Expensive Repairs

2006 Toyota Avalon Limited 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


I bought my Avalon two years ago. On the whole, I do like it, but I am not impressed with little things that break, or more to the point, my dealership's response to it. Ever since I bought it, the lever that controls the steering column keeps slipping out of place and steering wheel gives way. Just now, after two years of ownership, the lock assembly on the trunk broke. Because my warranty is on 3/36, I have to pay $450 to have a lock fixed. If Toyota quality is so great, why doesn't the company stand behind its product with a more substantial warranty? Also, why should such a small problem cost so much to fix. A two year old car should not be having these problems. I am not impressed.

Best Features

Air conditioned seats and automatic shade on rear window.

Worst Features

Provide a more substantial warranty. Yes, I know we can buy them. But other manufacturers provide them on cars that cost far less.
