If Mileage is the Major Driver
By rob222 on
2011 Toyota Highlander Hybrid Limited 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
this is the' SUV for you.
Aside from the mileage, power liftgate and keyless entry, I have made a sizable downgrade from a Lexus GX.
Comparable size, yes but here's a few other things to consider.
No dual seat memory controls, soundsystem is very average, fit and finish is not nearly as nice, steering is numb, absolutely NO offroad capability with this SUV.
Fun factor, think Ford Taurus wagon.
My wife wanted a hybrid suv in our price range and I did the best I could.
She really likes it.
The vehicle will meet the needs of most every day users and they will be very satisfied.
But, if you are looking for a driving experience whatever you push the button, this is not your car
Watching the hybrid work, keyless entry, second room seat console change
Better soundsystem (mid-range and bass response), memory seats, one touch all windows, higher quality tires, hydraulic hood lid (no bar) w/light,
greater precision with speedmeter setting focusing on lower mph (instead of 0-70 encompassing using half the dial, and 71-140 in the second half which is almost useless), a little more suv off-road performance.
