Poor Navigation System
By Scott on


2009 Toyota Highlander Hybrid Limited 4dr SUV AWD w/3rd Row (3.3L 6cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


We love the soft leather seats and smooth ride. The Navigation System is difficult to use and not very intuitive. The Nav System in my 2006 Acura MDX is far superior...easier to use....has much greater utility. Wish I had saved the $2K and bought a $200 hand-held GPS instead. We always have to mapquest destinations because of the Highlander's frustrating nav system. Other than that, nice vehicle, although getting the advertised MPG is a challenge, so far, unachievable....best we've gotten is around 23MPG combined.....you really need to drive conservatively to get close.

Best Features

Smooth leather seats, lots of legroom in the front and back seats.

Worst Features

Scrap the Nav System -- use what Acura uses which is far superior. Make the vehicle a bit longer, adding more storage behind the 3rd row seat. Many of the smaller SUVs should consider a slightly longer vehicle. There is hardly any storage space behind the 3rd row -- can barely stash golf clubs.
