2006 Toyota Highlander Hybrid Limited 4dr SUV AWD (3.3L 6cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
One week ownership. Bought used at 46k but it's like new. Our objective was to find a larger car, as reliable, more powerful, more quiet and more comfortable than our CR-V but with good visibility, equivalent mpg with 4WD. A tall order but we found it with the 06 HH (08,09 HH are too big, too pricey, have recalls and 19" wheels = $$tires). Analyzed and drove 10 comparable, the 06/07 HH has the best value. Mileage: better than anticipated (avg 29+ urban commute, 26 hwy). This beats CR-V with more horsepower and much more cargo space! Also the new CR-V has poor visibility and road noise. Our HH has a full ltd. package, we traded up. Finally, a comfortable driver's seat.
Hybrid Synergy Drive! Interior has sophistication. Great visibility. Quiet smooth ride. Wonderful power and acceleration. Nav system. Comfortable adjustable seats. JBL sound.
