2007 Toyota Highlander 4dr SUV AWD w/3rd Row (3.3L 6cyl 5A)
I was lucky to find a fairly new 2007 Highlander with only 7500 miles on it. Purchased it because I got a great deal and I am very pleased with my decision. First off, this is a very comfortable SUV to drive. It is not too big and it does almost feel like you are driving a car except you sit much higher. Now it does get a little flighty but what do you expect from an SUV. Pros: good family transportation. Got the third row seats so I can take a lot of people if I have to. Engine is smooth and is just about enough power for everyday driving. Very good cruiser! Build quality is excellent. Cons: if you have the third row seat up, no room left for luggage. Looks can be updated.
Engine, ride quality, ergonomics, and safety.
Could be a little bigger because if you do have the third seat up, forget about bringing luggage. Engine has more power in 2008 so takes care of that.
