I could ask for a whole lot more!

Vehicle
2006 Toyota Highlander Hybrid 4dr SUV (3.3L 6cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
Review
Fuel economy is 22-25% below sticker numbers. Has uncontrollable torque steer while under full throttle @15 mph. The cars pulls to the right then back to the left, dealer says "that's nature of the car". The motor thuds when it comes on and is anything but seamless. Lift gate squeaks, driver's side passenger door rattles. Vehicle has 3,000 miles on it. While driving with the windows down, the brakes will squeal and the motor whines noticeably also the wind buffeting is horrible. Suspension absorbs pot holes well. Vehicle is hard to control in turns and uncontrollable if accelerating hard in a turn. Captains chair arm rests and stereo are cheap. AC vents poor for 2nd row passengers.
Favorite Features
How the vehicle handles bumps in the road. The idea of "Hybrid", but the reality is far from the ideal.
Suggested Improvements
Fix the torque oversteer safety problem. Improve center console/ arm rests for front passengers. Add AC vents for 2nd row passengers. Improve suspension. Improve gas milage or stop building the "Great Deception". More accurate computer for AVG MPG read out. Mine is always 7-10% above a actual.
