I purchased this car brand new in 2002. I have been thrilled with its performance and reliability. I have kept up with all maintenance.
All was well until 6/1 when I pulled into the parking lot at work, and as I turned into my parking space with MY FOOT ON THE BRAKE PEDAL, going no more than 2 mph, my car suddenly accelerated, hitting the car next to me. I felt like I was in a go cart with no control.
The left front headlight was smashed and there is damage to the hood and bumper.
I had it towed to Toyota as I was afraid to drive it. 2002 Avalon's are not recalled vehicles. They cannot find anything wrong with it.
I am afraid to get my car and drive it. After all of these wonderful years, I can no longer trust it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
