2001 Toyota Avalon experiencing problems with the brakes, and windows. There was a persistent problem with noise that seemed to originate from the front end. The noise was intermittent and noticeable after the vehicle was warmed, when making turns or when applying the brakes. An inspection revealed that the caliper slide was sticking onto the left front side. The brake rotors showed signs of glaze, there was a wobbly feeling when the brakes were applied, the passenger side heated seat was intermittent, the vehicle was pulling to the left, the drivers windows would go up and down, the stripping on the bumper was coming off, the steering would shake at times, the fuel gauge fluctuated, the radio buttons were fading, the cassette was inoperative, there was burning smell coming from the vent, the vehicle stalled with no warning, the wiper blade(s) were noisy, the windshield had "million" of dots all over it, and the front panel was lit for the back lights and there was a limited amount of air/heat that would blow on the drivers feet. The rotors were machined and the front and rear brake pads were replaced. The front struts were cracked and caused the front end noise. The radio, steering angle sensor and the front struts were replaced.

Both visors (L&R) have broken. When the visor is latched out of the way there is undue stress on the hinge and anchor causing the hinge assembly to break apart. This stress also causes the anchor that to holds the visor at rest to rip out. This is clearly is a desgin flaw and should be repaired by Toyota. I was told out of warranty at 39,000 miles, sorry.
