Vehicle2009 Toyota Highlander 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
ReviewSafe, reliable vehicle. Transmission optimized for fuel economy. With foot off gas, engine cuts fuel to fuel injectors (engine braking) to save fuel and slow vehicle. Fuel cuts back in around 20 mph, which some complain as a "surge" upon deceleration. Excellent in snow! Handles potholed CO roads exceptionally well. Bland, comfortable ride. (Note Sport and Limited models have lower profile tires which are poor, at best, in snow.)
Best FeaturesUnlike previous highlanders (including current Highlander Hybrid), uses regular fuel. Powerful. Tows 5000# Toyota.
Worst FeaturesSofter interior materials, better fuel economy is always a plus.
