This is our 2nd Highlander. My wife and I liked the 2001 so much, that we decided to buy the 2007 before the upcoming redesign. The size and practicality is perfect for our family. We live in upstate NY, so 4 wheel drive is important, but the vehical never goes off road so we don't need a heavy 4x4 SUV. The Highlander meets all of our needs.
A four wheel drive system without a 2 speed transfer case. Excellent visibility and utility. A well balanced, high quality vehicle.
