"Always had oil changed each 5000 miles, had the timing belt done every 100,000, and normal tuneups. It does eat up some tires but I change them earlier than needed. Brakes have been done twice since I have owned it new. Great car, have replaced little stuff and interior fan, lights, plastic parts that break with use. biggest problem is the Cd changer stuck and has not worked for years. Good car and at 265,000 rattles a little but I keep up with it. Seats ok and all original carpet and paint. Get it waxed each 3 months and my son uses it to work. I wish I could get another."
"In 2011 we purchased this car from original owner/family member. We wanted the SAFEST car for our teen since the majority of vehicles on our TX roads are trucks. After years of "teen" driving without any problems, I am once again driving the Avalon and I love it. After 15 YEARS-Everything works, quiet smooth ride & still reliable-AMAZING!"
Pros: "A classic! Goes and Goes with only minimal upkeep"
Cons: "Can't think of anything"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"It's stylist, comfortable, reliable and roomy!
I only sell it, because i was impulsive, and ended up buying another car with less miles.
I would gladly buy a new Avalon; but they are currently out of my price range. :("
"Hate to sell this car; but it is 15yrs old, with 200,000 miles!
Extremely comfortable, very roomy, huge trunk and looks great!! Inside and out.
Very stylish, even after all these years.
Have driven it on numerous long distance vacations!
Built to last!"
