Will all be good. Some of the diesels have head gasket issues so worth checking out although many were caught by Toyota under warranty.

It will be a T25 model if 2008.

Toyota Avensis T27 Tourer Project

Topped 3000 completely reliable miles tonight since I bought the car at auction . MPG shown is over the 650 miles of this holiday over the last 3 1/2 days.



The fuel remaining gauge is after 342 miles since filling up with £56 of unleaded. Not bad at all for a 1.6 VVTi Valvematic petrol

That sounds like an ideal age, model and engine/spec for the car.

Would have everything you need

Will also be bombproof reliable and no timing belt either as will be the 1.8 VVTi Valvematic in that car.

I have a 1.8 Valvematic in our 62 plate Avensis, it's a peach of an engine; really smooth, torquey for an NA petrol, good economy for the size of vehicle, and no cambelt to worry on.
