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.

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

Whenever The Weather Is Colder Like 35 Degrees Or Lower I Am Having Issues Starting The Vehicle. The Dealer Already Changed The Battery But It Did Not Help. 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. Yesterday It Took Me 45 Minutes Until I Was Able To Start The Vehicle. I Spoke To toyota And They Are Not Very Helpful.

I Was Driving 80 Mph On The Interstate When The Engine Light Came On And A “check Awd” Display Appeared. At That Same Moment I Lost The Ability To Steer And To Accelerate. I Managed To Get The Car Off Of The Interstate. The Car Came To A Stop. I Did Not See Any Smoke, Or Smell Anything And The Engine Temp Gauge Showed Mid Cool So I Decided To Start The Car Again. When I Tried To Start The Car, The Engine Light And The “check Awd” Display Came On Again, And Then Seconds Later A Temperature Light Came On With A Loud Alarm. Smoke Started Coming Out Of The Front Left Hood. I Shouted For My Daughter And Her Friend To Get Out Of The Vehicle. I Grabbed My Phone And Ran To Her Door To Help Her And Her Friend Get Out. By The Time We Were Running Away, Flames Were Coming Out Of The Hood. Within Minutes My Car Was Completely Engulfed In Flames.

When Driving My highlander The Following Error Messages Appeared, Error Keeping The Start Button Pressed Will Cause An Emergency Stop. I Dismissed This. Then It Popped Up A Message That Car Cannot Drive While Brake And Accelerator Are Pressed Simultaneously. I Lost Ability To Accelerate So Tried To Pull Of Busy Road, Pressing The Brake Pedal Restored Acceleration. Then When I Stopped In Traffic Or At Lights The Car Shut Itself Down And Had To Be Restarted. These Error Messages Kept Coming On While I Drove To The Dealer. I Switched Off The Car At The Shop And It Wouldnt Repeat The Problem, No Codes Have Been Recorded By The Vehicles Computer Because The Check Engine Light Never Came On. toyota And The Dealership Want To Wait Until It Happens Again. Since It Happened Before, Also While It Was Driving I Am Uncomfortable As It Is A Safety Concern. I Don’t Want It To Happen On A Busy Highway. I Believe The Intelligent Power Module Of The Car Is Shorting Out And Causing The Car To Go Into Failsafe Mode And Shut Down Creating Hazardous Driving Conditions.

Purchased Vehicle 5/26/14. At First Had A Popping Noise From Right Rear Break; Took To Dealership Stating Could Find Problem, So Lived With It. At 10,000 + Miles Dealer Found Front Breaks Warped, So Had Them Replaced. Around Same 10k + Miles Dealer Had To Drop Engine To Replace Leaking Oil Found Around Timing Cover Area, Stating Factory Install Did Not Allow Proper Sealing. On 7/22/15, @ 12,748 Miles Noticed Oil Leak Same Area, And Informed By Dealer That Engine Has To Be Dropped For The 2nd Time To Repair Oil Leak. Above Does Not Include Other Issues Such As Replacing Middle Row Cup Holder And Front Passenger Seat Recushion. Sounds Like I Purchased A 2014 highlander Limited Considered A Lemon. My Three Previous Cars – ’06 Avalon; ’02 4runner; & ’90 4runner Never Had Extreme Issues, Such As The 2014 highlander.

At Totally Random Times, After A Few Miles Of Driving Or 100 Miles, Vehicle Hesitates When Accelerating.

Took Vehicle To toyota Dealership And Of Course Vehicle Ran Fine For The 4 Miles They Drove It. Tech Checked For Any Trouble Codes And None Were Found. This Seems Like A Rear-end Accident Waiting To Happen. For Ten Days We Have Gotten Nothing But The Run-around From The National toyota “case Manager”.

