Review of the 1999 Toyota Avalon

  • Info is not yet available.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    It's Toyota's version of a Buick LeSabre but with front-wheel drive, improved fuel efficiency, and better build quality.

  • Cons

    A lack of interior room and out-of-date styling.

  • What's New for 1999

    After a body makeover and safety improvements (side airbags) last year, the Avalon heads into '99 with only minor updates. Daytime running lights with auto-off color-keyed foglamp covers and dual heated color-keyed power mirrors are new this year. A new three-in-one ETR/cassette/CD sound system is optional on the XL model and Lunar Mist Metallic replaces Golden Sand Metallic.

Great car; no trouble except for a dead battery after 8 years of ownership and a failed starter after 6 years of ownership.

Roomy toyota sedan

I'm 6'7", needed lots of head and leg room, and got it the Avalon. It has all the get up and go I ever needed. Now that it's broken in at 140,000 miles, it gets 30 mpg on the highway; what a nice surprise. Maintenance costs have been half of our other vehicle, a 2003 Chrysler T&C.

PRO: We have had it since 1999 and purchased it used. We have had no problems. We traveled cross the US twice and never had a single need other than gas and oil changes. Great car. CON: cup holder in bad location....




Great mileage for a big

Great car except for the springs and struts. At 25k miles the ride started to become very hard. Felt every bump. Complained to dealer and toyota. Their solution was too much air in tires. This while under warranty. Having springs and struts replaced at 55k miles. This should solve problem. Toyota will not be my choice to do the work. Taking to independent garage. Really believe the spring problem was known and ignored by toyota, since it only affected ride comfort, not handling. Also bought 2004 Avalon XL and the ride quality between the two is laughable. 2004 rides on air, 1999 inspects all defects in the road.




Couldn't be more happy

A very nice vehicle. Outside of normal maintenence it has never needed a thing. I would recommend an Avalon for anyone who likes a luxurious ride, great performance, and superior reliability.




Should have stayed with honda

Vehicle: 1999 Toyota Avalon XL 4dr Sedan

Very disapointed with the value for the dollars spent. Have had numerous trips to dealer for faulty airbag light, driver window failing several times and dealer unable to diagnose, suggested fix was to replace motor in door with no guarantee that this was the true problem, now right rear window won't work, struts are bad, door molding fell off, side molding came loose, trunk flooded from rain, cost $200 to replace gasket at dealer, heated seats work poorly, wonderfully riding car but not worth the money, would not buy another Toyota.
