I love this car. Before purchasing the Highlander,we owned a Ford Explorer. The Highlander is so much better in every way. The Explorer's ride and steering were stiff and truck like. There was no comfort in that car and the gas mileage was awful. I also never felt safe in that car. With the Highlander, it is like riding in a luxury car. The interior is plush and the handling and comfort are top of the line. We have taken this car on long trips and there is so much leg room. The arm rests are great. I have told people that the only problem with the Highlander is that the seats are TOO comfortable. It is like sitting on my couch at home.
The comfort of the seats. The gas mileage, and the size of the car is just right for us.
I have the 4 cylinder. It did not come with a sunroof and I really miss that a lot. I would also like a switch to open the back door without having to get out of the car to open it.
