Great Value - except Tires
By B Whitcomb on


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


Purchased new in 2008, now have 50,000 without any mechanical problems. Could not have better reliability. Performance is outstanding even towing a boat (16 MPG) I have never gotten less than 19 MPG in town and up to 26 MPG on the highway at speeds of 70+ MPH. Original tires very poor replaced at 33,000 with Briggestone, so far so good. OEM tires were worthless day "1" with hydroplaning the rule not the exception. The interior is comfortable and well laid out. My only problem with the vehicle is my own doing. I tow a 4000 LB boat. It tows with great stability at 16 MPG. The problem is getting up the wet boat ramp with FWD. If you tow opt for the AWD

Best Features

Love the "Snow" Button, manual shift backup camera - easy to hook to trailer, auto AC

Worst Features

Two more inches of driver seat travel for us tall guys.
