2011 Toyota Highlander 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


We went back and forth for months between the Honda Pilot and the Toyota Highlander. We finally chose the Highlander because of the smooth car like ride and spacious middle row. The visibility is quite good and I forget that I'm driving a fairly large car because it seems quite nimble. With that said, there have been a couple of disappointments. I had to take it in within the first 100 miles for an alignment issue and more recently (now at 350 miles) I've noticed that the driver's side door has a tinny, rattling noise when it's closed. I really dislike waiting for 3 plus hours at a dealership to repair things that should have been assembled correctly at a factory.

Best Features

Smooth ride, spacious middle row

Worst Features

Initial quality could be improved. Wish there was more room between the tailgate and third row for groceries etc. Would prefer darker upholstery.
