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.

2006 Toyota Highlander Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 092006

Highlander 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 3,500 miles


- 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.
