Toyota Highlander Compressor
Toyota Highlander Problem
Model Year Affected: 2001
Visitor, 2001 Toyota Highlander, 145,000 mi
Compressor needed replacement after difficulty finding slow leak. It took 2 seasons of putting dye in to finally see it with the black light. Otherwise this car has been remarkably free of major problems. Cost for the compressor a bit of $ 900 with labor.
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.
