2001 Toyota Highlander V6 4WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
I drive it everyday as my commute car, but have taken it on long trips (more than 3000 miles) and it is a great car. Have been in dirt roads and drives well. Feels almost like a car, but you are higher.
No center console. Electronic stability control.
Give an option of not having the center console - it was great on the 2001. I believe in newer models it comes with center console. Driver seat could be more confortable. More noise insulation.
