Review

My 2004 Highlander has 170,000 miles on it, is running strong, and not one problem
This vehicle has served me well. Only general maintenance like fluid flushes, filter replacements and tire replacements.

Review

I bought my Highlander new.It has been an excellent car up till now @ 66,000 miles. Last week my service engine light came on also vsc and trac monitors were on. I took it to a Toyota dealership and they said my catalytic converter was my and it was still under warranty and it would take a day to repair. Now they say a fuel sensor has gone out and it has been three more days I am not very happy with my highlander now or the dealership


Best Features

Ease of handling, Only regular maintenance needed till now, Storage capacity

Review

While the body is solid on the 2004 Highlander, the trim is shoddy. Wipers have scored both front and back windows; seat belt retractors leave belts dangling to get caught in doors; visors are floppy; broken filter rack fell out from under the dash. Yaw sensor went out as soon as the warranty did. Acceleration from a stop is sluggish; mileage is only average. Because it is built on a Tacoma platform, it handles like a truck.


Best Features

Brakes take hold immediately, reminding me of old style power assist brakes. Vehicle handles well with all season tires on snow and ice. There is plenty of room fro two dogs and their equipment.


Worst Features

Make the vehicle handle like a car rather than a truck. Improve details so they don't irritate one to death every time they need fixing. Improve acceleration on automatic so it responds immediately instead of with delay in emergency situations.
