2005 Toyota Highlander Fwd 4dr SUV (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I have owned this vehicle for 4.5 years and have had no issues. Transmission shifting from 3rd to 4th is a bit "herky jerky" at times but the overall ride is extremely smooth. Plan on buying another one in 2-3 years. A solid buy.

2005 Toyota Highlander Fwd 4dr SUV (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Having my driver's license since the 1960's, I grew up with 'The Big Three', and I always liked American made cars. But when the American automakers don't or won't give you a gas sipper when you ask for it, you look elsewhere. Since 2003 I have bought two new Toyotas and this, almost one year old with only 15,000 miles. I couldn't be happier. Following recommended maintenance schedules, I've not had one necessary repair or return to the dealership or local mechanic. They're well built so you can embark on any trip with a comforting sense of confidence that you'll reach your destination without a mechanical failure.


Favorite Features

Great performance from the powerful V- 6, interior comfort in any seat, excellent crash test results, loos good, and good gas mileage. 19-23.


Suggested Improvements

I can't think of anything about this vehicle I would change.

Review

I've had this car two years and it's been great. Only problem is I recently looked into selling it. It appraised for 13000 less than i bought it for only two years later. Believe it or not my Ford actually held it's value better than that. That's definitely not what i expected!


Favorite Features

Great handling and nice sound system


Suggested Improvements

The original tires only lasted 25000 miles. Depreciated faster than i expected.

Review

This was my first new car that I purchased. I absolutely love it! I have never taken it to the dealership (other than service of course) and I do not have one complaint. I recommend this vehicle to anyone looking to purchase a new or used car. Enjoy it as much as I have so far.


Favorite Features

Smooth ride, very comfortable, great look, gas efficient for this size vehicle.


Suggested Improvements

None! Very satisfied.
