Occasionally, At A Stop Sign/intersection Or Entering A Highway If I Have Come To A Full Stop Before Proceeding The Car Will Stall. I Pressed On The Accelerator And Nothing Happens. My Wife And I Have Found Ourselves In This Predicament Several Times Now And It Is Only Getting Worse. This Scenario Is Very Dangerous For Several Reasons, But The Most Important One Is That My Family Has Been Inside The Car When This Has Happened. We Have Had Several Scares Now, Because The Car Stalled On Us As We Were Entering The Highway. I Have Spoken To The Dealer About This Over The Phone And Both Times That The Car Has Been Serviced. After They Test Drove The Vehicle, I Was Told That This Was Normal Behavior Due To A Delay Between The Computer And The Accelerator Throttle. Additionally, I Was Also Told That toyota Is Aware Of This, But Has Not Addressed The Problem. This Is Extremely Upsetting Because My Family Is Now At Risk Due To A Computer Malfunction. I Urge The Nhtsa To Please Look Into This Matter As More And More People Based On Internet Searches Are Dealing With This Same Issue. I Own A 2005 highlander With 105000 Miles And This Has Never Happened. You Would Think That A 2016 Model With All Of Its Safety Features And Enhancements Would Be A Pleasant Driving Experience? But, Now That I Owned The Car For Almost 8 Months I Am Second Guessing Myself Whether This Was The Right Purchase. Once, Again I Urge The Nhtsa To Look Into This And To Anyone Else Out There That Is Experiencing The Same Issue, Please Speak Up So That Both toyota And The Nhtsa Address This Problem As Soon As Possible. *tr

We Relied On Consumer Reports Glowing Reports Of toyota highlanders When Purchasing Our New, 2016 Model Le highlander. However, We Are Very Unhappy With This Vehicle Because Driver Front Visibility To The Sides Is Obscured By The Overlarge Side View Mirrors And The Window Frames; And Backup Visibility Is Extremely Poor Because The Rear Window Design With Turned Up Bottom Corners, Low Placement Of Rear Wiper, And Small Window Size Severely Reduces What The Driver Can See When Backing Up. The Backup Camera Does Not Clearly Show Rear Obstructions When The Car Is Parked In Shade Or Shadows, Or The Driver Is Wearing Sunglasses. These Are Major, Crash Inducing Problems, Which We Reported To toyota Today. We Narrowly Avoided Two Collisions Because We Did Not See Vehicles Approaching Us From The Side Front Of Our Vehicle; And We Narrowly Avoided Backing Into A Parked Car (in Shade) Which Did Not Clearly Show Up On The Backup Camera. Two Of These Incidents Were In Parking Areas; The Third Was Driving Into A Left Bend On A Road As Another Vehicle Approached Head On. All Three Of These Incidents Happened In Broad Daylight, With Dry Road Conditions. We Have Had This highlander For Only 7 Months; And We Are Both Very Experienced Adult Drivers With Excellent Safety Records, Which Our Aaa Insurance Records Will Show. We Are Very Surprised That toyota Would Market The highlander With These Major Safety Design Flaws. They Seem To Have Placed Vehicle Appearance Over Safety With The 2016 highlander Le.

Since April We Have Been Trying To Get Our Windshield Replaced. The Local Auto Glass Dealer Brought Out 3 Separate Windshields That Didn’t Fit Before The Finally Disclosed That The Windshield We Needed Has Been On Back Order For Some Time. Apparently There Are Several Hundred On Back Order In Our Region And The Number Seems To Grow At A Rate Of About 15 A Week. We Have Contacted toyota And The Dealer With Neither Are Offering A Solution. Due To The Slope Of The Hood, The Slope Of The Windshield, Or Faulty Glass, These Cars Seem To Be More Prone To Cracks. With Our Car Having 4 Cracks Develop In Less Than A Year With Mainly Highway And No Gravel Driving, Plus The Back Order Rate, There Seems To Be A Broader Problem

