ReviewI've had my Highlander for two years now. I still find it a great car. My mileage varies tremendously, depending on my driving frame of mind and on the temperature. This past summer I consistently got trips of 30-40 MPG around town and tank averages of 29 MPG. But the cold weather is coming and this will knock me down to about 20 MPG avg per tank. If I zip around town and don't glide a lot or try to keep it on electric, the mileage goes down. This car has taught me a lot about how to drive to save gas. It's a comfortable car for both long and short trips, and the flexible seats allow for multiple configurations. I agree with other reviewers that the 3rd row seat is not needed.
Best FeaturesComfortable seats, lots of storage room, convenient cupholders, better mileage than other SUVs of its size
Worst FeaturesHave a block heater as a standard feature to improve start-up mileage. Offer leather interior and seat heaters in the base model as individual options (not packaged).
