Pros: mileageEnjoy my Highlander, no problems, only great performance
Pros: gas mileage, excellent acceleration from a standstill.
Cons: ride, road noise, headrests, side windows fog too easily, cloth seats, too much body plastic, transmissionI was expecting a little more after reading the reviews in various magazines and after owning a 1998 Sienna, which I loved. The Hylander I purchased is a 4-cylinder, 6 speed, with a third row bench seat. No bells or whistles. Pretty much stock. Diappointments - transmission does not shift smoothly, the ride is rough, the headrests are too far forward, the road noise is atrocious, too much plastic, driver's seat cloth wrinkled and stretched, weak A/C, side windows fog up too easily, and the original tires wore out (cupping) under 25,000 miles.
Pros: rides nice
Cons: blind spot when backing upGreat car..regretted not getting darker interior..was not available on the 'lot' when initially purchased..no exceptional 'extras'.
Cons: roof racks hard to clear snow in the wintervisability is great...4 cyl. but has good pick up
Pros: Really fun to drive.
Cons: In town gas milage could be better.Toyota hit the mark when they upgraded the Highlander. The ride is excelant, plenty of room, good gas milage for a SUV. We drive to Florida from SC to visit family and always are not tired from the drive, even after 8 hours and 450 miles. The drivers seat has plenty od adjustments to find your comfort position.
