Toyota Avensis - high oil consumption - MY resolved - eustace

In the CBCB about the Toyota Avensis, HJ mentions that earlier models had a problem with high oil consumption due to a bore liner problem and/or being fitted with slightly undersize pistons.

Do any one know from which Model Year this problem was fully resolved?

I have read of this problem having affected cars upto Model Year 2004 (54).

Any one knows of any later models being affected?

Toyota Avensis - high oil consumption - MY resolved - Alfie's Dad

Mine was registered in 2002, 1.8 vvti, it has the problem and I'm trying to get Toyota to fess up, it's been an issue for years, I've told the Toyota garage at every service and they never told me about the fault until now!

I've read somewhere here or on the Toyota Owners Forum that they solved the problem by 04-05...?
