2004 Toyota Highlander Owner Comments

problem #3

Highlander 6-cyl

  • 141,000 miles


As I exited the freeway I took my foot off the accelerator and applied the brake. The car accelerated and did not slow down. I crossed both lanes of the street and I turned the car to the right. The wheels of the left side of the car hit the curb and the front and rear wheels on the left side of the car broke off. Then, the car went over the curb and hit the state sign with the left front of the car. The car got stuck in deep mulch from recent landscaping and came to a stop.

Identical to complaint #10114548 my event happened January 6, 2005 with less than 10,000 miles on vehicle. Now, at 35,750 miles, I have O2 sensor problems on a routine basis(3rd sensor on order from dealer right now). I am very concerned that these problems will continue past warranty, I have little faith in this vehicles safety and performance -every day I cross my fingers that nothing else goes "brakes" while driving with my 2 small children. This needs to be investigated.
