1997 Toyota Avalon XLS 4dr Sedan


The Avalon is a great car when price,
build quality, features, and size are
key points.

The Avalon boasts a spacious interior
(especially rear) has a large trunk
without looking bulky from the exterior.

It is a great highway cruiser with
plenty of power while getting great gas
mileage. The interior is excellent with
awesome materials and great placement
of all instruments etc.

Best of all for some reason its second
hand value seems to be on par of that
of the Camry or other comparable autos
while it is in fact a far superior car.

Best Features

My favourite features of the Avalon are first its looks. Secondly I love the features, its premium stereo/cd changer, sunroof heated leather seats etc. And finally, I love the fact that I get Toyota quality in a car this great for such an awesome price.

Worst Features

I think the only improvement I would make to this car is the suspension/handling. The suspension on the Avalon is a little too soft for me and there is not as much feel through the steering as I would like. The only other point is that the rear seat does not fold down.
