I complained to Toyota and they concluded that I push the brake pedal and then the gas pedal too often. I have voiced my opinion to them, and on social media. It's got great audio and comfortable seating for 20 hour drives! Original review: June 12, 2018 2013 Toyota Highlander - The model has been great, extremely helpful with the 3rd row feature. I immediately called the dealership and they replaced the felt but nothing changed. It is understandable problems will arise, but with no warning and a car stalling on a major highway, the incident could have been extremely dangerous. Drove it in the snow a few times with great traction on a mountainous area of Washington state.
Work done is engine brake, brake pad both front and back, front glass repair 2 times, all 4 tires. Luckily we were able to pull to the shoulder. I had the dealership perform routine pad replacement maintenance on the front brakes. I can't say anything bad about it, except that I wish Toyota would lower the price and that more companies followed Toyota's example and came out with hybrid models. He's no dummy, college educated and in his 30's.
The car had to be towed. The check hybrid system light came on and then the check vsc light came on. Took it to dealer thinking maybe it was the transmission, with 206,000 miles. I absolutely love driving it - a step up from the plush minivan that I had been driving. Original review: May 5, 2018 The Toyota Highlander is a good all around car. I also think that this option is useless. I'm also surprised Toyota is making you foot the bill for the failure as this is a known issue.
Like a dummy I did. No other access so use the chisel to crack the radiator loose. The car was towed too a nearest dealership and the problem was the hybrid inverter. Owners do complain that the Highlander Hybrid is quite expensive, and it still has that bland Toyota styling. The contact took the vehicle to the dealer for a diagnostic test.
Quality and service is no longer a trademark for this once proud brand. Upon starting car for post-install test, steering wheel made uncommanded turn to full stop in one direction. Nice write up and pics, thank you. I contacted dealership, was told they would install if Toyota would agree. Well the illusion is gone. I also wish I had heated seats over the back up camera.
There are still people who take pride in keeping their vehicles maintained and serviced. Had it fixed once by dealer - they repainted. The navigation is really the pits, just as all factory nav systems invariably are. I have found evidence of faulty valve springs in other 2015 Highlanders. I've just heard mixed things on this, maybe depending on the what I'm attempting? I feel this is a flaw in the original manufacturing. The cup holder in the console is really stupid.
Original review: July 14, 2018 My 2015 Toyota Highlander Limited busted a valve spring at 75473 miles I think it's still at the dealership. The interior is spacious and comfortable combined with the smooth handling make you feel like your driving a smooth riding sedan. Please contact me regarding this matter. But the doors are very light. It's not got all the computer equipment the new ones do and it's mine. I have driven only 44k mile and car has not been any accident and has been all regular maintenance and oil change.
It selects 3 road options, and all 3 are weird! I replaced the brakes at 110,000 miles - unbelievable! Let me back up and say this never happened on any of my previous Toyotas or the 2015 Highlander. Trying to brake at the intersection, stop light and highlander would not stop. I was fortunate noone got hurt. Is there anyone out there having same problems? I hear it all the time. It is comfortable, has plenty of power and safety features, and modern amenities.
Over the weekend my wife got a thin bed sheet she was using to protect the floor area. The seats in this car looked much worse than mine but it had almost 10,000 miles on it. Refilled the tank with a higher octane fuel. When we took it in to the dealership they said the water pump malfunctioned, causing the car to overheat, then the engine seized, basically killing the engine. It may be stuck for 2 or 3 weeks and then mysteriously turn off.
