- the contact stated that 2006 Toyota Highlander lost power when he used the vehicle for towing. Weather conditions varied, road conditions were primarily icy, gravel, and dirt. The only way he could get the vehicle to move was by un-hitching the trailer. The dealer told the contact that this was the way the vehicle was designed, and it will lose power to protect the vehicle if the load was too heavy. The vehicle lost power at 3,500 miles and at 17,500 miles. There were no warning signs before or after power loss. The vehicle started up and drove normally once the trailer was unhitched. Ak the consumer was told the problem could not be duplicated, the vehicle was performing as it was designed to do. Updated 01/29/07.
