Review

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.


Favorite Features

I use the cruise control at 26 mph in subdivisions to make sure I don't get arrested for speeding.

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....

Very dependable. Attractive smooth exterior lines.

Review

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.


Favorite Features

mileage, bench seat, true 5 passenger, front and back room best in industry, trunk capacity, get up and go

Review

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.
