

Suspension issues. Tepid design, definitely has styling that appeals to grandparents.
