2004 Toyota Highlander Fwd 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


I always buy Toyota because of the reliability and quality. This is no exception. Yes the ride is a little uncomfortable, and the tranny does feel awkward in certain situations, but so far this car has not given me any problems not one, it had a minor recall issue but Toyota took care of it at no charge; some sensor needed to be replaced. I would recommend this SUV to anyone who needs security to move around on a day to day basis.

Best Features

Quality and reliability, gas mileage, peace of mind and simple.

Worst Features

Transmission could use some help and more comfortable seats.

You can depend on the 2.4L, 4cyl engine until the rear head bolts let loose and strip-out the threads in the block. Mine did just this on Jan. 25 2011, with only 126,000 miles. I am the original owner and if you search the net you will see this is a common problem with this engine which Toyota is covering-up. I didn't have ANY problems with this vehicle until now, it will cost me several thousand dollars to fix, if it is fixable.
