- good gas mileage, easy to handle
I just Love Toyota. I have owned 5 over the past 15years. My husband has owned two. Two of of the ones I have owned have been Highlanders. I can't complain about either one.

- Body and Interior Fit and Finish are great.
- Erratic Transmission, Sensitive Brakes, Vibrations in Steering Wheel
After 4 months of owning, here are the problems: 1. Excessive engine vibration transmitted through steering column, most pronounced at 1900 RPM. Observed in mostly lower gears when accelerating, but happens in all situations. Vibration sometimes very excessive, can feel vibration in floor, gas pedal, brake pedal, wiper and light controls. 2. Excessive front braking, front brakes grab, seem out of proportion with back. Too much pedal play before harsh braking response. Braking consistency varies. 3. Cold idle too high, 1950 RPM, transmission slams into gear. 4. Engine idle, loud resonance or �boominess�, growl in first gear, slow speeds. 5. Transmission erratic with inappropriate shifting. Transmission always shifting up to 5th gear at slow speeds, pushing car forward faster when not desired, car is pushed forward faster just before a full stop. Car will not downshift when appropriate. Taking foot off gas, car maintains speed (like on cruise control), Car will drive for a mile without gas pedal input, stuck in 5th gear at 900 RPM. Always fighting to slow vehicle through excessive braking. Car is easier to stop if put in Neutral. Pulling into driveway at Home. At 3 MPH, 900 RPM, car is still down-shifting from 4th, to 3rd, to 2nd, to 1st. Needs excessive braking to keep car from surging forward.
Bottom Line: the biggest issue with this truck is the Tranmission. Toyota has had widespread problems here. It introduced a software upgrade in 2006, but it only improved slightly. Don't buy this truck. I had a Toyota Field Rep look at these problems and was told they can't do anything about it....read morehide
