Used Toyota Good Value?

2000 Toyota Avalon XLS 4dr Sedan
Ok first off this isn't my car, it's my fathers, I am in transition to a new car and drive this car to and from school (100 mile commute) This car is reliable and has a near smooth ride but that's all it has going for it. The thing rattles like no other car I've owned. This includes the dash, all 4 doors, seats make squeaky noise, center console rattles when stopped. The one thing I like about it is the stereo is decent but any louder than normal voice volume and the doors rattle insistently. This car rattles more than my old 89' Toyota pickup 4x4. The car (when purchased) had an oil jelling problem and luckily it was a recall and Toyota fixed it no charge. Thought Toyota lasted but not this car.
Dash reminds me of the USS 1701-D Enterprise (Picard's Ship). Stereo is decent.
Make this car less noisy on the inside!!! Toyota is renowned for quality, reliability, and overall lasting cars but this one probably won't even make it past 200,000 miles.
