Auto climate control /Beware
By nov1853 on
Vehicle
1998 Toyota Avalon XLS 4dr Sedan
Review
I have been quite happy with my XLS after having purchased used with 70k miles. However I was very disappointed with Toyota design with Auto Climate Control. Servo motor on blower system went out due to design flaw admitted to by Toyota in a technical service bulletin which directed dealers to replace entire workings of Auto Climate control system when $35.00 servo motor failed. (Cost me $1000.00)I was forced to replace entire system. Toyota incidentally redesigned entire system for 1999 model years but would not back up 1998 defective system. Shame on you for sticking it to us 1998 owners.
Favorite Features
Comfortable ride, quit and smooth, Classy styling
Suggested Improvements
1998 Climate control system should have been replaced in recall. Problem resulted in no defrost, no heat, no AC, no blower of any kind. Rainstorm with no defrost = NO VISIBILITY!!!Stuck in subZero temps= death by freezing. Ck NHS
