2004 Toyota Highlander AWD 4dr SUV w/3rd Row (3.3L 6cyl 5A)
Good: ride, airbags, tether, handling. Bad: quality (started rattling at 20000 miles), warranty repair, failing steering column at 31000 miles in non-demanding driving conditions (mostly flat or slightly hilly terrain). Very dissapointing experience with my 3rd Toyota.
Ride, safety, carseat anchoring.
Improve quality of the vehicle and quality of the Toyota service departments!
Solid quality car with a great view of the road. Back to the dealer only for upgrades or recalls. Original tires lasted 19000 miles, replaced with Bridgestone. Exterior remains in excellent condition looks like new.
Easy entry, comfortable seating, air conditioning and heating are excellent
provide outside air temp. and compass as standard item.

I love this car- SUV! I have had no porblems at all with 50,000 miles so far. Great storage, love the third seat option, and great visibility. I once had a "neck problem" and most SUVs were too "trucky"- not the Highlander- drives like a real car. Great in the snow! The only little annoying thing is that the tire pressure sensor light comes on (on the dashboard) and has to be reset frequently.
I love the ride - smooth. I love the features and storage possibities and the third seat. Most of all, so very reliable!
Fix the tire pressure sensor light to be less sensitive. A bit noisy if any windows are open when on the highway.
I always buy Toyota because of the reliability and quality. This is no exception. Yes the ride is a little uncomfortable, and the tranny does feel awkward in certain situations, but so far this car has not given me any problems not one, it had a minor recall issue but Toyota took care of it at no charge; some sensor needed to be replaced. I would recommend this SUV to anyone who needs security to move around on a day to day basis.
Quality and reliability, gas mileage, peace of mind and simple.
Transmission could use some help and more comfortable seats.
