2011 Toyota Highlander Limited 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
We splurged on the 4WD Limited and glad we did! This made in USA SUV is a pleasure to drive; a quiet, comfortable ride with ample power on demand. Toyota makes a great V6 engine. Really like the new front end design. Limited features at the top of my list include Smart Key keyless entry, push button start, JBL stereo w/XM, heated seats, back up camera. Find the MPG display gauge useful too. MPG has been about 20 on first 2 tanks - good but could be better. Snow is here and I can hardly tell! Drives very securely through snow and slush. Haven't had to engage the "snow" mode yet. This is a great family vehicle. Kids ask all the time to drive in it.
Super quiet ride and ample power when needed. Smart Key (keyless entry) and push button start are pretty neat. The 19" alloy wheels are sharp. Toyota reliability is icing on the cake.
Could use some more room behind third row seats. Plastic on upper dash could be better quality - looks same as in Corolla. Put in a 6 speed transmission for better highway MPG, and leave out Shift mode - who uses that?
are YOU sure this is a reliable vehicle in the SNOW, we have LOTS of it here in Niagara Falls NY and i'm thinking of getting one, i met someone who said her's (but it was a sport) is NOT good at all in the snow......i'm torn between this and the FJ CRUSIER
