Bill's first 16 months with Highlander H
By Bill on
2007 Toyota Highlander Hybrid 4dr SUV w/3rd Row (3.3L 6cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
Bought for economy. Hwy @ 26 mpg, city @ 32 mpg, thus almost reaching rating of 28/34. Excellent power, smooth transition between gas and electric, transmission shifts seemlessly. Dealer service dept very fast for scheduled service. Zero maintenance problems in 31000 miles. Very quiet operation in city and highway. Big enough to haul stuff like power washer, wheel barrow, construction materials, etc. We are very pleased with the vehicle.
Economy of operation, versatility of capacity for cargo and passengers, comfort and quietness, quality of construction, towing capacity of 3500# if needed to pull boat.
Plastic walls in cargo area scratch much more readily than in the past 5 Troopers I owned. Spring operated clips in the console drink holder between driver and passenger is unsatisfactory in design, falling apart continuously.
