I'm going to buy my first Toyota.

An Avensis 2.0 TD LINEA SOL SDN IC 1998 it has 110.000 miles on the clock and costs 5400 quid.

1. Am I paying to much? It's with an official dealer.

2. How does this year rate with the 1999 or 2000 versions?

3. Should I buy it?

TDS,

To answer your questions;

1. It depends on the condition of the vehicle so I don't know.

2. 1CD-FTV engine, the so called D4-D was introduced from year 2000, and I will certainly go for this. 2C-T engine which was used prior to this was OK but it is a bit out dated.

3. No. I personally think it is expensive.

I bought a '99 Avensis GLS last year with the same amount of miles from a car supermarket. Paid £4200 on it, including two years extended warranty but I think I paid over the odds for it then. £5400 for a high-milage, seven year old car is too expensive.

1998-2000 is the same car, the facelifted VVti/D4Ds were from 2000/1.

The old diesel is pointless - no performance and mediocre economy for a diesel (not much better for mpg than the lean-burn 1.8 petrol)

Expect the usual Avensis faults (leaking rear brake cylinders, weak power steering rack), and you'll have a car easily capable of doing another 110,000 without showing any signs of wear. But you could get a facelifted model for that money, or an '87 Carina E for half the price :)

Is that price euros or STG? I've a 99 2.0TD Luna, I'd look for luna spec as you'll get a few more goodies.. Apart from that I'd say there's a bit of leeway in that price... seems a bit overpriced to me...

Hmmmm you guys have me worried now. The car is in Holland thats where I live. Everything over here is more expensive now the Euro has arrived :censor: the Euro price is 6750 that is about 4750 pounds.

Thats the cheapest I can find in a dealer,I have seen another Avensis with the same milage 1999 model Linea Terra for 7200 euros even more!!??

Damn I risk trying to buy private?

I really need your help because I need a car within the end of the month.So how about this then:-

Toyota Avensis 2.0 D4-D LINEA SOL SDN IC 2001 with 215.000 km on the clock that about erm 140.000 miles. It tells me on the net that the D4-D is a stronger more economical and faster motor.

How far can this engine go without problems?

here is a picture http://data.toyota.nl/photos/23hjzk.jpg it costs 7,850 euro thats about 5500 pounds.

What do you think?

Just shows the difference, quick check on a Irish website here shows a 2001 Avensis average price at 12,300 euros (8,466) and you can add between 1 and 2k for a diesel with average milage.

140k miles is a lot but if the engine has been well serviced it should keep you going for a long while yet. I have heard of taxi drivers getting over 300k out of these engines.

Have you considered importing from the UK ? From this side can save up to 2k euros on his type car.

Hope you get what you want.
