Don't Buy. Unsafe and Irritating
By garywi on

Vehicle

2007 Toyota Highlander Sport 4dr SUV (3.3L 6cyl 5A)

Review

Problems: 1. Excessive engine vibration transmitted through steering column. 2. Excessive front braking, front brakes grab, seem out of proportion with back. Braking consistency varies. 3. Cold idle too high, 1950 RPM, transmission slams into gear. 4. Engine idle, loud resonance or “boominess”, growl in first gear. 5. Transmission erratic with inappropriate shifting. Transmission always shifting up to 5th gear at slow speeds, pushing car forward faster when not desired. Car will not downshift when appropriate. Car will drive for a mile without gas pedal input, stuck in 5th gear at 900 RPM. Car is easier to stop if put in neutral. Excessive braking to keep car from surging forward.

Best Features

Interior materials are of high quality.

Worst Features

Release a new transmission software update. Address engine vibration in cabin. Reproportion brakes. Address loyal customer concerns. This is my 4th Toyota, and I am sorry I bought it.
