Watch out! Hybrid Inverter Failure
By dmr500 on
2007 Toyota Highlander Hybrid Limited 4dr SUV w/3rd Row (3.3L 6cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
I loved my beautiful 2007 Highlander Hybrid SUV until the inverter failed immediately after the 100,000 mile warranty.
The part costs close to $7000.
It is a sealed part - no customer maintenance required.
Not something you'd expect to fail after just 100,000 miles.
Toyota Customer Care says it's my problem.
Internet research shows that this is a bigger and more widespread problem than Toyota is willing to admit.
Here's the clincher.
The car completely stalled out while I was driving at about 40 miles per hour.
I had to coast to the side of the road.
It was harrowing.
This is a dangerous problem - I am getting rid of this car.
I would not recommend a Toyota hybrid of any sort.
Recall and fix all of these before someone gets killed.
