Compared to my Jeep Liberty (which this replaced), the Highlander is amazing. It has just the right amount of space, gas mileage is impressive, and don't let anyone tell you that the 4-cylinder engine isn't powerful enough; it has more than enough "get up and go". Rides very smooth and quiet.
The Blizzard white color is very nice. Drives like a Lexus without the $$$$
I do wish that features such as compass, outside temperature, and miles till empty were available features on the base trim level.
