Are toyota avensis wagon good cars
hello and greetings
i have been following avensis even before it came to existence, i mean to say i owned a toyota carina diesel td, before then an avensis 2002 first generation and now avensis second generation 2008 and all of them were diesel.
i found carina and avensis gen 1 to be easily manageable and easy to replace daily parts like lights and engine parts. i got impressed with carina thats why i bought avensis both are brilliant cars with minimal hokus pokus and focus being on the engine and long running machines with very or no visits to garage. due to change in environment laws and advancement in technology, the latest avensis is much more quiet, effective and runs very good , still toyota has kept it simple when it comes to interior and outlook, but the engine of the avensis has become more effective and powerful and also smooth.
few things to keep in mind is that that gen 2 avensis has egr and diesel particulate filter, these can clogged if the avensis is driven less and short tours, in my case this is not the problem. i already have spare diesel particulate filter and turbo with me bought on internet, in case it goes wrong. would like to mention that a friend of mine have mercedes and the dealer has advised him to drive on a long tour every year for over 180km to keep the engine from dying.
so this problem is not just related to avensis.
here are the pros and cons
2. few visits to garage.
3. good mileage around 16 to 18 km pr litre
4. big trunk room
5. small to big family requirement is fulfilled
6. nice on long routes
1. simple design with no first class interior
so as you see the pros are more than cons and hence making it the first choice

How to change headlight bulb for toyota avencis
You need to lift up about 3-4 black plastic "screws" that hold the black plastic cover in its place. Then you need someone with small hands to put one hand behind the light enclosure and open it by turning the back cover where its arrow points. Then open the metal holder that keeps light bulb in its place and pull the light bulp of from the cord. Then put new bulb to its place, test lights and put everything in its place in reverse order.
If the new light will not lit up, then use contact spray on the connector and jerk the bulp back and forth for awhile to clean it up.

Avensis bulb replacement
changing tail light on toyota avensis 2008 is a simple affair like the first love. if you access trunk and take the side little pockets you are able to check the hole and insert your hand in ti. now the tricky part, to change the brake light and the helplight they both sit on the same stock. to check this you have to move and see around from outside to check that you are touching the right stock. just when youre sure you can feel a little plastic handle on the top side of the stock this has to be pressed while you press one on the lower end of the stock, it takes time and patience but is achieveable,as in case of every success story, the two bulbs and stock can come out and you can change it.
the second part is of changing the signal bulb this has to be done very simple as it does not have a stock and the bulb comes out but just moving clockwise or anticlockwise dont remember so accurately and this is very simple to change.
to achieve all this there are some points that need to be kept in mind
1. daylight or a torch to check get the idea what we are upto and how the assembly looks, as you will not be able to change the bulb but through a mind picture of the assembly.
2. patience and go easy dont rush it may break some valueable parts and may cause extra money.
3. hope for the best
