A Step In The Right Direction
By jay kent on
2006 Toyota Highlander Hybrid Limited 4dr SUV AWD (3.3L 6cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
This is my second Highlander in a row and my first Hybrid. I LOVE IT! Sure, it's not perfect, but kudos to Toyota for giving us an alternative to the gas guzzling SUV. Mileage at 10,000 km is apx. 28 hwy and 25 city (hilly). On the flats, mileage is closer to 30 mpg combined. So, it's not perfect yet, but already I calculate I've used over 600 litres (160 gallons) less than with my previous Highlander. The vehicle is a bit heavier and handling is not quite as sharp as the '01 but it's comfortable and the acceleration is fantastic. This vehicle gets you thinking the right way about fuel consumption. Highly recommended to those who care.
Toyota reliabilty, great visibility, great sound system, lots of space for all of lifes stuff... and all in a package that's better for the environment.
