Toyota Avalon owners have reported 6 problems related to rear suspension (under the suspension category).
Rear strut mounts on my 2005 Toyota Avalon failed at 45,000 miles. It cost over $900 to replace the rear struts and mounts. I contacted Toyota who ignored my written communication for over 1 month. I finally received the standard (off warranty of 36,000 miles) response after I sent an email.

: the contact stated during a routine inspection an independent repair shop determined the rear bearing was loose. The bearing became loose due to the worn bushings. There is a NHTSA recall, # 00v154000, regarding the rear suspension. The VIN was not included in the recall.

I have a 2005 Toyota Avalon purchased new in April,2005. I also have an earlier complaint,odi#10119869,regarding having to re sauder radio speaker wires,replacing the bushings and lower sub frame,as well as air conditoning,steering,and radio problems all occurring in the first 33 miles of owning the new car. I accidentally filed it under a Toyota scion for Toyota corp. Please see that compliant also. . This complaint is about the transmission. It seems to not want to get out of first gear. Getting onto the the freeway is terrible,as well as driving in slow traffic. I have taken it into the dublin Toyota dealership and they said there is nothing wrong,it's just that the sensory computer in the car knows how I drive and the gears follow my driving habits. They said they reset it,that maybe when the car was test driven,it set itself to another driver. They said to drive it easy for the first 50 miles,then normally after that. Well, before I even drove off thier lot,it stuck again-but I had to go to work so I called them as soon as I got to work and have to take it back in again. The real safety issue occurred yesterday,when I was the first car waiting at a train crossing for about 3 minutes while the train was passing. Afetr it passed,as I was crossing the tracks,it took about 15 seconds for the car to move ,again stuck and reving in low gear!I have almost been rear ended on freeway entrances,red lights turning to green,andnd numerours other times,and now on train tracks!!!!something has to be done- I also have compliined to the dealership about noises when steering and they said it is just the release of the brakes. Since I cannnot duplicate it,they say there is nothing I can do- it is not the brakes because it happens when I am making sharp turns.
Contact states while having an oil change mechanic informed him that the tires were rubbing against the rear suspension of the vehicle. Mechanic said there was no way to correct this problem.
