    Great Truck To Own — Bought it because of the gas efficiency and very roomy. Great trunk space for storing. Back seat reclines about halfway back. Great handling and brakes. Gas mileage are mainly highway miles. Hasn't been in the shop yet only for regular maintenance (oil change, recently changed tires about 3 months ago). Overall a great truck.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Gas efficient, low maintenance costs, roomy.

    Cons: Don't really like the color

    Excellent Large Family Car Without The Driving A Tank Feel !!!! — All around if you have a larger family you can't go wrong with the 2008 highlander. Easy to drive. Safe with the side curtain air bags. Plenty of power. Good MPG. Lots of interior seating space. Stow and go walk through seating keeps the kids off the 2nd row of seats and if you need more seating just pull out the other seat. Use Synthetic oil and you will have it for years. I have a hitch attachment that I can put on for long trips that add storage if needed. All around Excellent SUV.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Great over all SUV.  4 wheel drive works great.  Great power.  Very safe family car.  Easy to fit 4 kids or 5 into the vehicle.  Walk through seat is the greatest for kid and snow/dirt doesn't get on your seats.  I wouldn't want to try and get to the 3rd row as an adult but the kids love it.  It has the room for a family of 6.  2nd row seats adjust fwd and aft that helps with leg room.  Im  6'2" and love the comfort.

    Cons: Storage behind the 3row seat is small but the fuel milage and maneuverability makes up for it.  Had a Sequoia and its a safe tank that is hard on gas and hard to park.  This is a lot nicer around town.

    Perfect Blend Of Quality And Durability With Entertainment — There was alot to like about this vehicle, and nothing to dislike. The only dislike was this is not a performance car, but hey, its an suv. Whether it is for the family or for a traveling couple like us, or even your typical city man/woman, this was a great vehicle to own and an even better bucket of bonus' and entertainment.

    Pros: This is an amazing comfortable vehicle. We purchased this two 1/2 years ago at 3,000 miles and have used it this time for traveling. It rides like a car but feels like your built tough like a truck. The amenities that came with this car is a suprising alot! The space and comfort it provided for trips has also been very good. It has made an excellent companion. There has been zero issues mechanic or electric. Constant 22 mpg Avg and 24-25 Mpg Highway.

    Cons: It is not a hybrid

    Hot! — It is my dream car. Fun to drive, passengers love it too because its comfortable and has individual heated seats and back row controls for heat and ac. The styling is fantastic, it is a great looking car inside and out. I live in Illinois and it handles all the horrible weather we get. Wondergul handling, killer sound system, I love, love, love my Highlander!

    Value Conscience Suv — Highlander Sport is a well-rounded vehicle with good mileage. Does everything well. Very good value, redesigned for 2008. Downside is that it is alittle bland. Fit and finish is excellent. I would recommend this vehicle if you want the most bang for the buck

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: value

    Cons: little bland

    My Ride — VERY COMFORTABLE. Lots of leg room. It rides smooth. With the right tires, you barely feel the road. Handling is easy. It does have some wierd rattles, but might be due to the newness of the plastic parts. Overall.. fun to drive.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: The way it handles.

    Cons: You can't keep the backglass open while driving... my 4 runner could.

    2008 Toyota Highlander Sport — This car is amazing over all. It has excellent performance in the city, on the highways and off road on the snow. The sport model gives this car a very sleek, sporty look to it, featuring nice 19" alloy wheels. Inside, the very coiol JBL 6 speaker plus subwoofer sound system gives this car some rythm. Its built well inside, has plenty of cargo room. Sitting in it fells spacious in the front & back. The sunroof, and the bluetooth system is also nice to have.

    Pros: Good looks and performance, very cool!

    Cons: third row seats are not 50/50 split. Doesnt have 4 wheel drive lock, often very helpful inb offroad/snow driving.
