2005 Toyota Highlander Fwd 4dr SUV (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


The car starts and drives dependably. The ride is smooth and quiet. The power is plenty with the V6 engine. Not much value for the price. A $28,000 car should have chromatic rearview mirror, MUCH better sound system, a computer that tells if your oil, transmission, fluids are ok and gas mileage etc. It should have an outside temperature indicator, and punch buttons on the door if you lock your keys inside. Driving experience is dull (as with all Toyotas). The gas mileage hovers around 16 miles to the gallon. My Explorer gets 19 in town. It's supposed to have trailer prewiring, but it does not. It is an EXTRA cost. I see no value in this car. It is worth about $20,000.

Best Features

Interior design is great. I like the low tire warning.

Worst Features

The seat is too short. It should reach to the calf of the leg. It gives you the feeling that you are falling out of it. The radio is really poor quality. A car with that price tag should have MP3 capability and much better sound. .
