TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2004 car safety problem was reported on Mar 06, 2004.TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with STRUCTURE:BODY . i have a 2004 toyota highlander. on my way to georgia on interstate 75, while going 70 miles per hour, i rolled down the back windows.the vehicle violently shook and the pressure inside was piercing to my ears, i felt like the back rear window was going to blow out. the vheicle shook so violenty, i had a very hard time keeping under control while i rolled up the windows it scared me so bad, i almost lost control of the vehicle. i requested that the dealer (courtesty toyota) put in wind breaks or vents, over the side windows so that i was able to roll down the windows and drive safely and the dealer refused my request. i told the dealer, that i believed this situation was a safety issue and they still refused my request. i asked to see the service manager and the service manager told me he was aware of the problem, that wind breaks "would not help" the situation. he said that if i would put down the front windows a five or six inches, i would not have the wind problem in the rear of the vehicle. i told him, i do not always want the front window open, when i am driving, sometimes, i would just like to have some air in the back. (i also said, suppose some child in the back seat suddenly decided to roll down the window while the mother was driving on the interstate). at interstate speeds you will loose control of the vehicle with the wind and the vehicle shaking so violently. the reason i chose the highlander was that the back windows opened. i take my dogs with me when i travel and they can get air while they are riding in the back.*ak.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 250 miles.

TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2004 car safety problem was reported on Jan 10, 2004.TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with AIR BAGS:FRONTAL . air bags failed to deploy. a nissan pathfinder cut in front of me and i crashed into him. i was driving about 50 mph when he suddenly veered into my land. i tried to brake, but there wasn't time and i hit the back of his pathfinder and then spun around and hit the guardrail. the seat belts exploded, but the airbags did not deploy, upon either impact. the firemen just shook their heads in disbelief and my car's damage (~$9000). my highlander was supposed to be back to me in 2-3 weeks, but it has been nine weeks and the car still isn't fixed due to back orders at toyota. the nuisance of the toyota backorders makes me very unsatisfied with toyota. the failure of the air bag to deploy is scary and makes me very leery of the highlander and decreases my faith in toyota, once i do get it back.

TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2004 car safety problem was reported on July 31, 2004.TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with STRUCTURE:BODY . the 1994 toyota highlander has a structural defect the can be very dangerous and at the very least unacceptable from a quality consumer standpoint. when the rear window is put down it creates a wind noise and vibration that is dangerous to the passengers and driver. it is hard to imagine that toyota could let this go on without a recall or at the very least a warning and a better solution than "open up the front windows before operating the back ones". after just one month of operation i am really questioning if i will ever own a toyota again.*ak.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 7 miles.

TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2004 car safety problem was reported on June 25, 2004.TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION . we purchased a 2004 v6/5 speed auto 2wd toyota highlander in june, 04. it has a hesitation problem which creates a safety hazard. it loses power for several seconds after decelerating and re- accelerating to change lanes or make left turns, thereby exposing a powerless, decelerating car to oncoming traffic. have taken the car to the dealer twice. they claim it is a design problem, they cannot fix. they say it occurs as a result of the adaptive learning algorithm in the engine/transmission package. check the edmonds town hall by searching for "hesitation" and you'll find it reported since 12/03 by highlander, camry, solara, lexus rx330 and lexus camry equivalent owners all having gotten no commitment by toyota to fix it. this is a safety hazard as described by the classical definitions. it occurs frequently (in most vehicles and in normal operation, and more than a few of the occurrences will expose the occupants to severe personal injury. toyota claims the hesitation is "normal" because all the highlanders on the lot do it--which only reinforces the high frequency estimate. for whatever reason, they are not addressing this issue with anything other than an offer to have a toyota rep confirm your car has it and then to take the issue to arbitration. its time for you to investigate, before serious injuries or deaths occur. if we can be of assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me. jim mullen. *ak *jb.Mileage was 1000 miles.

TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2004 car safety problem was reported on Aug 01, 2004.TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION . 2004 toyota highlander with approx. 11,000 miles. 6cyl. 2w/d i have noticed a slight but consistent hesitation between pressing the accelerator and actually accelerating. i recently experienced that when accellerating heavily, as to pass another car, the highlander actually seems to pause, and to even momentarily slow down instead of acellerating. and then it suddenly accelerates. this delay is greater than 1-2 seconds and is significantly noticable. this is not a situation where the vehicle is droping smoothly into a lower gear to accellerate. the first time it occured to me i thought for a moment that the transmission had fully disingaged or otherwise failed. i had time to briefly consider how i was going to get safely out of traffic & onto the shoulder before it suddenly accellerated. please understand, the engine in fact did rev in acceleration while the vehicle itself slowed before the transmission suddenly surged into connection at a high rpm. this is my wifes vehicle. she's described this "surging" before and i pretty much blew her off until it happened to me. no more. this is an accident waiting to happen. in the meantime toyota, or more accurately the mechanic at the toyota dealer, tells me they are aware of the issue as fairly common, but don't have a fix and have not entered a bulletin to their dealers. again, this is an accident waiting to happen.*ak.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 11000 miles.

