2006 Toyota Avalon Owner Comments

problem #11

  • 89,800 miles


While driving in town at about 25 mph, the car will accelerate by itself to 30mph, even if the accelerator is released. Pushing down on the accelerator has no effect. The acceleration is brief and stops by itself. This has happened several times over the last few weeks. Cruise control not engaged. The car computer was re-flashed at the dealer year to address to address sensitive accelerator issues.

The check engine light came on with the vsc and slip lights on the dash. Had it scanned and the codes are P2195 and P0138. I am having a huge problem with this, I feel that Toyota should cover this problem or atleast most of it. It's $1700 to fix this problem that many Avalon owners are or have had with this!!! 06 Toyota Avalon - edmunds answers Jan 10, 2009 - P2195 - oxygen (A/F) sensor signal stuck lean (bank 1 sensor 1)...

The contact owns a 2006 Toyota Avalon XLS. The contact noticed that whether she was driving the vehicle or it was in park, the seats would move, the doors would lock and unlock and radio would suddenly turn on; she believed these issues to be caused by electrical failures. The failures occurred on an intermittent basis. The contact took the vehicle to the dealership several times in regards to the problems but no repairs were performed. The vehicle was currently at the dealership for a recall repair and the electrical failures. The failure mileage was unknown. The current mileage was approximate 58,800.

My 2006 Toyota Avalon XL has been giving problems shortly after my purchase. The first was the breaking of an oil hose followed by stalling on the freeway. I have taken it to the dealership for diagnosis and for over a week they have not been able to tell me anything.
