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.
2010 Toyota HighlanderScott Broam - Lexington, SC09/02/2016
This is a great vehicle that suits our needs well. The 4 cylinder coupled with the 6 speed transmission has been peppy, fairly frugal, roomy, yet capable of towing. We're getting an average of 22-24 which is good, but we have yet to see 27 mpg EPA hwy rating. This one has the tow prep package (rated to 3,500#) - we haven't pulled that, but with a load of 6 passengers + trailer (about 1,000#) it handled a long steep grade into the NC mountains acceptably. Note that the 2nd seat in the middle row is not for a full sized person and when you have the 3rd seat up, there is very little storage - but, 6 adults can be comfortable - 4 with ample storage. It's not a minivan (we have one) but can step up to people hauler duty. Sturdy roof rack.
Highlander - Super Great
2006 Toyota HighlanderDJ Duvall - Bakersfield, CA01/01/2017
I have had 3 Toyota trucks over the years. Never had any trouble with any of them. Easy to drive stick and/or automatic, gas mileage was great. This time I decided to go with a CUV which is a cross-over from a car and SUV. Had to get used to the color which is Sunfire (redish). Never realized how many red vehicles there were out there until I got mine. It handles so easy. I love it. Couldn't be happier.
