2006 Toyota Highlander 4dr SUV AWD w/3rd Row (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


V6 AWD automatic drives like a manual transmission driven by someone who doesn't know how to shift. Toyota says all is within specifications and transmission will "learn" how I drive. Hasn't yet. Hesitation, overreving, underreving, hard shifting. Console area leaves a lot to be desired. Not enough spaces to put things. Speedometer should only go to 110mph; half of it is never used. Lumbar support is nice. Vehicle has a good amount of room. Wouldn't buy again.

Best Features

Roominess of interior.

Worst Features

Fix the transmission. Change the speedometer. Redo the console.
