Watch out! Hybrid Inverter Failure
By dmr500 on

Vehicle

2007 Toyota Highlander Hybrid Limited 4dr SUV w/3rd Row (3.3L 6cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)

Review

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.
