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


Car still rides quiet (make sure to use quiet riding tires), has had very few problems that required any major work. Gives 18 city, 22 highway in Summers at speed limit. Take 10% off in CT winters. My car was built in Japan. Only brakes and scheduled maintenance work have been needed. Had engine check light come on after maintenance, but mechanic reset it at no charge. Battery needed change after 6 years. On the negative side, I the old tires wore out unevenly. Now I get them aligned annually. Great SUV. Will buy again if mileage is improved significantly without too much loss of power. This SUV still looks modern in styling and finish.

Best Features

Very smooth car like drive, very tightly built, no rattles. Very reliable and fun to drive. Handles well, has many safety features and looks great even after 8+ years !

Worst Features

Better fuel economy. Keep up the quality and safety record of Toyota as it was in 2001 when this SUV was built ! Provide a Compass with other trip monitoring readouts that are provided.
