We purchased a 2020 Avalon in Fall and have had to return to the dealer 3 times because of an oily residue weeping out of interior plastic panels. Not seats or headliner. Dealer has been helpful but puzzled. Anyone ever hear of this?

Well... if it is only a residue from from the plastics then it is probably some sort of finishing treatment. Try cleaning it with cleaning wipes or just use alcohol until it is clean and see if it comes back.

This is the third time it has been wiped, cleaned and aired/dehumidified by dealer. Just keeps coming back. Toyota told dealer it has never had the problem before. Have some concern about toxicity. Like an oily outgassing. Gets a little less after each treatment in some spots but then worse in others. We have had 3 Camrys with no problems.But love the car. Thanks for your interest.

I had this oily residue as well on my phone charger cover and driver arm rest upon pick up of my 19 XSE. Thought it was just some kind of dressing the dealer had used. I just used mothers apc and a microfiber to clean it up.
