So sorry I bought it!!
By Not a fan on


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


Gas mileage not as advertised. Most uncomfortable front seat!! Too short for people with longer legs. Arm rests do not fall in the proper place for people with wide shoulders. For all its bells and whistles, doesn't have automatic locks (when engaging transmission) which I had on my prior 10 year old car and I consider a big personal safety factor. Poor design on console. Wasted space underneath cup holders. Cover on console opens with weight of pocketbook... very annoying. Doors do not close easily... must be slammed to engage lock. Gas cap release in awkward position. Must open door and unlock seat belt to reach. Doesn't have "Miles to Go" on its Info button, which was very handy.

Best Features

Nothing special.

Worst Features

Autolocks when engaging transmission. Increase size of seat. Reposition gas cap release.
