2005 Toyota Highlander Owner Comments

problem #1

Nov 092011


  • 100,500 miles


On 11/9/2011, while driving on interstate 80 near auburn, ca., the rear window on my 2005 Toyota Highlander spontaneously exploded/shattered. I took it to a Toyota dealer/bodyshop where they replaced the tempered glass at my expense ($468). They claimed they had never seen anything like it. Two weeks later on 11/28/2011, while driving on interstate 80 near rocklin, ca., the right rear passenger door window spontaneously exploded/shattered sending shards of glass into the vehicle and out. The car is getting repaired at my expense ($408). Toyota claims they know nothing about this type of problem. This is a safety hazard worthy of investigation. During the second incident, a passenger would have been severely injured had they been sitting next to the exploding glass. If the window had been the driver-side window, it would have caused a serious crash. As it was, the car behind me had to take evasive measures to avoid the flying glass. The fact that there has been 2 incidents within two weeks involving 2 separate oem glass suggests a possible defect.
