The Perfect Balance
By Al on
2008 Toyota Highlander Hybrid Limited 4dr SUV AWD w/3rd Row (3.3L 6cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
Wow! This vehicle has an excellent balance of performance, economy, ergonomics and reliability. Beginning with Toyota's amazing commitment to quality and reliability. Continue with Toyota's attention to comfort and ergonomics. Top it all off with 270 hp and 460 ft lbs of torque (almost as much as my turbo diesel!!) and it's hard to believe that it holds 7 people and gets 27 mpg!! We traded our Sequoia in for the Highlander and haven't looked back (we loved our Sequoia!). I think I love it more than my Camry hybrid and my diesel truck! Especially as fuel moves well over 4.00/gallon.
Ride, creature comforts, power and, of course, mpg!!
As others have said, the 3rd row seat must be split 50/50 or 60/40. Back-up sensors should be a standard for this caliber vehicle.
