I Purchased A New toyota highlander From Massey toyota In Kinston, Nc In May Of 2018. On August 11, 2018, The Rear Hatch Glass Spontaneously Exploded And Fell Out Of The Car While It Was Sitting Untouched In The Driveway Of The Owners Home. The Weather Was Clear And Warm. toyota Initially Refused To Cover This Under The toyota New Car Warranty, However Finally They Agreed To Cover The Window. A Few Days Later My Wife Started Noticing A Squeak And Rubbing Noise Coming From The Back Hatch When The Car Was Was Warm From The Sun. After Taking The Car Back Numerous Times To The Dealer. The toyota Service Department Discovered That The Back Hatch/back Door Was Rubbing Near The Spoiler Area Of The Hing, At Such A Force To Cause Paint To Come Off The Area. The Service Manager Agreed That This Was A Manufacturer Defect And That toyota Was Required To Cover This New Car Defect. However, After Having The Car For 2 Weeks toyota Refused To Cover The Manufacture Defect. In Conclusion, The 2018 toyota highlander Model Has A Defect That Results In The Back Rear Door & Spoiler To Rub And Results In The Back Hatch Glass Breaking And Even Further Damage To The Paint And Body Of The Vehicle. toyota Has Shown A They Can Not Be Trusted To Fulfill Their Obligation To New Car Customers.

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

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

I Have A New 2013 toyota highlander. During A Heavy Rain Or Car Wash Water Enters The Cabin Around From The Center Post Where The Seatbelt Retracts. The Dealer Determined That There Is Bad Weld At One Of The Roof Seams And The Water Is Leaking Down Through The Center Post. The Vehicle Is Currently At The Dealer While They Try And Figure Out How To Make The Repair. My Concern Is That This Defect May Also Affect The Structural Integrity Of The Vehicle During A Crash. I Am Also Concerned That Even After The Repair It May Be Possible That Small Traces Of Water Are Still Entering The Vehicle But Aren’t Visible As It May Be Hidden By Interior Trim. Over Time This May Cause Rust. Should I Be Concerned About This Defect? *tr

The Shop Informed Me That Stae Farm Would Not Allow Them To Install A New Bumper Since My Vehicle Has 10,753 Miles On It. State Farm Forced Them To Source A Used Bumper, Even Though This Is Part Of The toyota Safety System. I Would Not Allow The Used Part To Be Installed.

Vehicle Was Proceeding Through An Intersection Under A Green Light. A Vehicle Traveling The Cross Road Proceeded Through Their Red Light And Impacted My Vehicle At Full Speed. The Result Was A “t-bone” Accident Into The Driver’s Side Door. The Force Of The Collision Was Such That My Vehicle Was Turned 90 Degrees. The Driver’s Head Impacted The Driver’s Side Window Shattering That Window. The Side Curtain Air Bag Did Not Deploy. Air Bags In The Other Vehicle Did Deploy. Had The Air Bag Operated Properly It Would Have Protected The Driver’s Head From Impacting And Shattering The Window. Since The Side Curtain Airbag Did Not Deploy In What Appears To Be An Obvious Situation, I Am Now Concerned That None Of The Airbags In That Vehicle Will Deploy Upon Impact And I Am Driving An Unsafe Vehicle.

When The Lift Gate Of My toyota highlander Was Closing I Heard A Clunk And Saw The Lift Arm Detach From The Body Of The Vehicle. I Took It To The Dealer And Was Told No Warranty Or Extended Warranty Would Cover The Damage. I Have 41,000 Miles On The Vehicle And The Platinum Extended Warranty. I Searched The Internet And Was Shocked To See So Many Lawsuits And Complaints Against toyota For This Design Flaw. I Have Spoken To The Regional toyota Office And The Most They Are Willing To Do Is 50% Of The Bill Which Would Leave Me To Pay $1700.00. Considering It Looks To Me That A $2 Bolt Is The Culprit, I Believe This Is Something That The Manufacturer Should Have Recalled Not Just Done A Silent Service Bulletin. If You Could Contact toyota And Tell Them They Should Do The Right Thing And Replace The Defective Lift Gate Because Of A Terrible Design, I Would Appreciate It. Thank You. *tr

