I’m doing the unthinkable. I’ve not been without one of these for about 6 years now, but I’ve really got to cut down on the amount of mouths I feed.

Toyota Avensis SR 2.0
More handsome saloon model
Uber reliable 3sfe engine
Rare Tuscan plum metallic
Typical 90s jap interior
Thoroughly looked after

I bought this in 2013 and it has been a bastion of reliability ever since. I’ve serviced it every 10,000 miles religiously. It’s had a new clutch, battery and timing belt in the last two years. Every bill, every MOT and the service book are all here. On a run it will do 40mpg and has seen 42.

The MOT is up mid May, and many of the advisories from last time are IMHO a bit over zealous.

The timing belt is due for replacement again, although this is a non interference engine. I’d recommend doing it because one of the bearings is getting a bit noisy.

It has four CrossClimate tyres on, rears have 3mm and fronts are about 4K miles old fitted November 2017.

It’s on 220k miles, and I’m sure it could keep plodding indefinitely.

I’d be happy to buy this back off the next owner, and would like to be offered first refusal.

I know I’ve forgotten lots so please ask and I’ll fill in the gaps.

I think you need to add price and location to ensure a trouble free sale. It sounds a good one.

Edit: ignore that.

Thought it was a £350 Austin Cambridge. Surely the only car you will ever need - especially the handsome pre-Farina!

Good buy for someone - and not as boring as you might think. This type is the most reliable car of ever.

I was expecting to see a Volvo 740 GLE estate, going by the title; automatic of course, with the towbar and 7 seat options.

 

For a car that fits none of the above though, that looks a decent bargain for someone.  Lovely colour!  GLWTS

In a cruel twist, my perfect spec car has just come up. So this does need to make a move.

Anyone?

I've had to use a manual on occasion lately. It is possible.
