2005 Toyota Avalon Touring 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)

Review

Purchased in 11/05 as a pre-owned "certified" vehicle. We have the blizzard pearl with black interior. Purchased with 8,000 miles on it. The vehicle handles nice with plenty of horsepower. Noticed an oil leak the first day we brought it home. Brought it back to the dealer and they performed a TSB repair, oil lines etc. To make a long story short we went back to this dealer at least 3 times to fix and to another dealer about 4 additional times to finally get this resolved. We had to involve the Toyota Corp rep to get satisfied results. The engine had to be pulled to find the leak which was a void in the seam sealer near the cam saddle. Lets just say that I never expected this from a Toyota.

Favorite Features

Auto stick, sunroof, exterior styling.

Suggested Improvements

Get rid of the tacky doors over the radio, tape deck. Lumbar on the pass. side. Get rid of the attitude that Toyota could not have reliabilty problems.
