2005 Toyota Highlander Fwd 4dr SUV w/3rd Row (3.3L 6cyl 5A)
Just bought Highlander for my wife and we love it. Highlander has a little better gas mileage and felt that the ride was a little more comfortable than others. Fit and finish are high quality and most interior features are well thought out such as bottle holders in rear doors. V6 engine is very smooth without any significant hitches when changing gears. Highlander also has no real blind spots and sits a little lower than other SUVs so my wife can get in and out easier.
Leather seats are comfortable and supportive. Rear seats recline. DVD package is essentially 2 DVD's (one in each headrest) and unlike flip down DVDs, these don't obstruct one's rearview
Would agree with some auto reviews that the steering is a little numb. Also the 3rd row seat is of little use.
