Reliable, Unobtrusive - A True Toyota
By NJWesterner on
2002 Toyota Highlander Limited AWD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
Excellent car based SUV. No mechanical issues after 61,000 miles. Comfortable and quiet on long drives. Lots of cargo room, and good mpg for an SUV - average 18 mpg city, 24 mpg highway. Reliable, unobtrusive, a bit boring -- exactly why one buys a Toyota. Expect this Highlander to last 200,000 plus miles.
Easy to drive, reasonably quick, AWD, comfortable, useful cargo area.
Replace the useless snow-averse OEM Bridgestone tires, upgraded sound system should be better, make the front seats travel back further, five speed automatic.
