2006 Toyota Highlander Limited 4dr SUV AWD w/3rd Row (3.3L 6cyl 5A)
I previously drove a minivan and wanted to downsize as well as switch to a SUV. After researching online and test driving for months, I finally decided on the Highlander. I love that it drives like a car, not a truck. It handles extremely well and has great pickup. I'm currently getting about 20 mpg in the city which is more than what is advertised. So far, couldn't be happier with my decision. The one thing I do not like is that it does not have automatic door locks. This would be a great safety feature at very minimal (or no) cost.
6 CD changer, moon-roof, steering wheel radio controls, air bags everywhere, roomy interior, comfortable seats
Heated front seats are somewhat of a disappointment - they get warm but not toasty. Cheap sunglass compartment storage - needs a "button" to open and close. AUTOMATIC door locks! Why is this missing??!!!!
