Author's Product Rating: 40 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Gas mileage seems better than advertised.
Easy use Gauges/controls.
Vehicle is a safe, comfortable ride.
Cons: Tire pressure warning system is touchy.
3rd row seating not roomy

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: acceleration, style, comfort, interior dash, cup holders, turning radius, smooth, size, air-bags, automatic 4x4.
Cons: air vibration when windows open, rear hatch window does not open, doesn't have wings.
The Bottom Line: Buy it. My wife loves to drive it so much that I have to argue with her and fight her over driving the car when we goes places together.

I've looked long and hard for a new SUV. I researched extensively and did a lot of research and a lot of homework before I bought my Highlander. Now after owning this GREAT SUV I wish I didn't spend that much time in research. No domestic SUV ... read more

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Comfortable ride, good gas mileage, reliable, reasonably priced.
Cons: Needs more storage space, some design details could have been improved.
The Bottom Line: Toyota makes solid cars and the Highlander is no exception. This is an attractive, solid, reasonably priced car and I love mine.

Note: This is one of my longest reviews. I can't seem to edit it down. I've spent so much time in my Highlander that I have a lot to say about it. If you're interested in something brief, sorry. Try skimming the headers to find what interests you. ... read more

Pros: 3rd row seat. Gas mileage acceptable. Safety. Excellent insurance rates.
Cons: A little small for larger people. 3rd row seat is small.
This is perfect for my family of 5. One gone to college now and it fits us perfect. The 3rd row seat is a little uncomfortable for 12and up. But its fine for quick trips. Love the look and the space it offers. Not to big and not to small. Excellent gas ... read more