This Event Happened When My toyota highlander 2012 (se V6 4wd) Was Parked And Turned Off. I Pressed The Remote Control Button To Automatically Open The Car Hatch Door. The Door Was Open And Stay Up. However, When I Was Putting Some Grocery Bags Inside The Car, The Door Came Down Without Any Announcement And Hitting My Head. I Had Head Ache For A Couple Of Days. After This Happened, The Back Door Does Not Stay Up. I Brought The Car To The Dealer Two Days After The Incident Happened. I Am Still Waiting For A Decision From toyota Customer Experience Center And Without My Car (3 Weeks And Counting). I Am Claiming A Car Replacement From toyota. This Is The Fifth Incident With This Car (five Car Repairs By The Dealership Under toyota Guaranty) During Its First Year Of Ownership (a Brand New Car). Really Disappointed From toyota Car Quality. I Am Afraid That Next Time Would Be A Fatality Or Another Serious Injury With Irreversible Consequences. *tr

Over The Course Of A Few Weeks We Noticed A Significant Smell In Our Car. We Have Rubber Floormats, So Did Not Notice That There Was A Drainage Problem In Our A/c Condenser. The Blockage Caused Drainage To Back Up Into The Body Of Our Vehicle And Mold Started To Grow All Over The Inside Of The Vehicle On The Carpet Underneath The Rubber Floormats. We Later Learned That The Blockage Was Caused By A Spider Web In The A/c Condenser Drainage Tube. I Took The Car To The Dealer And They Called toyota And Learned It Would Not Be Covered Under My Extended toyota Care Warranty And Any Costs Would Have To Be Paid Out Of Pocket. I Just Learned That Similar Model Year toyota Vehicles, Including The Avalon And Camry, Are Under Recall Due To Problems That Result From Spider Webs Blocking The A/c Condenser Drainage Tube. This Is Clearly A Design Defect That Covers More Than Just The Avalon And Camry Models, But The Recall Did Not Cover My highlander. We Have An Infant Son And The Growth Of Mold Could Have Severely Impacted His Health And Breathing. *tr

Power Liftgate On 2012 toyota highlander Fails To Full Close And Latch. 4 Years Old Now, Problem Began 2 Years Ago At 12,000 Miles, And Now 1 Year Past 3/36 Warranty And 47,000 Miles. Liftgate Has Been Completely Manual For Last 1-1/2 Years. Using Buttons To Close Power Liftgate Results In Left Side Where Motor Is To Be Close To Closed, While Right Side Has An Inch Gap To D-pillar. No Other Reason For Me To Go To Dealership, So I Haven’t Scheduled An Appointment. Finally Took It In June 6, 2016. Over Past 2 Years Dealer Service Described Solution As Simple Adjustment. Have Asked At Least Twice “are There Any Recalls Or Service Bulletins For My highlander?” Answer Is Always No, Including Day I Took It For “simple Adjustment”. However Recent Research Finds Two Recalls And Multiple Service Bulletins For 2008-2012 highlanders. If They Have Had Issues With Power Liftgates Since 2008, Why Is There No Recall On This? Potential Cause Is Powerful Motor Pulls Too Hard And Bends Hinges. New Design Uses Pair Of Power Struts To Pull Evenly. Estimate Approaches $600 For New Hinges And Other Parts ($253+tax), Paint, And Labor. Already Paid $100+tax To Diagnose This Issue, Which Took All Of 15 Minutes, Leading Me To Believe They Already Knew About This Issue, And Lied About Recalls And Bulletins. My Wife’s 2014 Rav4 Had 1 Of 2 Struts Replaced, And Other Issues Reported On Newer highlanders. Would Like toyota To Fix This Known Issue Without Further Cost.

