Auto Climate Control - Beware!!!!
By mfoster on

Vehicle

1998 Toyota Avalon XLS 4dr Sedan

Review

As others in this forum, burned by auto climate control to the tune of $1,050. No choice but to replace, as the car is not realistically driveable without the a/c, heating, defrost systems working. I guess several people have to die before anything is recalled. Front strut noise also as others report. Catalytic converter went out and one dealer wrongly diagnosed as a broken ring, needing a $5,000 repair. Second dealer correctly diagnosed and repaired under original powertrain warrenty. Steering wheel cover has peeled off. If you are looking to buy, I would insist the seller correct these issues first. Car is roomy and will get up & go.

Best Features

Wind noise is amazingly low when sunroof is open. Big back seat with head room for 6 ft + adults. Rides smooth at 80 mph on interstate. Big trunk.

Worst Features

See above. Better cupholders. Auto door locking can be annoying.
