Toyota Model Recall: 2008-2010 Toyota Highlander

As controversy continues to mount over recent Toyota recalls, the Toyota Highlander is one of the vehicles getting a lot of attention regarding its relative safety on the road. Highlander models from the years 2008-2010 are part of a large safety recall that is split into two parts: a “floor mat” recall involving floor mats that Toyota said interfered with acceleration and a “sticky gas pedal” recall where Toyota said gas pedals could stick on their own.

As Toyota officials went before Congressional panels in recent weeks, critics of Toyota’s safety practices continued to ask whether some electronic throttle systems were at fault in these safety recalls, where customers reported Toyota cars and vehicles would accelerate out of control. The Toyota Company has insisted that they cannot find problems with the electronic throttle systems. In the meantime, government groups, consumers, Toyota recall accident attorneys and others are looking at what most likely caused the phenomenon of sudden acceleration that led to the recall situation and safety controversy.

As one of Toyota’s larger vehicles, the Toyota Highlander is one of the types of vehicles most prone to problems involving acceleration. This popular crossover vehicle has many safety features that helped make it popular on the American roadway, but with vehicles of this type, there is a specific risk of a “rollover” accident where unintended acceleration can cause higher rates of injury.

In addition to the current Toyota recalls, a smaller recall in the spring of 2009 was related to an “exhaust tip retention clamp” as part of a feature package for over 39,000 Highlander vehicles, according to Toyota’s internal numbers. That recall should not be confused with the current safety recall, which affects many thousands of Toyota Highlanders. In the current recall situation, Toyota is asking drivers to wait for letters from the company that detail when and how they can take their Highlanders to participating dealerships to get them fixed. The Toyota recall website also has more information on exactly which Highlanders, by VIN number, are recalled.
