Welcome to the Highlander Owners Vehicle Information thread. This thread has been created at the suggestion of AXMACD so that we Highlander owners can write down the details about our Highlanders. That way when we seek help from other forum members they'll be able to see all the specifications and thus help out faster and better. Participation is voluntary, and fill out as much information as you like.

Please copy and paste the "template" below into your reply and fill in the blanks. Also, please feel free to add any additional information you feel necessary beyond what is offered in the template. When you've finished filling in your vehicle information, just click on Submit Reply and when the reply shows up at the top of the forum page just right-click on the web address and select copy, then paste that address into your signature file. I'd suggest naming the link in your sig file to something like My Vehicle Information so that we'll all know what the link means. If you have any questions regarding how to complete this process just send me a private message and I'll get back to you ASAP and help you out. Also, please do not reply to this thread with anything other than your vehicle information. Thanks!
