      Had a chevy impala for 16 years. Great car in many ways
      but did have a couple of major issues. Cried when I sold it.
      Must have spent 5 thousand keeping that thing running. Lol.

      I just saw this video, August 2019. I just bought a 2004 v6 with 108,000 miles. I bought it cash for 4800 super clean. I’m hoping this car will last me10years.

      My wife has a 2004 limited Highlander that’s been one of the most reliable cars ever! Unfortunately she now has her sights set on a new Rav4 so Heidi will soon be up for sale. 😕

      Toyota is getting sloppy. They are making even more ugly cars than before. I have always been fine with toyota not being the cutest on the streets since they used to make really solid cars. I think those days are over now though.

      Purchased a new 2018 Toyota Camry LE last year and the transmission jerks and shudders. Took it to the dealer and they checked it out and they said nothing wrong with it. It has an internal eight speed transmission. Will never buy a Toyota again. If you go to buy a new Toyota take it for a long test drive both city and highway and you will see what I am complaining about. Buyer beware!!

      Built on the Camry platform. Unfortunately Toyota is starting joint ventures with other manufacturers. Subaru, Mazda and now BMW.

      I have a major majorr major question and lease answer it in depth because Im sure many of us would want to have an expert answer on this. HOW dependable are an old car's - even if a Toyota, SAFETY systems, most importantly the airbag units. Firstly is the newer airbag system on latest cars that much evolved and therefore much better and how much and secondly if not better or lets say comparable, are the deployment sensors likely to hold up after all the years. What if the old airbag that hasn't seen action in ten years fails to deploy ? I will compare yours and scotttys answers

      My Mom has a 2003 V6 AWD. Always Garaged. Antique Gold. 39,000 mi. Grocery getter. Looks and drives like brand new. We bought a 2019 version. Quite an improvement but both are excellent vehicles.

      I feel like i am looking out my front window watching you. i live in Ogden UT. Anyway, i have a 2004 Highlander, 6cyl with 190,000 on it. I bought it from a dealer in Cincinnati about 3 or 4 yrs ago. It has run very well. In fact, I decided to get the timing belt changed two yrs ago and my mechanic said that it had never been changed...it should have been by the prev owner. I did it just because i had no record of it ever being changed. All I have had done, besides regular maint is put in a gasket seal on the engine block, new brakes and rotors. One thing that did go out was the control knob on the a/c would randomly switch to heat when the A/c was on. I read on the net this was common for those models, so I took out that modular piece and sent it to a guy in Boise ID to fix for 100.00. Several people advertise that repair. Works great now. One other thing is I had a new Kenwood audio system, blue tooth, with a backup camera installed. It gets pretty good mileage..not sure how much tho. I never take the o/d off and I am wondering how that works anyway. I wasnt aware of it for a long time. A little button under the shift knob. I am assuming that helps give me better acceleration?

      We’re looking at a 2005, two previous owners, but has a really great maintenance history.

      Should we hold out for a 2007?

      It's 2019. What about newer Toyota SUV'S?
      I was told to buy used Honda, Toyota or ? Dang.
      I forgot the 3rd one. Told not to buy American. Currently have a 2006 Saturn, under 100k. Will drive it till it dies. Only things wrong with it, flip down mirror on passenger side literally just fell off to the floor. The passenger door handle simply came off the car when I gave a friend a ride and they used the handle to close the door. You should have seen her face when she turned to me with that handle in her hand! Shock-guilt-????
      These two happened in one week.
      And last issue, just 3 to 4 months ago May 2019. The levers on each side of the hatchback stopped working. Bummer!
      The SUV runs like a top and interior leather and fabrics are perfect.
      Sure wish they still made them. I bought it with 20k on it. My Jeep died & my mechanic said they were retooling Jeeps and to stay away from. Like I said this was 2007. I had 3 Jeeps in a row. Prior to buying this Saturn Cue. Drove stick. Spoiled with automatic now. I tend to keep a vehicle till it dies.

      I have a 2001 Highlander with 300k miles. You should do a review on it. It has held up beautifully with regular maintenance. The original paint job still looks fantastic except for the passenger side which was in an accident 10 yrs ago and now the paint used by the repair shop has started peeling. Aside from that, it looks great and runs great. My mechanic is always amazed at how well it has held up.

      I have a 2005 highlander that I really love 145,000 miles. My sunroof stopped working years ago and i didnt want to pay 150$ just for the diagnosis. Hope it wasn’t something i could have fixed with a new fuse or so something. Any thoughts?

      I own 2005 Highlander..Greg Macke  is 200% right.  I am the original owner, and to appreciate a Highlander ya gotta drive one. They are heaven on earth..I just put a new battery in actually it was last year.  Think he was like 13 years old..Always say Toyota has Gold dust in their batteries.. My baby is kept outside, to my heartbreak there's no garage.

      I have a 2005 Highlander with 185,000 miles and it runs like new. There was one defect though - the temperature control knob stopped working at about 140,000 miles. Turned out that the soldered joint between the knob and the circuit board behind it broke off due to a design flaw. I know that other owners have had the same problem. But once fixed, there were no further problems. I haven't had to do anything else to the car other than routine maintenance.
