TOYOTA HIGHLANDER HYBRID 2008 car safety problem was reported on Feb 15, 2010.TOYOTA HIGHLANDER HYBRID 2008, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with POWER TRAIN . 2008 toyota highlander hybrid 4wd - the antiskid mechanism for ice is very effective but creates a dangerous situation when in snow. on this model, there is no manual override. i live in rural north dakota and blowing snow or rural roads are a part of life here. this is the second time that i got stuck in a minor drift on the road but in temperature of double digit below wind chills. when the problem occurs is when the car sense wheel slippage. this turns all power off to the wheels. 'flooring the pedal" results in no revving of the engine. (this may be a problem only on the hybrid, i am not sure.) as the power gets turned off, it becomes impossible to 'rock' the vehicle out of the drift. the first time this happened, i thought that i broke the vehicle as it was like the car was off. nothing happens when depressing the gas pedal. i needed to shovel completely so there was no wheel slippage. yesterday, it created a dangerous situation with the elements and the car not receiving power to the wheels. i did an internet search when this happened the first time and found others have had similar problems. one person described the vehicle when stuck in snow as "a gigantic boat anchor." i called my local toyota dealer and then the '800 number' for toyota customer service and did not get anywhere. i think the safety solution is a manual override switch. *tr.Mileage was 40000 miles.

TOYOTA HIGHLANDER HYBRID 2008 car safety problem was reported on Oct 20, 2009.TOYOTA HIGHLANDER HYBRID 2008, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES, ELECTRIC . i was driving on the freeway, with small child in back, and all of a sudden the imminent danger warning lights came on. they stated stop the car in the nearest safe area and call dealer. i feared back to an acceleration issue in 1985 with an older car and looked for a less crowded area to pull over. i was in traffic and that was not possible. i phoned the nearest dealer, they could not tell me what was going to happen other than i needed to get there or pull over and stop. i was less than 15 miles away so i chose to try and get there since i was able to slow the car with breaks. i arrived at the dealer and sat 3 hours before i had any detail, with my two year old. they could not locate the problem. they escalated the issue up the toyota service levels. finally, they came back that there was a small (hairline)break fluid leak in the car and that part would need to be replaced. i was just out of warranty at 41,000 miles and i would have to pay the part and labor to install. after 5 hours, they gave me a ride home and did not offer a rental car. the details i received back were very vague and to this day i really don't know what caused the issue but i had to pay for an expensive repair, after many conversations about the issue - toyota agreed to pay for the part $1500 but i was responsible for labor $600. i was told that they may have paid for all the repair (a year ago) but the floor mat issue was costing them so much money they were not paying for labor any longer. i feel a repair that was not common and not caused my driving or lack of proper maintenance. they called it a fluke and that is evidenced by the only place they could find the part was in cincinnati, ohio when i live in ca. it took more than a week for the part to arrive and i was without my car for three weeks as i had no way to get back there. they did not offer up a rental car and my husband was out of town during that time. *tr.Mileage was 41000 miles.

TOYOTA HIGHLANDER HYBRID 2008 car safety problem was reported on June 27, 2013.TOYOTA HIGHLANDER HYBRID 2008, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . my wife and daughter were driving on a busy highway when they heard a "pop" noise from the engine. the car stalled on the road. by the grace of god, they were able to drift to the side and did not have an accident. next day, the dealer informed that the issue was with the hybrid system - the inversion part. the cost for repair would be $11,000! we live about an hour from our workplaces and thus put a good many miles on our car - the 125,000 miles on the car put the drivetrain out of warranty. we have had all recall services performed at the dealer, and kept regular maintenance. not once were we advised by toyota that the hybrid system was showing wear and may be in need of service. there was no indication (warning lights, etc.,) that the hybrid system needed attention - no fore warning at all prior to the incident. in doing research, we really got upset to find toyota had recalled 06 and 07 models for the very same hybrid issue. we also noticed there are many people with complaints on the same issue in various online forums. to cap it off -- after the dealer told us the repair bill is $11,000, we were advised to discuss with a toyota case manager. we did and their offer? $1,500 toward a new toyota purchase. we were highly frustrated by this response. we feel they are well aware of the problem and should provide better warnings to users and better resolutions to the problem - and recall all effected hybrids! *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 125200 miles.

TOYOTA HIGHLANDER HYBRID 2008 car safety problem was reported on July 07, 2013.TOYOTA HIGHLANDER HYBRID 2008, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . we had just passed through a tollbooth on a freeway and were accelerating to merge with traffic when the car shuddered and slowed and steering became difficult. a number of warning lights came on telling us to stop driving the car immediately and to call the dealership. there were three warning lights which were something like: 'check hybrid system', 'check brakes' and 'check vsc'. we were close to the median and were luckily able to pull off into it and turned off the car. when we turned it back on the car would not move forward or backward and we had to have it towed home. we have since had it towed to the toyota dealership and they have told us that we need a new inverter battery. we understand that toyota has had problems with this part in the past for the 2006 and 2007 toyota highlanders and wanted to report the problem because ours is a 2008 toyota highlander. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 58000 miles.
