Pros

Model News

The Avalon has been given a fresh new redesign for 2013. With a completely different interior and exterior than the outgoing model, the 2013 Avalon looks modern and sharp with just a hint of sportiness. The even bigger news for 2013 is the availability of a hybrid drivetrain for the Avalon, making it extremely fuel efficient for a car with such a heavy focus on luxury. Toyota borrows technology from the Prius to give the big Avalon some eyebrow raising fuel efficiency numbers, even managing to rate 40 mpg on the highway.


Value Writeup

The Avalon is the most expensive sedan sold by Toyota, starting at just under $31,000. With plenty of interior space and a nice, powerful V6 engine in base trim, the Avalon represents a pretty good value for buyers looking at entry level luxury cars. The interior is nicely put together and Toyota has a nearly unmatched reputation for reliability and build quality.


Model Highlights

The Avalon comes equipped with one of two drivetrains. The standard drivetrain features a 268 hp 3.5L V6 mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. Featuring three modes, normal, eco and sport, the V6 equipped Avalon has plenty of passing power while still returning up to 31mpg on the highway. The optional drivetrain is a hybrid-electric system using a 2.5L 4-cylinder and an electric motor for a total of 200 hp. With this drivetrain, the Avalon is able to achieve 40 mpg on the highway and 39 mpg in the city, making it extremely fuel efficient for a Luxury automobile.

V6-powered Avalons come in four different configurations, XLE, XLE Premium, XLE Touring and Limited. Base XLE Avalons come with plenty of luxury features right out of the box including leather seating, attractive 17-inch alloy wheels, a stereo with a 6.1 inch touchscreen, Bluetooth, an 8-way power adjustable heated driver's seat and 4-way power adjustable heated front passenger seat, dual zone automatic climate control and wood grain trim.

XLE Premium Avalons come with an auto dimming mirror, a backup camera and a power sliding moonroof.

The XLE Touring includes the addition of 18-inch wheels, fog lamps, an uprated audio system, a navigation system, a blind spot monitoring system and paddle shifters on the steering wheel. The top of the line Limited Avalon gets a rear sunshade, a 3-zone climate control system, a premium navigation system, a 10-way adjustable heated and cooled driver's seat and heated rear seats. Hybrid Avalons are available in XLE Premium, XLE Touring and Limited configurations, with the Hybrid drivetrain adding around $2,000 to the bottom line. Notable options for the Avalon line include radar-assisted cruise control, a remote engine started and a glass breakage sensor to help prevent theft.

There are plenty of safety systems at work in the 2013 Avalon, though most of them are invisible in most situations. Anti-lock brakes, stability control and traction control are standard as are the ten airbags and the tire pressure monitoring system. Options include a blind spot monitoring system, a radar based pre-collision system and a subscription to Safety Connect, which includes roadside assistance, a stolen vehicle tracking system and automatic collision notification.

Summary
Toyota Motor Engineering & manufacturing North America, Inc. (Toyota) is recalling certain model year 2013-2014 Camry and Camry HV, model year 2013 Avalon and Avalon HV and model year 2014 Corolla vehicles. In the affected vehicles, the windshield wiper switch assembly may short circuit. As such, these vehicles fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard, No. 104, "Windshield Wiping and Washing Systems."

Consequence
A short circuit could cause inoperative windshield wipers, reducing driver visibility and increasing the risk of a crash.

Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will replace the wiper switch assembly, free of charge. The recall began on November 8, 2013. Owners may contact Toyota at 1-800-331-4331.

Summary
Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing (Toyota) is recalling certain model year 2013-2015 Avalon and Avalon Hybrid vehicles manufactured October 19, 2012 to October 27, 2015 and 2013-2015 Lexus ES350 and ES300h vehicles manufactured June 18, 2012 to July 6, 2015. The affected vehicles are equipped with a Pre-Collision System (PCS) as optional equipment. In these vehicles, the PCS may unexpectedly activate and apply the brakes when the radar detects a steel joint or plate in the roadway as an object.

Consequence
A vehicle that unexpectedly brakes increases the risk of a crash.

Remedy parts for a permanent fix for this issue are not yet available. On November 18, 2015, Toyota sent owners an interim notification and dealers will temporarily disable the PCS. When the improved PCS components are available for the permanent remedy, owners will be mailed a second notification. These repairs will be performed free of charge. Owners may contact Toyota at 1-888-270-9371. Toyota's numbers for this campaign are F1V and F2E.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Summary
Toyota is recalling certain model year 2012-2013 Avalon, Avalon HV, Venza, Camry, and Camry HV vehicles. In the affected vehicles, the drain hose for the air conditioning condenser may become clogged causing water to accumulate at the bottom of the air conditioning condenser unit housing. The accumulated water may then leak through a seam in the housing onto the air bag control module potentially resulting in a short circuit of the module.

Consequence
A short circuit may cause the air bags to become disabled or inadvertently deploy. An inadvertent airbag deployment can increase the risk of injury or the possibility of a crash. An inoperative airbag can increase the risk of injury in a severe crash. The power steering assist could also become inoperable resulting in increased steering effort and can increase the risk of a crash at low speeds.

Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will seal the air conditioning condenser unit housing and install a protective cover on the airbag control module, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Toyota at 1-800-331-4331.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov.
