Man puts 500,000 miles on his Toyota Avalon

Our Orlando Toyota vehicles are renowned for their reliability, there’s no doubt about that. They’re constantly scooping up awards for reliability, resale value, retained value, and performance. However, we recently caught wind of a story that made us see just how incredible new Toyota cars actually are – a North Carolina man recently hit the 500,000 mile mark on his Toyota Avalon XLS! Even more impressive? It’s got the original engine and original transmission under the hood!

Orlando Toyota Avalon boasts unbelievable high mileage abilities

Pretty cool, right? Mike Lipperman – the Greensboro, NC Toyota driver who can boast this claim to fame – bought his new Toyota Avalon back in 2001. His daily commute to work is pretty extensive; he puts about 600 miles per week on his car, which made it pretty easy to reach the 500,000 mile mark in less than 15 years. Basically, with that type of mileage he could have driven to the moon and back!

Like we said, this new Toyota is showcasing its original engine and transmission. The only parts that he’s had to replace thus far are parts that experience normal wear and tear, such as the water pump and the timing belt. Mike is thrilled that his new Toyota Avalon has hit this impressive mileage – he said his success with the car has inspired other members of his family and circle of friends to buy Toyota vehicles as well!
