2007 Toyota Avalon XLS 4 Door Sedan Blue; ONLY 92,069k miles as of today! (10/26/21)
The odometer has not been turned back, I only average 5,600k a year. (Maintenance and repair receipts verify this truth.) More on mileage below.
Front Wheel Drive; automatic. It gets impressive gas mileage for a full size car; you’ll have to look up those specifics.
Toyota called this shade “Indigo Ink Pearl”.
It has a sun or moon roof (not really sure what the difference is…), heated front passenger seats, telescopic wheel, etc.
It has a 6 CD player but it’s giving error messages; have not had it checked. Radio works so I don’t care.
It has a cassette player but I never used it.
Here is a complete and comprehensive list about this car’s needs, repairs and maintenance status (per my receipts):
7/7/21 Discount Tires - 1 New tire and 2 New Wiper Blades
Air pressure sensor gauge not working but I just stop by Discount Tires every 4-6 months to have them check and fill.
1/25/21 Jiffy Lube - Oil change - Mileage then was 90,338 Mileage as of today (Sat 10/23/21) is 92,038.
(Changed it about every 5k.)
Drivers A/C works at times but mostly not; passenger side works most of the time, back A/C works but not as strongly.
10/2/19 Toyota Dealership said its low on freon due to a leak and would cost $246.37 to repair; I declined that recommendation as well as the headlight restoration service and the front drive axle shaft C.V. Boot, and instead, on
10/8/19 spent $1,307.46 on a new coil pack (#5), spark plugs, (Iridium), and radiator assembly. Mileage was 86,954k.
11/3/20 spent $879.52 on: Engine Water Pump, Serpentine Belt, Antifreeze - Pink, Steering Rack Boot Kit (Includes Adjust toe-in) Mileage was 89,705k.
Breaks just started to make noise, but it is infrequent; replaced them December 2012 and I only average 5,600 a year. (I bought it Dec. 2011 at Car Max and per their paperwork it had 35,913k at that time; so at a guess it had around or a little over 40k miles when breaks done, but I tossed that receipt once the warranty ran out.)
As of today Tuesday 10/26/2021 it has 92,069 miles; see dash photo.
The driver’s window also just began to make a squeaking noise when putting up, but it too is infrequent and the window still goes up and down without issue. (A quick search said to use WD40 or some other specific silicone spray.)
The driver’s mirror has a yellow (pollen) coating and fingerprints which I just noticed when getting it cleaned for sale. It didn’t come off in car wash so I have no idea what that’s about. (See photo)
It needs a paint job. (See photos, roof is the worst.)
There is a net for the trunk that you can use to set things in so they don’t roll around; but the piece on the R side that it attaches to, came out. I have that piece I just never cared about seeing how to fix it or paying someone to.
It has leather seats; front seats are in great shape for its age! (See photos)
Backseat is VERY worn, but three dogs will do that…the dashboard cover has pieces missing on passenger side because I used to keep my smallest dog in a plastic tote that I put tightly against it so that it wouldn’t rock while driving, and I didn’t realize it would damage it, until it happened. (See photos)
My big puppy tore the leather on the center console lid and there are scratches in backseat, but no giant tears like the console lid. (See photos) However, they got groomed every month so it does NOT smell like a kennel. Speaking of smells, I am a non-smoker.
I was able to put the back rug mats in my washer so they look great; but the front ones are too big and I have a bad shoulder so I couldn’t scrub them, but I’m sure they can be made cleaner by someone who can.
I have 2 keys and 2 key fobs; however, the driver’s door has to be manually unlocked; never had it checked to see why.
I’ve had no accidents or crashes, and if I recall the Car Fax correctly, it had none when owned by a city or county office prior; and, per either that Car Fax report or Car Max, it was never a flood vehicle. (I would never buy one that is.)
I have its owner's manual.
It has a clean title.
This is an AS IS sale. There are no returns and no refunds; and there is also no warranty whatsoever given or implied.
Kelley Blue Book for private sale on this car using its VIN, and rating it in fair condition, (high end) was $8,350. (I copied and pasted definition at the end of this ad.)
Price is $8,000* due to its really low mileage, as well as the fact that only 5k and 2k miles have been put on (respectively) since the $2,200 spent on the aforementioned repairs; and overall, it’s been a really great car! E.g., if you need to move stuff, it’s backseat and trunk ARE HUGE! (See photos) I’ve never had a non-SUV be so helpful before in this capacity.
The extra $350 that KBB says I can get is about the cost of the A/C repair and headlight restoration service. (I’m not saying this is all that it needs; I am saying that I’ve told you everything I know that it needs. I’ve never had a car dealership be as honest with me about a used car’s status as I am being in this ad; which is why I am being honest. Matthew 7:12.)
*Unless there is a bidding war, then it will go up accordingly.
CASH ONLY that must be withdrawn at a bank at the time of purchase.
And just as I have been honest in this ad about everything that I know about my car, I will not lie about what you pay me so that you can pay less sales tax, so don’t ask. If you have any other questions, please ask. ??
Call or text 702-610-1967. It is located in Round Rock.
To test drive it you MUST provide a current valid driver’s license and insurance card. I will be calling your auto insurer to confirm that your policy is valid, has FULL coverage, and is in effect BEFORE letting anyone test drive it.
Kelley Blue Book assesses a used vehicle’s condition as fair if its tires need replacement, it has any rust (which must be repairable to be classified in fair condition), it possesses some defects in the engine or other mechanical systems, or any visual flaws (in the paint job or the interior). Any imperfections or defects must be serviceable or repairable, and, according to Kelley Blue Book, the car must be “in reasonable running condition.”
