Happy new owner
By Don on
2010 Toyota Highlander 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
Months of research and test drives came down to Flex vs. Highlander. Went with Highlander largely due to more conservative styling. Extremely quiet, comfortable car. Black after-market leather looks sharp with silver exterior. Great visibility, light steering, easy to drive. Factory tires seem questionable, prone to slipping under even light acceleration. Ride can be a bit bouncy, but overall a very refined, quality vehicle.
Nice looking inside and out. Quiet ride. If quality lives up to reputation, I will own this car for 10 years.
Sharp bumps are handled nicely, but more gentle ups and downs in the road make the car bounce and sway more than I would like. It is also clear that the tires have poor traction in wet conditions; I am worried about snow traction this winter. Highlander tends to slip.
