Q: How can I override the protection on the Toyota Avalon Navigaiton that doesn't allow u to use it while driving
I have a 2006 Toyota Avalon with the Navigation systemand this Navigation system doesn't allow you full access to program destinations while driving. It is really annoying... you have to pull off the freeway and park somewhere to find/enter a destination. I know, some will say that I shouldn't be doing this while driving, but the passenger should be able to do use the system while I drive!. I have seen ways to get into a service menu on the Toyota Prius that allows you to disable the motion sensors and program it while driving, but the Avalon does not have the same type of navigation so I cannot use the same procedure. Does anyone know how to override the vehicle sensors on the Avalon Navigation? Or do you know how to get into the service menu? Thanks!
A: I checked the forums at edmonds.com and could not find any modifications to the navagation system that would allow this. Don't stop looking though, I am sure someone else has had this issue as well and at some time, someone will figure it out and post it on the web.
Q: Does anyone have a schematic for changing the timing belt on a 1999 Toyota Avalon?
I need to change the timing belt on my 1999 Toyota Avalon. Someone please send me the step-by-step instructions. Thanks

Q: What kind of gas should I use for a 2007 Toyota Avalon?
-Unleaded Regular -Unleaded Plus or -Unleaded Supreme Which gas should I use for a 2007 Toyota Avalon XL? Keep in mind that it's a V6.
A: Generally speaking, unleaded regular will work if it is 87 octane. Watch out in the mountainous states, e.g. Utah as they reduce the octane level to 85 in many areas. They say the elevation reduces the need for higher numbers but if you don't stay there long enough for your on-board computer to reset, avoid it. There I use unleaded plus which is 88 octane. My Solara has the V6 and appreciates the higher octane.
Q: Can you fit two 98 Toyota Avalon and two 98 Toyota Camry in 40' container?
I have two 98 Toyota Avalon, and two 98 Toyota Camry cars (four total). Is it possible to fit these all four cars into one 40' container? Thank you all for response.
A: Yes, If they are no more than 10 ft long!! - I don't know the Avalon, but you should get 3 Camrys in a 45 ft container or 2 of each in 30 ft containers. Do not rely on the parking brake to hold while in transit, they will have to be secured by either chains or ratchet straps, otherwise you will have over 3000 kg moving about. You could always " double deck" them in a 40 ft lol
Q: How long do you think my 1996 Toyota Avalon will last?
I totally wrecked my 1998 Corolla in January of last year (still owed a little money on it). I was blessed to find another Toyota (1996 Avalon) under the tough circumstances I faced. I've had no trouble with the car whatsoever. I've had it for over a year, and it has 191, 450 miles on it right now (got it paid off now). I take care of it (oil changes, etc.) the same way I did the newer Toyota. How much longer do you think my Avalon will last me?
A: As with any car, if you take care of it, then it will take care of you. Proper maintenance is critical to a long life, so keep on doing what you have been and you could double its mileage before it needs an engine rebuild.
Q: Is a Toyota Avalon more of a granny car?
See, I am trying to get a new "used" car, and I have my sights set on a Toyota Avalon, but my mother seems to think it's a granny car. I don't think it is, but I don't want other people to think it is either. Let me know, thanks. I do plan on tinting the windows, but I don't think I will do anything else to it, unless I redo the paint job on it, but that will call for some money saving, lol.
A: Do you want RELIABILITY or LOOKS? Who cares what others think. If you're that insecure with yourself, you can always do little things to the car to make it look more hip. One thing you shouldn't do when spending thousands of dollars on a car is trade reliability for hipness. Ummmm news flash here yo for some of you mental giants .... it NEVER has been, NEVER will be, hip to be seen stranded on the side of the road because your hip, tricked out lookin', UNreliable ride broke down on ya. Toyota tops the world in reliability. There is no equal.
Q: How long can you expect a 1995 Toyota Avalon's to last?
Searching for a used car. Looking at a Toyota Avalon with 135,000 miles on it. How long can we expect this to last before problems with it, and what problems is it known to have?
A: Toyota makes a pretty dependable car, but the longevity of any vehicle depends on how well it has been maintained. If it has gone through it's regular service intervals, had the oil and coolant changed at recommended mileage, and not driven like a Formula 1 race car it should last well beyond 200K miles.
