We like our Highlander. Our previous vehicle was a 4-Runner. The Highlander has a much more comfortable ride, and gets much better gas mileage. I can't tell that we lost any space either.... it seems we can haul just as much stuff as we did in the 4- Runner. About the only thing I don't like about the vehicle is the exterior styling.... very boring.
Smooth and comfortable ride. Very spacious -- can haul a lot of stuff.
I have difficulty seeing the turning signals and the speedometer when the steering wheel is in the down position. I would suggest more than just two positions for the steering wheel. Also an alarm if you leave the turning signals on. I would like to see "sleeker" lines in the exterior styling.
