Guide: 5=Perfect; 3=Good; 1=Poor
Pros: What do you like about your 2006 Toyota Highlander?
I have a 2006 Highlander Hybrid-one of the 1st if not the 1st sold in Canada. I like driving the Highlander, good family vehicle, space is good except for the 3rd row seat.
Cons: How would you improve your 2006 Toyota Highlander?
My vehicle is a Limited-Toyota really cheaped out-price was outrageous but I wanted the extra 2 seats, generally the finish of the vehicle is not what a Limited model should be. Service could be better. A couple of years ago the Highlander sat on the dealer lot while I fought with the dealer over a repair they didn't want to do under warranty-they only paid for part of the cost because I did research online and found out other people had the same complaint. I have complained about a popping noise that seems to come from the centre of the vehicle when stopping or starting from a stop in the winter before the car warms up-My 1st complaint about this was Nov 2006-still unresolved, at one point I was told it was the engine mount that was the problem. A common complaint is the acceleration when driving over a bump while braking-I have been told many times that this is normal-today I was told that this is how the ABS system works. Both high beam bulbs are distorted and burnt and the heat has damaged the lens covers-2 people a the dealership have said stated that they have never seen this happen before, but then they reversed their story and told us this is normal-that the bulbs do that when they need replacing.
2006 Toyota Highlander Review:
I don't know if it is the service dept. of the dealership I bought the vehicle from or Toyota in general, but when I spend this much on a vehicle, I would like to see some responsibility taken for defects and not be told repeatedly that these things are normal. While I like my vehicle, I have rated a 2 overall because of the attitude I have been getting. I am pretty confident that the above issues will one day become the subject of recall notices.
