Front and rear seal was one them not to mention power steering pump, rack and pinion ($2k), power window motor, 2 antennas, side mirror, boot, broken strut and on and on. My folks are in there late 60's and never beat the car. We have owned Toyota's since 1980 and this is the first piece of junk we have had. Grand total out of pocket has been $7,000. I attribute this to first year production and made outside of Japan.
I have a 2000 Nissan Maxima which has been perfect (62K miles). The next generation Maxima will be similar in size to the Avalon and will be built in U.S. for the first time. Here is a spy photo that will give you an idea of its size, the front and rear is covered up.
