This car just wont die!
By davidvnyc on
1998 Toyota Avalon XLS 4dr Sedan
I purchased my 98 Avalon XLS in 2003 with 150,000 miles on it.
At about 180k miles I changed the front two 02 sensors.
At 220k miles I changed the timing belt (first time), water pump, struts and ball joints.
Other than these itemís Iíve only had to do standard fluid changes, tires and brakes.
About 2 years ago, I came too close to a guard rail and scraped the right side of the car.
Because the car had 340k miles on it at the time, I chose not to spend the 600 to repair the damage.
The car now just broke though 400k and while it doesnít look as good as when I bought it, it still runs perfectly and zero operational issues.
I have my eye on a new car, but my wife will not let me pull t
Reliability, roominess, gas mileage, acceleration.
Front seats could be a little deeper.
Road noise is a little higher than other cars in it's class.
It's not the best looking car.
