I've been having a bad time with my Highlander, also. It's a 2002 Limited. 14 months ago, at 61K miles, it started leaking transmission fluid, plus required a new power steering (?) pump. That cost over $2000, and Toyota "helped" by paying only 10% of that repair bill. Now, at 74K miles, it has developed ANOTHER transmission leak plus they say it's using oil too fast. This has not been the happy experience I expected of Toyota. It's too bad,too, because I really enjoy driving the Highlander. Would have bought a new one if not for these bad experiences. Maybe Toyota really isn't living up to its quality control reputation anymore. They certainly haven't been interested in taking good care of this loyal customer.

I also have a small little clunk in the steering wheel which i figure is the steering knuckle everyone complains about.
I have the same thing in my 2005 Camry but the 2004 Highlander is ok. I wasn't aware of any complaints on this issue.

#4767 of 5330 2006 Highlander Rust?
Feb 06, 2010 (12:57 pm)
I am looking to purchase a used 2006 Highlander. Went to check one out today but I did not get too far into the process before I saw what looked like rust on the trim around the two side rear windows. It was only on the trim and was worse on the driver's side. I have seen posts in other forums about "environmental fallout". It has 42000 miles on it and has a "clean" Carfax report. It originated in Florida and is now in North Carolina. Have any Highlander owners out there noticed anything like this? My first inclination was to forget about the car altogether and move on. Hope someone out there knows what I am talking about! Thanks!

I've got an '03 and zero rust. I've never heard/seen anything on this before. However, I don't live in Florida, just in sunny South Carolina.

Thanks for the responses! I have my concerns about this particular highlander. When I went to look at it, it had already been reduced to just under 18,000. I looked at it yesterday, saw the rust, and left before the salesman could get out of his chair. By the time I got home and posted this message, it had been reduced to 16,000. It seemed too good to be true, and now it just seems like they are desperate to be rid of it. Obviously, I am worried that the rust on the window trim is just the tip of the iceberg.

Didn't think about the underwater possibility. Not a katrina car, though. Manufactured in december 2005.

Does anyone know the secret to removing the rear wiper blade on the 06 Highlander, in order to install a new one.
