One of the most popular midsize crossover SUV’s is the Toyota Highlander, also known as the Kluger in Japan and Australia. Introduced in 2001 to the US and is still in production. Toyota has made two generations of the Highlander and makes a hybrid model also. The hybrid is know as the MHU28, made from 2005 to 2008. No worries, regardless of your model, Rebuilttransmissionsforsale.com has Rebuilt Toyota Highlander Transmissions for Sale, very affordable.
Made on a front engine/front wheel drive platform, all wheel drive is optional. We call this a transverse mounting system. More precisely, the engine and transmission bolt together and are mounted sideways under the hood. In essence, the engine/transmission is east to west to the north south axis of the car.
The first generation Highlander, made from 2001 to 2007 used a 4 sped automatic overdrive transmission/transaxle behind the 4 cylinder motors. The 3.3 liter V6 engine uses a 5 speed automatic transmission with a lock up torque converter.
Perhaps, the transaxle that was used the mos in gen.1 Highlanders was model U241E. Used from 2001 to 2007 in the 2.4 liter 2 wheel drive model. Essentially a very solid and reliable transmission, during the remanufacturing process it is imperative to make sure to examine valve body ”tightness” precisely. Using a proven cure, as in a valve body update kit, all problems are then solved during our rebuilding process. Don’t settle for less. It will cost more in the long run.
