Shame on Toyota! I paid the whole 10k. I wish I could have a recourse to get my money back. If someone has any ideas write!

I need to get the 75,000 mile service done on 2006 Toyota Highlander Hybrid .... does it have to go to the dealer for this or would a local shop be OK for it ?

My Toyota dealer just replaced my radiator with a new factory radiator for $700 so get a quote from another dealer. Still high, but I don't want to mess around with it because it's a hybrid.

When at all possible I buy Toyota OEM. You can find generic radiators for most cars. as for prices I paid $400 using a discount Toyota dealer to buy a radiator about 10 years ago. So your price probably is about right.

I'm in the market for an suv, there is a 2008 HH for sale with 64k on it for $20 in my area. Should I stay away? Far away? I've read a lot about 06 and 07 inverter problems but not many on the 08.

There is now a recall on the 2008 models. Check the vin# and call Toyota to see if this car is included.

I have an issue with my Toyota Highlander Hybrid 08 model. As I was driving home yesterday it's like everything stopped working. I could not steer the car or operate the brakes. Luckily, I was not driving very fast or I would have probably wrecked. It lasted only about 10 seconds and then everything came back on. Reading about all the problems with this model, I almost feel like I have been driving around in a death trap! I am afraid to drive it now because I don't know if or when this may happen again. I called my dealer and they said to bring it in but what I am afraid of is that they will say the repair is not covered and I do not have the money for any repairs. My husband wants to just take it and trade it in but I am not sure what to do? Has anyone else had this problem with this model and year? If so, what was the end result?
