About Toyota Highlander

A pioneering vehicle in many ways, Toyota Highlander, also known as the Toyota Kluger, has been produced by a renowned Japanese automotive manufacturer Toyota Motor Corporation since 2000 as a mid-size crossover Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV). Built based on the same chassis as used on the Toyota Camry, Toyota Highlander was introduced to compete against the Ford Explorer and Honda Pilot as one of the first car-based mid-size crossover SUV. As the counterpart of the more rugged, truck-based mid-size 4Runner, the Highlander has been Toyota's best-selling SUV until 2006. Until now, it has been manufactured through three generations. 
The second-generation Toyota Highlander was produced from October 2009 to November 2013 and made its debut at the 2007 Chicago Auto Show. It went on sale in the United States in July as a 2008 model. Base, Sport (SE replaced it in 2010) and Limited trim levels were available for the Highlander. During this generation, it was powered by a 2.7 L I4 rated at 187 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque and a 3.5 L V6 engine producing 270 horsepower and both engines sent power through either a 5-speed or a 6-speed automatic transmission. The current generation Toyota Highlander started its journey at the 2013 New York International Auto Show. Trim levels and powertrain get retained from the previous generation, but the refreshed 2017 Highlander appeared at the 2016 New York Auto Show has new XLE trim as well as new 8-speed automatic transmission.

Toyota Highlander Common Problems & Maintenance Tips

As a vehicle with SUV styling, plenty of versatility for hauling cargo and a third-row seat as well as more upscale interior furnishings, the Toyota Highlander has always been one of the better values for shoppers. But as the accumulation of mileage, these common problems still deserve your extra attention: 
First, engine related issues are the most annoying and difficult for drivers since many drivers feel at loss about them even though they are clearly aware of that engine issues are serious enough to destroy a vehicle. Some experienced drivers are enthusiastic to offer some common signs about this issue to help others diagnose and solve problems as early as possible. Some said before the engine fails, it will first make some metallic sounds, misfire, stall or even have a problem in starting. Then gradually, its performance suffers so that decrease in power while acceleration and excessive oil consumption will arise. The lit Check Engine Light is actually the most obvious sign indicating that oil filter, air filter, spark plug, ignition coil, oxygen sensor and drive belt need a thorough inspection. 
Second, braking and suspension failures are also the trickiest problems that Toyota drivers have ever met during driving. Braking failure is often the main reason for a fatal accident so that you have to be too careful about it. Some signs about this issue include noisy and poorly responded brakes, vibrating brake pedal and score marked rotors, and the brake pad set, brake drum and brake disc are often the culprits. As for suspension failure, you need to pay more attention to the working condition of Highlander coil springs, sway bar bushing and ball joint. 
An effective and easy way to decrease the possibility of fatal accidents is to maintain some vulnerable auto parts in your Toyota Highlander routinely. For example, windshield wiper needs routine maintenance as it is often comprised of soft rubber but always works under adverse weather conditions such as heavy rains or snows, and it has to sway back and forth continuously to make sure the driving vision won't get blocked. For your comfortable and safe driving trip, not alone wiper blade, but seat belt, cabin air filter, door lock, headlight bulb and fog light bulb all should be on your routine maintenance list.
