My 2006 Highlander is still going strong, without any problems. It's been a fun, reliable, and totally worthwhile ride. We're getting ready to retire a 1989 Corolla, and the plan is to get another Highlander.
Leather seats, roomy interior without being exaggerated (I do not want a van!). The cargo area is great, as is the roof rack. The outside is also perfect: whether you're wearing your running shoes, business suit and high heels, or ski suit, this vehicle makes you look good.
