1998 Toyota Avalon
|Driving, ride, acceleration, quietness||Gas mileage especially on highway travel|
|Extremely comfortable seats, good support||Trip computer does not function as described in manual, lousy gas mileage|
|Back seat room & adjustable seats||Navigation system has incorrect info|
|Steering and handling are excellent||I would rather the gears stick be on steering wheel to allow more room|
|Engine and transmission are accurately coordinated||Cannot belive toyota put a navigation system this poor into such a good car.|
|The overall ride: it is very smooth||Trunk cargo net. not available on new car, needs to be added|
|Front wipers really clean windshield well, they fit to window||Drivers seat does not automatically go back when open doors|
|Vehicle interior is classic in design like a true luxury car.||Speedometer markings insufficiently visible: safety issue|
|I love the smoothness in acceleration||Transmission lags after engine spinning down/accelerating|
|Very little maintenance required||I often hit my knee when entering the car|
