Not a Seven Passenger Vehicle
By ztimulating on


2014 Toyota Highlander Limited 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Well these must be selling lot hot cakes because the dealer tried to add $500 to the price when we picked it up.
We ordered the Limited in order to get the safety package toyota calls the "tech package".
the tech package costs $1500 but of course only available on the highest trim - worked on us.
I took the car to work on volunteered to drive everyone to lunch.
OMG how embarrassing, each guy only got one "cheek" on the back seat.
dont try to stuff three grown ups in the back seat, it doesn't work.

Best Features

You could slap a "L" on this for Lexus and nobody would know the difference. extremely quiet, lots of power and stop. the up to date electronics on the limited are great. 0-60 in 7.1 seconds, folks a 1970 Chevelle SS 396 does it in 7.0, this crossover has a lot of go. The navigation is very good, after verbal directions it gives a second ding when a turn is required, helpful. just hope it is upgradeable.

Worst Features

It has a forward facing camera and radar, why the heck wont it automatically stop to prevent rear end accidents. so far 17 mpg, I assume that will improve to over 20 as we break in the engine. Cant believe how heavy the hood is, hey Toyota - use some aluminum!
