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 item’s I’ve 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.

Best Features

Reliability, roominess, gas mileage, acceleration.

Worst Features

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.
