Great Family Onroad Suv — Good-looking (albeit a bit dated) family SUV. Good performance for what it is - no lack of power to merge on highway, strong brakes. Reliable although we have had some minor repairs. Heated leather, sunroof, AWD makes for an overall comfortable and safe SUV.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Flexible 7-passenger SUV with comfortable seats. AWD is nice with little impact on mpg. Very responsive engine and brakes. Easily get 25mpg on highway. Easy (6 bolts) to add a trailer hitch. No major repairs (at 99k so far). Has 3rd row heat (but not A/C).

Cons: Not the best for tall drivers; I'm 6'2" and it's my daily driver and I make due, but it's just not engineered for taller drivers. 3rd row is only for small kids. Transmission sometimes jerks but dealer says it's normal. Hardly any cargo room when 3rd row seat is up. A/C is good in first row but 2nd and 3rd row takes forever to cool down.

Toyota Highlander V6 Fwd 3rd Row — Very smooth ride, Ample power to get around town, but in highway passing it needed more torque. I was pleased with my purchase despite that one complaint. Also I didn't have the Limited model which includes the JBL sound system. I would've liked that more than the factory unit which had a mind of its own at times.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: 3rd Row, Car Like Ride, Toyota Reliability

Cons: Small 3rd row, not enough torque

Very Good Reliable Car — I know Toyota makes great cars that last. The Highlander was a very sharp car while excelling in the area's of reliability, durability, comfort, passenger seating space, and mobility of the steering in traffic (very responsive) so overall I think that this vehicle is worth the buy and something I would consider keeping long-term.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great reliability, super traction on the highway in rainy conditions, transmission shifts very smoothly even with 140,000 miles+, Great fuel economy if on cruise control at 60-65mph @ 27-29 mpg with 85 fuel, the passenger seats are folding and definitely help load the occasion 3rd row passenger, turning radius is pretty decent like a Camry, suspension is soft but not as soft as the MDX on heavy bumps, tires are fairly priced at about $550-$600 per set which is about twice my Corolla when you get basic standard tires

Cons: Bad stopping distance at highway high speeds, average stereo sound quality, poor comfort on 3rd row seating, needs more storage space in the trunk, side pocket storage on rear passenger doors is minimal

I Love My Toyota Highlander — This is the best vehicle I've ever had. It's quiet, smooth, comfortable, a dream to drive. Mileage isn't the best at 17 city/20 highway, but I don't care. I love the styling and the fit and finish is great. We've spent $0 on repairs in 3 years! Wow! Love it!

Pros: quiet, excellent fit and finish, zero repairs in 3 years

Cons: mileage is only 17/20

My Highlander — i love everything about my car.. the only thing i don't like is that it doesn't have a temperature gauge for the outside temperature. its a good car to take offroading a little every now and then, and its got great handling.

Pros: everything

Cons: no outside temperature gauge

Toyota's Flagship Suv — Toyota is another one of those dynasty auto makers, they pride themselves on build quality, and this being the best selling SUV in the US has something to do with it. Its reliable to a tee, its never coughed and its never placed one foot wrong. Its got a fantastic V-6 engine, that can be thrashed around, lots of torque and it shifts at 2-2.5 thousand RPM, at that pace the engine will last for another 15-20 years.

Pros: Great SUV from a great company.

Cons: Styling is extreamly conservative, too many on the road to feel special.

What A Practical Vehicle! —

I must admit, at first I didn't know what to expect of the Highlander. It was just a good replacement to our old blazer. I'll just start with the cons of the Highlander, since it's the base model, the vehicle doesn't have all the features we wished it did, also the 4 cylinder engine is slightly noisy and the road noise was bad (but we got new tires which fixed that problem.) The engine is also a tad bit noisy on the highway. As for the good things, it's incredibly roomy and can fit my whole family, 3 adults and 2 kids, with ease and nobody would complain. As for space in the back, there is a massive amount of space for luggage or other items. Performance-wise, the engine is lacking, and the fuel economy could be better, but at the same time it could be worse. The turning radius is amazing and the Highlander has a car-like ride which we love. If you want a safe SUV, the Highlander gets 5 star crash ratings all around. As for appearance, the car maybe should have been less boxy looking, but it doesn't look bad either. The cost of ownership has been really low, we've only done the basic maintainance required and replaced the aging tires. As for fun factor in a crossover SUV, I didn't know there was supposed to be any, but the fuel bill sure does make me happy! I would definetally recommend this vehicle to anybody who needs cargospace, or a spacy vehicle for the family. If you aren't sure about safety, we hit a deer at 75mph in the Highlander and the damage was pretty minamal, we were just shaken up. The 6 cylinder would be better for towing or a quiter drive on the highway. We are actually considering getting a new model Highlander for a replacement for our Tahoe.

Pros: Fuel Economy, Comfort, Space, Turning Radius, Car-Like Ride

Cons: Engine Noise, Road Noise
