2008 Toyota Highlander Hybrid Limited 4dr SUV AWD w/3rd Row (3.3L 6cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
Since purchasing our Toyota Highlander Hybrid in December of 2007, we've driven nearly 9,000 miles. The car sees cold and snow when we visit Colorado in the winter and extreme heat when we visit Arizona in the summer. It is comfortable in both extremes. Very good in snow and ice, and quite at home on Mexico beaches. We've averaged 26-27 MPG with little effort, but we do drive somewhat slower with gas at $4.00. The interior features are a little more than we desired, but we wanted leather seating. The backup camera is hard to see when it's sunny and we have a small hard to detect rattle in the dash. We're sure Toyota will find the rattle and we'll keep the car until it has a plug-in accessory
Hybrid technology (mileage), comfort, great seats for long drives, quality, durability, back gate opening and closing, roomier than our 2005 and good service,
Make the rearview camera really an accessory, pay more attention to rattles and quality, give the hybrid an option of a little more off-road capability and stiffer suspension. Roof rack more functional and cross-bars included. Let rear gate open with a ski box on top. Please-a plug-after market.
