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


Review

The handling capabilities of the
Highlander are really awesome. It is
quiet and gives a smooth ride even on
rough terrain. It has lots of room for
even my long legs and is has lots of
comfort for passengers front and back.


Best Features

The color, the size, the smooth and quiet ride


Worst Features

None I have seen that can't be added for additional purchase

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


Review

This is my first NEW car, and I am so
proud I made such a good choice.
I have had it for 1 month and love it.
I don't like the tippy feeling when
turning, but that is my only gripe.
oh and also the price I paid...should
have sent the guy back to the boss man
1 more time to get it down to where I
told them when I first went in there.
Other than that ......
I LOVE my new Highlander. SMOOTH....
Does the back window go down??


Best Features

SEATS are so comfy.


Worst Features

cup holders are cheesy.

Review

After driving the Honda Pilot,
Mitsubshi Endevor, Nissan Murano,
Chevrolet Trailblazer and Ford
Explorer, the Highlander was the
winner. Exceptional ride quality,
handling and engine performance. The
car dealer was wonderful and easy to
deal with. Driving this vehicle is a
pleasure, it has responsive steering
and excellent brakes. It also gets
reasonable gas mileage for a SUV. I
had every intention of buying the 4
cylinder but after driving both the 4
and V6, I choose the V6.


Best Features

I love the power sunroof, as I live in Southern California I use it all the time. I am also glad that I have the V6 engine, its extra power is worth the few mpg difference of the 4 cylinder.


Worst Features

Power opening rear side vents would be a great option.

Review

Ride is smooth and secure. Tires are
huge! Road noise is minimal on highway
compared to Camry I had previously.
Large storage compartments up front are
handy.


Best Features

Foot pedal parking brake; rear seat fold flat; lots of room!


Worst Features

Standard 8-way passenger seat; easily removable canopy cover bar; rear-hatch release up front

Review

Best ride, most comfortable, most
reliable SUV on the road. It is true.
I will never go back to GM or Ford.
And I think it is the best looking SUV
on the road. I am a believer. If you
test drive one you will be also.


Best Features

Reliability is tops in all the ratings. And it rides like a car.


Worst Features

Use a primier similar in color to the paint so that chips in the paint due to stones etc, don't show up as pronounce as black primer under silver paint.
