Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2003 Toyota Highlander Owner Comments

problem #1

Sep 042003

(reported on)

Highlander Limited

  • 5 miles


Static noise is coming from the stereo, and the pitch rises when I accelerate. Contacted Toyota customer server who escalated to CSM at dealership who said it was a problem with all limited model Highlanders but not with lower end models. (doesn't make sense). She could not help so it was escalated to the Dist Mgr. who said the same thing as the CSM and that he couldn't do anything to resolve the problem and that he was sorry, Toyota had no fix for the problem. Called him back the next day and said sorry isn't good enough, that a new car should not be having this problem and if it were his new car he wouldn't accept it either. Told him to work it out with JBL and that he shouldn't just tell his customer's "SORRY", and that I would take it to arbitration to have it resolved.

You don't go out and buy an expensive car to be told that you have to live with its inherent flaws.
