Avensis Oil Advice, Please.

Recommended Posts

I've owned my current Avensis for about 7 years. During that time it has 100% reliable. I'm now on the look out for another one. Current one is '02 1.8 vvti with 120k and I'm looking at a '07 1.8 vvti with 50k on the clock. My current car has always burnt Oil (approx 1litre per 400 miles). No problems as I've used it generally for short journeys. My question is will the '07 car burn Oil as well? It may be an issue now as I am starting a new job soon that will involve much more mileage and don't want to be worrying about Oil levels. Thanks in anticipation.

Shouldn't do. Toyota fixed the VVTi engine Oil consumption issue is mid 2005 so the 2007 should be fine, just ensure the car is & has been serviced every 10,000miles using a good quality 5w30 engine Oil.
