2001 Toyota Highlander V6 4WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
Pros: Smooth engine, transmission, comfortable ride. Cons: Shifter intrudes on right leg room in driver's seat, tiny arm rests, came with Big O tires. Make sure you listen to the tires while you test drive. I didn't notice my tires were so loud. They were good snow tires, but I replaced them with quieter Firestone tires.
Smooth, quiet, if you want an SUV, but without the truckiness, this is as close as you'll get.
Larger and better placed cup holders, place shifter on steering column, needs a bigger and more roomy center console. Replace tiny armrests with a console like the Honda Pilot has.