Driving South On 12/20/2017, On Us-287 Near The Oklahoma/texas Border With No Other Vehicles Visible In Front Of Us Or Oncoming Traffic, The Front Section Of Our Sunroof Suddenly Exploded. Luckily The Shade Was Drawn Or Small Pieces Of Glass Would Have Fallen Down On My Family. The Weather Was Clear And Nearly Cloudless Blue Sky Day. Dealer Refused To Replace Under Warranty They Said It Had To Have Been A Rock. They Offered No Proof That It Was A Rock And I Find It Next To Impossible That It Could Have Been Caused By Anything Else. While Driving We Did Have A Fairly Drastic Temperature Change From The Mid 20’s To The Mid 60’s. We Were Driving Straight At Highway Speeds.

My Car Engine Started On Its Own After Being Turned Off. I Went Shopping At Walmart And Parked My 2016 toyota highlander Xle In The Parking Lot. I Put The Car In Park And Pushed The Engine Start/stop Button To Turn Off The Car. My Family And I Exited The Car And I Used The Keyless Entry Pad To Lock The Doors. We Shopped For Approximately 45 Min. When We Returned To The Car, I Used The Keyless Entry Pad To Unlock The Doors So I Could Put Our Purchases In The Trunk. As I Got Close To The Vehicle I Heard An Engine Running, But Thought It Was The Car Next To Us. I Bent Down And Listened Under The Front End Of My highlander And To My Surprise, I Realized My Car Engine Was Running. When I Opened The Driver Side Door And Looked At The Dashboard, I Noticed A Small Triangular Yellow Caution Light Was Flashing But I Don’t Remember What The Message Said Other Than Caution. If My Car Randomly Starts On Its Own While Its In A Garage, It Could Cause Toxic Fumes To Fill My Garage If Left On Long Enough, And Could Cause Harm Or Death To Someone Who Breathes It In. After Reading About The Brake/hydraulic Recall On Some 2015-2016 highlanders, Coupled With The Recent Issue I Had At Walmart, I Am Nervous About Driving My Car. I Wish I Had Read About These Issue Before Buying My Car 30 Days Ago. I Thought I Had Done My Homework And Read Several Websites Before Buying The Car, But I Will Read Recall Reports Before Buying A Car From Now On.

I Had The Vehicle By The Dealer For 10 Days But They Couldn’t Figure It Out. In This Time I Had To Pay Out Of Pocket For Rental And Other Expenses.

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.

July 3, 2016: We Bought The Car. July 23 5pm I Filled Up With Gas At The Chevron. Drove To West La For 15 Miles On The 10 Fwy With My Family In The Car, No Problem To Visit My Mom. 8:30pm We Left Her House To Go Home. We Drove On The Street For Two Minutes And We Came To A Stop Light I Braked To A Complete Stop, And The Car Died. The Dash Board Screen Said Put Your Car In Park And Start The Car. It Was Dark And Many Cars Were Behind Me, Waiting For Me To Start My Car. We Were Afraid The Car Behind Us Would Hit Us. My Daughters Were Sitting In The Back Seat, And My Wife In The Front Passenger Seat. I Put It In Park, Tried To Start. But It Did Not, So I Pumped The Accelerator, Then It Started. I Drove Onto The Freeway On Ramp, Got On The 10 Fwy Heading East. Traffic Was Good At First, Everyone Was Going 60 Mph. Then Suddently, The The Freeway Traffic Was Bumper To Bumper And I Had To Brake To Slow Down Quickly. When I Did, The Car Died On Me Again. The Dashboard Screen Said To Put The Car In Park And Start My Engine. Now, We All Began To Panic Because The Cars Behind Us Were Going Fast, And They Might Smash Into Us. We Were Afraid We Would Die Or Be Badly Injured By The Collision Coming. Luckily The Car Behind Me Stopped Without Hitting Us. Once Again, I Put It In Park, Pumped My Accelerator, And The Car Started. At This Point, I Decided, No Matter How Slow The Freeway Traffic Is, I Will L Not Brake, Because If I Do, The Car Will Stall, And We Can Get Hit By The Car Behind Us. So I Drove Very Slowy Until We Got Off The Freeway, And Arrived Home. August 2, 2016: 6:30am I Filled Up The Tank At The Shell Gas Station Near My House, Being Careful Not To Overfill It. Then I Tried To Drive To Work But The Exact Same Thing Happened.

