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

Review

Splurged and bought the Limited HL, and we're glad we did. Pleased to know it's made in the USA too! The new redesigned front end for 2011 looks sharp. Love the Limited's Smart Key keyless entry system, pushbutton start, reverse camera, heated seats. Also appreciate the MPG gauge. JBL stereo w/XM is wonderful. This SUV is solid and drives smooth and comfortably. Power/acceleration on demand. Toyota makes a great V6 engine. Lots of safety features + airbags galore, so safety is a given. The kids love our HL too, especially the roomy second row seats and their own temperature control. Our first 2 tanks of gas we averaged 20 mpg, which is OK for a 4000 lb vehicle.

Best Features

Really like the looks of the new front end; Limited alloy wheels are sharp. Comfortable ride, brisk acceleration, Smart Key system are tops too, and pushbutton start is very neat feature. I'll assume stellar Toyota reliability.

Worst Features

Upper dash plastic could be better quality - looks same as Corolla. Put a 6 speed automatic in to improve highway MPG and leave out the Shift mode- who uses that? Needs more room for stuff when 3rd row seats are in place. Not sure why 19" wheels/tires are in - costly to replace and reduce MPG.
