2008 Toyota Highlander SUV 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Love this SUV...80k miles never a problem- until this weekend...rubber hose that goes to the oil cooler if you have tow package broke. Oil light came on. Almost all the oil leaked out. Thankfully no engine damage. Turns out there is an extended warranty on this part. Have it changed before it breaks. That is the only problem I've had with this SUV in 8 years. Reliability is the most important thing to me and if I knew this part was a problem I would have fixed it before it went. Still, I would recommend this vehicle to anyone.

Review

Highlander is a wonderful vehicle. Never had a problem with it. My friends liked it so much they bought a new one for themselves, and they were Honda fanatics. Very comfortable both to drive and to be a passenger. Goes thru snow and ice very good.

Ride very edgy, body roll is high, motor is dull, high maintenance costs.

Review

Purchased when it had 32,000 miles on it. Now it has 153,000 miles. I've only replaced tires at $900 twice, changed the oil regularly, and so far I've never had to put it in the shop for repairs. We change the battery and brake pads, just maintenance. It's going to get a tune up tomorrow, and I hope it improves the gas mileage. For now city 19, and highway 21 to 23. Also, pulling the boat it gets 16 mpg, but it pulls very well. I hope it keeps up with reliability because I have yet to find anything else I like as well as my Highlander.


Best Features

Favorite feature how the car handles on ice and sand. When I push the snow button it feels like it drops slightly and grips the road very well. Roomy enough on the inside to seat my family, or lay the seats down to haul anything I can fit in it.


Worst Features

I gave it 4 stars in comfort because my husband says it's not very comfortable for him. (Could be he's not driving! lol)
