Review of the 2002 Toyota Highlander

  • An oversized Camry wagon that went equipment- and clothes-shopping at REI. It's not a real SUV, but it's a really nice SUV pretender.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Roomy interior, car-like ride and handling, spunky V6 engine.

  • Cons

    Rear seat is uncomfortably low, no third-row seat, limited towing and off-road abilities.

Vehicle: 2002 Toyota Highlander 2WD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

I purchased this car with 72,000 miles on it. I have 130,000 with no major problems. Get around 23 MPG over all. Runs good for only having a 4 cyl. I would buy another.

Love my highlander!

Vehicle: 2002 Toyota Highlander 2WD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

We bought our 2002 dark green 4 cyl Highlander new, and it now has 353,800 miles on it! We have replaced the catalytic converters, A/C knob, and just recently, the timing chain. The car still looks great inside and out. When (if!) it ever dies, I'll buy another one. We have always owned Toyotas because they are so dependable and low-maintenance, but this is the best one ever.

Vehicle: 2002 Toyota Highlander 2WD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

132K miles and second time it's the catalytic converter. Additionally, for a 4-cyl, I should really get better gas mileage. Need to go back to a different maker. My first and ONLY Toyota.

Please let me know if you have installed cross bars on a 2008 Highlander. Describe how you removed rear covers without breaking them. I saw a post for 2002 models, but want to know if it is the same...
