Is 200,000 miles on a car considered high milage anymore? At that milage aren't you looking at repair bills?
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.
I have 285K on my 96 Avalon and is as good as new NO engine or transmission problems. I do take care of the car and do meantance on it. On 5th set of tires
I have a 2004 Toyota Avalon XLS with 215,000 miles. Still runs fine. I do get routine maintenance at Toyota, but nothing major.
