Body, Interior & Misc., February 5, 2010

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Toyota is recalling 2005–2010 Avalon; 2007–2010 Camry, 2009–2010 Corolla, Corolla Matrix, and Rav4; 2010 Highlander; 2008–2010 Sequoia; and 2007–2010 Tundra models because the sliding surface of the friction lever may become smooth during operation, which can cause condensation. This may cause the accelerator pedal to become harder to depress, slower to return, or to become stuck in a partially depressed position, which can increase the risk of a crash. Dealers will install a reinforcement bar in the accelerator pedal so it will operate smoothly.

Body, Interior & Misc., December 31, 2009

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Toyota is recalling 2004–2010 models for an accelerator pedal that can get stuck in the wide open position due to problems with the floor mat. This may cause high vehicle speeds that make it difficult to stop the vehicle, which can result in a crash. In order to correct the problem, dealers will replace the pedals, alter the shape of the floor, and/or replace the floor mats. Toyota will also modify software on certain models to ensure that the brake overrides the accelerator in the event that both are applied.

2008 Toyota Avalon Reviews

purchased 2008 Toyota Avalon XLS 3.5V6 engine with 30, 205 miles
one owner in great shape. Shortly after it started making soft
pinging noises in the engine when first started up. I bought it in Feb 2013, and now 10/30/13, have 37,000 miles and in the engine intermittent and at times much worse than others it sound like the lifters are making noise in the engine. I took it to the dealership purchased from and they say it is nothing to worry about and all ok. I don't like hearing the noise and
would like it fixed, but they hesitate to do it. I bought a 4yr
extended warranty for all major repair. Does anyone else hear these noises in their engine when starting or after driving awhile it will do it and usually when stopping and then starting at a light, it will do it for short periods.

Replaced condenser at 15,000 miles for $500 as rock hit condenser and damaged it.
Toyota said road hazard no warranty coverage.

Same thing at 62000 miles. Another500$.

This is obviously a design defect.
No more Junk Toyota for me. Obviously there is improper protection for the condenser.
