2012 Toyota Highlander Hybrid LimitedReview
Real Mpg = 24-25 — I bought the car in large part due to the stated MPG of 28/28 (city/highway), so very disappointed that it gets far less than stated. The dealer attributes the poor mileage to the gas I buy, my driving habits, and the roads I drive on (oh yes, and once they pumped my tires up to 42 psig when 35 is recommended). Overall a solid vehicle and good family car.
Primary Use: Commuting to work
Pros: Comfortable and smooth ride.
Cons: Forget about ever getting the stated 28 mpg, it actually gets 24-25. GPS system is not so great.