The Vehicle Has A Hesitation Or Lack Of Acceleration Problem. It Occurs From A Stopped Position Or A Moving State. I Have Had It To The Local toyota Dealer 5 Times And They Have Not Been Able To Find The Problem. They Were Able To Duplicate The Problem. They Have Been In Touch With toyota But They Say No Problems Exist, Which Is What I Have Come To Expect From toyota Corporate. My Wife Was Almost In An Accident On The Interstate Yesterday, 08/28/2013. I Would Estimate That The Problem Has Occurred At Least 10 Times Since We Purchased The Vehicle In July. This Is A Safety Issue. Thank You In Advance For Your Help On This Concern. Also, The Dealership Is Going To Give Us A Loaner Today And Possibly Just Let Us Return The Vehicle. They Have Been Great, Palmierro toyota.

I Bought A 2013 toyota highlander In October 2012 And Never Noticed Any Problem Until Early In 2014. When I Try To Accelerate On A Small Incline, The Accelerator Would Not Respond. It Acted As If I Am Not Pressing The Gas Pedal. I Am Not Talking About Going To The Mountains But Just A Small Incline When I Drive Home From Work Everyday. I Took It Into The Dealer In March 2014 And They Responded Same As Other People On This Website, No Errors On The Diagnostic Machine And No Posting From toyota. They Advised Me To Put In Premium Fuel And I Did But That Did Not Make A Difference. Very Disappointing From A toyota With A V6 Engine. The Dealer Also Tries To Say It Is Due To Cvt Transmission. However, I Have A Subaru With Cvt As Well And That Car Can Accelerate Uphill When Needed. I Have Had A toyota Celica, Tercel, And A toyota Truck In My Life And None Had This Type Of Problems. *tr

The Driver Happened To Look Down At The Fuel Tank And Noticed That The Temperature Gauge Exceed The Measuring Mark (over The Red Zone) And Was Still Running. The Driver Immediately Went To A Safe Place. Towed To The Dealership. Dealership Informs That A “small Rock Or Road Debris” Traveled Through The Front Grill And Punctured The Radiator. After Researching Why The Radiator Is Not Covered Under The Warranty On Brand New Vehicle Under This Road Debris, I Read Over 30 Reported Cases In Not Only The toyota highlander, toyota Tundra, And toyota Corolla As Their Is No Protection To The Front Portion Of The Radiator And/or Condenser. Would Have Caused Engine Fire, Do Not Understand Why There Were No Safety Lights And Or Indicators Something Was Wrong With Vehicle. *tr

I Purchased A New 2013 toyota highlander Limited In November 2013. A Few Days Later, Upon Accelerating From A Stop Into A Left Turn, The Engine Cut Off For A Few Seconds While Entering Traffic. This Happened A Couple More Times Before The First Checkup, At Which Time I Informed The Service Technician, Problem Was Noted On Service Sheet, But When Service Was Completed, They Said They Could Find No Problem. The Hesitation Continued, Quite Randomly, And Seemed To Happen In Left Turn, Accelerating Situations. At Next Service And Checkup (different Dealer) I Told Them About The Problem And It Was Written Up Again With Same Result, No Problem Could Be Found. This Has Been Reported To Dealer At Least Three Times, No Results, No Action Taken, No Problem Found. I Consider This A Dangerous Situation, Especially When Merging Into Traffic. Based On Information I Have Seen, It Appears That toyota Should Address This Problem Asap. *tr

