TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2008 car safety problem was reported on Jan 10, 2009.TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2008, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with TIRES . the bridgestone dueler h/l400 (not h/l 683 or 684 ii as listed in the choices for this tire on this web site!!!!!) tires on our 2008 toyota highlander are terribly unsafe in all conditions other than dry roads. they hydroplane in the rain, the rear end slides in all types of snowy conditions, causing the stability control to kick in and compensate, and they require frequent topping off of the air pressure, more so than any tire on any vehicle i've ever owned. this tire is getting terrible reviews on tirerack.com from current owners of mazda cx-9s and highlanders, and there isn't another tire on the market in the size i would need to replace it. it's an accident waiting to happen. our car is a v6 powered 4x4 suv we bought brand new 10 months ago. it has never driven well in snow, and despite the full-time 4-wheel drive, the vehicle behaves like a rear-drive truck with summer tires. the car severely fishtails and slides sideways, with the stability control fully cutting power and applying certain brakes in attempt to correct course. this happens at every turn and intersection. it's not only embarrassing, it's also wreaking havoc on my fuel economy as i do so much slipping in these tires, and i fear i will be going off the road or sliding into someone's property or vehicle some day without warning. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 500 miles.

TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2008 car safety problem was reported on May 20, 2008.TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2008, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with SEATS . the drivers seat does not rise up enough to see over the outside rearview mirror. also, the outside rearview mirror is large and continuous to the doorpost producing a visual block from windshield side of the doorpost to the far end of the outside mirror - about 16 inches. project this visual block-out across to a side-street intersection and it blocks the view of the entire side-street intersection and then some when traveling on a four lane street with a meridian in the middle. this is gross hazard for me and a vehicle in the intersection and for pedestrians. i had one collision when leaving a church parking lot onto a two lane rural road - traveling about 10 mph and the other vehicle was stopped in his lane. occurred in spring of 2008, about 5 pm - clear sunny day. i did not see his car - and the collision repair cost for his vehicle was $2,500 and for my repair cost was $4,000 +-. also, i have hit the low concrete divider with my left front tire - located under the freeway overpass when turning - this turn i have done 5 days a week for 5 years on the way to work with no problem until driving this 2008 highlander. also, i have had several near collisions with unseen vehicles and pedestrians. at night with vehicle behind me the light glare in the outside mirror is such that it is impossible to see over or around to see a side-street intersection. similar problems exist for the right outside mirror. to correct this problem the mirror needs to be lowered. also, a gap between the edge of the mirror and the doorpost would be a major great help. my height is 5'-5" not too short - by pushing hard with my left foot on the floorboard step i am able to see over the outside mirror and gain a reasonable view of the side-street intersection - but this movement takes away from my concentration and agility to drive on. *tr.Vehicle was involved in a crash.

TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2008 car safety problem was reported on Mar 06, 2008.TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2008, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with TIRES . my wife's 2008 toyota highlander sport with 19" rims came with bridgestone dueler h/l 400 tires. this tire happens to be the only tire made to fit this rim other than a toyota open country which apparently was standard on the hybrid model. we found this tire to be unfit and unsafe for a 4,500 lb vehicle of this scale. these tires hydroplan in rain from the moment they were new, and they handled terribly in any amount of snow, causing the rear of our 4wd vehicle to slide sideways when starting from simple stops. on several occasions we held our breath as we slid toward vehicles and property while the stability control system tried in vain to overcome the tire's very poor handling characteristics. if you go to tirerack.com you will see that this tire is rated extremely poorly by many many owners of highlanders and other cars that they came standard on. when i contacted toyota about this, they balked at me, and copped an attitude when they asked if i seriously thought toyota was going to replace my tires for me. these tires are unsafe for any vehicle which will travel in snow or rain. the final insult of these tires is that they were more than three-quarters worn out by 15,000 miles. we milked these tires until almost 30,000 miles since i refused to buy the same tire again, hoping some other manufacturer would come along with a similar sized tire - 245/55-19. that never happened, so i went with a 255 width tire and brought a well rated hankook. i could not be happier. i am just incensed that toyota colluded with bridgestone to install such terribly cheap and unsafe tires on thousands of highlanders, stranding all those owners to suffer the same instability issues as we did, while they did not work with any other tire vendors to supply this distinctive tire design. i am not sure who i hold in more contempt - bridgestone or toyota. i do not doubt that you could research vehicle crashes involving highlanders and find many caused by poor traction. *tw.Mileage was 1000 miles.

TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2008 car safety problem was reported on Jan 03, 2010.TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2008, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . i was driving in traffic and all of a sudden the information screen indicated there had been a brake malfunction and that i should pull over and call the dealer. i noticed the emergency brake light was lit so i thought i had somehow been driving with the emergency brake on. in kind of a panic i then pushed down the emergency brake about half way in an effort to turn it off. this caused the car to slow down precipitiously and we almost got into an accident. it turns out the problem was caused by corrosion in one of the wheel sensors that detects slippage. the emergency brake was never engaged. toyota should not illuminate that light when this happens to prevent drivers from thinking their emergency brake is engaged when infact it is not. toyota should recall the 2008 highlander to make sure there is no corrosion since the message on the informational display is so distracting to the driver..Mileage was 23000 miles.

TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2008 car safety problem was reported on Jan 12, 2010.TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2008, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC . recently i was involved in a minor rear-end accident. the impact speed was approx 10-15 mph and light to moderate damage was done to my vehicle, which is a 2008 highlander. prior to this accident i noticed my anti-skid braking system activated at a point i would consider to be premature. this premature activation limits the braking power of the vehicle when it is needed. this problem was brought to the attention of south county toyota in costa mesa, ca and they stated the vehicle was operating to specification. i am still concerned about the issue and would like to have it evaluated by a toyota motors rep while i am present. i do believe this premature activation of the anti-skid system was a contributing factor in my recent accident and it may have been prevented if the full braking power was available. at the time of the accident the streets were dry and it had not rained in several weeks. the vehicle suffered moderate front end damage which has since been repaired. toyota was notified of the accident and they have failed to correct the issue or admit there is anything wrong with the vehicle. as of right now i can duplicate the brake fade/ issue 100% of the time. *tr.Vehicle was involved in a crash.

TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2008 car safety problem was reported on July 04, 2010.TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2008, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with SEAT BELTS . during a recent road trip visiting family, my son was riding in the third row seat in our toyota highlander. shortly before arriving at his grandparents, he told me that he had become twisted in his seatbelt. as we were within 10 minutes of our destination, i told him that i would handle the situation when we arrived. a few minutes later he said that the belt was getting tighter and i asked him if i needed to stop and he said that would be a good idea. before i could get stopped (less that a block), he indicated that he was having trouble breathing. when i looked back, i was startled to find that the seat belt had become wrapped around his neck and had ratcheted back in, pinning his neck back against the side of the car. even after stopping, i was unable to pulled the seat belt out to get it out from around my son's neck -- he was strangling in front of my eyes. fortunately, i was in a city with residents close by, one of which heard me screaming and running door to door, who brought out a kitchen knife to cut the belt and release my son. i realize that these ratchet-type seat belts are designed as a safety feature in the third row seat of many makes and models, however, feel that this design also presents a strangulation concern. in cases such as mine, there was no way to get the seat belt released and if this had occur while on rural roads or the interstate, the availability of a knife would have been more difficult to come by. i feel that either an emergency release button should be designed for the ratchet seat belts or consumers need to be aware of the potential for strangulation and advised to carry scissors for this possibility. i have voiced my concerns to toyota and they are replacing the seat belt free of charge, however, i feel that it is important that individuals be aware of this possibility and be prepared. *tr.Mileage was 57000 miles.

Toyota Highlander 2008 Service Brakes Review #10497997

TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2008 car safety problem was reported on Jan 10, 2009.TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2008, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES . the right front brake of my 2008 toyota highlander popped loudly when i backed up. it sounded and felt like the brake locked up. this problem seemed to have already existed since the day i purchased the brand-new vehicle in december 2008, and it got worse and worse. therefore, i took the vehicle to a toyota dealer for inspection and the they said, "there is nothing wrong with the brake. it is normal and is just that the break is shifting." however, i asked them why the popping sound "only" came from the right front brake. they avoided my question and did not answer. as my concerns over the brake grew more and more, i took my vehicle to the same dealer again, but they said, "my vehicle is out of warranty and i have to pay $45 to have it re-checked." i told them that when my vehicle was inspected for the problem the first time, it was still under warranty, and the problem never went away; instead, it became even worse. however, they still insisted that i had to pay in order to have it inspected again. i was so disappointed i left the dealership. at the time of this writing, the right front brake still makes a loud, annoying popping sound when i back up my vehicle, which makes me worry that the brake could malfunction anytime when i am on the road. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):JTEDS42A482.

TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2008 car safety problem was reported on Apr 08, 2013.TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2008, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ENGINE . i just became award of this: "t-sb-0201-11 from toyota that states "some vehicles equipped with 2gr-fe/fxe towing package engines may exhibit an oil seep from the engine oil cooler pipes." *tr this tsb affects my model year and i believe it also affects toyota and lexus vehicles going back to at least 2008-present. to me this is a major safety issue and this should be handled as a recall instead of a tsb due to the severity of the issue if/when the pipe breaks. the rupture of the oil line will cause the engine to seize thus increasing the risk of a crash with resulting injury and possible death. and there is the hazard to other motorists with oil on the roadway. compared to the recall for floor mats and accelerator issues, this issue, which can drain the oil from your engine very quickly, destroy the engine, and very possibly cause an accident should be of major concern to all. the toyota advice to check for slow oil drips around the rubber hose is unrealistic for the owner due to the location. and the schedule routine service interval is much too long to wait for such an significant inspection. nhtsa needs to compel toyota to replace all of the defective rubber engine oil cooler pipes with the newer metal ones that the tsb addresses. this directive should apply to all toyotas including already made replacements for which the owners have paid for. .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 59000 miles.

TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2008 car safety problem was reported on Sept 04, 2013.TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2008, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ENGINE . 2008 toyota highlander was taken to toyota dealer in november 2011 after receiving notice to have defective oil cooler hose checked. in september 2013 replacement oil cooler hose failed while on highway traveling at seventy miles per hour. oil was observed covering bottom of vehicle and film of oil on back of vehicle. the oil gauge indicated no oil in engine. i believe this resulted in a safety hazard from both inhaling fumes and potential fire hazard. vehicle was towed to toyota dealer and oil cooler hose replaced for second time in less than two years. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 128635 miles.

TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2008 car safety problem was reported on Sept 29, 2013.TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2008, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING . while sitting in a line of traffic on our way home from a 2 mile trip to the store, we noticed a hot oil smell. i said to my wife that someone needs to get their car in for service work, not knowing that we were this someone! this smell had not been present at home, on our trip to the store or when parked there. when i pulled into my garage, steam/smoke appeared to be coming from the hood. the dipstick showed very low oil. there had been no signs of an oil leak in the garage before, but, after arriving home i saw a big oil leak. i called the toyota dealership (1/2 mile from home) who told me to bring it up to see what was going on. by the time that i got there my car was making a sound making it obvious something very wrong. i pulled directly into the service bay. the mechanic checked the dipstick which showed absolutely no oil in my engine. he put it on the hoist, added oil, and restarted the engine. the oil poured out as fast as he had put it in. upon further inspection, he saw that the lower oil cooler lines had ruptured. my engine had been close to seizing. replacing these parts was very expensive, $437, but replacing my engine would have been much more expensive. more importantly was that the danger of a fire from the oil that was pouring out on the hot engine was not out of the question. while at the dealership, the mechanic pointed at a lexus and stated, "this is very interesting. that lexus suv is in here for the same problem, the oil cooler lines ruptured." he said that he would not be surprised to see this be a recall issue, as the new lines are designed differently without rubber fittings, and will not rupture. this would indicate to me that toyota has noticed a design flaw in the oil cooler lines that were in my highlander. i feel this oil cooler lines problem is an issue that needs to be researched as a possible toyota recall. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 108989 miles.

TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2008 car safety problem was reported on Oct 04, 2013.TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2008, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ENGINE . the vvt-i oil cooler hose burst resulting in a major engine oil spill in a residential driveway. the toyota dealership and toyota corporate headquarters refuse to assume responsibility for the defective part because the vehicle is outside the warranty period and because they claim there is no recall for this part on the highlander. this same vvt-i oil cooler hose has been recalled on 1.6 million us rav4's, camry's and other toyota models. not only could a total loss of engine oil cause catastrophic engine failure, this issue can also be considered a safety concern. if engine oil were to have made contact with hot engine parts or hot exhaust piping, then a fire may have occurred which could have resulted in serious vehicular damage and loss of life. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 84000 miles.

TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2008 car safety problem was reported on Oct 15, 2013.TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2008, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with STRUCTURE:BODY . driver door lock mechanism has stopped working with the remote, that is a nuisance, not a safety issue but, recently i had difficulty manually unlocking the driver's door and for 1 - 2 minutes was not able to unlock the door to exit the vehicle. i was trying to manually unlock the door (the power lock mechanism quit working) but the door lock was jammed such that i could not get the door unlocked. i tried pushing the electric door lock button to try to unjam the mechanism and eventually that worked and i was able to manually unlock the door and exit the vehicle. this is clearly a safety issue because if the vehicle was on fire i may not be able to get out. a brief search online showed that this is a very prevalent issue with toyota vehicles. toyota should be forced to remedy the situation and a recall should be implemented to make toyota fix the flawed vehicles they have sold. i will go see a dealer in the next day or two to give them the chance to do the right thing and fix it free of charge but i imagine that will only get me an increased blood pressure. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 89900 miles.

TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2008 car safety problem was reported on Jan 15, 2008.TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2008, manufactured by Toyota Motor Corporation had a problem with SEAT BELTS . i believe there is a manufacturing flaw in the 2008 toyota highlander seat belts. when i initially purchased my highlander (new), there was a child safety seat in the rear passenger-side seat, which used the latch system for installation (did not require use of seat belt). when i first went to install a booster seat in that position, which would require the seat belt to be used, the seat belt did not work (could not extend belt, would not retract, etc.). the belt had never been used and does not work. i have filed several complaints with toyota, but they said they would not cover the replacement of my seat belt, because i was outside of my warranty time (# of miles). first, the belt had never been used (because a child safety seat had always been in that position since i purchased the vehicle). second, the # of miles driven has no direct correlation to how often a rear seat belt is used. it may have a direct correlation to how often the driver's belt is used, but none of the other positions. now, the other side rear seat belt is starting to have problems...oftentimes it does not retract properly/gets locked when it shouldn't, etc. the front belts also lock-up very easily and are hard to get unlocked once locked. i believe there to be a flaw in the manufacturing/components of these belts and feel toyota should cover replacing them. this is a safety issue!!! *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Toyota Highlander 2008 problem was reported in NEW HILL, NC.

TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2008 car safety problem was reported on May 16, 2014.TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2008, manufactured by Toyota Motor Corporation had a problem with ENGINE . toyota's t-sb-0201-1 should trigger a recall!! my wife was driving her '08 highlander, with 2 co-worker passengers, to a funeral. on 95n in danvers, ma, a motor biker pulled alongside & flagged my wife to pull over asap as there was smoke coming from the engine compartment and under the car. after stopping the car & waiting for the smoke to dissipate,he checked & found there was no longer any oil in the engine, the oil had emptied from the engine the last few miles while on the highway. i arrived later that morning to investigate, to discover that the oil was below the dipstick. the bottom of the engine & entire underside of the vehicle, including the exhaust system, spare tire, wheel wells, right wheels & tires & rear liftgate were coated in engine oil. the smoke apparently was from oil splashing onto the hot exhaust system, & vaporizing due to the high temp, creating a potential fire hazard. we had the car towed to the nearest toyota dealership. they determined that an oil cooler line external to the engine - part of a towing option package the car has - had ruptured! the engine's oil had been pumped out by the oil pump. we have since discovered that toyota had issued a technical service bulletin - t-sb-0201-11 - in december 2011 which addressed "oil seepage" from this exact oil line. now we are $480 poorer, & we could have experienced a $10 k engine failure due to seizing, & possible injury or loss of life due to this. this tsb was never performed on our car as we had never seen spotting in our driveway from this leak. the new part installed was redesigned as solid metal tubing to fix the original rubber hose with clamps. instead of recalling all of the affected vehicles to replace this potential life taker, toyota simply swept it under the rug and only replaced them when someone saw a leak and only when they still were below their 36,000 mileage warranty. crazy! *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 107472 miles.
