I done a lot of research for about 2 months before I purchased a Toyota Highlander. My Chevrolet Trailblazer was wrecked. I decided to go with the Highlander after good remarks on Edmunds.com. I wanted something roomy that got good gas mileage. Love the sunroof & JBL radio system. No one is more picky than I am & I highly recommend this vehicle. Exterior is not as sporty looking as my Trailblazer, but it works fine.
The inside dash layout is very nice. The very bottom space saver is useless to me if you want to get to it while driving. I ride a lot each day in city & highway & I get about 22 to 25 miles to a gallon. That is my favorite feature. I bought in Sept. 2006 & already have 6,000 miles. Armrest good.
Hanger for clothes in cargo area. They are in the back seat where clothes are in the way if someone is sitting there.
