Hi, As a proud owner of a 2002 Avalon VXI, which has done only about 125,000 kms, I've noticed that the mileage has reduced considerably over the past two to three years. For Sydney city driving, including plenty of time on the dreaded inner west sections of the M4 / Parramatta road on the weekends, the beloved Avalon used to give me about 500kms for 58-60L (full tank capacity). This has reduced drastically these days to around 350 kms. Just to add, there have been no signifcant changes to my driving patterns, usage or general traffic conditions on my routes. I'm wondering if there's a specific cause to the decline in mileage, however, I suspect it's very likely just wear and tear or the end of the car's useful life? No one likes paying $80 for fuel on a V6 engine, but I'd perhaps be less grumpier with what the car used to give me in terms of mileage for a similar outlay. Not a car junkie whatsoever, but would really appreciate any tips and service recommendations (e.g. spark plug cleaning, oil changes etc.) that could improve my situation. The trusty Avalon has otherwise been very reliable. Many thanks, P
Hi all, I'm new to the forum and am considering buying a 2000-2005 tarago. The claimed fuel economy for these vehicles is quite good. The details shown on Carsales show the fuel economy for 2000-2001 models to be 10 litres per 100k urban and 6.6 litres per 100k extra urban. The later models, 2004 etc are shown with what seems to be more realistic 10.5litres per 100k combined. Can any of you tarago owners give me some real world feedback as to the economy you get? Thanks in advance for your help!
