Buy the V6
By Robcowling on


2003 Toyota Highlander Fwd 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Bought the 4 cylinder for my wife, she
is ok with it, but I can not stand to
drive it. We thought we would get
better gas mileage out of the 4
cylinder but that has not been the
case. We get 19 mpg every time,
sometimes less. On a recent trip, we
got 22, no where near the advertised 22-
27 mpg. I have talked to those who
have the 6 cylinder and they are
getting the same or better gas
mileage. So it makes since to buy the
V6 and have 80-90 more horsepower while
getting the same gas mileage.

Best Features

Runs very smooth and tight, just feels dependable.

Worst Features

Don't offer an underpowered 4 cylinder unless it gets considerably better gas mileage than the V6.
