Toyota Avalon ProblemsCheck Engine Light Due to Failed EVAP Purge Control Valve

Toyota Avalon Questionswhy is my car emitting quite a bit of water on the garage floor after I use it? (1 answer)
It's 2 weeks old and I never had so much water come from a car after driving it.
It's been very hot in Florida, but I only went a short distance this evening, 5miles, round trip.
Other times, it's as bad, with daytime driving of about 30 miles, round trip..
it but it is still not working ?
Had it checked out and that wasn't it. Also had transmission checked. I was told that's not it. You can hear noise around 45mph or greater. I'm baffled .
Toyota Avalon RecallsSeat Heater Wiring Shorts And Causes Fire
For vehicles equipped with aftermarket accessory seat heaters, the seat heater elements may short circuit when the seat cushion is compressed, and result in a fire hazard. Dealers will disconnect the seat heaters and refund the purchase price of the seat heaters free of charge to resolve the concern,
The occupant classification system may not appropriately detect an occupant in the passenger front seat, and as a result will not power the passenger frontal and knee air bags for deployment in an accident. Dealers will re-calibrate the occupant classification system free of charge to resolve the concern.
The pre-collision system may activate while driving due to the radar equipped with the vehicle recognizing steel plates or roadway joints as an object that should be avoided. Dealers will temporarily disable the system as a precaution at this time, and will notify owners of affected vehicles a second time when a permanent repair procedure is available. Repairs will be made free of charge.