I Purchased The 2013 highlander New From A Dealer In Vienna, Va In July 2013. The Auto Started A String Of Engine Hesitancy To Accelerate Problems At Around 5,000 Miles Which Was Reported To The Dealer At The 5,000 Mile Check-up And Again At The 7,500 Mile Checkup. The Service Department Could Not Duplicate The Problem And Gave The Engine A Clean Bill Of Health. We Moved To Mn In May 2014 And The Hesitancy Of The Car To Move (accelerate) From A Stopped Position For Several Seconds After Engaging The Gas Petal Continues And Is Increasing In Frequency. The Car Has Been Taken In To The Local toyota Dealer On Three Occasions With The Same Answer That There Is No Problem With The Car. I Have Been In Two Near Accidents While Pulling Out In Traffic On To A High Speed Divided Highway And Consider This A Very Serious Safety Issue. It Happens Randomly, (three Times This Past Week), But A Pattern Has Developed – Most Incidents Occur While Idling At Intersections For Some Time Waiting For Traffic To Clear, Traffic Lights, Etc, And Then Making A Left Hand Turn Onto The Roadway. The Car Has Exhibited This Behavior Only A Couple Times While Making A Right Hand Turn From A Idling Start. The Sensation Is That The Engine Stalled And No Matter What Is Done With The Gas Petal Nothing Happens For Anywhere Up To 4-5 Seconds. With Traffic Moving At 60 Miles An Hour And One Is Attempting To Merge Into Traffic, A Five Second Delay Brings The On-coming Traffic Almost 450 Feet Closer To One Before The Car Starts To Move Requiring More Distance In Traffic Gaps To Overcome A Potential Stall In The Roadway. I Have Come Across Another Local Owner With The Same Problem And Note At Least 15 Other Complaints On The Web Of Almost The Exact Circumstances. What Does It Take For toyota To Recognize This As A Safety Issue? Updated 12/12/2017*cn

While Attempting To Turn From A Side Road Onto A Main Road, I Needed To Accelerate To Blend Into The Faster Moving Traffic. While Attempting To Accelerate The Engine Acted Like The Gas Pedal Had Not Been Pressed But Maintained The Previous Slow Engine Speed Despite The Gas Pedal Being Finally Pressed To The Floor. While Maintaining The Full Gas Pedal Position The Engine Finally Revved Up And The Suv Lurched Forward. I Have Not Been Placed Yet Into A Hazardous Situation, But That Is Becoming A Reality. This Hesitation Has Recurred More Than Twenty Times Since Then. No, I Have Not Taken This To toyota Since They Appear To Have No Concern For The Many Fine Folks Reporting Similar Engine Stalling.

Upon Entering Into Car After It Had Been Parked I Smelled Gasoline. Wife Said She Had Just Filled Up Before Coming Home And Perhaps Spilled Some. I Got Out Of Vehicle And Checked And Saw Small Puddle Of Gasoline Where Car Had Been Parked. Moved Car Away From House And Raised Hood To Vent Engine Compartment. I Removed Front Skid Plate/panel To Find Leak And Allow Further Air Circulation. I Power Cycled Key And Saw Fuel Leak Again. After Further Investigation Found Were Main Fuel Line Was Misting Onto Engine And Surrounding Parts. Leaks Were Coming From Middle Portion Of Hose And Not At Connections. Next Day I Had My Car Towed To The Dealer. They Suspected Rodent Damage. Upon Inspection There Was No Evidence Of “chewing” Or Other Type Of External Damage. A Replacement Line Was Ordered And Installed. I Was Charged For The Repairs. I Have Kept The Original Fuel Line For Further Investigation. Dealer Had No Explanation Of The Cause Of The Failure. I Feel Blessed That We Did Stop When We Did Otherwise It Would Of Resulted In An Gasoline Fed Engine Fire Because Of The Gas Spraying Onto The Exhaust And Other Hot Engine Parts In A Confined Area.

