120K and going strong
By Anne on


2001 Toyota Highlander V6 2WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Bought used 12/03 w/27K miles; now just over 120,000, & though overdue a major check-up & first tune-up, I've had few problems. Mileage still avgs. 20-21 mpg & might improve a bit once tuned. Except for routine maint., have only had to replace some sort of emissions sensor. Ck engine light came on a few times at first, but once I realized it was always right after oil change, & they weren't reconnecting an air hose properly after ckg the air filter, I always warn them about it, & it hasn't happened since. Htg&A/C intermittently switches over to opposite of what it's set on. Turning temp. knob over & back resets it so haven't fixed since entire panel must be pulled - big $$$, I'm told

Best Features

Zippiness/maneuverability/handling; reliability; riding higher than a sedan without it being a gas-guzzling behemoth

Worst Features

Qty/location of front cup holders, no center console, flukey htg/A/C problem. Must "pack" last three gallons when filling tank - kicks off WAY too soon, but, like the htg/A/C problem, that may just be mine, not all.
