Second time I have owned this model/ make- great car for my purpose
Over the road and in town driving is so comfortable and safe in this vehicle. I did a lot of research before purchasing this vehicle and found this to be the best value for the price and quality. My husband just keeps making the comment "I love the ride." We will need to pick up a car top carrier to increase the cargo space but don't anticipate this to be an issue. I love the fact that it sits higher than a car but not as high as a full size SUV. At my age, it makes getting in and out a lot easier. We hope to keep this one for many years.
Me and my family have had this vehicle for about 2 years now. We could not have been happier with another vehicle. The ride is so comfortable and smooth( almost rides like a lexus). For a Suv it gets good gas mileage. We average around 21 mpg. We have a base model but it came loaded. Sunroof, power seat, 3rd row, etc. We tested a Honda Pilot the same day we tested the Highlander. Although the Pilot had 29 more horses under the hood the Highlander felt quicker, nimble, and lively. If your interested in this vehicle for a family of 6 or more look elsewhere. I'm 5 foot 5 and that third is really mean't for little kids. although the second row seats can be moved back and forth. I wish the vehicle was slightly larger but we can't complain.We have a 2wd model but it rides well in the snow as well. Overall we are pleased with the highlander and are thinking about upgrading to a newer one. Hope this review helped.
