2012 Toyota Highlander Repair and Maintenance
A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your 2012 Toyota Highlander
- What services should I request for my 30k mile service. I know I shouldn't mention 30k miles. But, I don't know what things I should have inspected. I have a certified preowned that was bought with 18K miles on it. I've had 4 oil changes. Thank you.
- Why would the brake pads and rotors have to be replaced after 28k kilometres?
2012 Toyota Highlander Problems
Compressor went out on Dec 31, 2009 with about 149K on the vehicle. Dealer replaced the compressor and now it has gone out again with about 164K on the vehicle almost one year later. Was not driving in unusual conditions - just started squealing like a belt or something was loose. With the cost of the part and the labor, it was about $1,000 for the first repair. Am hopeful there is a warranty when I take it in tomorrow.
2012 Toyota Highlander Recalls
Vehicles have a tire size/weight rating label to inform owners of the carrying capacity of their vehicle. These models are being recalled because the incorrect vehicle weight rating is shown on the information label. This could result in vehicle and tire overloading, increasing the risk of tire failure. Owners will be provided an updated vehicle weight label to correct this concern.
Vehicles that have had accessories added to the seats such as seat heaters, seat covers or DVD headrests may not have the occupant sensor system of the passenger seat calibrated properly. This can affect passenger air bag operation in a crash. Dealers will test the sensitivity of the occupant detection sensors and recalibrate them as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.
