Vehicle2004 Toyota Highlander AWD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 4A)
ReviewAfter looking at many cute utes and mid-size SUV's, my wife and I settled for the Highlander. After driving a 1992 Subaru Legacy we feel like we are driving a great handling and powerful SUV. I am very pleased with the overall appearance and driveablility. The only drawback is a slight hesitation when accelerating to merge into traffic. I found if I don't punch down on the accelerator, but give a more gradual throttle, the hesitation is minimal. Even though we bought this Highlander used, it comes highly recommended. Any vehicle that can stand the heavy usage that comes with a daily rental and still feel very solid is well designed and solidly put together.
Best FeaturesI like the driving position. Also legroom is excellent, both front and back. The third row seat is only for adults on a short trip, or children for extended trips. There is plenty of power under the hood. I look forward to driving this AWD model in the snow. Cornering is responsive.
Worst FeaturesFix the throttle hesitation for merging into traffic, ie., freeways.
