Always wanted a Toyota and I love driving it now as much as I did at first. Always dependable, no problems whatsoever. I like the tight steering, low turning radius… drives like a car. Easy to handle, even when loaded with weight. 4 cyl. is plenty of power for me. Big enough for my 6’2 stocky husband. I get about 20-22 MPG mixed city/hwy driving… wish it was more, but hey, I can’t complain. I love this vehicle.
★★★★★ Best SUV value

I bought this SUV late June after considering multiple sedans and other model SUVs. I test drove the Highlander and instantly fell in love with the drive and comfort. So far, gas mileage is OK (haven’t really officially clocked city and highway) and the air conditioning system is great! (Cools the car within seconds.) Overall, this car is a great value for the money. The 4 cylinder engine has enough pep for both highway and city driving so I didn’t see a need to purchase the V6 model.
★★★★★ Still love it 6 years later

Purchased Jan. 2006 at the time my requirement was back seat size, trunk space, side curtain air bags and great than 20 MPG. This brought us to the Toyota Highlander. It has been FANTASTIC for our family. I travel an average of 25,000 miles a year and have NO real complaints. I still when I get in say “i love this car”. No major mechanical issues at all! Just routine maintenance. Change the oil every 5-7,000 miles – it is perfect.
