The 2022 Toyota Highlander is a family SUV that is meant for everyday drives. The auto manufacturer wants people to “see where your limits take you,” but it doesn’t seem to be very far with this model. Instead, owners are dealing with defective seats and poor visibility while trying to drive this SUV.

Problems with the Seats

The seats in the 2022 Toyota Highlander are meant to comfort and surround family members for the long haul. However, consumers aren’t finding much relief in these seats.

One Edmunds review states, “Front seats not as comfortable as hoped for. They’re fine but less comfortable than Sienna seats on long trips.”

How can Toyota be expected to get the seating right when the basic mechanical properties are defective? Just a couple of years ago, there were proposed class action lawsuits stating that the transmissions were not made to normal standards. In fact, these transmissions caused harsh acceleration, rapid deceleration, a rough shift and jerking while heading down the road. These issues even lead to transmission failure from the premature wear. With these models, the “limits” were very noticeable, especially when the SUV died.

Problems with Visibility

There also seems to be an issue seeing clearly from behind the wheel of the new Highlander. Without this visibility, trouble is bound to be around the corner.

The same Edmunds review states, “The rear-view mirror and camera housing reduce forward views, especially for right turns. The rear gate glass is smaller than I would prefer and the second row headrests block some of it further.”

While there are no recalls or class-action lawsuits about this defect yet, it’s expected to occur at some point. After all, the inability to see out of the glass is sure to lead to issues on the road. No one is going to be jamming to Johnny Nash’s “I Can See Clearly Now’ while enjoying the 2022 Highlander. If anything, drivers are going to need to readjust the seating position and mirrors better to ensure a perfect view. It won’t be long before these same drivers are fleeing from the Toyota brand to find something better.
