| ||Model||Toyota Avalon |
| ||What things have gone wrong with the car?||* the sound system was a bit weak (nothing that an after-market 4x50W amp plus a 150W sub didn't fix!)* brakes make a distinct 'click' when first engaged after switching from forward and reverse... the dealer can't seem to find anything wrong|
| ||General comments?||We choose this car after looking at Bonnevilles, Luminas and the Camry. The dealer we purchased from also carried Lexus and the Avalon is pinched in the middle between the loaded Camry's and the low-end Lexus. As a result, they were really anxious to sell us this loaded Avalon. The fact that it was a model year 97 in Sept 1997 help!!All the power options still work great. The fit and finish is superb. So-so gas mileage, but about what you'd expect from a bigger V6.Trunk is huge! We added a 4x50W amp and a 12inch sub with 150W amp right behind the rear seat... and we still have plenty of room. The factory sound system was not powerful enough for highway driving with the windows open. No problem now, though ;)Overall, probably the nicest and most reliable car we've owned. No real issues (besides the annoying brake thing) and the car looks great, even after two Wisconsin winters.|
