My husband and I bought a highlander (V6 without the third row) 3 days ago and we love it. It had everything we were looking for and more. It did come with some extras: moon roof, 8 position adjustable seat, rear spoiler and more. We had just wanted the basics, but the price was so good, we could not resist.
The large area of cargo room, hidden storage areas all over the vehicle, the great amount of cup holders, the fact that you are up high but still feel like you are driving a car.
I wish all highlanders would have the metal grill in front of the car instead of the painted kind, a better radio. And what is up with the weird storage area under the gear shift console?
