"The absolute best 30K I ever spent on a vehicle. Part of the family. At 135K plus will never, ever sell it. You could not ask for better value. And you have to ask, "Where have Ford and GM been all these years?"
Ten years young and getting better each year."
"Lots of room, comfortable ride (even on long trips, lots of extra's, 29 mpg on the highway, and no repairs since I bought it in 2005. My only two complaints are a cheap plastic front face and how low to the ground the '98 sits. I plan on driving this one another 6 years at least."
"I purchased this car new in 1999 and have since put approximatley 88,000 miles on it. It is an excellent performing car with good gas mileage, plenty of interior space, comfortable ride and very reliable. It has never broken down in part because of its quality and the fact that I maintained it. Would purchase another one."
"Car has performed near flawlessly. Only disappointment is in the car's handling in strong cross winds on hwy... We feel blown around (car weight? aerodynamics?). Not an ultrasharp flashy car, but well done."
"Everyone in my family owns a Toyota...that's 7 vehicles!! We love them!! They are durable and very reliable! Unfortunately, my Avalon got hit on Thanksgiving and may possibly be totaled. It's been a great car and have had numerous people want to buy it right off me!"
"Purchased this car new in 1998, put over 40,000 miles on it in the 10+ years since. Have never had any trouble with it. I would now buy a new one, but afraid it would never be as good as this old one."
"I love this car! I purchased my car in 2001 with 124,000 miles on it and now I have reached the 250,000 mark. This car is very reliable, the only repair I have made is a new O2 sensor. I keep up with regular maintence and this car still runs like new. The leather seats still look like new! I take this car on long trips between OKC and ATL all the time and the gas mileage is great. I can get about 500 miles on one tank of gas. I love this car!"
