starter problem

Asked by Mar 08, 2017 at 08:02 AM about the 2010 Toyota Avalon Limited

Question type: General

Just brought a 2010 Avalon, with push-button start. Never had non-key start car before. When I press start button, whining sound, occurs, for a second, than car starts. This whining sound also happens, when exiting driver door. I thought it was starter going bad, but was told by dealer, this is normal. But, I had spoken with other drivers, who say they don't have this issue. Have I been sold a bill of goods?

Avalon is a great car. I would go to a mechanic shop and get a second opinion.

I mechanic said it could be the solenoid?