We Special Ordered The 2016 toyota highlander Limited Platinum Model. We Purchased The Vehicle In A Town Approx 180 Miles Away. I Was The Driver Back Home. I Am 6′ 1″ And Wife Is 5′ 3″. We Ordered The Adjustable Memory Seats Which Are Good. The Safety Problem We Have Experienced Is The Headrests. For Shorter People They Are Tilted Forward In A Awkward Position. Other Than And Up And Down Position There Is No Way To Properly Adjust Them. My Wife Has Complained That She Cannot Be Safely Positioned Or Comfortable Driving With The Headrest In The Tilted Down And Forward Position. Adjusting The Seats Does Not Resolve The Problem Either. This Just Makes The Viewing More Difficult Creating Blind Spots. We Paid Over $52,000 For This Equipment Vehicle And Expected Comfort And Paid For The Extra Safety Features. However My Wife Is The Primary Driver (90%) Of The Time. Her Safety As Well As Others She May Not Be Able To See Is Most Important. I Immediately Contacted The Dealer And Expressed The Details And Safety Concerns As Well As Requesting A Workable Solution. The Service Department Said There Was Nothing They Could Do. The Sales Consultant We Purchased The Vehicle Ffrom Said He Was Aware Of These Headrest Complaints. He Recommended Doing What Other Drivers Have He Told Us To Reverse The Headrests? I Removed And Reversed Them. This Did Not Accomplish A Safe Resolution. Instead The Headrests Sit Back Much Farther Enough That When There Would Be A Collision The Driver Or Front Passenger Could Sustain Severe Neck Injuries Or Worse Possible Paralysis Or Death. I Can Just Place My Head Back Enough To Touch The Headrests But I Am Then Looking Up To The Roof. I Immediately Began A Safety Complaint And Case With toyota, I Was Told They Would Contact Me In 7 Days. It’s 23 Days Later. I Researched The Compliant And Found There Are Many Other Dissatisfied Owners ! Unacceptable!

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.

I Loaded A Kayak That Is About 13′ Long And Weighs 60 Lbs. Onto My toyota Factory Crossbars. When Driving On The Freeway We Heard Cracking And Popping Noises. Thinking It Was The Straps In The Wind, I Pulled Over Only To Find The Straps Secure. We Were On A Trip And Kept Going. After Hearing The Noise On And Off We Got To Our Destination And Found A Warped Roof And Dents In The Roof. This Should Not Happen To A Roof Of A Vehicle. I Would Expect The Cross Bars To Fail Before That Would Happen. After A Few Attempts, toyota Finally Had An Area Rep. Look At It. They Offered To Have Painless Dent Removal Or $1,000 Off Of Another toyota. I Didn’t Want Either Option. The Pdr Would Have Done Nothing And The Damage Would Come Right Back. They Were Not Believing Me That Carrying A Load On The Crossbars Did That. Well, I Swept It Under The Rug For A Few Months And This Fall I Had To Carry A 2×10 Boards On Top And Again, With Freeway Speeds Did It Again. Now At Christmas Time, We Cut A Tree Down And Loaded It On Top And Again, More Noises And Now There Is More Damage Than The First Pictures I Took The First Time It Happened And The Creases And Dents Are Deeper. Something Is Structurally Not Right With My 16′ toyota highlander And toyota Will Do Nothing To Help. I’m Out Of Options And I Hope Someone At Nhtsa Can Help! I Have A $40k Suv That I Consider A Lemon. (see Attached For More Information And My Attempts To Ask toyota For Help) Thanks! Jon Symoniak 4144186886
