2005 Toyota Avalon Limited 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
Purchased vehicle new and after approx. 2 years noticed problem in starting engine(no pattern to problem). Dealer claims foot is not being held firmly on brake pedal when starting. Why did it take 2 years for this to become a problem. Dealer has kept vehicle on 2 occasions for several days and says it never failed to start. They said they have never seen this problem before & don't know where to look for the problem. Toyota said basically the same thing. When it fails, and without changing pressure on brake pedal, it usually starts after 4-5 attempts. Strange Toyota "engineers" can't provide a fix for this problem. This is my last Toyota. Small oil leak at 1000 miles.
Keyless entry & remote start when they work properly.
Instruments could be more visible in daytime when sun is shinning on dash. Improve back-up light intensity. Position of steering wheel also hides some of the instrumentation.
