Hello all, new to this forum. Have been a continuous Toyota owner since 1992. Currently have 06 Tacoma 4 cyl. & just bought a 07 Highlander v6 awd. Have always loved my Toyotas!!! May not be able to help with problems, have had almost none from my vehicles.

USA 07 HL in Tucson

I won't pick up my Highlander 'til tomorrow, Monday, but I thought I'd intro myself.


I bought an 07, 207k miles, normal 3.3 engine and not awd. Pretty nice, the seller is the 1st owner and got in the habit of regular maintenance and his wife kept it really clean. Seats had covers on them since new. It's pretty nice, tho I will probably have Maico do a paint job, clear coat is peeling and ugly.



I got it to haul my jetski and occasionally visiting family. I have a Prius, too, but purposefully elected to get as simple a truck as I could find. Mileage on Toyotas is a secondary concern, their quality is so good. Prius is going away this week.



I ordered the factory manual on CD this morning from Rock auto. Before someone says "copyright infringement" it is a licensed copy. Got it so I can load into my Ipad. (edited to remove prohibited material, sorry!)



The front brake rotors are badly warped, so I ordered a kit for that, the heavy duty one for tow vehicles. I'll be around and try to help as possible.

Greetings from S.W. Minnesota

I am retired and my wife and I have owned 2 Hylanders and have been very satisfied.

I tend to be mechanically inclined and prefer to work outside. Usually have several fixit projects going all the time. Like doing maintenance on various cars and trucks in addition to driving.
Miss the old days when vehicles were easier to work on but do like the reliability factors now. My biggest irritation is finding that a mechanic or technician didn’t put something back together properly and I fortunately noticed it and corrected it before it caused a major problem.

Thanks for these forums so we can learn from others their experiences and possible suggestions or things not to do!

Hi all, I'm a serial Toyota owner ('74 & '76 Corollas), currently driving a 2006 Highlander 3.3 V6 bought used several years ago; it's closing in on 200K miles. I love this vehicle and am hoping to use it for as long as possible. Looking forward to learning a lot from you folks!

Gen1 2006 Limited

Hey, just arrived here to look for ways to improve my Highlander. Looking forward to seeing what people know / have done to fix their vehicles up and improve some details.

I bought it at around 110k miles and I'm at 150k right now.
