2008 Toyota Highlander Hybrid Ltd.

Vehicle
2008 Toyota Highlander Hybrid Limited 4dr SUV AWD w/3rd Row (3.3L 6cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
Review
We traded our 2005 Highlander Limited with 65,000 miles for an '08 Highlander Hybrid and went from average 21 mpg to average 26 mpg, more performance, more room and comfort. It wasn't cheap and we expect to keep it past 100,000 miles. We were not impressed that the new Limited didn't include roof rack crossbars ($200) or door side moldings($180). The rear-seat-floor battery vents must not be blocked and that removes some room when we pack the car for long trips.
Favorite Features
Hybrid technology, comfort for long drives - especially seating, seating flexibility, respectable performance for 65+ year olds and hopefully Toyota trade-in value. The CVT gives the impression of better performance than the tests indicate. Very smooth.
Suggested Improvements
No rattle in dash. Less chunky styling, make roof rack cross bars and side molding standard, We could have done without the rear vision tv and the trendy big wheels. We would rather have a vehicle that might work for some mild off-road use. The no-key feature also seems superfluous. Add wheel locks.
