2006 Toyota Highlander Limited 4dr SUV AWD w/3rd Row (3.3L 6cyl 5A)
Although I have not had the HL for very long, I know I made the right choice. I was previously considering the CRV and new RAV4, but the HL flat out blows them into the weeds in terms of comfort and utility. The Limited Model with leather seats and a few other options is basically a Lexus 330 for $12k less. Toyota is aggressively pricing these puppies. Materials and workmanship seem excellent. Sound system is very good. I needed one totally practical vehicle in the line-up and the HL nails it!
Extremely comfortable ride and quality interior combined with clever engineering touches such as the windshield wiper de-icer grid. Gas mileage seems very reasonable considering it is AWD and has conciderable load carrying capacity. Toyota got both the little and the big things right 98% of the tim
Rear seats (not a big issue to me anyway) are only for very vertically challenged inhabitants. Would have preferred Toyota offer option on Limited to delete 3rd row. Provide A/C as well as heat to rear of vehicle.
