    Received a letter from Toyota yesterday for my wife's '11 Avalon Blizzard White saying they were aware of some paint peeling issues with the BW and the White paints parked in the sun for extended periods and were coming up with a corporate approach to the issue. So if you have or had problems, document them thoroughly and wait for them to document the way they wamt you to handle it.

    I post this in the v section since many early v wagons had BW paint and may be subject to the issue.

    I will also say my family has or had 4 BW Toyota products with no such issues. Only one was regularly parked outside.
