While Accelerating Onto The On-ramp Of The Of The Highway, The Warning Light Came On,the Rear Door/window Warning Came On And Then The Dome Lights Came On. It Continued Going On And Off For About 15-20 Minutes. Very Concerning When You Are In Highway Traffic And Can’t Get Off! Previous Times That This Occurred, The Seat Belt Warning Would Ding, The “back Door Open” Warning Would Flash, The Dome Lights Would Turn On, And Then It Would Stop. Yesterday, That Cycle Continued. My Husband Believes Yesterday’s Incident Began Due To A Bump In The Road. On Previous Occasions, There Was No Bump. *tr

There Are Two Issues With My 2011 highlander. I Purchased This Vehicle 1 Year Ago And Am Quite Upset About The Issues And The Money That I Need To Put Into It. I Am Actually Looking Into Trading This Vehicle As, After Spending 26k On It, I Shouldn’t Be Dealing With Or Paying For These Issues. toyota Has Been Nonexistent In Offering Remedies. I Have Only Ever Owned toyotas (2 Camrys And 1 highlander) And Probably Will Never Own One Again. Thanks toyota!!! – The Alarm Constantly Goes Off For No Apparent Reason. I Am Unable To Lock The Doors On The Vehicle Otherwise The Alarm Will Go Off Every 30 Minutes To 1 Hour. toyota Wants To Charge $130 Just To Look At The Vehicle. This Is A Known Issue That Presents Itself In Every toyota Forum. There Should Be A Recall On This. – The Bolts That Connect The Window To The Contraption That Rolls Up And Down The Window All Have Fallen Off. This Cost Me 150 To Fix On Just One Window. The Bolts Loosen By Themselves And Fall Off. This Too Has Been Listed On Many toyota Forums And Should Have A Recall. *tr

The Rear Door Sensor Keeps Indicating The Door Is Open When It Is Not. This Causes The Interior Lights To Flash, Door To Chime, And The Rear Display To Show “door Open”. This Began Happening When I Would Turn Left. When The Weather Is Really Hot Outside (90s And Above) It Is Worse. This Issue Causes A Bigger Problem, With The Vehicle Thinking That The Rear Door Is Not Closed It Does Not Allow Me To Lock/alarm My Vehicle When Out In Public. I Am Active Duty Military And Currently Live Overseas, So Keeping My Vehicle Locked/alarmed Is Extremely Important.
