135,000 Miles and Won't Part With It!
By HustonAerosFan on


1998 Toyota Avalon XL 4dr Sedan


The best car I have ever owned. There is nothing on the market now that can replace it - especially in the area of looks (Toyota's new offerings - including the new "2006" Avalon - are SOOO ugly!). I have passed 135,000 miles on this vehicle and am hoping for at least 200,000. Very little has gone wrong with this car outside of normal wear and tear and auxillary things like batteries and tires that Toyota has nothing to do with. Significant repairs lately were a new steering rack last month (leaking seals) and a complete brake job last year. Other than that, routine replacements. It will be a very hard and sad day when I trade this guy in!

Best Features

Rock solid reliability, extremely attractive exterior design (unlike 99% of the new cars out there today), roominess, and good ride. Your basic no- nonsense, well built, extremely practical car.

Worst Features

Desperately needs a split folding rear seat (read: trips to Home Depot). Paint job (oyster white) has not been very durable. Might be repainting soon.
