Not A Bad Drive

2005 Toyota Highlander AWD 4dr SUV w/3rd Row (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


I bought this vehicle mainly because of an earlier family purchase of a Celica back in 1985 when my 2 brothers & I beat the heck out of it. This version however isn't exactly what I expected. First, the paint had chips at delivery, then one fog light was out & EVER since I owned it, the automatic shift isn't so fluid & the city gas mileage isn't near the "average" at all. A/C on a hot day just doesn't get cold enough! The car is indeed fun to drive but the driver's seat seems to tilt too forward almost making one feel like they're falling off the seat. Having said all of these things, I still feel it's a good, highly rated, vehicle.

Best Features

3rd Row (although tight), ride quality, excellent workmanship.

Worst Features

Smoother shifting tranny, improved gas mileage, tilt of drivers seat & A/C temperature.
