2005 Toyota Highlander Fwd 4dr SUV w/3rd Row (3.3L 6cyl 5A)
Coming from a minivan to a Highlander has been the best experience in my short car ownership-life. I get much better mileage and haven't sacrificed too much space. I have not experienced any problems with the Highlander, as opposed to my experience with the minivan (not a Toyota).
Comfortable ride, good mileage and enough space for the family. Great air- conditioning and love the 3rd row seat.
Front cup holders are awkward, front seats are too hard and window noise occurs when only window is opened. Have to open at least two to keep loud air sounds from happening.
