The new evaporator core probably still has the nylon porus coating which retains condensate for an extended period. The only easy way to keep this from happening is to leave the windows down in the garage every night to let the condensate from the previous day's A/C operation evaporate and "drift" out of the cabin overnight via convection airflow.
Or you can buy and install an EED from airsept.com.
More info by googling:
Ignore the Ehow hit, its incomplete.

I use regular Ole, Mcguires or Turtle Wax Leather conditioner/cleaner all in one. It seems to work nicely to get out some imbedded dirt and treat the leather. There are other more expensive fancier products but I cannot substantiate them.
#82 of 169 Interior moisture
Dec 18, 2005 (1:17 pm)
I have a 1998 Avalon w/94000 miles. The interior is developing moisture on the interio windows. Tried all settings on the heat/ac system. Does this year have a cabin filter and this could be the problem or some other problem.

New car to you or you have moved to a new locale, say Seattle?
Common complaint of all Toyota/Lexus vehicle or really any vehicle using a climate control designed by NipponDenso, Denso US.
The best and quickest solution is to lower the windows slightly in the garage each and every night to let the cabin dry out. The main problem generally is the level of condensate left on the A/C evaporator after using the A/C, and many new vehicles run the A/C year 'round.
Ignore the ehow "hit"

The car is not a climate control car. This only started to happen in the winter. Does this car have a ac filter that might need replacing could this be the problem? Chicago is very cold car is left out all year round.

It doesn't have to be automatic climate control to exhibit the symptoms described by the EED solution.

#87 of 169 Avalon 2006 Limited driver's seat too firm?
Dec 31, 2005 (2:07 pm)
I was a bit spoiled by the car seat in my 2000 Buick LeSabare Limited. It was very comfortable! That car also had a "bun-warmer" but no cooler. The Avalon has both but the seat is way too firm and after driving it only for about 350 miles, I am feeling the discomfort of the seat. Anyone else have similar experience? I can always use a portable cushion but it gets in the way of the heating/cooling systems. Any ideas?

The "comfort level" of the seats in the LTD is pretty subjective...what one person thinks is comfortable, isn't for the other person.
This topic has been batted around at length...suggest you search the topic using the search box at the top & bottom of each page; believe you'll find many opinions & ideas.
BTW, my LTD seats are perfect (at least for me and my wife).
