Fun to drive
By Gus Sonmezler on
2005 Toyota Highlander Fwd 4dr SUV w/3rd Row (3.3L 6cyl 5A)
Since I bought this suv I only made 5000 miles but test drove few of them. If you like little performance, stay with 6 cylinder model although surprisingly 4 cyclinder performed o.k. but 6 has a great accelaration. On the highway I averaged 24-26 mpg and city is about 19-20 mpg, for V6 this numbers are not bad. Ride quality, suspensions and road noise is much better than 4Runner. I recommend this car if you mostly drive in city or on the highway. Dirt roads and offroad is for 4Runner.
overall built quality.
Console between driver and passenger could be better designed to utilize empty space under it.
