2005 Toyota Highlander Fwd 4dr SUV w/3rd Row (2.4L 4cyl 4A)
This SUV feels like driving a car, but you feel secure as you're driving an SUV. The seats fold flat and this gives enough space to haul just about anything. The 3rd row seat makes me feel like I saved a good $10,000. Look around for a 4cyl w/3rd row seat, or any SUV with 3rd row seat. $40K + if your lucky. Now try to find an SUV that you spend $35.00 on unleaded plus and try driving for 14 days every day to work on $35.00. I live about 15 miles from work and go out occasionally on weekdays and weekends. With the gas at it's highest $40.00 will get me thru 2 weeks. Every time my wife and I go out, even strangers like our SUV. So far I haven't heard any complaints from other Highlander owners.
