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.

2007 Toyota Highlander Owner Comments

The visor on the driver side "lost" it's spring and hangs down creating a distraction while driving.

Highlander 6-cyl

  • miles
I am writing concerning my 2007 Toyota Highlander sun visor. My driver side sun visor has fallen down, and I see no way to tighten it up. It appears the sun visor is too heavy for the rod it is suspended from. Currently, the visor has fallen to right in front of my line of vision which obstructed my view while driving on several occasions, which was rather frightening. This is definitely a safety hazard. I saw online where over 2.4 million Toyota owners have posted comments concerning their defective sun visors. How many more comments are needed before Toyota will issue a safety recall on these sun visors? I hope it will be sooner rather than later, and before there is a tragic accident.

The driver side sun visor has started to droop down, unable to be put in full upward position. This has been getting increasingly worse over the past few months. A website I visited for help suggested reporting it to NHTSA. It is a safety hazard because it hangs down at forehead level when driving and causes a serious distraction. The website contained numerous complaints of other Highlander owners for the same problem and indicated that replacing it for several hundred dollars does not prevent a frequent recurrence of the problem. On the 2007 model, a lighted mirror is the only equipment contained in the visor itself.

Driver side sun visor dropped into field of vision. Dealer says this happens a lot with Highlander models. Visor will not stay up or down but rests in between, which defeats its intended use and interferes with driver vision. Dealer refused to repair as defect.

The driver's side sun visor drops and remains down at all times preventing driver full visability. The mechanism to keep the sun visor propped against car ceiling has failed.
