2002 Toyota Highlander AWD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Having worn-out our second Blazer we
hit the lots looking for another SUV.
Tried the new GM products...Envoy,
Trailblazer, Tahoe...but one drive in
the Highlander and we were hooked.
The Camry base is evident over the
other SUV offerings, with a car like
drive and handle...smooth, comfy and
hugs the road. We do not tow but
appreciate the peppy V6, traction
system and mpg...a quality buy!


Best Features

All wheel drive, handling, workmanship.


Worst Features

Front console organizer...coins, CD's, etc. Flip-up rear window.

2002 Toyota Highlander AWD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I think most people assume that you
need the V-6 option with the
Highlander, but if your driving is
mostly suburban, the 4 cylinder is more
than adequate. The 4 cylinder also
does well in highway driving. I chose
the 4 cylinder because I wanted to
maximize my fuel economy, but still get
into a somewhat larger SUV. (I used to
drive one of the mini-SUV's)


Best Features

Quiet and comfortable ride, but still firm enough that it handles pretty well.


Worst Features

I'm 6'2", and I could use a bit more adjustability in the driver seat as far as legroom, but overall, I'm pleased with the comfort of the Highlander.

2002 Toyota Highlander AWD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

At the begining, I was really happy
with the SUV. And two weeks later, I
noticed my garage floor had fluids.Went
to the dealer and they found out the
transmission fluid was leaking and
replaced seal. A few months later,
I drove the car with sun roof little
open and it was raining. A few hours
later, water started dripping from
inside right above both driver and
passanger windows. Dealer found
out the drainage pipe was broken inside
of the car. I also installed the hood
protector. If I drive the car
over 45mph, the wind noise is so high
that it hurts your ear. Finally I have
to use tape to seal the gap between the
protector and the hood.




Worst Features

left foot rest is too close to the parking brake.
