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

2005 Toyota Highlander - Base w/o 3rd (A4) FWD

Advice: it's a great vehicleI loved this car since I first layed eyes on it. Upon the first test drive, I knew I had to have it. I absolutely loved it and knew I would not be happier with anything else. It is so roomy, airy, and open. I love the trim and the easily accessable sterio. Great sound and overall a great ride. I get a lot of compliments because not everyone has one.
2003 Toyota Highlander - Limited V6 FWD

2005 Toyota Highlander - Base w/o 3rd (A4) AWD
Pros: 3rd row of seats
Cons: Poor gas mileage. 18 mpg on the highway for a little truck, pretty poor
Advice: Great car/truck alternative for those Subaru Outback lovers who need a bigger vehicle but can fit 7 in a pinch.Great acceleration (V6), tight turning radius, decent brakes, plenty of cargo room. Good fit and finish. Cigarette lighter recepticle pulled out from dash when I put a 2 to 1 splitter in there, questionable durability. Fuel economy has been horrible: I do all highway driving and have gotten 18-20mpg consistenly when driving around 75mph for long periods. I expected better. Gas guage takes a nose dive quickly around mid tank, and I can't tell how far I can drive before empty.

2005 Toyota Highlander - V6 w/3rd (A5) FWD
Pros: Side Curtain Airbags. I hope I never need them but glad they are available
Cons: Cargo area smaller than trunk of my previous car
Advice: This is a great vehicle if you want something larger than a car but don't want to drive a tankThis vehicle rides and handles like a car, very easy to maneuver. There are no blind spots. Lots of leg room in front and back. Back seats recline and move forward/backward. More cup holders than you can imagine! My only complaint...no cubby in center console for pens, phone, etc....