Toyota Highlander 2004 Power Train Automatic Transmission Review #10090804

TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2004 car safety problem was reported on Sept 10, 2004.TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION . i have owned a 2004 toyota highlander v6 4-wd vehicle since july 10, 2004. about two weeks ago i noticed there was some hesitation upon acceleration and on occasion the vehicle seems to down shift for no apparent reason. this is extremely dangerous when making a left-hand turn against traffic without a turn arrow or pulling out into any kind of traffic. sometimes it will go - often times there is a 1-2 second delay. *ak i have also noticed on occasion that while driving on the highway, suddently the vehicle downshifts with no change in acceleration on the driver's part. this makes for a jumpy feel in what was originally a very smooth driving car. in addition, it is wreaking havoc on my mileage (am currently getting 17.1 mpg even on the highway). i can see these problems leading to accidents and i've had a couple of close calls already. i also have teenaged drivers and there is no way i can feel they are safe driving this vehicle. i have had the car in two times in the last week. i am told that the highlander has a "unique shift pattern" and the technician didn't notice any hesitation problems. upon leaving the dealership, i noticed hesitation right away. i suppose they are choosing to ignore these problems. the suggestion was that i speak to my salesman and maybe they would offer me a good deal on another model since i have just 2,000 miles on the highlander. what kind of solution is that? furthermore, i went to this dealer's website and found several low-mileage highlanders for sale. this leads me to believe they have had to satisfy other owners by trade as well. aside from that, nothing was done to rectify the problems..0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 1500 miles.

TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2004 car safety problem was reported on Mar 17, 2005.TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with SUSPENSION:AUTOMATIC STABILITY CONTROL (ASC) . on 3/17/05 i drove my toyota 2004 highlander, 2,025 mileage, onto a main street at about 5 mph. a beeping sounded, the slip indicator light blinked slightly, and horrible crunching and clanging sounds occured underneath the front of the vehicle. it felt like the front brakes locked up. i tried to slowly resume driving several times, but the car was inoperable and the dealer sent a tow truck. they said it was a problem within the vehicle stability control system which interacts with the yaw and steering angle sensors, and the brake system. there is also suppose to be a g-sensor according to toyota's web site glossary. (the dealer never heard of the g-sensor). they said it was a bad steering angle sensor and had seen this problem several times. the sensor was replaced at the dealership and since i've only driven it a few miles, i don't know if it's okay. what if the replacement sensor is also bad? i often drive in the mountains alone, and am extremely worried about it. i am retired and bought the vehicle for safety and security, relying on toyota's expertise, or so i thought! the vsc situation is very serious and should be a recall issue. i now wish i had bought a honda pilot. *ak.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 2025 miles.

TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2004 car safety problem was reported on May 13, 2005.TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION . i own a 2004 highlander limited, v6, 5-speed automatic. when decelerating and then accelerating, there is a 1 to 2 second hesitation before the car moves again. this happens every time. this inaction by the vehicle is a safety hazard, especially when merging onto a fast-moving freeway. note: this hesitation does not occur if you come to a complete stop. i did a web search to see if anyone else experienced the same problem, and i found a lot of complaints (you need to add "web search" to your "source" list below). so it's not just my vehicle. this design fault is evident on all toyotas with the 3.3 liter, 5-speed automatic. evidently the lexus es330 and rx330 have the same problem. i also have a friend with a 2004 sienna that has the same problem. when i took my car into the toyota dealership to complain, they said it was the electronically-controlled transmission, and that "it was designed that way." i asked about reprogramming the flash memory of the controller involved and they said there was no updated software, there was nothing they could do. so, i guess it's up to you to get toyota to do something. i see here on your site, that there have been a lot of other similar complaints. this is a repeatable, measurable system fault. just take a toyota highlander with a v6 out for a drive. then slow down a bit, then accelerate as you would normally. the car will hesitate. every time. now do this while you're merging onto a fast-moving freeway. when it hesitates, you'll do an "oh,?!@#$%" and accelerate harder, at which point the transmission will hesitate slightly again, then shift down. the engine will rev up and you'll roar out onto the freeway like an idiot. please. do something about this before someone gets hurt, if it hasn't happened already. *tr.Mileage was 200 miles.

TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2004 car safety problem was reported on Dec 26, 2007.TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with STEERING:RACK AND PINION:PINION SHAFT . i noticed a clunking noise and "sensation" in the steering wheel when traveling at a slow speed especially when turning corners or on a bumpy road. in december, 2007 i took the highlander to the dealer and was first told that it was not a problem and just needed some lubrication. when i questioned the service manager further about the possibility of it being dangerous, i was told that it "could be a problem and that the steering shaft should be changed". i was told that the column could "lock up", causing loss of steering. after further questioning, the dealership gave me a copy of the toyota technical service bulletin dated february 2006, obviously toyota was well aware of the possible danger, i was also told that it was not an unusual problem. they would fix the problem at a cost of $450 to me since the car was no longer under warranty. my warranty expired in may of 2007, almost a year after the technical service bulletin was issued. it appears that toyota purposely has not issued a recall in order to save money. those of us who own a 2004 highlander are now out of warranty and out of luck. since this is a potential danger and toyota was aware of the problem for well over a year, i believe that toyota should be responsible for all needed repairs and a recall issued. *tr.Mileage was 39000 miles.

TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2004 car safety problem was reported on Aug 25, 2008.TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES, ELECTRIC . we were traveling in the vehicle, approx. 20-25 mph when suddenly the right front brake locked for a few second, released and then about 10 seconds later, locked and released once again. it was as if we had slammed on the brakes as hard as possible, only on the right driver's side brake. when we took it to the dealer, the codes lead the technician to an open circuit on the abs actuator, however, the warranty company wouldn't fix or correct the problem because 1) they couldn't reduplicate the problem; and 2) the part in question is a small part within a $3,500 larger part, of which the entire $3,500 part would have to be replaced. they told us to wait until it happened again to bring it back to the dealership. approx. one month later, the vehicle did the same thing, however, it was on the freeway at approx. 70 mph. the impact was less hard as the speed wouldn't allow the brake to fully stop the vehicle. the warranty agent again denied resolving the problem because they couldn't duplicate it in their presence and the codes were deemed incomplete and therefore, no repair. i am concerned this might cause a serious accident and/or damage to my vehicle. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 63899 miles.

TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2004 car safety problem was reported on Apr 19, 2009.TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL . i am the owner of a 2004 toyota highlander 2wd. this vehicle is in excellent condition, low mileage (about 40,000) and has never been in an accident. on april 19, the vehicle stability control/anti-slip buzzer sounded. the icon lit on the dashboard, and the vehicle started to break as if the car was slipping. the road was dry, our speed was extremely low (about 15mph), and there was no reason for this to happen. thankfully, we were just out of our driveway and could turn safely around though the problem persisted. on april 20th, we phoned toyota of keene to make an appointment to bring in our vehicle. we weren't thrilled with the prospect of driving under these conditions, but figured if we kept to low speeds we should be able to make it safely. we took down the tow company┐s number just in case. on april 21st, my husband set out for the appointment for repair in keene. about 10 miles from home, the problem suddenly went away. the skid warning light went out and the vehicle stopped breaking automatically. my husband made it the rest of the way to toyota of keene without any issues. after a test drive, the technician stated, ┐that was the scariest test i've ever experienced,┐ as the problem had returned while he was on the road. but by the time he returned to the shop and hooked up the car to diagnostic computers, the problem had again ceased. toyota of keene has had my vehicle since april 21st, and has been unable to repair it or offer any solution to this issue. they claim that they can┐t repair it if they can┐t replicate the problem while the vehicle is hooked up to computers. though i understand this explanation, it does nothing for the safety of my family, as well as anyone else on the road. i contacted the toyota complaint center and they opened up a case number but were essentially useless in assisting me. i did some research on line and found a technical service bulletin as well as customer complaints about this very issue. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 40000 miles.

TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2004 car safety problem was reported on June 01, 2010.TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING:COOLING SYSTEM . the temperature control on my 2004 toyota highlander keeps switching by itself from hot to cold and hot again. i have to actually turn the ac on even when the outside air coming in is moderate because the temperature control will switch by itself to hot and i can't switch it off. this occurs every time i drive and more so when i go over a bump or make a turn. i turn the vent on for outside air, but the temperature control gets locked on to hot and i can't turn it off. i have called the dealer and they have said that it would cost around $1000.00 to fix it. they want to replace the whole control unit. i have read various forums of numerous owners having this same issue. it seems to be a problem with toyota not leaving enough slack in a ribbon cable with 3 connections that connect from the circuit board to the control knob. the wires break off from the soldering on the knob. this sounds like a known defect to me that toyota is aware of, but chooses to ignore. apparently a cheaper fix is to re-solder the cable, but they refused to do that. i think they should be fixing this for free. this is just another example of toyota ignoring known issues with their vehicles. *tr.Toyota Highlander 2004 problem was reported in CASTRO VALLEY, CA.

TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2004 car safety problem was reported on Dec 30, 2009.TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL . summary: on dec. 30, 2009, i experienced a malfunction in the electronic stability control system of my 2004 4cyl fwd toyota highlander suv. the malfunction is exactly of the nature described in the summary of findings following an odi investigation of malfunctions in the electronic stability control systems of 2003 toyota sequoia vehicles(nhtsa campaign id number 10v176000, nhtsa action number ea09006). complaint: the malfunction in my highlander occurred when the vehicle started forward at very low speed after having been backed out of a parking space. the vehicle subsequently hesitated and surged during acceleration and the brakes were automatically applied and released as if the vehicle were experiencing a skid. unlike the complaints considered in the odi investigation, however, the malfunction in my highlander did not self-correct. the vehicle was serviced the following day at acton toyota in littleton, ma, where the malfunction was corrected by resetting the on-board computer. the vehicle operated normally after the computer was reset. since acton toyota was unable to identify a cause for the malfunction in the electronic stability control system, i had them replace the steering angle sensor as a precautiion on january 6, 2010. action: based upon my experience, i think that a recall of 2004 4cyl fwd highlanders similar to that for 2003 sequoias should be undertaken..Mileage was 51249 miles.

TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2004 car safety problem was reported on Dec 15, 2010.TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with EXTERIOR LIGHTING . the lenses of the daytime running lamps/high beams have developed white, oval-shaped bubbling/melting marks of approximately 0.5 to 0.75 inches in diameter, in the center of the lenses, directly in front of the lamps. i first noticed this in december 2010 just prior to changing the original lamps (therefore the replacement lamps did not cause this problem). i reported this to toyota, case number 1012071480. toyota told me to take this up with the service department of a dealer. at the dealership, i was initially quoted a price of $988 to replace the assemblies. after discussion with the service manager and his follow-up with toyota, the price was lowered to $396 to pay only for labor, parts to be provided at no charge. i opted to not have this done for this price. possible safety issues: 1) damaged/melting lenses could impact the effectiveness of the high beams and/or the daytime running lamps; 2) heat that is hot enough to damage/melt the lenses could be a fire hazard; 3) damaged/melting lenses could be an indication of an electrical problem. i have digital photos taken in december 2010 showing the damaged/melting lenses that i have provided to toyota and would be pleased to provide to nhtsa. i have also retained the original lamps, and the car still has the damaged/melted lenses. *tr.Mileage was 83000 miles.

TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2004 car safety problem was reported on Jan 21, 2015.TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2004, manufactured by Toyota Motor Corporation had a problem with ENGINE . my car began overheating at 140k miles. took it to a mechanic and had the water pump and thermostat replaced. the car overheated again a week later. took it back to the mechanic and he told me the head gasket was blown and had to be replaced. when he went to replace the gasket he found that three head bolts were stripped on the block. the cylinder head bolts separating from lower part of engine block caused a coolant leak. this is obviously a manufacturing error. this car was bought brand new and has been driven by the sole owner. had oil changes every 3,000 miles and never had an issue before now. please place a recall for this defect. this is not the owners fault, nor should it be their responsibility. .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 140000 miles.

Toyota Highlander 2004 Engine Review #10777806

TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2004 car safety problem was reported on Sept 18, 2015.TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2004, manufactured by Toyota Motor Corporation had a problem with ENGINE . we have a vehicle with a 2.4liter/4 cylinger engine that is loosing oil at a rate of 1qrt per 1000 miles and now there is a coolant leak coming from the gasket seal between the engine block and head. there is no guage that tells you how much oil is missing until it's too late and the engine starts to over heat. both the oil and coolant is leaking on roads, parking lots and driveways, what we have found is that the bolts that are nearest the leak are stripped, they either stripped in assembly or flailed do to overheating of the block do to the engine block not having sufficient cooling because of a heavy foam pad that restricts air floe around the engine causing the head to flex and leak at the gasket seal based on online complaints there are hundreds, if not thousands of owners with this same problem. seems that some of these engines are having success by drilling, tapping and inserting new coils into the aluminum block, which may or may not be a permanent solution. it seems that toyota is aware of the problem and refuses to repair the damage. the most common suggested repair is to replace the motor and we assume that they problem will happen again since they have redesigned the problem.. replacement is at the owners cost for materials and labor at approx $6,000-$8,000..0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 150000 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):JTEDD21A940. Toyota Highlander 2004 problem was reported in SACRAMENTO, CA. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control.
