what made you say so?
do you think an RX330 is easy to maintain with all its bevy of electronic aid computer and sensors?
do you think its easy on gas considering its size, mass, and engine displacement?
do you think its a "kazeem the mechanic fit repair am" kind of car?
do you think its cheap to purchase?

Op if you buy this RX330 and you cant maintain it and it do you strong thing, you will live to hate any car with 'L' in an oval shaped badge.

Finally op, go get what so ever tickles your fantasy and can give you easy of maintenance.

which is your take on both of these cars
Re: Which Of These Cars Is Easy To Maintain by sultaan(m): 3:26am On Feb 09, 2015
This is Nigerian dynamics at its best.

You sold a pathfinder after 6 months now you want a Toyota you can afford?

The Avalon and RX300 of the same year cost more than Highlander brand new.

You said you can't afford to buy the Highlander, then some might think you can't afford to own the Lexus considering it a better car than the Highlander.

So we have to play it safe here and pick the Avalon because it has the better fuel economy and should be the cheapest going by Nigerian standards.

Re: Which Of These Cars Is Easy To Maintain by tollybloggz: 2:15pm On Feb 12, 2015
Sure avalon moves smoothing depends on ur shock absorbers.
Re: Which Of These Cars Is Easy To Maintain by nathdim: 2:59pm On Feb 12, 2015
Pls anybody who has the idea of a very clean 02 avalon

I beg to differ, I stand out from the crowd.
I drive a 2003 H.L 2.4l. It is smooth, soaks up uneven road surface and feels sure footed on the road. I even take it to some of my site. Its durable very dependable and its not bad on fuel at 19MPG city 25MPG highway.


Go for the HL and thank me later. cool
If you need the extra bells and whistles, get the Limited model trim.

I think with your 1.8million budget, you can get a 2003 2.4L highlander.

Highlanders don't come cheap in Naija. I get scared of Berger deals because folks say its not genuine papers, and they are tampered with (audio device, foglamps, antenna mast, or even Odometer roll back, why not try Lagos warf or cotonu but insist on genuine custom papers. The last time I checked for a friend in december I finally found an 03 HL 2.4 FWD base trim for 2.2m, registration and other things such as tracking device + fueling and driving to Abuja made it go to NGN2,442,000. It was from Lagos Warf and had a clean title with all accessories intact.
