2005 Toyota Highlander Limited Fwd 4dr SUV w/3rd Row (3.3L 6cyl 5A)
Our Lexus RX300 was stolen from us and
we had tofind a reliable vehicle fast.
We were planing on getting another
Lexus but we were paying off a house.
So we got the "cheaper cousin" instead.
We test drove it and it was fine. Once
we got it, it was horrible. There is no
acceleration on thr V6 and it is a
bumpy ride. Sound system is horrible.
We test drove the 2005 Jeep Grand
Cherokee and we saw it at the dealer
and it was very beautiful. We
immediatly traded it and it is an
awesome vehicle. It feels like a BMX,
Lexus, and Land Rover combined into one
incredible "Useful Vehicle" The
Highlander is horrible and i cant
believe Lexus parent Toyota makes such
refined vehicles but Toyota is garbage.
My favorite gadget is the third row
seat but it is so hard to get into and
there is no leg room. Nobody could fit
back there so we used it as the dogs
seat. At least our dog could travel in
a little luxury and her own heater.
Third row seat should be either made
exclusively for pets or should be
tracsher because cargo sapce is already
very limited as it is. Stronger v6
would be nice. There should be rear ac
and heat controls. There should premium
tire pressure monitor system. There
should be two monitors for both rows
