problem #4

Highlander XLE 3.5L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 2,000 miles

I wanted to change lane by accelerating quickly from 60m/hr to 70m/hr but noticed the engine stalled and the car slowed down almost to zero miles/ hr. I was really scared the car behind me will crash on me and my family. I really thought there was no engine oil.

AC started smelling a foul smell and the engine lazily recovered. I was scared through out my trip.

Highlander XLE AWD

  • Automatic transmission
  • 2,400 miles

I bought this car three weeks ago, the car running good I'm happy. On the new year, I am on the freeway, transmission slips and car shaking. I got scared, however I check out what's happening. I thought maybe oil is low but everything is OK. I'm was so mad my new car messed up.

Then I call the road assistance, the guy is nice and called them to tow the vehicle, they send tow truck in 40 min. It's good tho I like their tow service. Now next day I called Toyota dealership, they said it takes 2 days to find out what happened. Now they provide me a rental car, a Prius, I hate small cars.

Hey everyone, you know that when you go to dealership buying a new car they are very nice to you. Once you got the car, after few weeks anything happen to the car these people are so rude. I am so pissed, happy New Years guys, peace.

Well, one week after purchase, the transmission had problems. It would slip out of gear around 40mph and slam back into gear jerking the car. Longo is fixing the problem so we will see.
