Hello, I own a 2008 Highlander Sport AWD and am looking forward to getting on the road with a Casita travel trailer next year. This is my first forum of ANY kind, so I'd appreciate advice about how to navigate my way through here.

Hey folks. New here but active in some other forums. I'm just a hillbilly driving a chevy pickup truck, but we are just waiting on the insurance check to clear to buy my gf a 2008 limited HL, and I'm just checking in to see what I can glean. Getting the VIN read by a friend at a yota dealership today, and after that I just want to do all the preventive maintenance possible to get at least another 100k mostly trouble free miles out of it. It has 143k on the clock.

Love my 09 Highlander Limited V6 3.5L. Have 132k now, and just starting to learn what's under the hood to do my own repairs as much as possible.

Hi. I have lots of questions about my 09 Highlander. There are 369 threads under the 2nd Gen. I never want to start a new thread unless it hasn't been previously discussed. However, I find it difficult to search out the information within the forum, and I don't have the time to browse through the 369 threads. I think maybe I'm not doing this right.

Hey there, I'm Master Sergeant Gary Collins, USAF(Medically Retired), Disabled Veteran. I purchased a 2008 Highlander for my wife last Nov. I'm not satisfied because I was ripped off by the seller who gained by confidence in him because he attended a Church of Christ College. He seemed like a honest guy; but he was a liar and a theft. He either cleared the top of put something on it to make it look good. One month later the clear coat was coming off. It has a small oil leak and one axle boot is leaking. Still has the old oil cooler hoses. When it got hot the damn AC wouldn't work. So I got screwed by this punk. I want to take him to small claims court here in Tenn., but the rules of the court require a person/service manager to explain your estimates, a piece or paper won't cut it. In today's world I would be hard pressed to find someone to help me. I paid a couple thousand more because of the appearance of the vehicle and it drove great.
Life is all about taking test and getting the answers second. I will never buy a used car again without a third party inspection.
I have the AC leak down to the evaporator. I've got a stiffer and no indication at the drain outlet. I put dye in there and no leaks under the hood. I can charge it and it will last about a week. I'm not sure my next step; the dash removal is too hard for my broken body.

Taking over maintenanace of my wife's 2010. Dealer will still be doing free oil changes (limited to every 3 months now...she does 3k miles in about 2 months) and 27 point checks. But after paying over$200 on difs and xfer case fluids change, she is done with overpaying. I'll be doing everything else from now on.

Hey folks, I just purchased a 2013 HL Hybrid and LOVE IT. I'm not a SUV/truck guy by any means but this car is great. 30mpg in the city and has great pep when I need it. I had an MDX before and that was great car but drank premium like a whale. Also had a Forester- crappiest car I've ever owned. And to be so slow and equally had the same MPGs as my V6 MDX is mind boggling.

Anyways, thanks for having me!

Hi all, I bought my 2009 Highlander Limited from my dad, who bought it new. It's in fantastic shape. It's starting to need things, as a car typically does with 132k miles on it.

Recently bought 2012 SE 81K miles and maintain my mom's 2007 Highlander hybrid limited 134K miles.

Actually prefer her seats, but really enjoy the vehicles because they ride nearly as good as the Avalon, decent performance, and quality/reliability.

Using Pennzoil Ultra in the 2012 and Amsoil Signature in the 2007.

Greatly appreciate the DIY threads and insight from the other members.
