Today’s HMC exclusive high-mile story comes courtesy of Bradley Davis. He shared a story with me about his 1997 Toyota Avalon XLS. He’s driven the car throughout high school, college, having his wedding ceremony, and now his current job. He just recently went over the 300,000 mile mark on it and he says it just keeps going.
You may be asking why I am including a photo of Bradley’s car in a ditch. Well, this past winter, he was on his way to work and got caught up in a snow/rain nightmare. While the Avalon, or “Avy” as he calls her has great tires and brakes, there was nothing in terms of traction to keep her from heading off the road. The good news is that Avy came out with no damage, and Bradley is still driving her today. Weall done, Bradley. Please keep us updated on Avy.
I wanted to add that it’s stories like this that we are looking for here at HMC. People who have had their cars for years and won’t part with them. No repair, even engine or transmission can keep them from their beloved car. If this is you and your car, let us know.
