Review of the 2001 Toyota Highlander

  • An oversized Camry wagon that went equipment- and clothes-shopping at REI.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Roomy interior, car-like ride and handling, spunky V6 engine, predicted reliability.

  • Cons

    Rear seat is uncomfortably low, goofy dash-mounted gear selector, driver's seat could use more rearward travel for optimum comfort.

  • What's New for 2001

Vehicle: 2001 Toyota Highlander V6 4WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

I purchased a 2001 toyota highlander from toyota financial in september 2011. The highlander has 110000 miles on it and it has a lot of oil blowby near the PCV valve. I heard there was a sludge issue with these vehciles so I went to Libertyville Toyota and asked them to check it out. I told them i was adding a quart of oil every 500 miles and I said they should check the PCV area because I heard the sludge build up was in an unusual area of the engine. We removed the PCV plug and stuck a tube in the engne area and pulled out alot of sludge. dealer teck called and said NO Warrentee because the engine was clean. They did not check PCV area, they said I would need to pay $400 first.

2001 highlander limited

Vehicle: 2001 Toyota Highlander V6 4WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

I purchased this vehicle in 2006 with about 75,000 miles on it, and added 69,000 miles of my own. Initially I was in love with it but that soon faded away very quickly, because in addition to my routine maintenance At least twice a year I had to make major repairs on it such as replacing the rotors, steering column, air conditioning panel, suspension etc...The mpg states that its 19/25 but thats far from the truth because I usually averaged 16 mpg regardless of street or highway mileage, and when exceeding about 50 mph there was an annoying whistling sound that leads you to believe your windows are open when they're not. At my wits end and ready to purchasde another vehicle




Best car i have ever

Vehicle: 2001 Toyota Highlander V6 4WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

I bought my Highlander with 67,000 miles on it.. It just turned 216,000 miles. Minor repairs like brakes, O2 sensor, but this car is a BEAST in the snow! I live on a mountain top in New England and it goes through a foot and a half of snow on a dirt road climbing a hill like its nothing!! The original Toyota battery lasted for 169,000 miles. The car rocks! I will drive it until it sighs its last breath then buy another.
