2001 Toyota Highlander V6 from North America
Design Flaw - Unbearable Wind Noise
Unbearable wind noise from the passenger windows at highway speed.
I thought this car was great until other Highlander owners informed me on this problem. I have contact Longo Toyota (largest Toyota dealer in the U.S.) and Toyota USA concerning this problem. Would you believe that they are aware of this problem, but said that they are not doing anything about it at this time because there isn't enough complaints! Shame on Toyota on refusing to take responsibility of their design mistakes!
I have a newborn and it can break her eardrums if I lower the back window.
Please be aware of this problem. Do not buy a Toyota Highlander as it is flawed!
Do not buy a Toyota Highlander unless you plan on not using the back windows!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Excuse me, your ignorance is showing. Any car with the back windows rolled down will cause this to happen- especially in suv's, given their ground clearance. Believe me, I work for a Toyota dealership in Northern Cal, and if Longo cannot fix your problem, given the size of their dealership, it's probably safe to say it isn't a problem.
And, for that matter, certainly not "flawed," or a "danger to the road."
