2003 Toyota Highlander SUV Limited Fwd 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

The vehicle rides very comfortably and smoothly on all road types and conditions. The Limited is equipped with excellent features and design both on the exterior and in the interior. Overall this is a quality vehicle with plenty of interior space.

2003 Toyota Highlander SUV AWD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

We purchased a AWD 6cyl about 2 weeks ago and we love it. It is a pleasure to drive compared to our old RAV4. It has plenty of room, silky smooth engine and tranny. After test driving the Highlander and 4Runner back to back, we went with the Highlander for the better ride. Since Honda dealers are not dealing with the Pilot, we figured we could with the Highlander. We got it for below invoice after a $1000 rebate from Toyota.


Favorite Features

Ride, room, drivetrain, fit and finish.


Suggested Improvements

Handling is a bit mushy, but it's no sports car. Seperate climate controls. Better sound system.

2003 Toyota Highlander SUV Limited AWD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

As a Lexus driver I was disappointed in the RX330 as it has a new engine and new transmission and absolutely no low-end torque. Trying to merge onto the highway is almost impossible. The 2003 Toyota Highlander had the exact engine and transmission combination that I enjoyed in the RX300. The interior is even nicer than the RX300 interior and the purchase price is about $10,000 dollars less. If you look under the hood you couldn't tell which car was which.


Favorite Features

Great performance. Handles well. Nice looking. Great sound system and beautiful interior. Self dimming rearview mirror with compass is a nice touch.


Suggested Improvements

Style is a little too boxy. Would like the illuminated dash for day time driving. Would like better bumper protection - easily damaged/scratched in parking lots.
