The Low Beam Headlights Are Melting The Plastic Cover On The Headlight Assemblies. Both Sides Are Melting From The Heat Of The Low Beam Light Bulbs. It Was First Noticed At 37,000 Miles, At 3 Years Old. Factory Installed Parts, No Modifications Have Been Done To The Vehicle. The Low Beam Lights Are Only Operating At Night, About 25% Of The Driving Time On The Vehicle, So The Melting Occurred Within Approximately 10,000 Miles Of Driving Time. The Vehicle Was Out Of Warranty When It Was Reported To toyota, But This Melting Has Been Occurring Since Day One. This Defect Will Affect The Safety Of Nighttime Driving In The Vehicle. Worked For Months With Dealership, Unsatisfactory Resolution.

When Driving On The Fwy, Intermittently Depending On The Wind Or How The Door Was Shut For The Rubber Seal To Make A Solid Connection, There Is Significant Wind Noise That Breaches The Seal And Makes Excessive Noise. This Is Most Noticeable In The Drivers Side And Is Where I Measured For Sound Levels. The Closer I Bring The Meter To The Window By The Side Mirror Then More Noise Is Recorded. Sometimes It Doesn’t Happen At All, Even At 70mph. Other Times, And Often It There Is A Wind Noise Coming Into The Cabin. With toyota‘s Claim For It Being Such A Quiet Cabin, This Noise Is Not Right. I Test Drove With The Tech Manager At My Dealer And He Too Noted The Problem. He Ordered A New Door Seal. There Is Nothing Wrong With The Door Seal, And I Didn’t Have It Installed. However There Was A Window Frame Black Plastic Panel That Wasn’t Properly Seated, And This Was Replaced. Not Sure If It Fixed The Problem, As Its Too Early To Tell. There Is A Large Number Of Report From Other Owners Online With This Issue. So Far I Know Of One Owner Who Returned The Car Due To This Excessive Wind Noise. *tr

When Using The Adaptive Cruise Control It Maintains A User Specified Travelling Distance Behind The vehicle In Front. When The vehicle Changes Lanes, Or Is Turning Off, The vehicle Is Barely Off The Lane, But The Adaptive Cruise Control Still Reacts To The Car That Has Exited The Lane. This Causes My toyota To React To The Slowed vehicle That Has Just Exited My Lane By Slowing Unnecessarily, And Causing vehicles Behind Me To Have To Slow And Some Times Get Irritated By This Action. I Told toyota About This. I Was Told There Is A Fix On The Way, But No Action Has Taken Place In The Past 3 Years. A Tech Drove The Car On The Road In Front Of The Dealership, But He Obviously Did Not Drive The Car Enough, Because If He Had, He Should Have Noticed This Odd Behavior. It Happens Some On The Interstate, But Is More Pronounced Behavior When On 2 Land Roads. This Behavior Has Occurred Ever Since We Bought It New.

On City Street Driving About 37 Mph. Adaptive Speed Control Engaged. I Approach A Car Going The Same Direction Slightly Slower, About 35 Mph. That Slower Car Is Following Another Car About 2 Car Lengths In Front. My Car Gently Breaks To Bring My Speed Back To 35 Mph. My 35 Mph Is Being Maintained At A Fixed Distance From The Car In Front Of Me. The Car Directly In Front Of Me Changes Lane Opening Up A Gap Of About 3-4 Car Lengths To The Car In Front Of Me. My Car Now Speeds Up Aggressively Because There Is No Car Directly In Front Of Me. Instead Of Breaking When My Car Gets Closer To The Rear End Of The Car Now That I Am Approaching, My Car Continues Aggressive Acceleration Toward The Rear Of That Car. My Car Would Surely Smash Into The Rear Of That Car If I Don’t Brake Significantly. This Has Happened Several Times Through The Years Although Not Frequently Given The Conditions Needed To Experience The Fault. I Believe It Is Repeatable And Suggestive Of A Software Issue. All The Hardware Elements Seem To Be Working Just Fine.

