Sharing the condition of my recent purchase - a used 2007 Toyota Highlander, 3.3L V6, 231,000 miles. It needs brakes pads, has a leak in the lift gate area, condensation inside the headlights, and short squeal in the air compressor clutch. Other than that no known issues and no rust.
I just bought a stripped down Sport package '07. 208k mi. Right off, it needed new brakes on the front, really bad pulsing. I got the towing brake kit, drilled/slotted disks, pads, and hdwe. for $175 or so on Rock Auto. Really quite nice, made in China. An easy upgrade. May do the rears, tho they don't pulse.
I have a set of rear struts to put on, I got cheap ones, it's so easy to replace them. Front struts had already been done.
The interior of mine is pristine. The exterior, however, had sun damage (severe) peeling paint from the hot Tucson sun. It got an immediate respray at Maaco (Maico?) in the stock color, only $1000 and it looks like a new car.
I only paid $4500 for the car, all in all it's in fine shape and I am pretty pleased with it. It will be a tow car, for my jetski. Hence the heavy duty brakes. Didn't want to chance towing the boat on the freeway with a Prius (which I just sold.)
