2009 Toyota Highlander Sport 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
This is my first SUV. Handles, accelerates, rides excellently. Was pleasantly surprised on the ease of which it was to park and maneuver. It allows excellent visibility for the driver. The cabin is quiet and external noise from other vehicles or engine noise is minimal. You can listen to the radio at the same volume on the city streets as on the Highway. Doors close solidly and the 2nd row seats are comfortable for full size adults. Third row seats are small, and should be used for smaller adults/older children. Note: Running the A/C will take off 3-4 miles per gallon.
Electric seat, Stereo, quiet cabin, dual control A/C for driver and passenger, separate A/C for rear passengers, rear window hatch opens separate of the tailgate. Backup camera. The option to turn on running light and lastly auto lights off after 30 seconds.
Get a different tire size. 19 inch makes for costly tire changes. Center Console armrest could use a change holder.
