We purchased our Highlander 5 weeks ago and have 2200 miles logged. The comfort and practically of the interior is superb. It drives very well, quiet cabin, and we love the bluetooth and rear view camera. The V-6 has plently of power and average 24-26 mpg on the hwy. In mixed driving 22 mpg. There is also plenty of storage.
bluetooth, lift-up glass hatch, big display, and the quiet cabin.
update: 9,000 miles later, and we have found the Higherlander to be an excellent vehicle. It's many features and spacious interior make family road trips a breeze. In the latest 1,400 mile round trip, I recorded 25 mpg on the highway, for a V6, that is great. It drives well in wet weather and smooth on highways. My biggest complaint (my wife loves the steering) is the steering wheel, it feels like you are driving a much smaller SUV, at times it even feels numbs or overly "loose" when making a turn. Overall, great choice for anyone wanting a solid and spacious ride.
