I purchased a white ex-l 3 weeks ago. I'm getting about 27 mpg.
I haven't established the value in the eco feature yet. That aside, the car is comfortable and I know I won't have any major repairs for several years. It handles very well. I like how honda simplifies the options. I would like to do a dna test to see if this is really leather.
As a four cylinder it gets all it can out of it. I think I would prefer a six but the four will do. Sound system is ok but I have a 9 year old highlander with JBL that sounds better. I wish I had bought this years ago instead of a different AWD that uses a boxer engine.
Handling, comfort, space, and hopefully reliability. All controls for radio and environment are very easy to use. looks great too.
Upgrade the leather. Offer a 6 cylinder. Improve the sound system. Reduce road noise.
