2007 Toyota Highlander SUV Sport 4dr SUV (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Problems: 1. Excessive engine vibration transmitted through steering column. 2. Excessive front braking, front brakes grab, seem out of proportion with back. Braking consistency varies. 3. Cold idle too high, 1950 RPM, transmission slams into gear. 4. Engine idle, loud resonance or “boominess”, growl in first gear. 5. Transmission erratic with inappropriate shifting. Transmission always shifting up to 5th gear at slow speeds, pushing car forward faster when not desired. Car will not downshift when appropriate. Car will drive for a mile without gas pedal input, stuck in 5th gear at 900 RPM. Car is easier to stop if put in neutral. Excessive braking to keep car from surging forward.


Best Features

Interior materials are of high quality.


Worst Features

Release a new transmission software update. Address engine vibration in cabin. Reproportion brakes. Address loyal customer concerns. This is my 4th Toyota, and I am sorry I bought it.

Review

My wife and I were shopping for a small/medium size SUV for our off-work vehicle. We were looking at several other SUVs out there before settling for the Highlander. It was not the best of the bunch but it was the best deal of them all. The RAV4 V6 and Murano definitely had more punch and characteristics. But the Highlander had the best value of the bunch. As expected, the fit & finish is excellent. The V6 is more than adequate for everyday driving. The handling is better than I expected. It is quite balanced for a fwd. Great ergonomics all around. The chrome enhancement on the Sport model really freshens up the dull look of the base model. Can't beat the deal at 0% for 48 months.


Best Features

Interior comfort. Quiet ride. Smoothness of the V6. Value. The ease for entry & exit. The engine compartment is well defined enough for myself to work on or to perform basic maintenance services over the years to come. Parts are relatively inexpensive. Excellent vehicle overall.


Worst Features

The base radio that came with this Sport model is "cheap". I'll be upgrading this in the near future. The gas mileage is not as good as some of the raters have put it. Our Highlander has been broken in yet so I can't provide an accurate figure. Best mileage was approx 21 mpg, worst was approx 18
