    I took this car on a test drive and I fell in love with it. It is very smooth, and has all the bells and whistles you would expect. It is a Toyota so it should last for a long time!!!

    2006 Toyota Highlander - V6 w/3rd (A5) FWD

    Pros: heated side mirrors....great feature.

    Cons: The center console is kind of a waste of space.

    Advice: good for distance driving, poor fuel for short trips to work.

    MY last car was a '95 minivan, so that is my standard. The HL's braking is superior, it mileage is about: 14mpg city (NYC),and about 21 mph HW. It handles well. Parallel parking, however, it is harder to see low (most) cars that are right behind me...only drove about 5K miles so far. Roomy for to fit 6'2' people.

    2004 Toyota Highlander - Base w/o 3rd (A4) FWD

    Pros: None

    Cons: The whole SUV

    Advice: Dont get the base model

    To sum it up, I would like to tell Toyota Adios. What a piece of cramp. There are ther SUVs on the market for the same price with much guts than this has and a lot more options for your buck. What a waste of money. I't just over a year old and having all kinds of problems with the windows, tailgate and something loose and rattling under the dashboard. Don't even think about driving it in the mountains, it may or may not make it up the slopes, it just simply says 'not doing this today, don't feel like it.' Seriously thinkin abount Nissan or Jeep, might be more dependable. Thanks Toyota
