Overall Great Car. — I bought it new and have nearly 65000 miles on it and couldn't be happier. Great ride quality, really good looks and the fit and finish are excellent. Navigation and hands free phone work well and overall comfort is very good.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Lots of room and easy access. Great looks and the V6 provides plenty of power.

Cons: Tough on around town gas mileage.

Well Built Suv — Overall This SUV is very dependable, safe, and great ride for long trips. I want to mention that the stoping is by far the best I have ever had in an SUV. The look of it is sure to turn heads.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Safety, Comfort, Reliability, Gas millage.

Cons: None

Overall:

Easy To Handle, More Like A Car Than A Large Suv — Nice looking and performing vehicle. Averages 20 mpg. A tad on the small side when the third row is up and almost no storage when the third row is being used. I am buying a car carrier that attaches to the rear hitch to remedy. Ride is better than truck built suv's and gets better gas mileage.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: gas mileage, ride

Cons: small

Handling Ranked 2011 Hyundai Santa Fe 2.4L Limited FWD better.
"Santa Fe sits lower and feels like it corners a little better but you can feel every bump and pebble on the road. The Highlander rides much smoother."
Front Seats Ranked 2011 Hyundai Santa Fe 2.4L Limited FWD worse.
"The front seats in the Highlander are roomier and more comfortable."
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2011 Hyundai Santa Fe 2.4L Limited FWD worse.
"Highlander has a taller/wider cargo area and great use of all the space."

2011 Toyota Highlander Limited 4WD Review

Drives decent and has good amount of room in the interior but engine seems to struggle a bit when asked to get into upper RPM ranges to pass on the highway and on the hills. Room in Second and 3rd row are ok for its class.

Handling Ranked 2011 Honda Pilot Touring 4WD better.
"More stable at highway speeds and and more compliant at handling the bumps and unevenness on the roads. 4WD can easily sort out wet and snowy conditions...and with a decent all terrain tire, mild trailing is quite possible making it a good all around people mover in multi-environments and terrains"
Would Buy Ranked 2011 Honda Pilot Touring 4WD better.
"Better power delivery where engine never seems to struggle when asked to work despite modest power output figures (might be underrated from factory), great seating room in all 3 rows and youve got the added benefit of the Honda Reliability...you just dont see these vehicles broken down."
