Hello, I have a 2006 Base Matrix with AWD. I have a little oil seepage around the rear differential and wondered if there are any locking differentials, or locking viscous coulers available that I could upgrade traction if I have to replace anything.
I have been observing a bang sound at the time the car comes to a stop after I apply the brakes, or sometimes after resuming acceleration after I have stopped, and there is no any check engine light to tell if there is a system problem. Could it be the gear transmission, ABS or the transmission sensor? What could be the problem?
I’m anxious to see the 2020 Highlander configurator to show up - anyone have any updates? I thought they said December, and that’s almost here. But I haven’t heard a word about the vehicle since the auto show it was displayed at (except for someone with a preproduction one a few weeks ago.)
I want this vehicle for 2 big reasons; 1) full speed range ACC, and Apple CarPlay (and a bigger center display. I hope and pray Toyota doesn’t make the same assumption/mistake so many other brands do, and that’s not allowing me to spec a 2nd row bench seat in the top trim level. Why does a manufacturers assume that I want captain’s chairs just because I want all the top trim goodies? I’m a family of 5, and I want 3 people in the 2nd row so we have enough room for luggage etc with 3rd row folded down.
PLEASE TOYOTA- don’t make me buy an Explorer!!!!!
