2008 Toyota Highlander Hybrid 4dr SUV AWD (3.3L 6cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
I have owned my 08 Highlander Hybrid for just 5 days but I am very happy. I am a discerning consumer and I researched and thought about thiw vehicle for 5 months before purchasing. I have owned Toyotas for 23 years and this is the best out of the gate. It is actually smoother and quieter than I expected and rivals my Avalon - BUT the pick-up power is till great!
Smooth ride, fuel economy, styling, space, digital/auto climate control, flexible use for rear space, and definitely the clear digital display that provides plenty of info about fuel economy/battery efficiency.
Flexibility to choose/add specific options - more detailed info in the manual about the drive modes and how to use them to their fullest - econ, EV (electric).
