2006 Toyota Highlander Hybrid Limited 4dr SUV AWD (3.3L 6cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
I bought my HIHY'06 about a month ago as a certified vehicle with 42,000 miles on it. I bought it used, because I didn't like the changes in the '08 (bigger and heavier). The performance for a SUV is great, passing on the highway or secondary roads is effortless. Mileage varies with the temperature and the heaviness of my right foot. Since it's not an aerodynamic vehicle, the mileage drops over 65 mph, but I get 26-28mpg driving 65 and still get 25mpg going 75mph. Best mileage in the city has been 32, worst has been 21 when it was cold. The fit and finish are good even after 45,000 miles. Maybe some of the critics got a lemon, but I'm very happy with mine.
Regenerative braking, sportscar-like acceleration, comfortable seating for 5 with plenty of room in back for luggage.
