Overall:

The Highlander is the perfect size for a family of 2-4. It runs and drives excellent, very smooth with plenty of power. My only complaints are the extremely small armrests in the front seats, and not enough seat travel for my 64 height. Neither one of these were deal breakers for us. There is one important thing to be aware of. The Highlanders with V6 engines have timing belts thru the 2007 model year, instead of timing chains. Toyota recommends changing them every 90-100 thousand miles. If they break, you could have catastrophic engine failure. I couldnt terrace down when or if ours was ever changed, so we are having it replaced. At a dealer or reputable repair shop, this is a $800-$1000 expense. If there is no record of it being replaced, Id recommend considering this an addition to the purchase price.

The 06 Highlander is a great vehicle. the gas mileage is the only drawback as it only gets about 20 mpg combined, but the one I have ran 230k miles before an accident totaled it. I never had any mechanical issues with it; changed the oil and rotated the tires regularly and had a major tune-up done just over 100k miles and it ran as good at 200k as it did when it was new . Everything on it still worked with out any issues or repairs.

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
