is is high, but a vehicle isn't necessarily done anymore at that mileage- see if you can find maintenance records that show the transmission service, coolant flushes, and oil changes were done at the recommended times. if not, then look elsewhere. If they were, the car can go quite a ways yet.

Not necessarily..... I have 225,000 on mine and still running strong and smooth. It's the 300 M in my profile.

Not in a Toyota anyway. My '98 Avalon has 176K and my '00 Sienna has 236K. Both start instantly and run smooth without a trace of smoke. Both get Pennzoil Ultra and a "premium" filter with changes every 5-6K because of the V6's reputation for sludge build-up.


its not really alot for that engine your avalon has. Those engines last for a long time . Their just like the c/k engines. They never give up.But I would just change the oil mevery 5,000 miles the V6's reputation for sludge build-up.
