2004 Toyota Highlander Fwd 4dr SUV (3.3L 6cyl 5A)

Review

85k miles and going very strong. Love how easy it is to park and handle. Gets 23 mpg on highway - not bad. No serious issues. This is my 5th straight Toyota (Camry, Avalon, Highlander) Issues include: original tires lasted 28k miles; transmission slow to shift/hesitates a second or so at times which is annoying; some hunting in 3rd gear at lower (30-40 mph) speeds so I take it out of OD when in town; Loud thumping when only one rear window is down and driving at highway speeds - due to air turbulence - so open two windows at a time - one on each side.

Favorite Features

ease of parking (very good visibility behind wheel)

Suggested Improvements

Transmission - hesitates between shift points; hesitates when throttle is stepped on... annoying. I'm used to perfect transmissions in past Toyotas.
