2006 Toyota Highlander Limited 4dr SUV AWD w/3rd Row (3.3L 6cyl 5A)
Solid but plain-Jane SUV. Excellent power train. Comfortable interior. Good layout of instruments and controls. However, it is missing on refinements in the interior. Leather is thin and cheap, wrinkles easily. Hard to clean. Dashboard finish is thin and flakes off if even nicked. Radio antenna is weak and causes poor reception. Too many functions on light and wiper pods, which are unlit and hard to work at night. Cannot see instrument cluster even in daylight conditions. My first Toyota and I'm disappointed with the overall chintziness of interior finishes.
Solid ride with very adequate power. Comfortable seating. Great brakes and steering.
Much more attention to interior finishes. Change to mast antenna. Light the lighting and wiper pods. Change the instrument cluster so you can see it under all lighting conditions. Add higher quality leather. Make dash out of solid color plastic so it doesn't chip.
