Leased It, Gonna' Buy It
By Dan Martincic on


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


Because my new job came with a company car, it made sense to sell my pickup. However, this left my family without a vehicle to haul pets, outdoor gear and any large items (couch, lawn mower, etc.). My wife, bless her heart, agreed to trade in her Lexus ES 300 for a Toyota Highlander. Five years later, she still loves her Highlander. The ride, the convenience for hauling people and things and especially the great sound system (the girl loves her country music). Rather than replace the it when the lease is up, we're buying it. It runs so well and has needed only very minor repairs. This is a well designed vehicle built by Toyota. Enough said!

Best Features

The smooth ride for an SUV is great. And man it can hold some very big items.

Worst Features

The exterior is still a little "station-wagony" looking. I don't have the answer, but I think the back end could look better.
