2005 Toyota Avensis 1.6 from Greece
It is not worth the money
Mirrors make a noise when the doors are closed.
ECU does not work well and the car is "shaking".
Noise from the engine.
For a brand new car the problems, are huge.
At the first 300km, I had to change the brakes (I went twice, because at first they fixed them at the screw machine, and after 100km they replaced them).
The RPM was not stable, and the car was shaking.
The service informed me that the problem was existing from the beginning, and Toyota is looking for a solution.
After 3 months, they changed the ECU, but the problem was the same.
They are still trying to find what is happening, and of course they didn't accept that the car has a problem after they replaced the ECU.
As for the mirrors, at least now I hear noise only from the left one.
The engine is noisy at low and high speeds.
I was thinking to buy a Corolla for second car, but now my only thought is how I will get away from this Avensis.
Bad for the reputation of Toyota.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

You must be driving correctly or running the crap out of the car and abusing it. This is very rare in a toyota and sometimes in all vehicles there is one bad apple in the bunch. My 2005 Avensis is totally dependable and love the car with 25,000 km's in one year!
