2004 Toyota Highlander Fwd 4dr SUV w/3rd Row (2.4L 4cyl 4A)
I purchased this vehicle because I have
a rather large family. I wanted
something bigger than what I was
already driving. This was exactly what
I was looking for. The optional 3rd row
seating works great for us. I unfold it
when not in use. The CD/radio that came
with the Highlander sounds great. I did
test drive some other makes and models
of SUV's. The Toyota Highlander was the
one that I enjoyed driving the most. I
like that seats in the 2nd and 3rd row
are able to move forward and backwards.
With the 3rd row seats folded down
there is ample amount of cargo space.
The gas mileage is excellent for this
SUV. I opted for the 4 cyl. engine.
I love the extra features on the tires.
They have a "dummy proof" way of
telling you it's not safe to drive your
car. Simply if the color on the stems
are red, do not drive your vehicle. It
handles excellent. It has a smooth ride
over bumps. The size for the price paid
I would suggest putting an A/C vent in
the 3rd row seating area to go with the
heat it has back there. The interior
could use some improvements. It seems
too light in color when you have
children. The storage area under the
shifter needs to be more easily
2004 Toyota Highlander Limited Fwd 4dr SUV w/3rd Row (3.3L 6cyl 5A)
The Highlander drives like a car, gets
fairly good gas milage. I love the
easy loading and unloading of grocery,
etc. I thought I wanted a SUV for my
next new car. I checked out the Jeep,
Chevrolet, Honda, Ford SUV's. Loved
the style, ease of driving the
Highlander. I added running boards, as
I am short.
I just love it, it is fun to drive and
couldn't be more pleased.
I love everything about it, the ease of
loading and unloading, comfort, style.
2004 Toyota Highlander AWD 4dr SUV w/3rd Row (3.3L 6cyl 5A)
I lied- I actually have an '02 AWD 3L
6cyl model (purchased 11/01). The last
2 1/2 yrs in it have been WONDERFUL!
No problems, and still as smooth &
quiet as ever. Best vehicle I've ever
had! Passengers can't believe it's not
new, as it still rides like one.
Drives fantastic in the Colorado
Drives like a car, responsive, and
quick acceleration. Not too high
to "climb" into (skirt factor).
Attractive styling & feels luxurious!
I wish I had installed a bug guard when
brand new, now with many paint chips on
the hood. Save your paint job & get a
bug guard! Otherwise, no improvements!
