1999 Toyota Avalon Sedan XLS 4dr Sedan


Review

Great and reliable vehicle. I drive 40k miles per year and only mechanical issue was to replace a starter once. I expect to get another 150k miles. One negative is I have had to replace the struts twice . I wish I had seen this page years ago as I had front noise for years that turned out to be the front strut holder that I finally had diagnosed and replace. Also the only safety issue is that the vehicle does not require you to put it in park first before you remove the key so that the vehicle could roll if you forget to put it in the park position.


Best Features

Great Ride. Plenty of room.

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.


Best Features

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

Review

Bought when 9 months old with 13,000 miles. Now have 118,000 and runs like new. 25 mpg commuting, 31 hwy. Replaced struts at 75,000, front brakes 75,000 and front brakes 115,000. That's the only maintenance besides timing belt at 90,000. I cannot get excited about paying $35+ for a new car that isn't any better than this. Hope to see over 200,000+ before I would consider changing.


Best Features

Sound system, special rims, looks.


Worst Features

Blue tooth and garage door opener. No such thing in '99, technology has changed rapidly.

Review

This 99 Toyota Avalon has been a joy to own. I purchased it with 29,000 miles. In the 1 1/2 years that I have owned this vehicle I have experienced a wonderful ride, no problems and great to handle. I am very satisfied with my Toyota.
