"Front pads were replaced twice 25K and 50K miles."
Sounds like your dealer had a boat payment due.

No more... Last time recommendation was 'need new battery'.. price $189 with installation.. Battery cost $139.

that's exactly what happens in my case. As I"m driving it goes away, but it's still very loud as I'm backing out of my driveway or pulling out of work. It only happens when it rains or snows and I park it and then drive it hours later.
Scraping? Mine squeal.
#5260 of 5314 05 HL thumping

I have 05 HL with 103K miles and it is starting to thump whenever it decelerates. Is it the transmission? Also, what is the difference between a service and a maintenance?
#5261 of 5314 '05 HL delayed start after performed recall
Mar 02, 2012 (3:49 pm)
After the pulley recall was performed by my dealership recently my car has had some new problems I've never had before. It takes a much longer time for the engine to start/crank over when I have it parked for a long period of time. I also hear some type of clunking sound coming from the engine at times while the engine is trying to start.
Any ideas of what I should check or do?
#5262 of 5314 heavy swaying motion at high speeds
Mar 13, 2012 (11:00 am)
I have a 2005 highlander and when I am going over 60 my car starts to sway really bad. I tap my brake and it decreases.
The dealership is saying that the rear axle carriage assembly needs to be replaced and that will cost about 1500 in just parts- I do not know if the dealership is just taking advantage of my lack of knowledge.
Does anyone have the same problem or do you know of a cheaper solution

Is the swaying motion a recent event or has it always been that way?
#5264 of 5314 '05 HL timing belt, 80k miles
Mar 17, 2012 (8:35 am)
On the last oil change my dealer recommended that I change the timing belt. I am noticing that it's taking longer and longer for the engine to turn over so I assume it's the timing belt. Should I do it now or wait until 90k as the manual states?
