2004 Toyota Highlander Fwd 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 4A)
Easy to drive, very reliable, quiet and comfortable. Base model was reasonable in price, but those options add up fast ! Rear seat is only for kids, don't believe 2 adults can occupy.
Smooth suspension. Quick acceleration (when transmission makes it into proper gear).
Transmission latency is almost dangerous at times if you need quick acceleration to cut across a multi- lane road. Tranny also constantly hunts at low speeds (~20-30mph). OEM tires lasted 27k miles. When rolled down, rear window noise is deafening. Poor gas mileage around town (19-20).
