Superb Suv — I have a review on my own photo album that I will complete. It's a must see. The seat comfort and build quality are unparalled. The fuel economy is excellent at nearly 28 mpg in both city and highway driving. This SUV sets a new standards by which most other car based SUVs are judged.

Pros: Quietness, ride, fit and finish, build quality, seat comfort, legroom and headroom, fuel economy

Cons: If not in Eco mode it can be jumpy in throttle, blind spots

I Love The New Highlander Model... — I purchased this SUV because I could not commit to a minivan, but was sick of my gas-guzzling SUV. I have had the Highlander for a week now and I am getting about 24 miles per gallon. I know it will get better as the car is broken in. I got it fully loaded and love the nav and my son loves the entertainment center.

Pros: Nav, Entertainment center, smooth ride, mpg much better than regular SUV, style.

Cons: Aux input - not specifically for iPod, running boards do not light up

2008 Highlander Hybrid — This is our first hybrid and we love everything about this vehicle. Gets 28 mpg consistently. We love the color and the 19" rims that are standard on the Limited. The 3rd row seat really comes in handy for hauling my son and his buddies around. We've had zero problems with this SUV so far.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Fuel economy for an SUV, fit and finish, color

Cons: XM radio antenna not in a good position

"Its six years newer with all the improvements that have been made over time by Toyota."
Front Seats Ranked 2002 Toyota Highlander Limited V6 worse.
"Possibly better designed? Not sure but I get the feeling that Toyota continuously improves its cars with each succeeding generation so I essentially expect each generation to be better than the last."
