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

Review

We needed car-like ride and handling and the Highlander delivers. Plenty of room, especially front-seat footroom, plus a noise-free ride. Outstanding dependability and top-notch build quality make an excellent value. The transmission is especially smooth and the standard audio features user-friendly knobs and big, lighted buttons. The 220-hp V-6 is smooth and powerful enough. Mileage is as advertised, 23 mpg when driven sensibly. The 60-40 split rear seat easily folds flat creating 81 cubic feet of cargo capacity. The quality of interior materials is good, although the dash is hard, grained plastic and the plush ivory cloth is not child-frieldly. Visibility and handling are strengths

Favorite Features

Roomy, quiet, ride, dependability, quality, transmission, value, fit & finish, cargo capacity, controls, rear hatch, fold-flat rear seat, alloy wheel style, low step-in.

Suggested Improvements

Move shifter to dash with storage below and free-up space between seats. (CR-V has a handy, flip-up table) Move cruise control from stalk to steering wheel buttons. Restyle nose to resemble Camry/Lexus. Outside temp should be standard as on Camry. Softer panel materials.
