Hello and Welcome -
My name is MIKE..
Im happy to say that the Avensis you mention is not especially prone to head gasket failure no -
In fact - they are an extremely reliable motor.
I would suggest that if you buy it- check, if its not had a service recently, have that done and look after it service wise and it should serve you well.
Let me know how you go..and / or let me know if you need anything further on this..

.. Note that you can get back to me anytime at all after doing the rating - it doesn't close you out --
