Customer Review Summary for 2016 Toyota Highlander
2016 Toyota HighlanderWrightly Reed - Gwynn, VA05/03/2017
The car is great for a family of 5. Enough seats for each of our 3 children to have enough room on road trips. Fuel economy is good for its class but As an everyday driver we find ourselves at the gas pumps very often. The only other downside is adults don't fit in the third row but adults rarely sit back there so no big deal. Other than that it's a great car. Very comfy on long road trips and trustworthy in all weather conditions.
