problem #1

Avalon 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 10,000 miles
I bought my vehicle brand new and have had continuing trouble with what I believe to be the fuel system. Upon acceleration the car will periodically (daily) sound like it is running on diesel fuel or as if water is mixed with the gasoline. I have taken the car back to the dealer on 4 different occasions, and they have not been able to recreate the noise and, therefore, claim they cannot fix the problem.
