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


Good car, but it does have problems. I don't know if we got a lemon, or if this is just the way this car is. We bought this car new, and since then have only put 45,000 miles on it. The engine is very noisy now, which can't be due to a bad driver. The family member that drives this is very gentle with it, making no use of the 200-some hp engine. Gas mileage is pretty poor for a Toyota, even if it is an SUV. Had to replace the blower fan and motor for the a/c 3 times already. It's starting to go out again. Original brakes are still on it and even though they don't need to be replaced anytime soon, they still emit a soft high-pitched sqeal.

Best Features

Cargo space (didn't get the 3-row seats), audio system, the V6 241-hp engine, AWD

Worst Features

fix the problem with a/c, brakes, little more comfort wouldn't hurt, WAY better gas mileage (this is a toyota, SUV or not, should get gas mileage like a toyota, especially if it's build on a camry chassis)
