    Nice Suv!! — I was looking at Nissan Xterras and ended up with a 4cyl Hylander. Mines Blue and it is really nice to drive, the ride is smooth and it has pleanty of room for the 4 of us and the 2 dogs!! The back seets even adjust to move foward or back for more or less leg room.

    Pros: Roomy but not too big.

    Cons: Dont have tinted window on front windows, YET!!

    Best Suv In The Market For Mpg, Comfort,reliability — This is my first used car purchase. I researched for a month on this purchase. Once I test drove this suv I was hooked. The comfort of the Limited gives you a Lexus feel. The handling reminds me an Audi. The appearance is plain to on lookers but you feel like a king while driving. The best part you are viewed as practical for this purchase, the same is not true when you purchase an Audi,Acura MDX,BMW X5 and the Mercedes M500. (These were all in the running and test drove) These suv's are great but for the same price with less miles you can get the most reliable suv in the market.

    Pros: Great MPG,handling,inside comfort and reliability for it's class, holds value for future resale.

    Cons: Can't find one yet!

    Bullet Proof — Perfect family car. 3rd seat option is nice, but you have no rear storage when you are using it. Dependable and very low maintenance required on this car. Rides like a luxury sedan- crazy for a mid priced SUV. Giving it to my teenagers when they are of driving age.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Rides so smooth for a SUV. Dependable. Sound system is excellent.

    Cons: Not alot of frills. Steering wheel could have better adjustment options.

    Couldn't Ask For A Better Used Vehicle — Very comfortable leather interior, steering and braking took some getting used to after driving a Tacoma for 10 years. The Highlander handles more like a car than a SUV or Crossover SUV. Much better gas mileage than the Tacoma, but I know I will miss the "just throw it into the back" routine of my day! And now that I'm driving one, I do notice A LOT more on the road, thinking I made a pretty good decision about a second car!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great used (new for me) car for my typical uses; back and forth to kids practices, commuting to and from work.  Needed a reliable vehicle after handing over my Tacoma to my daughter for the rest of HS and college.  It was in great condition, driven an average of 11K a year, one minor incident was on fax, scrap while parked, you can see it was garage kept and well maintained.

    Cons: Believe it or not my only concern with this car, so far, is the center console cup holders; not deep enough ... making full drinks top heavy and not too secure.
