Bought this certified used Highlander in December 2011. The check engine light came on during the test drive. Took the vehicle back to lot. They said it was a bad sensor. They said they replaced it. Test drove it again the next day and bought it. Within a week the light came back on. My mechanic said it was a problem with the gas tank vent. The dealer did not replace any sensor. His opinion was they simply reset the light in order to sell me the vehicle.
After 30 days of ownership, I pulled up to a stop sign and the oil light came on. Barely any oil on the dipstick. I put in 4 quarts of the recommended synthetic oil. The dealer had stated they changed the oil when they got the vehicle approximately 2 months before at 81,095 miles. The dealer window sticker indicated as much also. The mileage I put the first oil in it was 82,224. Every 2 weeks since Feb. 2012 I've had to put a quart or 2 of oil in this piece of crap, and will continue to do so until I pay it off in 36 months and trade it in.
I should have bought a 2005 Honda CRV instead.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
