Not the Toyota I Expected
By mikeecee on
2005 Toyota Avalon Touring 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
Our Avalon was purchased w/ about 90,000 miles...we took it for a short test drive it was great!
HOWEVA', when driving on longer trips, both passenger and driver seats become uncomfortable, to the point of numb legs.
After about a year of ownership, during an oil change, the technician informed me there was 'a lot of oil on the engine'.
We took it to the dealer, and a crankshaft gasket had failed (they said it is a freak thing).
Most expensive repair ever.
Otherwise, it has been fairly reliable
Quiet ride & gas mileage, great stereo, interior space, get-up-n-go.
