2001 Toyota Highlander SUV 2WD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I purchased the 2.4L 4 cyl. and I'm very pleased with its performance. The gas mileage is great city/hwy 24mpg. Handling is solid & steady. Light roll when cornering. Road noise at 80 mph was good. The interior is very good. I'm 6'2" and the room in front and rear is very good. There's very little to complain with this vehicle.


Best Features

Good gas mileage, interior room, looks, high beam coverage, turning radius, visibility, and handling.


Worst Features

The left foot rest is high and the remote gas tank lever needs to be further out of the way.

2001 Toyota Highlander SUV V6 2WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I've owned a Tercel and a Camry and both were great cars, but the Highlander is my favorite Toyota. I bought a 2001 in 2003 and have had no problems. LOVED it when I bought it and still love it 3 years later.


Best Features

Plenty of power, sits high enough without being a monster, great for hauling kids and "stuff", just plain cute.


Worst Features

Love it, but... redesign front seat cupholders, more cushioning on leather seats, find a way to stop the "helicopter" noise when windows are open.

Review

Great vehicle. My wife loves this year model due to the non-connected shift pod to the console layout. It's been a very reliable vehicle and we see ourselves owning our H/L for another 5yrs at least.

2001 Toyota Highlander SUV V6 4WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

In 77000 miles of chicago winters and texas summers this car has never caused me a problem. All I have spent on it is changed the tires atg 35000 and bought 4 michelin crossterrains.They are a little harder ride than the bridgestone OEM but still have about another 10K in them. I bought this the first year they were out and have never regretted it once.


Best Features

Rides like a car even with the Michelins. Reliability is Toyotas market niche. I feel like I should replace the battery before next winter, even thogh its Ok!!!!


Worst Features

Improve the ride for the rear seat, and forget about the third seat. The V6 is thirsty (19/21mpg my experience). Add a hybrid to the 4 cylinder and we might get 30-35 mpg. Who wants to pay $40000 for a hybrid limited. Improve the flimsy armrests
