1997 Toyota Avalon XLS 4dr Sedan


Few mechanical problems until recently. Within last year replaced rear wheel bearings, engine gasket, & alternator. Marginal paint job as it started peeling from around rear view mirrors at <80K miles. Strut noise has been there from day 1 off the lot (dealer made excuses too). Doors sagged quite early on, but work okay. Door remotes still work (!) although the buttons are about shot.

Best Features

Wonderful interior room. Very comfy. Huge trunk. Decent gas mileage for its class. Leather seats still look good.

Worst Features

Paint quality. Strut quality. Don't include tan flooring with tan seats (can you say dirt?).