This Complaint Relates To Transmission Shift Sequences. When Starting Out, The Transmission Is In Fourth Gear. If You Are At Say A Traffic Light And Are Making A Left Turn, And Then Need To Make A Rapid Acceleration, The Transmission Shifts Down To A Lower Gear, Probably 1st Gear. When This Happens, There Is A Significant Torque Steer That An Inexperienced Driver Would Find Very Disturbing. Also, When Traveling 60 – 70 Miles Per Hour And You Shift From “drive” To “s” Position, The Transmission Goes Into Fourth Gear With A Resultant Significant Increase In Rpm’s. It Would Seem Logical That When You Shift From “drive” To “s”, You Should Reflect The Same Gear That “drive” Was In. When I Took It In For A 5,000 Mile Check Up, My Dealer Said There Was Nothing He Could Do Related To Transmission Programming. Second Issue, Same Vehicle, Refers To The Installation Of Muffler And Tailpipe, Which Causes Tailpipe To Be The Lowest Item Under Vehicle Resulting In It Dragging The Ground In Certain Instances; I.e., Going Up A Steep Driveway. Dealer Confirmed That They Could Do Nothing To Raise Muffler/tailpipe. *tr

Vehicle Shut Off During Driving, Causing All Electrical Systems To Fail Including The Electronic Steering, Which Since Vehicle Also Turned Off, Caused The Steering Column To Lock Up. Since The Problem Occurred At Speed And Infact While Making A Turn, A Near Collision Occured. The Problem Occured Multiple Times In Succession And Was Also Intermittent With Much Time Elapsing Between Episodes. Two Other Types Of Related Occurrences During This Timeframe Were The (1) Vehicle Also Cycling Off And On And (2) Would Also Turn On Itself If The Key Was In The Vicinity Of The Vehicle. toyota Of Seattle Experienced The Issues When The Vehicle Was Brought In And Diagnosed The Issue To Be A Loose Bolted Connection Of The Negative Electrical Wire From The Battery To The Frame Of The Vehicle. Though The Vehicle Has Experienced Similar Issues Since Tightening Of The Negative Wire Bolts. Ongoing Issues Include The Electrical System Cycling Off And On While Driving Including The Navigation And Front Console Display. The Vehicle Was Bought In September 2014 And Had Less Than 25k Miles As Of April 2016. On Two Prior Instances Electrical Issues Were Identified And Documented To toyota Of Seattle And The Vehicle Was Kept For Testing. The First Electrical Issue Occured With The Adaptive Cruise Control Failing And Thereby Requiring Passenger Intervention To Avoid Collision. This Cruise Control Failure First Seemed To Occur In December 2015. toyota Of Seattle Did Not Find Any Fault And Sent Me Away. The Second Prior Electrical Issue Of The Battery Prematurely Failing Occurred In March 2016. The Readings Indicated Some Odd Draws. toyota Of Seattle Replaced The Battery And Sent Me Away Without Addressing The Odd Draws.

2014 toyota highlander Limited Has Begun Making Noise When Traveling Relatively Slow (<30mph) On A Normal Road. When There's A Very Minor Bump, A Squeaky Sound Will Come From The Rear. It's Not So Noticeable On The Freeway (perhaps Fewer Vibrations And/or The The Wind Noise Overpowers It). Upon Further Investigation (riding In The Back And Listening For The Source), It's Coming From The Rear-hatch Door/car Gap Near The Bottom Corners. It Sounds Like The The Powered Hatch Isn't Fully Tight And The Weatherstrip Is Rubbing. However, The Door Doesn't Feel Or Appear Loose At All. *tr

I’ve Purchased 2014 highlander On Jan 2014. I Have Complained To The Dealers About The Rear Noise Starting In 2014 And All They Could Said Was To Make Sure The Jack Tool Is Secured In The Back. They Couldn’t Identified The Issue. Today I Found Sb0016-16 And Had A Dealer Confirmed The Trailing Arm Issue. This Is Part Of The Rear Suspension System. I Contacted Toyoda With Case #1708260897 And They Said Mine Is Out Of Warranty And Won’t Pay For The Repair. It Didn’t Matter If The Issue Was Identified Before The Warranty Has Expired And Before This Bulletin Sb0016-16 Came Out. The Repair Cost Is Estimated To Be $1,200.
