Yes. I would not worry about it. Allot of these newer Japanese aluminium engines start to get really noisy around 50,000 miles but it seems to be concistient. They're not quiet like American steel engines but they seem to run just fine... I wouldn't worry about it. A family member of mine has an 07 Avalon with 210,000 miles on it -- The engine sounds like a marble box when its hot but the mechanics say its one of the best running engines they've heard with that many miles on it.

ya just wanted to correct it.
