The "mixer" vent may not be changing position ... this can be caused by a broken vacuum line, a bad vacuum actuator or a bad temperature regulator

Mine does the same thing I have a 2003 Highlander also. I just either give the engine a chance to heat up or turn the temp knob up one or 2 notches and usually that works. It's a pain, but haven't been too concerned to get it checked out.
