2012 Toyota Highlander SE 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
We have owned
2012 SE V6 for about a month, traded in a 2004 Lexus RX 330 which was the best car we have ever owned. We looked at a new RX 350 before deciding on the Toyota.
The Highlander is larger than the RX inside and out and has more legroom and cargo space. It is less stylish, but for about $8 grand less we decided we could live without the Lexus badge on the hood.
The Toy has great power, decent if somewhat numb handling, and we're averaging 21 MPG in town, 24 MPG highway. The ride is very, very smooth with just a bit of jiggliness on the interstate.
Very pleased overall.
Great car to pick up the grandkids
Trick 2nd row seating
Nice blend of power & economy
Toyota reliability/resale value
Steering needs more road feel
Ho-hum styling, bland interior
