Asked by Jan 20, 2016 at 03:24 PM about the 2010 Toyota Highlander Hybrid

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I am so scared I made a bad call. Spent alot of money yesterday and I have no
idea about Hybrids. My husband doesnt either. We have two small kids who
are always with me. I have read a lot of bad reviews and  really hope its not
the battery bc I see they are around $5,000.00 and I do not have that to
spend no time soon.

It is always a good idea to read the reviews BEFORE buying. Did you get a warranty with the car?

Probably nothing serious, let us know what they find.

No warranty but it was a family friend so she assured me that whatever is wrong with it will be fixed. Its hard not to worry when you spend a lot of money on something and have to call for a rollback to come pick it up. I will let yall know as soon as they call me and let me know whats going on.

Yea I agree, I'm reading reviews after.... gosh I hope its nothing major or they exchange the vehicle.

well they sent me a message last night and said it was a sensor on the transmission and will be finished Friday. Well I sure hope that's it.. doesn't sound right to me. But what can I do?


The more complex a car is, the harder to diagnose and the more expensive the repairs. Hybrids are the most complex cars on the roads today.