Liftgate Operates Erratically, Not Staying Open When Button Is Pushed. Sometimes It Opens All The Way, Only To Close Immediately. Most Times It Starts To Open Partially Then Closes. Twice It Opened While Driving. Most Troubling Is Once It Started To Close Down On Me While I Was Getting Things Out Of The Trunk Area. I Would Think, For Safety Reasons, There Should Be Some Type Of Sensor. Is That Not The Case With My highlander? This Has Been Happening Periodically For About Six Months.

toyota Has Issued A Tsb For Warping Hinges For The Power Rear Hatch. The Hatch Eventually Will Not Close Properly Or At All. This Is Mainly Due To The Motor Putting Too Much Pressure On The Drivers Side Hinge. This Is Happening To All highlander Right Now With Power Open Close Features. Even The Ones With The New Design Hinges. toyota Is Also Saying That They Will Not Cover These Hinges Out Of Warranty. Mine Are Being Replaced Right Now. But The 2012 highlander Rental I Have Right Now Has The Same Issue. And This One Would Not Be Included In The Tsb Since It Has The New Hinges. I Am Worried That Down The Road This Hatch Will Open At High Speeds On The Highway Or Anywhere.. How Would You Know Sometimes That The Hatch Did Not Close? I Had To Put A Accident Date Above To File. There Is No Accident, I Am Trying To Prevent One. *tr

The Drivers Sun Visor Has 2 Stop Points. One Is Supposed To Be Fully Upright In The Recess Of The Head Liner. The Stop Point Has Moved So That The Upper Most Point The Visor Will Go Is About 10% Below Level And Right In The Line Of Sight Of The Driver. This Causes An Unsafe Condition In That The Driver Can Not See The Road Or Stop Lights. I Have Run A Red Light Because I Can Not See It. I Have Looked On All The Websites And This Is A Common Problem For toyota. Not Only On The highlander But On Several Other Models. There Needs To Be A Recall For What Ever Is Causing That Stop Point To “droop”. The Visor Can Not Be Taken Apart And toyota Wants $200 To Replace The Thing.

The Tailgate Hatch Was Unable To Open By Electronic Push Bottom Or Manually. Seeing The toyota Dealership The Cause Was A Faulty Engineering Design To The Tailgate Bytoyota. The Hinge Mechanics To Open The Rear Hatch Due To The Weight Of The Door And Use Cause Aligment Issues And Therefore, The Gate Or Window Cannot Open Properly. To Fix Properly A New Door And Hinge System Were Put On With No Guarantees That It Won’t Happen Again. A Very Expensive Fix By The Owner. Looking Into This Problem Many Consumers With This highlander Have Experienced The Same Problem. toyota Has Reengineered Its Newer Models To Correct The Problem. In An Emergency To Get People Out Of The 3rd Row Seat With The Door Stuck Is A Safety Issue. toyota Should Have A Recall To Fix The Problem As Well As Reimburse The Owners Who Have Had To Deal With These Out Of Pocket Expenses. *tr

Accident Occurred In Southbound Lane Of I-95 At The Dillon, Sc Exit On 6/14/14.

When The Service Manager From Copeland toyota In Brockton, Ma And I Looked At The Trunk Hinges Together It Was Clear That The Trunk Not Closing Was A Direct Result Of The Way That The highlander Was Manufactured Versus Due To Any Fault Of Our Own. This Issue Has Left My Children And I With A Drained Battery On More Than One Occasion, Which Is Not Only Inconvenient But A Safety Issue Given The Risks Involved With Being Stranded In Unfamiliar Towns. The Malfunction And Inoperability Of Our Trunk Door Leaves My Family At Risk Of Danger. However, I Was Quoted $3,600 To Repair This Issue By A Third Party Body Shop That Copeland toyota Uses. However, The Repair Expenses Should Not Be Paid By My Family But Rather toyota Since The Issue Is A Direct Result Of Faulty Manufacturing. To This Point, I Recognize That I Am Not Alone, There Are Several Videos And Endless Complaints Of Several toyota highlanders With The Same Issue (newer Models As Well). Here Are A Few Videos That You Can See For Yourself Via Youtube: Https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9z7eophqr0s I Would Like To Recommend That Owners Of toyota highlanders Be Contacted To Remedy This Issue.

