  1. Toyota has no replacement batteries

    Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)
    So, how are you supposed to get to work, take the kids to school, etc. ... you know what I mean?
  2. Chromtec Wheels Repair Under Warranty?

    Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)
    I agree. Once the coating is compromised, the pressure can even force the water into a hole and under it, thus lifting more than was already in trouble. Pressure washing with enough psi is strong enough to loosen and peel away the top layer of clear "paint" on any almost surface. I'm not...
  3. Clunky when shifting 'out of park' in the morning.

    Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)
    The only time I had a failing transmission ('74Pontiac three y/o and out of warranty due to high mileage from my job) it was obvious while driving. Gears did not want to shift properly. No problems shifting from Park to Drive. But I know trannys have changed a lot since then, too.
  4. Weak Headlights in 2018 Highlander Limited

    Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)
    I have that starburst problem, too. Cataracts are a slight problem for me, but primarily the distance correction (maybe even astigmatism correction...IDK) in the lenses in my glasses create that starburst pattern. A recent lens Rx change has made it worse at night than my older glasses, and...
  5. 2017 Highlander Limited or 2016 Lexus RX 350?

    Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)
    Sit in the driver and front passenger seat of both. We found the cockpit of the '16 RX to be fairly tight with little elbow room and chose a '16 Acura MDX that year. Lexus RX is a great vehicle, will have a better build and ride over the HL. I chose my HL for practical reasons over the RX -...
  6. Heater

    Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)
    I have to close that dash vent (between steering column and window) in order to get all the heat directed toward the floor. Both my '13 HL was and my '18 HL are this way.
  7. 2017 Highlander Limited and no speed sensitive sound Volume?

    Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)
    I haven't bothered with the Highlander version. Our '04 Lexus had this feature. Did not work. Dealer admitted it worked only when one drove around with all the windows open (road & wind noise). :rolleyes:
  8. Visibility/blind spot concerns

    Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)
    I'm 5'10" and have the same problem, especially when turning left at large intersections and I cannot see the concrete median.
  9. Leaving the Smart Key in the Car at Home

    Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)
    Leaving keys in your car, in the garage, puts it at risk of theft. That happened in our community a few years ago. Someone broke into a garage and stole the car, because they could.
  10. Navigation System Question

    Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)
    Looking at the Nav screen for speed limit is distracted driving. The Highlander's is on dash display above steering wheel, a somewhat safer. JMO Be aware that Speed limit on HL dash display may not be accurate. I have seen some discrepancies that would have gotten me a speeding ticket if I...
  11. 2018 Highlander Uncomfortable Headrest?

    Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)
    The '18 headrest pushes my head too far forward for my comfort - I've got a lot of disc degeneration problems - so I raised the headrest high enough that it no longer bothers me.
  12. Cleaning the INSIDE of the windshield

    Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)
    Great input already. Thanks! I will try the white vinegar and if that doesn't work, the Invisible Glass. This is definitely caused by the outgassing from plastics in the car. With each new car, the outgassing is even worse. :mad:
  13. Cleaning the INSIDE of the windshield

    Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)
    I used ArmorAll window cleaner, not the stuff for plastic. Thank you for your concern, though!
  14. Cleaning the INSIDE of the windshield

    Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)
    Suggestions please? I can't get this thing clean. It looks fine until I'm facing the sun, then all the fog and streaks show up. I made the fatal mistake of using Windex with ammonia and learned it melts the sensor dots behind the rearview mirror. But that was only a small area of the...
  15. Improving handling

    Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)
    After driving two European cars, I always find my Toyota/Lexus cars' steering to have a fraction of a second lag in the response. It's the nature of the beast. I adapted.
  16. Panoramic Moonroof Exploded

    Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)
    Link to Consumer Reports article from October 2017, if it will work without an online subscription, shows Toyota as one of the brands that have had complaints about shattered glass roofs, and the number of complaints to the NHTSA about it, looks like mostly the Scion tC. Your local library...
  17. Front Door Rubbing Noise

    Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)
    I think I noticed that sound then our '18 HL was brand new 18+ months ago. Never could see any parts rubbing. I've either stopped noticing it or it has gone away,
  18. Activate LED on mirrors with turn signal

    Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)
    FWIW, our '18 HL has the turn signal lights on the side mirrors but I cannot see the blinking light when it is used.
  19. Gen 3 Highlander or Recent Acura MDX?

    Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)
    I can't speak for the latest MDX but our 2016 requires premium gas. I did that for eight years in our Lexus LS and am done paying for premium, while my other half doesn't mind. The HVAC for the MDX seats can only be controlled thru the touch screen, which IMO creates distracted driving. It...
  20. HL Ltd: Adapting Rear Captain's Chairs for the Dog

    Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)
    Surely it is reinforced or else children sitting in the third row seats are at serious risk in event of a rear-end crash?
