Dec 07, 2012 (2:06 pm)
We bought a 2008 highlander brand new right off the lot no KM at all 53,000.
It was a great SUV til we got over our milage for warrenty!
WHAT A PIECE OF JUNK!!!
We have only 223,000 km on it the oil pan has busted,and the shroud , the tailgate no longer works, the windwo clunks when you open it, one of the camshafts has went we had to replace that, now the water pump is going in it. and the fact that I have had to buy 4 sets of wonky sized tires at 1000.00 a set I am not happy!!
We have been paying 841.00 a month for this and our lease is up and now we have to either pay 16,000 to keep the POS or pay 10,000 cause we are over our KM >>>
I would NEVER EVER EVER lease another toyota exp a 2008 Highlander what a waste of money!! Now we are stuck with a 53,000 POJ:(

#5115 of 5211 2013 Limited AWD - Blizzard Pearl
Dec 14, 2012 (2:34 pm)
Got a 2013 Limited AWD in Blizzard Pearl/Black with carpet floor and cargo mats and remote start in Western Chicago suburbs for $36,222 (without $500 rebate) +TTL. MSRP was $40,770. Had a good amount of equity in my trade, got a good price on that and also took advantage of the 0% financing through TFS.
Spent considerable time researching and getting online quotes - some quotes were really low others high and went with mid-range quote at a dealer that didn't play games and worked a good deal from there - they ended up beating another lower quote . They had to find the Blizzard Pearl/Black combo for me since it wasn't as readily available around here as the beige or grey interiors.

It seems like a great price and it's smiliar to my dealer's quote ($36.3K with cross bars & mudguards). I am interested in the remote starter too. Several dealers here will through in the remote starter with the quoted prices. I was wondering how does the remote starter work with the push start.

Mine is a separate one button remote that works like a regular remote start (I've had them on all my cars). The difference is you can't get in, put the key in the ignition and shift into drive. It will shut off if you touch the brake or try to shift and you will have to start again because there is no key. It's a safety thing. Seems like a pain but made sense. I talked to my mechanic about it earlier this week and he said it was standard with a lot of keyless these days.
Fine with me as long as I can start the car and warm it up/cool it down.

Hi, I'm looking to get a 2013 Highlander Plus or SE. Wondering if anyone recently had a good experience with a dealer in Maryland (Balt/Wash area)? Maybe someone who isn't afraid to quote "out the door" pricing.
It's amazing how one dealer can have so many different prices for the same vehicle (Edmunds price, BJ's price, Internet price, etc). Thanks.

Just picked up my 2013 Highlander limited fully loaded with nav and entertainment package in olympia,WA area for 37,900 +tax and license fees.
Thanks so much for your post, I dealt my car base on your price and the lowest they could come down is 37,900. Out the dorr price is $41500.
I called every dealers in 100 miles radius. And I am suggesting to get the invoice from Costco Auto Program, It helped me a lot to nail the deal.
Thanks everyone and this website.
