2006 Toyota Highlander 4dr SUV w/3rd Row (3.3L 6cyl 5A)
I first wrote about my highlander from my first day of use. Now it is 2 years later and I love it even more! It handles icy and snowy conditions in Alaska like a dream. I can easily fit 15 bales of hay in it to haul for my horse. I can flip the seats and clean it out quickly, and my dog LOVES the back section with its own heater. I have just replaced the factory tires which wore out at about 48,000 miles. The air control box did break due to the severe cold we have experienced this winter (-30 degrees). But it was an easy fix by the dealer crew. Fuel economy remains strong as I am a careful driver. Road noise and a slipping mat in the third row are my only negatives.
Style, comfort, ease of manuevering seats for cargo, fun to drive! BLASTS through snow.
Second/third row AC vents, wider armrests, controls on steering wheel, better traction on back section pad for when a dog rides (slides it back toward door).
