Brand New Car In The Shop Twice During First Week. Following Refueling (not Topped Off – Stopped At First Click) The Car Starts Stalling At Red Lights Or At Low Speeds. Has Done This A Dozen Times. On The Highway Car Stutters, Check Engine Light Comes On And Traction Control Becomes Disabled. The Dealership Says This Is Due To Overfilling The Gas Tank And Changed The Carbon Cartridge For The Evac This Is Definitely Not The Case. A Second Refill After The Repair Confirmed That The Problem Exists Even When Filling Up Very Carefully. If Gasoline Is Filling Up This Component Then There Is Something Seriously Wrong With This Vehicle And Its Dangerous To Drive. Again This Car Is Only 9 Days Old And In The Shop Twice For The Same Reason. Losing Power At A Busy Intersection Is Dangerous As This Has Happened In Areas Where Cars Are Moving Quite Fast. I Was Almost Rear Ended When My Car Stalled.

I Was Just Proceeding From A Stop At A 4 Way Intersection Go Very Slowly When I Received A Warning On My Dashboard Saying “eps Failure, Steering Wheel Harder To Turn”. I Was Then Physically Unable To Turn The Steering Wheel, Almost As If The Power Steering Was Disabled. This Was At An Extremely Busy Intersection And I Almost Hit A Telephone Pole. Even When Trying To Back Up And Turn, My Vehicle Was Unable To Steer Other Than Going Straight Forward And Back. After Turning The Vehicle Off And Restarting It, The Error Went Away And My Steering Resumed As Normal, But I Smelled A Burning Smell. This Was A Very Scary Incident And I Could Have Been Seriously Injured If I Had Hit The Telephone Pole, If I Had Been Going Faster, Or Someone In The Intersection Could Have Hit Me. There Was A Recall For This Exact Issue In The 2015 Model And It Should Probably Be Expanded As This Issue Seems To Exist With The 2016 Model As Well.

Mileage was 41000 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):5TDDKRFH7GS. TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2016 problem was reported in ERIE, PA. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control. VEHICLE SPEED: 10 mph.
