When I went in to the dealership, I
wanted a bigger SUV like the 4-Runner.
I was trading in an X-Terra. I couldn't
afford the 4-Runner so I test drove a
Highlander with a few extras and drove
it home. I was very pleased with the
difference between this suv and the x-
terra. It was wonderful being in a
quiet smooth ride.

Saddens me that USA won't build
something of this caliber. Has all the
personality of a perfect gentleman.
Refined, reserved, full of class but
never snooty, this is as near a perfect
vehicle as I have ever seen. Bland?
Boring? Never! Want exitement? Buy a
Pontiac. If you want the Ultimate
Family Machine, the HL is for you. 10
years from now it will still have its
dignity, which is more than can be said
for the competition.
Love the MPG display. Superb HVAC
system. Ergonomics are near perfect;
right up there with Volvo. Very
predictable. Smooth, supple, silent,
A turbo should be offered for towing.
(And don't make the car Yellow just
because it has a turbo!)
