2006 Toyota Highlander Hybrid 4dr SUV AWD (3.3L 6cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


The Highlander is a good family car without having to drive a mini van. 3rd row seat comes in handy with young children. I prefer this body style to the new one. I bought the hybrid hoping for decent gas mileage. I have been very disappointed in this regard. I might get 20 mpg on a good week. It does have a lot of power. No mechanical issues to date. I would recommend the car if you like the styling. The JBL sound system isn't that great. I would get an after market stereo.

Best Features

Exterior styling and third row seat

Worst Features

Toyota's interior designs are very weak. The gas mileage stinks for the hybrid. A friend got a non-hybrid Honda Pilot that gets as good as mine. The cup holder design in between the front seats is bad and has broken. Pressure with only rear windows down is unbearable. Needs an iPod hook up.
