Any issues with the 2003 Toyota Avensis?

Any issues with the 2003 Toyota Avensis 2003 1.6? The one I'm looking at has 100,000 miles on the clock (160,000 kilometres).

Hi David,

This Avensis is generally rock solid. The only thing we'd be wary of is the mileage. That seems quite low for one of those of that age. Make sure the condition of the interior backs it up and consider doing a history check on These were often used as taxis remember.

General advice for buying any used car is check that all the switches work and get as detailed a service history as you can for the car.

Hope that helps.
