    Carista works to disable them. I used their app and dongle to do it. They are controllable separately.
  3. 2013 JBL Speaker Problems

    From what was told to me by ABT the amp is under the driver seat for my 13 limited, the XM radio under the passenger seat. Ymmv.
  4. 2014 Avalon Interior Wear Issues. Anyone else?

    Avalon 4th Generation (2013-2018)
    I have a 13 with 75k miles, no such flaking like that on my gray interior. I did have the side bolster split on the driver's seat at about 30k miles.
  5. Ok, so what would you like to see changed

    Avalon 4th Generation (2013-2018)
    On my 13 I can leave the car running if I exit and then pop the key out of the fob and manually lock the door. I do like most of the other suggestions, and would really liked to have had the heated steering wheel, and real air conditioned seats.
  6. Leather seat issue

    Avalon 4th Generation (2013-2018)
    Very interesting. Thanks for the pictures. I wonder if the change in part number is also indicative of a known defect in the old part like it was for the original 2013 mirror whistling.

    I also had mine fail on my 13 after two years and 34k miles. Replaced under warranty with no hassles from my dealer.
  8. Front door panel removal

    Avalon 4th Generation (2013-2018)
    Glad it gives you a starting point, I had to pad all 4 controls and then came up with a fix for the back pillars that were rattling due to a 12" sub in the trunk. Unfortunately corporate doesn't always tell the truth because I know for a fact they are aware of the problem they just refuse to...

  10. Bluetooth dropping

    Avalon 4th Generation (2013-2018)
    I had this same problem once on my 13 limited. Narrowed it down a contact I had added o'Brian removed the apostrophe and it went back to normal, just an FYI.
  11. 2015 Avalon XLE factory paint defect!!!

    Avalon 4th Generation (2013-2018)
    ^ this. Don't give up. When I talked to Toyota, they said I could take the car to any dealer. Maybe you should reach out to another service manager at another dealer explain the situation in detail and see if they have any suggestions or if they can step in and make it right. I've had three...

    Avalon 4th Generation (2013-2018)
    If customer care and the dealer don't give you satisfaction open a dispute case with ncds. It's listed in the manual. It costs nothing to the consumer only Toyota, and a little time to fill out some paperwork. That was the only way I could get them to open their eyes to the issues. Another...
  13. Please release me!!!

    Avalon 4th Generation (2013-2018)
    I had mine fail in the locked position also, you have to go thru the trunk and put you hand into the hole behind the little plastic door pull in the carpet stick you hand way in there and pull the plastic lock towards you feels like a T assembly. The dealer had to replace the part but the fix...
  14. interior sliding cover for sunroof

    Avalon 4th Generation (2013-2018)
    The dealer did the Velcro add on mine and that helps keep it in place most of the time. They did add two steps on top of each other nearest to the rear view mirror.
  15. Steering Column Noise

    Avalon 4th Generation (2013-2018)
