2001 Toyota Highlander V6 2WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
I recently purchased a 2001 Limited Edition Highlander with 45 thousand miles from a good friend. After a month I heard a noise and checked the oil which was empty. Now I fill it once per week. I was told it was either a cheap part or the rings in the motor. I am getting a second opinion but am heartbroken. I cannot afford the loan plus getting a brand new motor. I really do love the vehicle but not with this price.
Appearance, comfort, leather heated seats, sunroof, color, and space for my dogs.
Have your regular mechanic go over the entire car before you buy a used vehicle even if from a reliable person.
