Good For A While, Not A Long Term Car. — Great first car, will get you from 'A to B' easily and comfortably, great car for a high schooler, with good handling and easy to manage. Although when parked outside it traps the air and amplifies the temperature (ex: 85 out side the car = 115 inside the car). Brakes are a little worn, but that's only because it being an old car.

Wonderful Highlander! — Loved taking this car out for a little while. It may not accelerate as fast as you may want, but the safety and reliability on the 2001 Highlander are both GREAT! The Highlander is a wonderful car for a small commute to the store or maybe to a friends house. The seats are great and the visibility is great also. Love the 2001 Highlander.

Its Worth It — fast with the v6, sounds good with subs, all jbl stock speakers, leather interior, heated seats, 6 disc cd changer, looks good, moon roof/ sun roof, the car is fun to drive and has 4x4 so its definitly worth it

I Love My Highlander — There are little quirks with this model that are slightly annoying, but I'm sure that they fixed them on subsequent models. The only thing I wish I had is the 3rd row seating.

Pk's Toyota Highlander Review — Good performance and appearance and low cost of ownership. The build quality is also good, but with just 200HP there is not a whole lot of hump. Toyota quality shows after you have owned a card for over 7 yrs as compared to other manufacturers...they give you value for your money
