Window buffeting noise- 06 highlander hybrid

I just bought a used '06 highlander hybrid and am having a major issue with a bass-thumping noise when I open one or both rear windows at 30mph or more. Opening a front window may help, but it could be just covering the sound. Its quite uncomfortable, you can just about feel the air shocks, as if a stereo's bass was pumped very high. Is there anything I can do?

    same problem, I think it's just harmonic vibration from the design of the car. Opening the front windows changes the airflow coming in the back, and reduces the vibrations

I have 2006 Toyota highlander and am finding it difficult to turn the steering wheel, Can someone help me?


More then likely your power steering unit has gone out. Is it just as hard to turn the vehicle when it is turned on when it is off? If it is intermittent meaning it is easy sometimes and hard other times, it would still be a good indication that your power steering unit is failing and or going bad.

2006 Toyota Hybrid Highlander, Everything sounding and driving fine until pulled up to a drive thru line with foot still on brake, car seemed to start "missing" (old school) running rough, then a loud


this fan noise may be the coolant fan doing the job of cooling the radiator when there is no air flow through the radiator as in standing in a line or at lights. IN a drive through line you would have the window down and so the noise came to your attention when the fan cut in. However have it checked out by an accredited repair shop to put your mind at rest.

Wind Buffeting on 2010 Toyota Camry


that is just the way the car is built, the newer cars with the aerodynamics set the way they are will have a buffering sound if only front or only rear windows are open, like you said the only way to negate that noise is to open the front windows a crack, its a characteristic of the vehicle, many new cars do that.

Turn off switch for the hybrid battery on an 07 highlander


You have to pull off all of the rear interior trim panels to expose the hybrid battery. On the driver side of the HV battery, there is a large plug in device, that looks like a two-pronged plug. Extract it, and the HV battery will be disconnected.

19" FACTORY TOYO TIRES SHREDDING


Toyo®, Exclusive Tire of 2008 Toyota Highlander Hybrid, Limited Grade
September 20, 2007– CYPRESS, CALIFORNIA – Toyo Tire (U.S.A.) Corporation announced today that the Toyo® Open Country® A20 is the exclusive tire of Toyota’s all-new 2008 Highlander Hybrid, Limited grade. In addition, the Open Country® A20 is original equipment on several other models of the 2008 Toyota Highlander, both hybrid and gas.

The Open Country A20 achieved exceptional low rolling resistance performance making it ideal for the hybrid model. The tires were also specifically designed to reduce noise and improve both wet and dry braking for added safety.

Based on the model and trim level of the Highlander, the Open Country A20 comes in two sizes: P245/65R17 105S and P245/55R19 103S.

Toyo manufactures and distributes a complete line of replacement tires for high performance cars, luxury vehicles, light trucks and SUVs as well as tires for commercial trucks, buses and off-road and construction applications.


I'm surprised if it's so good at braking that it has not ripped my entire tire tread off as technicians say the treat is separating well before its time!

Toyota Highlander Hybrid 2006


The hybrid battery is charged by the motor generator that is attached to the engine, and also charges during braking. Very sophistocated in how the hybrid battery gets charged.

That being said, you do NOT want to pull the battery out & attempt to charge it. There is no charger available anywhere to charge a hybrid battery. Toyota does not offer one, either. Hooking up a standard battery charger could cause disasterous results (it could explode). And, the possibility of getting shocked with over 300 volts DC is very good. When we have to handle hybrid batteries, we have to wear big, heavy rubber gloves so we do not get injured from the many contact points under the battery shell. This is not something you really want to fool with. The stakes are just too high. Sorry I was not giving you the info you are wanting, but, be safe & leave the battery alone.
