Hope Toyota fixed flaws in recent models

1999 Toyota Avalon Sedan XLS 4dr Sedan

Review

Overall a pleasent car. Looking for a mechanically quite reliable midsize car. Very comfortable for long trips. 1. Leaky trunk-spot welding at the factory in the trunk area is the culprit. Fixed the wheel well area water leak, but still water collects in the left (under the tool container). 2. Front rattle relates to bad shocks and mounts. I will change them summer. Rear stabilizer bar link is making noise as well, needed to be changed. 3. Exhaust pipe on the front (flex pipe) is designed too low & combined with bad shocks on the front caused repair. 4. Cheap headlight. Cheap clear plastic. Wheel well s/b larger to take larger tires. I do feel tire width s/b 215.

Best Car I've Ever Owned!!

Review

Purchased used with 49000 miles, I've had no problems except a bad O-2 sensor. Wonderful ride, exceptional interior comfort, and a great sound system. My model is the Platinum Edition that came with a few extras including perforated leather seats,custom mats, and custom wheels. Looks better than most newer versions and a whole lot better than the current model. Reeks of quality.

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 car

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.

Simply the best

Review

Purchased new in 1999, this car has been totally reliable. Have over 100,000 miles and uses no oil and engine is quiet. Had to replace the front struts at 70,000 (a common problem with Avalons-$600). Repaced front brake pads at 80,000, rear still good. Amazing. Easy to drive, quiet, roomy, and lots of power. Make sure you replace the timing belt at 90000 and car should run well for a long time. This is our fourth Toyota and one of the best.

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.

This sedan is excellent to drive and take passengers around in. The features are great and it is quite inside. Leather & Heat seats are nice features during the winter.

Toyota Avalon 1999 XLS

Review

This vehicle has been my best auto purchase to date considering I paid $15900 in the summer of 2002 with approximately 48000 miles after it came off a lease. It is very roomy and luxurious plus it gets decent gas mileage in Southern California traffic @ 23 mpg! On the freeway with no a/c it gets 29 mpg. The construction is very sturdy and it has only required normal replacement of 4 tires, battery,platinum spark plugs and brake pads. The only unusual replacement item was the coil pack which I installed myself becuse the dealer cost was outrageous. I'd recommend buying the Haynes repair manual to all!

Purchased new. Now has 110,000 miles and has had no problems whatsoever. The only mechanical repair has been the replacement of an O-2 sensor which the dealer replaced free with the unit 30,000 mile out of warranty. Absolutely great vehicle
