2009 Toyota Highlander Limited 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
Toyota has proven that they put a lot of thought into their design with every cubic inch of the inside being carefully thought out. Seat comfort is great, leg room is never an issue, even for a 5'8" adult in the 3rd row. 2nd row recline is much easier to operate than the competitors. The car handles exceptionally, even with 19" wheels in 6 to 8" of snow, with the snow button on it is hard to make the car lose control. Hands free controls and individual climate controls are a plus. I am convinced for the money and the quality of this vehicle, you won't find a better car. From it's lower priced "rivals" from Kia & GM to overpriced imports such as Acura and Lexus, the Highlander is IT!
Heated seats, individual climate control, added traction control for snow and other cold weather items, tow capacity, diverse seating options, and great sound system.
20" WHEELS!!! Very limited on 19" tire replacements. Turn signals built in the mirrors would be an added safety benefit. Would like to see slide down back glass in all Toyota SUVs. Better blutooth link system that works more like a blutooth earpiece.
