2006 Toyota Highlander Hybrid Limited 4dr SUV AWD (3.3L 6cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
I'm from Denver and we've had tons of snow this winter. I have wrung my car thru the ringer to give it a good "test" and it has done every thing I've asked it to with ease and grace! In addition to the awesome AWD, the ride is smooth, the interior is comfy, and there's tons of horsepower. My low MPG was 22 (85 mph on I-70 in 100 degree heat) and my high was 29 (being a really good girl on the throttle). MPG drops substantially when it's very cold out. Best MPG seems to be city highways with heavy traffic. I wouldn't trade this car for anything else on the road - unless of course it was something real expensive so I could sell it and buy 2 Highlander Hybrids.
Easier access to 3rd row, increase head room, better info about battery usage if you don't have navigation system, make cupholder divider sturdier (I broke the spring part when I pulled out a water bottle that had a little lip at the bottom).
