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.
Split seating up front, with a fixed center console.
Ease of maintenance.
Lots of legroom.
I think I missed an engine recall.
Oh well, it was 3 years ago.
