You would think that Toyota's "top of the line" sedan and "top of the line" trim would reflect the qualtiy the company is known for. You would be wrong. I can barely turn the radio up without an annoying buzzing/rattling sound every time a bass note is hit. I don't listen to rap or anything bass heavy, nor do I even have the bass turned up, yet that doesn't prevent the car from sounding like some piece of junk built in the late 80s with a cheap Walmart radio dropped in. The buzzing comes from the door panel and can be alleviated if you uncomfortably contort yourself to lean against the door. I've taken it to two dealerships and they say it's part of the car's design. REALLY? The analog and digital speedometers also do not match up and are slightly off. It's not a big deal, but you would think that this is something Toyota's QC would catch but apparently that, too, is within tolerance just like the buzzing sounds. These issues are not uncommon with Avalons, something I didn't find out about until after I bought the car and then started researching the issues I experienced. full 2015 Toyota Avalon review
