Q: 2004 Toyota highlander new stereo system?
I currently have a factory stereo system. What do you recommend I replace the front and back speakers with? Also can i move JBL speakers from a newer 2007 toyota higlander to my 2004 toyota higlander? If so, how? BTW the 2007 toyota highlander owner already gave me the ok to do this.

Q: Brand new Toyota Highlander?
i currently have a 2005 toyota highlander, finished paying for it not to long ago. Looking at a brand new Highlander, but i'm not sure if i should get it because of the recalls, pricing, and competition. I love toyota's, but i'm not sure if it's even worth getting. Should i get it, or just look into something else?? (if so, what?) THANKS!! :)

A: You have a Toyota, presumably you are happy with the brand, you know what its like to have a quality trouble free vehicle, yet you want to take a chance? And try something else? Any recalls will be taken care of if you get a new vehicle. Recalls are commonplace with other makers, yet Toyota recall made headlines. Yes Toyota is worth getting.

Q: When should I perform the first oil change for a new 2006 Toyota Highlander?
Is it truly recommended to change the oil after the first 5,000 miles? Does metal shaving from the motor truly collect in the motor oil? I've noticed the used oil still looks new and clean after 5,000 miles.

A: Are you going to keep this car forever?
If so, change the oil after 500 miles. and the oil filter(for the FIRST time). Why? minute iron or aluminum filings can exist during the break in period, and we are only talking about 20 bucks here if you do it yourself.
If the car is leased, or if you usually get a new car every 5 or 6 years.... who cares. Wait until every 5000 miles. Nothing lasts forever.
YOU SHOULD REPLACE your oil plug with a magnetic oil plug. You'll be surprised to see how many iron fillngs collect on it, in the oil pan even after 15 years of driving. Imagine the iron filings from a NEW engine.

Q: Where can I get roof rails for my new - used Toyota Highlander?
The dealership said to get Toyota manufactured roof rails it would be $1500. And the aftermarket would be $450. That is still more than what I was looking for. I want something that looks like the Toyota brand but am not willing to pay that much for them. Anyone know where I can get some?

A: I did this with a Nissan quest that had nothing, I installed the track rails and got the lockable thule crossbars all from these guys:

Many options depending on budget and it comes with instructions.

Good luck!

A: 1.Don't negotiate the trade at the same time with the car you're buying....actually, don't tell that that you want to trade anything before you work out the numbers with the new vehicle.

2. Know the invoice of the car.

______________
MSRP:
$27,300 - $34,150
Invoice:
$24,297 - $30,393

You can't expect to get less than the invoice.

3. Know the value of your trade.

Q: my brother purchased a toyota highlander 2005 new at the time.He needed tires,rotors and brake pads.Is?
anything on warrantee being he has only 45,000 miles on the truck.It is not a lease he purchased it brand new ..

A: If anything, your brother probably caused some damage that won't be covered by the warranty because HE DIDN'T PERFORM PROPER MAINTENANCE FOR THE CAR.

ALWAYS have the brake pads and rotors checked during oil changes. They typically last between 20,000 to 30,000 miles before they need to be changed. If you don't and the brake pads wear all the way down, it will damage your rotors (I'll bet that's what happened).

45,000-mile tire tread wear is normal. Getting new tires after that many miles is part of normal maintenance.

I'll bet your brother probably never bothered to change the grease in the differentials either. They need to be changed every 20,000 miles, ditto transmission fluid.

You want that car to work properly? Stop deferring maintenance!
