  • 60,500 miles


On my 2007 Toyota high lander the horn has stopped working I have no horn, when I press the horn button it does not sound the horn. I took it to the dealer and they check the horn and the dealer said it was working after I left the dealer it did not work, I askedthe service adviser and he said its an intermittent problem, , the horn still does not work I still have no working horn, something is grounding out in the steering column. I still have no working horn and the dealer cant find the problem.

I was driving and without any warning the car shutdown down, the car controls would not respond. The car continued till it lost momentum stopped, there was no/or very little braking and steering assistance/control. ** called Toyota and reported the problem, no assistance was provided*** the dashboard flashed lights, the vsc, AWD and other lights came on. Fyi - the car has been regularly maintained. There are numerous controls on these similar issues, vsc AWD ECU etc, but there seems to be no acknowledgement from Toyota.

During driving, abruptly without warning - the Highlander hybrid during driving, without warning, just went dead - car did not respond to driver control. The dashboard started flashing lights and the vsc check, AWD check, skid light, brake lights came on. The car, and power steering stopped responding to control. Upon contacting the dealers, everyone has given us a different reason, some don't even make sense.

Highlander 4-cyl

  • 68,000 miles
At 68,000 miles, my Toyota Highlander steering has become very loose. The steering wheel play is about two inches. Dealer tells me no recalls, but, after making hundreds of thousands of these units, one bad one is bound to occur. Unfortunately, I got the bad one. Dealer admits the vehicle has been very well taken care of. It is otherwise in excellent condition. I am 73 years old and drive very carefully. No accidents or abuse of the vehicle. No tickets or accidents in 55years. Why would a vehicle I have maintained well and taken care of suddenly develop a bad steering rack? especially since Toyota claims to have excellent reliability. I do not feel this vehicle is safe. It wonders allover the road.
