"Totally amazing vehicle"

Dependable, good mileage, comfortable
Boring styling
I'm the second owner, we purchased it about 11 years ago with just over 106k miles. I've owned several cars but none as dependable as this one. I'm trained as a mechanic and the parts used in this car are of really good quality and it's amazingly easy to work on. Jobs that take days on other vehicles take minutes on this car. Most of the engine bolts are the same size (10 mil). It has great power, gas mileage, space, and everything is made out of good materials made to last (the steering wheel won't wear off in your hands like a new Hyundai). I've replaced two timing belts, two ignition coils, and basic parts. I'm not sure if we'll ever need another car.Read less

"Dependable, comfortable, handles great, good mila"

Dependable, comfortable, handling, decent mileage
A little rust starting
I replaced my 2 year-old Nissan with this 17 year old car 2 years ago & it handles just as well, just as comfortable & alot more room, & saved a ton on car insurance! Love it!

"This is one of the best traveling cars made."

Reliable power, and comfortable.
bad exhaust, bad rear shocks.
This is one of the best cars that I have ever owned because it has great reliability at 190,000 miles and only has a little rusted catalytic converter including some bad rear shocks because of a really hard bump that broke some stuff. Other than that, it is still the best car EVER. I recommend to buy it because they are cheap but good.

"Still a great car"

Comfortable ride, solid engine, easy to work on
Rear axle low to ground, leak from windshield
1999 Avalon Brought new. Has 134 K so far. Very few problems over the years. I have replaced the radio (failed in 2015) Replaced FR and Rear Springs/ Struts, Carpet, new paint job, (2015) and I just replaced all the interior molding this weekend(12 /24 /17), None of the items failed above just personal preferences. The car runs and looks like it rolled off the show floor yesterday. I do all my own maintenance and I cannot believe how easy this car is to work on.
