Best advice would be to leave this car with the dealer for a week or two for them to drive to see if they can replicate the problem. If the dealer is unable to fix the issue, you may have to file a complaint with Toyota. This is not a common complaint from Avalon owners that I'm aware of as of yet. Start keeping a detailed journal of when (dates and times) and EXACTLY what you are doing when this happens. With it dying randomly, I would say its a big safety issue... call the dealer for a tow every time it happens.

Why does 2005 Kia Sorento die randomly

I was on vacation in S.C. and engine would die every 20 mins. or so, I took it too dealer and they could find nothing wrong except a bad plug wire periodically wouldn't fire. I said replace it and 3 years later problem is still fixed. Must have caused a glitch with computer.

My 1997 Buick LaSabre just dies at random. 5mph or 60mph--no hesitation--just death. Then it wont restart till its ready, if at all.....Sometimes three times in a day...sometimes not for a week. I'm scared...

can't help you but I have a 1993 LeSabre doing the EXACT same thing! I am sacared to drive it, never know when it will happen. Never know if I stop at the store if it will start back up. I have to drive in the right hand lane just in case it dies so I can pull over! I hate it!

Hey my battery on my key died and my car wont start.Is there a way for me to manually start the car other than the push button? I drive a 2006 avalon limited edition

You donot want to be ripping down and pulling out wiring in the starter harness to repair what is obvious, that is a beautiful car not a wrecked vehicle, why would you not have it towed to get it repaired properly? Beside if there is any warrantee on this repair you will have definately void it by attempting to jump the starter system out.

Needs a battery, or you have a draw pulling it low.

Ford Contour apparently starves for gas, dies.

tell your mechanic to replace the fuel filter. This part is usually less than $10. It should be replaced aout every 50K miles.

Tucson 2009 dies mid drive

The possible CAUSES of the problem you describe are NUMEROUS!.. You may have what the industry calls a 'LEMON.' There is a LEMON law in every state. Sinse it's a 2009 model, keep at them (dealership). Warranty procedures APPLY! You may not like it, but you are covered under WARRANTY!.. I'm sorry, but under the warranty agreements between Hyundai Motor America and the Dealerships, you are relegated to KEEP AT them.The most difficult problems/malfunctions to diagnose are those which DON'T STAY BROKEN! Tell you what, since you posted your problem here, you'll have to do some homework yourself (become a Hyundai Certified Technician).. then you'll see how DIFFICULT the diagnosis can be. Walk a mile in the technician's shoes! Sometimes the problem can simply be a resistive/poor ground
circuit, OR, could be potentially a multitude of different problems. Take/tow the vehicle into a Hyundai Service Center (dealership), Insist they find out what the problem is!... Then you'll have the option of having them buy it back under the "Lemon Law.'
