1997 Toyota Avalon XL 4dr Sedan


Better than average reliability, plenty
of power and room for toting a family
around town or long trips, good resale
value...not going to win a beauty

Some quirks such as noise in front
struts and sun roof and wheel balance
issue from the start...I've learned to
turn up the radio and Toyota replaced
the bad wheel.

Only big surprise repair was the power
steering rack recently

Best Features

Powerful engine, passenger leg room, big trunk...basically all the benefits of a big American family sedan but with better gas mileage, resale value and fewer service visits.

Worst Features

Tighter steering, fold down rear seats, front seats (manual) need more range (up and down, front to back) and get the quirks out (above). Throw in a splash of excitement to exterior design, including wider tires, better wheel design.
