2004 Toyota Highlander - Base w/o 3rd (A4) FWD
Cons: The whole SUV
Advice: Dont get the base modelTo 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
