Did Toyota have a problem year with the Avensis?

Not really, no. You may be thinking of the case of the massive recall, back in 2010-2011, where millions of Toyotas were recalled across the globe to fix supposed 'unintended acceleration' problems (in the US) and sticky brake pedals (in Europe). Generally speaking, it was a lot of fuss over nothing.
The Avensis, and this goes for any Avensis model, is as close to a paragon of reliability as you can get. The only common issues are an exhaust gas recirculating valve failure on turbodiesel models, and a cold-starting issue on the same. Essentially, it's a very hard car to go wrong with.

I know of a Garda Avensis that uses six litres of oil per week. That's fine when the State pays for it, but if it's coming out of your pocket it's a different story...
