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. Notes: The 2010 Highlander's rear liftgate thinks it's open when it's closed and then once it's actually open, you might not be able to shut it again. Remember folks, if your liftgate is stuck open for more than 4 hours, consult your mechanic.

2010 Toyota Highlander Owner Comments

Highlander 6-cyl

  • 50,225 miles


I was driving on M hwy into sedalia mo on Saturday afternoon, 4/5/14, when I heard a loud pop like a gunshot, and I looked up & saw that my moonroof shattered into a million pieces, but it stayed together like safety glass is supposed to. Tiny shards started to filter down but I was able to stop & close the sun visor to prevent other glass from falling down. There was no one in front of me that could have kicked up a rock, no explanation for the moonroof to suddenly shatter. We just purchased this car in February, & bought a certified Toyota platinum warranty at that time. The local dealership called for warranty approval & they were told Toyota does not cover glass and we would have to file with our insurance to pay for the repair. Thankfully I only have $50 deductible, but this should never have happened, unless it was a defect that Toyota should be responsible for.