I Am Asking That The Nhtsa Investigate The 2013 highlander Limited For The Ability To Turn Off The Car While In “drive” After Parking. We Purchased Our Car New Form The Dealer, And Ever Since We Have Been Able To Turn The Car Off The Vehicle After Parking But In “drive” Which Has Led To The Car Unintentionally Rolling Downhill On Several Times. On Two Occasions It Has Led To The Car Not Restarting. We Have Asked Our Local Dealer And Service People, At toyota Of Seattle, About This Several Times And Have Been Told, Albeit With Inconstant Reasoning, That The Car Was Designed To Have This Capability. We Have Two Small Children And To Us This Seem Extremely Dangerous, As The Only Way To Be Alerted To The Fact That You’ve Left The Car In “drive”, Other Than The Vehicle Rolling, Is A Beep Sound. However, This Beep Is The Exact Same Sound Alert You Get When Your Lights Are On, Or A Door Is Open, Or You’re Running Out Of Gas — Making It A Common Sound That Does Not Signify A Dangerous Situation. Also, Often This Sound Does Not Register In The Brain Until You Are Out Of The Vehicle, Because The Same Sound Is Used To Alert That A Door Has Been Opened Before The Car Was Turned Off. In Which Case, The Noise Goes Away After You Get Out And Close The Door. We Have Had Several Occasions Where Our Children Have Gotten Out Of The Parked Vehicle While We’re Trying To Determine The Source Of The Beep And Then The Car Will Start Rolling. I Am A Careful Person, So Given My Innumerable Close Calls With This Issue I Encourage You To Investigate This Issue Before Someone Is Killed. Thank You Of Your Time. Sincerely, [xxx] Information Redacted Pursuant To The Freedom Of Information Act (foia), 5 U.s.c. 552(b)(6). *tr

My highlander Was At The Airport For Three Days Parked. When I Was Leaving The Lot I Was Driving Slow In The Lot To Pay My Parking. When I Got Out Of The Lot To Main Stream Traffic I Tried To Accelerate And The Car Would Only Go Slow As I Kept Pushing The Throttle. There Were Cars On Both Sides Of Me With No One In Front And Then The Car Just Took Off. It Did Startle Me Because I Was Not Expecting This. Thank God No One Was In Front Of Me Because I Am Sure I Would Not Have Reacted Fast Enough To Stop Because Of The Rapid Acceleration. Something Is Wrong With The Throttle In These Vehicles. I Did Not Take It In Because I Am Sure They Would Not Have Been Able To Reproduce The Problem. This Has Only Happen Once And I Hope It Doesn’t Happen Again. *tr

I Was Stopped At An Intersection (red Light) And Was Needing To Make A Left Turn. The Light Turned Green But This Intersection Does Not Have A Green Arrow So You Have To Yield To The Oncoming Traffic. As I Proceeded Forwarded A Little Bit Into The Middle Of The Intersection So I Could Make My Left Turn, I Slowed Down To Almost A Stop Because There Were Too Many Cars And I Couldn’t Turn At That Moment. Then There Was A Window Of Opportunity For Me To Turn Shortly After I Slowed Down Almost To A Stop And I Stepped On The Gas To Go, Then Nothing Happened. The Vehicle Just Paused For About 2 Or 3 Seconds And Then Suddenly Jumped Forward. My Wife Was In The Car And She Thought It Was Me Mashing On The Accelerator Pedal But I Didn’t, It’s Just That The Vehicle Didn’t Do Anything And Then Suddenly Jumped Forward! Luckily When This Delay Happened, I Wasn’t In The Oncoming Traffics Lane, Nor Were There Any Oncoming Traffic Close At That Moment. At The Time This Happened, I Even Thought Maybe It Was Me Not Giving The Vehicle Enough Gas, But It Happened Again About A Month Later. This Is When I Did A Google Search For Delayed Acceleration And I Came Upon Other’s Who Have Mentioned The Exact Same Thing Happening With Their toyota Vehicles As Well. Please Look Into This As This Is Very Dangerous. This Vehicle Is Less Than Two Years Old And I’ve Read That Others Have Had This Problem With Their Older toyota Vehicles. I’ve Even Read That toyota Knows Of The Issue Already But They Have No Fix????? *tr

While Parked At A Curbside, With Engine Idling, I Spontaneously Decided To Adjust My Tilt Steering Column (up/down) To See If There Was A More Comfortable Position To Drive. When I Moved The Column Down For The First Time (i Had Never Tried To Adjust The Position Previously, Since I Bought The Car One Year Earlier), The Car’s Engine Immediately Shut Off. I Could Not Re-start The Engine And All I Kept Thinking Was Thank-goodness I Was Not Driving, As I Had Lost Engine, Steering And Braking Power. The Recent Headlines About Gm’s Ignition Switch Problems And Drivers Suddenly Losing Control While Driving Made Me Realize That I Could Have Easily Been In A Similar Catastrophic Loss Of Control Situation, Because Of The Tilt-steering Problem I Encountered. I Thank The Stars That I Was Not Driving Or On A Highway When This Occurred. My Car Had To Be Towed To The Dealer For Repair. Apparently, An Ignition Switch Wire Somehow Became Detached Or Broken Due To My Single Tilt Action. Scary Indeed. *tr

