2006 Toyota Highlander Limited 4dr SUV w/3rd Row (3.3L 6cyl 5A)
I have owned my Highlander for several weeks and have only 300 miles on the odometer. I wanted to replace our 1997 Lexus LS 400 with a vehicle which would carry more items for us to carry to our summer home. On our first tank of gas the meter says we are getting 26.5 mpg on all local driving. It drives and handles very well and has a surprising acceleration compared with our Lexus. The amenities compare favorably with the Lexus, but I miss the automatic seat and steeringwheel tilt adjustments as well as the additional leg room in the second row of seats.
I like the radio antenna in the window, the compass on the rear view mirror, the carrying capacity and the general appearance of the interior and exterior. The meters for energy sources and mpg are also helpful.
I would like slightly wider seats in front and more leg room for the second seat.
