Happy but.....

2005 Toyota Highlander Fwd 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Smooth at first, now after 10k miles the engine little rough in idle, missing a lot of details found in less priced toyotas Ex. instrument panel lighting found in camrys and corollas, temp display, hood gas strut as in camrys, a more modern instrument panel ala solara. Be careful with the "millions" of options, they are good but will confuse you and drain your pocket, do your homework at home, 4 cyl is enough, powerful ,better mileage than 6 cyl, uses 87 and tows 3000lbs vs 3500 in the 6cyl

Best Features

The fact that the 4 cyl engine is available, any other make only offers 6 cyl, smooth, feels bigger than what it is

Worst Features

Sunroof controls, what a mess!!! open this way?, close this way?, which way to open or to tilt?, then when you park the car, you have to check the sunroof from the outside to see if it still open, climb back in the car and keep on playing with the button. Make the 4 cyl 5 speed automatic.
