2010 Toyota Highlander Hybrid Owner Comments

problem #3

Highlander Hybrid

  • 81,000 miles


While driving down a road without warning one of the ignition coils failed causing the engine and the car to immediately stop in traffic. Fortunately, we were on a rural road and going less than 30 mph, but on a freeway at speed we would have been in an extremely dangerous situation. The Highlander hybrid unlike most cars will not run at all with an ignition coil failure. Thus, there is a risk of a sudden loss of power. The Toyota dealer was unable to offer any explanation other than thee things happen. The vehicle had only 80,000 miles, had been maintained by Toyota dealers on a regular basis and is five years old. I have been driving for 58 years and have never experienced an ignition coil failure.
