Good, Some Improvements Required
By rico_ on
2007 Toyota Highlander Hybrid Limited 4dr SUV w/3rd Row (3.3L 6cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
Overall a good car with good Toyota quality. The biggest complaint is the battery in the gas engine dies if a door is left slightly ajar or a light is left on - once that battery is dead the car will not start, despite being full of batteries! (ppl laugh when I say the battery died on my hybrid!) We bought a portable jump start kit and it works great. Otherwise a good vehicle. Price is a bit high. Mileage is good but not great - when gasoline prices spiked I felt smart but the added cost is hard to justify, although it is an improvement for the environment (over a regular SUV). Would recommend this car.
Good to drive, well built, gas/electric engine switches seamlessly, car has good acceleration to pass on the highway, seats fold down well for carrying cargo. 3rd seat is good in a pinch but otherwise not very practical. Auto heated mirrors work well.
Better battery life for gas engine, higher end appearance and interior, more comfortable seats, eliminate wind noise with back windows open, lower price, better mileage, rear heating/cooling vents, back up camera.
