The timing chain need not replaced at specific intervals like a timing belt. Just keep up with your regular oil changes and it should last the life of the car. The only time you replace it, is if it stretches too much or fails.

Timing chain replacement in a 2007 Avalon might be the same as a Lexus 2005 Lexus states 90,000 miles or 10 years whichever is earlier and both of these have an interference engine which means if it breaks while you use it it's more than $2000 maybe $3000 to repair it or even more the cost of repair depending where you are is around $1000
