2008 Toyota Highlander 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


At 1000 miles the engine developed a cold engine knock that Toyota would not fix. They said it was the new piston design, and not a problem. When I unplugged my GPS from the console power outlet the entire console top came off with the plug. Very cheaply made. I don't drive it very much anymore because I hate the cold engine knock, and I'm afraid of what else they might have compromised when they designed and produced this vehicle.

Best Features

Excellent fuel economy.

Worst Features

Improve the engine and interior quality so that it is on a par with previous Toyotas.
