Used 2012 Toyota Highlander SE in Dulles, VA for Sale
Reviews for 2012 Toyota Highlander
Comfortable and smooth drive
It rides very smoothly. I like that it has 3rd row seating and that the seats in the second row are bucket seats that can recline or you can pull down the center arm rest for it to be a row instead.
Great Family Car
For anyone with carseats in the second row, there is plenty of room. I have a 2 year old boy with a baby on the way. I feel comfortable with the amount of space it offers. The car drives and handles very nicely.
Overall the Toyota Highlander Hybrid is a very well made car. But it does have a few features that I dislike. I have a couple other Toyotas(Sienna and Prius). So I'm able to compare with what Toyota has done in the past. Dislikes: 1. In this car the flooring is now black. Most dirt and weeds are brown and show up MUCH more than the former beige flooring. So that's one change for the worse. Don't know what they were thinking. 2. The controls for the air are over engineered. The thermostat is no longer a nice lever bar that you quickly move to the temperature that you want. Now it's two dials(I'd rather one dial) and if you don't have the fan running the car won't let you change the temperature setting. Even if you just want air coming in from outside. 3. For some reason, the steering wheel blocks much of my view of the dashboard. So I have to dip my head to see what speed I'm traveling at. Not an issue with my Sienna and Prius. Likes: 1. Like the GPS system. Very convenient. Sometimes it's difficult getting it to accept the address you type in. It will jump to conclusions about what you're typing in but then if you try to go back it makes you start all over again. I do wish they'd fix that bug. Same problem in the Prius. 2. Love the keyless entry. So convenient. 3. Love the sound system. 4. Love the smooth quiet ride. Handles well. 5. Love that the car is a hybrid and has good gas mileage. 6. Like the fancy leather seats and faux wood accents. 7. Like the multiple seat adjustment settings for the front seats. Very comfortable. 8. Like the rearview camera. Nice to look in it to make sure there isn't anything in the way when I back up. Overall the Toyota Hybrid Highlander is a well made car and very comfortable to drive.
