I had bought this car used at a local dealership with 10k miles on it. After a few months, I had started to notice some minor rattling coming from the trunk area. I had brought it back to the dealership and they claimed to have replaced some clips. Still rattles. A few months later, I bought it to another dealership for the recall and again complained about the rattle. They added some foam, but the noise is still there. Over the years, more rattling started to appear from the dash and trunk. It's beginning to sound like my old 1984 Supra. At least the car is reliable. Hasn't broken down once.

Replacing our '95 4Runner (purchased new) was our '02 Highlander (purchased new - 3.0l V6 4x2). Occupants appreciate the comfortable and plush interior. The Camry-based ride is tight and refined. The original 16" Goodyears were just replaced @ 60K (with same). Absolutely NO mechanical problems to date. An extremely sure-footed vehicle (further enhanced with VSC) in foul weather. Much easier to park/maneuver than a larger SUV. I would describe the exterior styling as modestly elegant. We experience 23 mpg in mixed driving, approaching 30 mpg hwy. Overall, an excellent value.

We wanted a SUV style vehicle to
replace a Conversion Van. Researched
SUV's for quality, design, ride. Also,
talked to other with SUV's. The
Highlander Limited came out ahead. I'm
not into off road stuff so a "car-ish"
rather than a "truck-ish" ride was,
and has been, the best solution for
me. My 2002 Highland was purchased
used with a Toyota Used Car
Certification check. Have had no
problems and enjoy driving it in the
city and on the highway. I'd do it all
over again with Toyota.