The “maintenance Required ” Light Came On And I Started Noticing A Strange Noise As I Started The Car Every Morning And Again As I Accelerated. I Called And Made An Appointment With The Dealer I Purchased The Vehicle. The Service Attendant Reported To Me That The Oil Level Was Barely Visible On The Dip Stick. The Dealer Ship Conducted An “oil Pressure Test” And Did Not Discover Any Leaks. So They Are Conducting An “oil Consumption” Test And I Am To Return To The Dealership After 1100 Mile To Determine The Amount Of Oil Consumed On My Vehicle.

T-sb-0201-11 From toyota States “some Vehicles Equipped With 2gr-fe/fxe Towing Package Engines May Exhibit An Oil Seep From The Engine Oil Cooler Pipes.” This Tsb Affects toyota And Lexus Vehicles Going Back To At Least 2008-present. This Is A Major Issue, And I Feel This Should Be Handled As A Recall Instead Of A Tsb Due To The Severity Of The Issue If/when The Pipe Breaks. I Recently Elected To Have My Vehicle Repaired On My Own Just So I Wouldn’t Have To Worry About This Issue Happening To Me Or My Wife, And Thus Blowing Up My highlander‘s Engine Causing Thousands Of Dollars In Damages. Seems Pretty Bad That A Recall Can Be Issued For Floor Mats And Accelerator Issues, But No Recall Is Issued For This Issue Which Can Drain The Oil From Your Engine In A Minute, Blow Up Your Engine, And Then Possibly Wreck Your Vehicle. Consumer’s Engines Are Now Being Destroyed, And This Is Showing Up In Different Online Forums. I Feel That The Nhtsa Needs To Force toyota To Replace All Of The Defective Engine Oil Cooler Pipes With The Newer Metal Ones That The Tsb Addresses. They Should Also Be Forced To Reimburse All Costs To Those Individuals That Either Needed To Have The Repair Done, Or Decided To Preventatively Have The Repair Done On Their Own Before Those Pipes Burst On Their Own. *tr

Twice In September 2014, As I Was Approaching A Stop Light, I Pressed The Brakes And Slowed To Nearly A Stop. The Engine Suddenly Accelerated Very High, And If I Had Not Already Had A Foot On The Brakes, I Would Have Gone Into An Intersection. The Engine Was Running So High That It Was Difficult To Keep It From Moving. I Shifted Into Neutral, Came To A Complete Stop, And While The Transmission Was In Neutral, Took My Foot Off The Brake Pedal. The Engine Immediately Returned To Normal Idle. This Same Sequence Happened Both Times. This Has Happened Twice This Month, But These Are The First Occurrences Since I Purchased The Vehicle New. I Called The toyota Dealer, And The Service Person Said That If The Vehicle Isn’t Demonstrating That Behavior When I Bring It In, They Would Not Be Able To Find What Caused It. They Indicated That The Vehicle Data Recorder Would Not Record Such An Event. They Said They Would Add A Note About This To The Record They Have On This Vehicle (they Have Done All The Service Since I Purchased It From Them).

We Were Traveling On The Interstate After About A 7 Hour Drive And The Low Oil Pressure Warning Display Was Flickering On And Off But Never Stayed On Consistently. I Pulled Over And There Was No Oil In The Engine, I Mean It Was Bone Dry. I’m Truly Surprised The Car Was Still Operating. When Oil Was Put In, It Poured, And I Mean Poured, Right Back Out. We Had To Be Towed Because The Car Could Not Be Driven. It Was Determined That The Engine Oil Cooler Line Was Leaking.
