  • I bought my 99 Avalon XLS for $800 with 214,000 miles and put about 15,000 on it in a year and I love it. I have only replaced the front strut mounts (common issue) and front sway bar links and bushings (parts are $48 all together) amongst regular maintenance items. The interior is all leather (door panels and all) and I always keep it clean because it's so good looking clean. It has a soft ride at all speeds, handles incredibly well for having such a soft ride, accelerates pretty strong (1MZFE V6 non-VVT) and the trans is also strong, still shifting like new at 232,000 miles. For entertainment it has the 7 speaker Harman-Motive system. 2 tweeters, 4 mids and 1 8" package tray mounted woofer and I believe all that is also on a factory amp. I upgraded all that with a JVC touch screen, Cerwin-Vega tweeters (I added two in the back), JBL mids, Audio Pipe crossovers, and a Power Acoustik 15" sub on 3200 watts. All easy to install and the car has well laid out audio placement. Cold AC and hot heat with great MPG. The only downside is you will get really attached to it and you won't be able to come up with a good reason to get a new car. Parts are plentiful and very affordable.

    I bought my 1999 Toyota Avalon Platinum XLS in 2006.
    It had 99000 miles on it and this did not cause me alarm since I have had a Toyota Camry before.
    My Toyota Avalon now has 187,000 miles on it and is still running strong!
    I have had to put routine maintenence items, such as brakes, battery, tires, but other than that it is running like the day I bought it.
    I am looking at trading it off for something newer, not because I need to, just maybe wanting something newer.
    Trouble I am having is when I test drive other vehicles I am comparing it to my Avalon, so far all the "competitors" have lost. Gas mileage is still 24/28 hwy.
    Excellent choice and great car!

  • Incredible car! Soft ride, low maintenance, good mileage. Only complaint - after 13 yrs of a gray 86 Camry and 11 yrs of this silver 99 Avalon, I feel the need for a change. Could be midlife issues. I need something bright and irresponsible. But seriously, GREAT CAR! Fits all sizes of people and luggage. Surprisingly good mileage for its size and comfort and I highly recommend it. That's what makes it hard for me to give up.

    The 1999 Toyota Avalon is a full-size premium sedan that is available with either front bench or bucket seats which allow for a five or six-passenger seating capacity. The Avalon is powered by a 3.0L V6 engine which produces 200 hp and 214 lb-ft of torque. Despite the size of the Avalon, it is rated at an impressive 21 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway.

  • 1996 Avalon
    Virtually unchanged in its second season, the Avalon continued its assault on the American family-sedan market.
    1997 Avalon
    Engine output got a boost to 200 horsepower in ’97, and Avalons displayed a few minor appearance changes. An in-glass rear-window antenna replaced the power mast-type aerial, and heated outside mirrors became standard in the XLS sedan.
    1998 Avalon
    Front-seat-mounted side airbags were made standard in Avalon’s only change for ’98.
    1999 Avalon
    Toyota’s flagship got standard daytime running lights and heated exterior mirrors for ’99. An all-new model would arrive in 2000.
