2008 Toyota Highlander Limited 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
After owning Jeeps for the last 15 years I was reluctant to go Toyota but with a new baby we needed more room. I was skeptical of the Highlander's 5000lbs tow rating. Now after 11000 miles and several months of towing our 4000lbs 21 ft ski boat I am the Highlander's biggest fan. It pulls and stops our boat better than my Grand Cherokee ever did. Plus this is the most comfortable and solidly built car I have ever owned. Gas mileage is good at a city/hwy avg of 21mpg towing drops it to 13 in our very hilly drive to the lake.
