Lots of miles...Running Great

1997 Toyota Avalon XL 4dr Sedan


I liked it so much, I now own the 2001
model as well. The suspension problem
(struts) mentioned in previous reviews
was so common on the '97 that Toyota
had a service memo to all delearships.
My car was repaired (to my surprise)for
no fee in 2000 by a toyota dealer after
some frequent complaining on my part.
That is the extent of my repairs. After
150,000 miles I'm selling the car
almost regretably and would absolutely
reccommend this Avalon to make it to
200,000 miles easy.

Best Features

Interior is larger than any car I've seen in its class. The AC (impt in FL) is outstanding. The ride is OK, but who's really trying to compare this to the Lexus at 10k plus? The engine is more than capable on the Highway.

Worst Features

Toyota's paint has been better in the past. Stereo should have been better from the factory. Trunk opening was widened in the '98.....good move.
