2013 Toyota Avalon Limited 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
I've owned this car for less than a week and have 2 problems with it, the back of the driver side seat panel broke and the headliner is falling down. The sad part of this story is that Toyota knows about these problems and kept letting dealers sell this defective car. This is not an isolated incident, check Toyota Nation to read other owners with this same issue. Toyota is finally issuing a bulletin to the dealer on these problems. The dealer will fix it under warranty but I don't feel the same, I expect a new car to be trouble free not have to be rebuilt.
When ever you buy a new model or a new generation redesign, you have to expect some part issues. Once Toyota was aware of these items, they solved the problem at no cost to the owners. These issues have not carried over to the 2014 model.
I can't think of any new car regardless of brand that did not have some issue.
