1997 Toyota Avalon XL 4dr Sedan


This car ain't half bad. I mean if you
squint at it, it could look like a
couple other cars, it's cousin, Lexus LS
400, or an older benz E class. It's got
heart when you need to pass up folks on
the highway. I've had the seats pulled
all the way to the back and I was still
able to sit in the back seat with no
problems and had room to spare. The
trunk is roomy also. Now for the bad
stuff.....struts. I sound like an old
bus going over heavy bumps. Now the car
isn't bouncing, but I'm sure it will be
soon. The alternator gave out and the
calipers in the back click. Yeah, the
car is a little boring to look at, but
it's nice on insurance, cause no one
really wants to steal it.

Best Features

Space!!! interior and trunk. You could fit 2 bodies back there and still have a table to play canasta on! Passing ability...the car definitely has heart.

Worst Features

The stereo...like watered down koolaid - it's weak.
