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


Great vehicle. Chose a FWD V6 model in
granite blue, well-equipped but
not "loaded". Only problem was a
salesman who was clueless beyond
belief. The price went
up after we ordered, and we could
never get a straight story on where
the vehicle was or when we were
getting it ("on a ship, on a train, on
a truck, on a train..."). When we
finally got it, we loved it. Only
quality problem is an air leak around
side rear window that 2
visits to the dealership still haven't
fixed. Also,when rear windows are open
(even slightly), it sounds like we're
riding in a helicopter. Dealer
said "they're all like that...close
the windows and turn up the AC!"

Best Features

220HP V6 motor- docile around town, but fearsome at an on-ramp.

Worst Features

Goofy fold-down cup holders on side of drivers seat, and lack of dash-area storage. Optional console retrofit priced @ over $400 (unit, installation kit, and labor).
