I got my Highlander pre- owned/certified and drove it 40.000 in 1.5 year. It gives about 24-25 MPG. This is my first Toyota. I used to own only American cars but none of them lasted more than 100.000. LOVE this car. Its comfortable drive, super reliable. I have over 65.000 miles on this car and she sounds like new. I love the space, I love I have a small sailboat and I can put it on top and howl it to the beach, I love it has a hatchback (not a swing out back-door as Rav4). What I dont love: The radio. Its cheap. The interior fabric is cheap/poor quality. The arm supports are short. I barely can rest my elbow & I am normal height. The car's outside its thin.
It is reliable, comfortable, spacious, drives very nice still at 65.000 miles
Inside fabric and plastic are super cheap. Radio and speakers - Terrible. Give it 'regular' people arm support. I had little bumping thing with a Subaru. The Subaru barely had a scratch. My Toyota looks like a rammed her into a wall. Make it more solid
