Can't kill it!

by on
Vehicle: 1995 Toyota Avalon

Replaced an older Camry with this car for it's reliability and rear seat legroom. I've had this car for 5 years/75K miles and it's 19 years old now. 216K miles on the clock. I've owned other cars that if you looked at them the wrong way they would break down. Not this one! I do all the basic maintenance myself. Running 100% gas I've done as good as 26mpg combined, and 29mpg hwy. Even on ethanol gas, I get 22mpg combined.

Solid car

I love this car. Got it in 2008 with about 80 K miles and it still runs strong even at 170 K miles. The only change I made was a busted flex pipe in 2012. Interior is sketchy but large enough to fit 5 average sized adults. Trunk space is superb. Performance is good for a older car like this, acceleration is great with PWR ETC engaged and overdrive off. Maneuverability is surprisingly active even at highway speeds. And this car can keep up with those low end luxury sedans which try to embarass you like Mercedes C class 250, BMW 5.

410k and still running

Still running great. Getting ready to change the timing belt and maybe water pump, if needed. I am pushing for 500k by end of 2013. I drive about 50k/year.

I just purchased a 1996 Toyota Avalon with only 30,000 miles. There were no maintenance records and the lady I bought it from was old and had no idea what he late husband had done service-wise with it...

I changed my avalon 1996 XLS battery and the stereo anti-theft system turn on and i can't find my manual. I know my code but don't know where to start and key to press to show up the enter code prompt...

1996 Toyota Avalon has been an excellent car for 17 years with 324,000 miles on it. Love it....
