Mostly as expected but not everything
By pma022 on
2009 Toyota Highlander Sport 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
Own this SUV for nearly 2 years. Reliability is good. No issue so far. But there are quite a few rattling noises from dash,2nd and 3rd row seats. It's definitely not as serious as mechanical or electrical problem but sometimes is quite annoying. Dealer said it's from under seats and cannot fix due to safety issue.
Another problem is the very weird tire size. They're top expensive. Change a set will charge $955 at Costco and $1000 at America Tire.
Basically it's a comfortable and fast car but Toyota can make it better.
Exterior size is not too big/not too small, quiet (except rattles) inside, 3rd seat is not very narrow for adults, material quality is no cheap, rear window is big so it's easy to see when doing reverse
Rattles and squeezes: Wish Toyota can do more test drive at their design center and teach dealers how to fix them
Tire size: Please use more popular type
