When I accelerate from a very slow speed (almost stop) my 2005 Toyota Highlander will surge. I have experience this when try to pass or when slowed to take a turn but with not coming to a complete stop. The dealer has not been able to correct it. I get the feeling that they think it is normal or ok.

We bought our Highlander just over a year ago and we have to constantly put oil into vehicle. It only has 80,000 on it, and we have to put about a liter of oil into it every other week. The manufacturer of our area checked it twice, and determined that we need another engine, but the cost was around $7000 in canadian that engine would come from japan, and it would be a used one, and would only warranty that for 1 year. Then what am completely disgusted!! we plan on getting rid of this thing as fast as possible and will never buy another Toyota again. . Do yourselves a favor and tell people about this so no one goes this .