In Late 2012, toyota Issued A Tsb Related To The Rear Power Lift Gate. Instructions Were To Replace The Hinges, Motor Unit, Etc… If Evidence Of Failure. Limitations Were 3 Yr 36,000 Mile Warranty. Explanations From The Dealer Were That The Hinges For The Back Hatch Were Under Manufactured For The Weight Of The Door Causing Them To Twist/warp And Pull Away From The Door And/or Frame. This Also Created Undue Stress On The Motor Assembly Unit Often Times Leading To Failure. I Had Service Performed In Early 2013 As Recommended By The Tsb. I Am Currently Experiencing The Identical Issues As Stated Above But Worse. The Door No Longer Operates By Using The Power Lift Feature On The Key Fob. The Door Is Again Warped Causing The Grinding And Clicking Noises When You Open It Manually. The Motor Has Failed And I Am Afraid My Actual Door Is Warped. I Have Spoken To My Dealer And Have Been Told That The Work Was Completed And That There Was Nothing Else They Could Do For Me. This In Spite Of The Fact That The Repairs Have Been Proven To Be Less Than Effective. I Do Not Feel This Is A Car Mileage Issue. It Is Simply A Manufacturing Error That Has Yet To Be Resolved. toyota Failed To Issue A Recall On This Problem. After Researching My Problem I Have Found That There Have Been Very Large Class Action Law Suits Related To This Very Issue. Many Times These Doors Are Not Closing At All Creating A Potentially Very Dangerous Safety Issue.

Vehicle Had An Unintentional Braking Incident Related To The Factory Safety Systems Which Caused Property Damage. Of Concern Is That According To The Manufacturer Who Read The Edr, There Was No Recorded Event Therefore They Are Denying That An Unintentional Braking Event Occurred. I Was Not Present At The Dealership When They Downloaded The Data However They Left A Thumb Drive In The Car Which Allegedly Contains The Data They Pulled From The Car. When The Event Occurred, The Car Was On The Track Of An Automatic Car Wash Being Pushed Along By Rollers Under The Wheels While In Neutral. The Speed Was Likely 2-3 Mph. When The Front Of The Vehicle Went Under A Curtain Of Swaying Cloth Strips, Alarms Went Off In The Vehicle, Large Illuminated Letters That Said Brake Appeared In The Instrument Display, It Braked By Itself Causing It To Come Off Of The Track Rollers And The Conveyer Pulled The Vehicle Behind Into The Rear Of My Vehicle Causing Damage To Both Vehicles. The Owners Manual Lists Automatic Car Wash As A Situation When The System May Activate (along With Passing Other Vehicles, Going Under Highway Signs And About 20 Other Common Everyday Situations Where One Would Be Unable To Deactivate The Systems Prior To The Situation). The Owners Manual Does Not Tell You To Disable The System When In An Automatic Car Wash. toyota Denies Any Liability Due To The Edr Not Recording The Event Although They Identified That It Would And Should Have If It Occurred. There Clearly Is A Problem With The Edr Recording Properly If It Is Not Recording What It Is Supposed To. The Data On The Thumb Drive Is Available Upon Request. The Dealer Identified When The Claim Was Filed That toyota Has A Unit Dedicated Specifically To Unintentional Braking, Same As They Do For The Unintentional Acceleration Problems Their Vehicles Experienced So Clearly They Are Aware Of Potential Problems. *tr
