2009 Toyota Highlander Sport 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Pros: Very sharp looking SUV. Nice lines. Paint and trim seem to be above par. Quiet when driving and it has a great sound system with the JBL 6 Disc. Very smooth shifting vehicle with plenty of power from the V6. Cons: Front seats are not designed for men. I'm 6'1" tall and find it hard to get into a comfortable driving position. Seats are also way too hard and do not offer enough leg support. The Sport model rides rough on uneven surfaces. However, it is very smooth on even highway roads. Currently experiencing an odd shutter at light throttle use. This is a random event and may go away with time once the computer learns our driving habits. Overall: Nice vehicle for my wife.

Best Features

JBL Sound system, Wheels, Sunroof, V6 power. Lighting package.

Worst Features

More then one MP3 port. Bad location of MP3 port. Door side moldings to protect the doors. Mud flaps standard. Power passenger seat on the Sport model. Seat memory. Bigger front seats for men. Dual exhaust with chrome tips. Split third row seat. Second row needs a real seat in the middle.
