Toyota Reliability?
By Thomas Anzalone on
Vehicle
2006 Toyota Avalon Touring 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
Review
I purchased a Toyota Avalon because I thought I was purchasing a reliable vehicle-this has been anything but the case. At 58000 miles I noticed a trail of oil leading up my driveway. Upon looking under the vehicle I noticed oil pouring out of the engine compartment (oil light never turned on). The vehicles vvt-i oil lines failed and the vehicle needed to be towed to the dealership. Ironically 2 weeks after this happened I received a service campaign notice from Toyota "recalling" the faulty oil lines. Incidentally the oil leak contaminated the alternator resulting in it being needed to be replaced. At 59000 miles the steering shaft began to clunk and now needs to be replaced ($379).
Favorite Features
comfort, roominess, acceleration
Suggested Improvements
Reliability. Better fit and finish- numerous rattles throughout vehicle including the sunroof, wheel well, and dashboard. Rubber door guards to prevent dents in door panels.
