Ultimate Sleeper, with Toyota reliability
This vehicle was the very essence of reliability, ultimately I had to unload it when the head gasket went at 170 K, but I still got a pretty good price for it and the new owner still drives it around. Suspension started to get pretty loose towards the end.
Great Car, powerful 6, independent suspension, excellent handling, Like a 4-door Supra. Ultimate Sleeper!! I had to use it once for an Autocross event because my RX-7 was down, and it won it class (over 2 L stock). The other autocrossers thought it was a Camry and were laughing, but after 6 heats, they were laughing no more! I had found a set of Lexus 5-spoke wheels off of an ES300 and they really set the car off. I Miss this one, the Avalon is just not the same, FWD will never be as good as RWD.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
