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


This is a fantastic car. I have driven it for the past 3 1/2 years and I have had NO problems at all with this car. When Edmunds said this car was reliable back in 2005, they were on the mark! Please see positives and negatives below.

Best Features

1) Very very smooth driving. It's like riding on cotton. The steering is soft. Was pretty much identical to the Lexus RX that I test drove. 2) Reliability. No problems with anything, which should be the case with a new car. Great job Toyota.

Worst Features

1) Toyo tires that came with the car were not great in the snow. 2) If you have more than 1 window open, especially the back windows, there is a loud thundering noise which is unbearable. Not sure if fixed this in new model. 3) Cloth seats are hard. I recommend getting leather if possible.
