Very good vehicle
By Rick on


2003 Toyota Highlander Fwd 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


The Highlander is not very exiting to drive but a very good all around vehicle. It has a smooth ride and is fairly quiet. We average 21-23 MPG. It has been rock solid without a single problem in 47K miles. I agree with the person who wrote in about the wind noise with the back windows down. It really hurts my ears. There is plenty of room for passengers, but at the sacrifice of a little more cargo room. I like that you can step right into it without stepping up or dropping down. Drove it from CT to FL and I wish the front seat was a little more comfortable. Once complaint is that it seems to require constant corrections to keep driving straight on the highway (alignment is fine).

Best Features

Tons of storage space, smooth car-like ride, reliability, decent gas mileage, perfect step in height, reclining back seats, plenty of head room (I’m 6’ 2”).

Worst Features

More comfortable seats, better base stereo and speakers (very flat sounding), glass in the hatch opens separately.
