How many miles on your Highlander?

Let's see who has the most miles, and how many averages miles are on our HL's.

Create a list like this:

1) Year and Model
2) Mileage
3) Any mechanical problems

I'll start:

1) 2003 Highlander V6 Limited
2) 170,000 Miles
3) Temperature knob failed (easy fix), Some howling sounds. Overall A+ Car!

'03 Highlander V6 Limited 4WD, (0 to 175,548 Miles) SOLD (So sad to see it go! )

'02 Dodge Durango SLT (140,XXX Miles) Third Row Seating, Leather Interior

Yes, I know. The first two years I had the car I put on 50,000 per year. The interior is just starting to catch up with itself. Otherwise perfect car in my opinion!

Please post your fix! I'm having the same issue with mine! I'm sure other members are having the same issue as well.

2005 V6 2WD
83k miles
Purchased new in Jun '05. General maintenance only and no problems except the steering column clunk that just appeared.


Update: Aug 22, 2011
-------------------------
Turned over 110k this month and still no issues. I'm overdue for a timing belt/water pump change. Will probably get it to the dealer for that and all of the accessory belts before the end of the year. I'll probably tackle the spark plugs myself. Funny... I don't notice the steering clunk I did a few years back.

2002
2.4 ltr 4 cyl
103,000

new rotors on front
1 downstream O2 sensor

I love my Highlander and would buy another for sure, probably will. That is when this one wears out which will probably be a while, its still looks new inside and out.

02 Highlander v6 at 140000 miles. Other then tires/brakes/fluid changes, the only problem i've had was dirty idle control valve. Most reliable vehicle I've owned.

2002 Highlander V6 2wd
108,000
replaced O2 sensor thats about it

yet to do: replace timing belts and factory waterpump (just because it has over 100,000 miles), change the original spark plugs (there is hardly any electrode left) and find out why my passenger side rear window wont go down (nephew got sick and didnt roll down the window in time.. I think some of that got down in the door gumming/rusting the mechanism.. Ewwwww) LOL

02 Highlander 2wd 3.0L V6
Mobil 1 synthetic
Silverstar headlights
