Review of the 1998 Toyota Avalon

  • Info is not yet available.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    One of the best full-size cars on the market. Stylish, reliable, and surprisingly roomy, this thing has a back seat like Jaguar XJ8 Vanden Plas.

  • Cons

    Invisible in a crowd. Dashboard plastics are too shiny for a car this nice.

  • What's New for 1998

    The Avalon gets side-impact airbags, new headlights and taillamps, a new grille, a new trunk lid and pre-tensioner seatbelts with force limiters.

Smokin' engine... literally

by on
Vehicle: 1998 Toyota Avalon XL 4dr Sedan

I bought this Avalon having owned another 1st generation Avalon. Didn't figure I'd need to have a PPI, but I should have gotten one. Turns out the engine was a smoker. Despite replacing the valve seals and spark plugs, it continued to smoke. Quickly re-sold it.
