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.

200k miles on mine!

Vehicle: 2002 Toyota Highlander 2WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

I bought this car new in 2002 and now have 200,000 miles on it, which to me is amazing. I've owned a couple of Toyotas in the past (Celica, Corolla, Camry), but this one has lasted the longest. No problems except AC knob broke last year and cost $900 to repair/replace (had to remove dash to replace a knob? That doesn't make sense to me). I know it's on borrowed time, so am looking to replace soon....Also own a 2008 HL limited, but I like this "original" better.

Vehicle: 2002 Toyota Highlander 2WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

My Highlander has been driven mostly around town, with at least one long drive (1,000+ miles) each year. Other than oil changes and normal recommended maintenance, I have not spent a dime (new tires at 39K miles).

Bought my Highlander as certified used with 17k in 2003. Great reliability. Highly recommend if looking for dependable transportation with limited servicing. Would buy another.
