Toyota Highlander Lemon Odds and Nada Odds

Other sources of Toyota Highlander reliability information provide only averages, which can conceal as much as they reveal. So we also report the percentage of Toyota Highlanders with no repairs at all in the past year and the percentage of Toyota Highlanders that are lemons (required three or more repair trips in the past year). These figures might surprise you.

These stats are promptly updated four times a year, to closely track Toyota Highlander lemon odds as the cars age. Others can be over a year behind. Only TrueDelta tells you how reliable the Toyota Highlander has been recently.

2009 4dr SUV 270-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Toyotas are reputed to be bulletproof and that was our experience with a 1994 Previa minivan see full Toyota Highlander review
2007 4dr SUV 208-horsepower 3.3L V6 Hybrid
CVT FWD
This is my 3rd Toyota/Lexus. What else can I say, they are great cars/appliances. Although not a styling icon, Toyota/Lexus knows how to build what most people want/need in a reliable good quality vehicle. see full Toyota Highlander review
2006 4dr SUV 215-horsepower 3.3L V6
5-speed automatic FWD
Not much to say, Toyota has made great products. So many people I talk to discuss the fact that they have over 150K miles of maintenance only repairs. see full Toyota Highlander review
2006 4dr SUV 208-horsepower 3.3L V6 Hybrid
CVT AWD
Previous Toyota SUV lasted 25+ years with great performance and low maintenance. The new vehicle was the first affordable hybrid SUV available to the public. see full Toyota Highlander review
2004 4dr SUV 230-horsepower 3.3L V6
5-speed automatic FWD
Well...up until the issues with cars accelerating on their own their reputation was untarnished. Still...very few cars exhibit this trait so I still would buy another one. see full Toyota Highlander review
