Highlander 4cyl with 3rd seat
By luvthetoyotas on
2009 Toyota Highlander 4dr SUV (2.7L 4cyl 6A)
I purchased the car this weekend. Hard to find a 4cyl with the third seat. Drove ~300 miles to pick it up, so I got a little highway time and have driven it around town some. I drove both the 6cyl and 4cyl models and really like the balance of the 4 with the 6 speed transmission. Sure, it won't win any drag races, but the performance is very good. If you want a sports car, buy one. I got ~26mpg on a brand new motor driving 75 mph. Mileage will only improve once it's broken in. So far - love the Highlander. Rated reliability high from my experience with my other Toyota products.
Interior, exterior, gas mileage. Love the little LED that just barely illuminates the console area. Second row seats are fantastic.
Would like a trip computer and outside temperature on the base model - even my $16K Scion has that...
