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


My mother-in-law bought one of these that was a dealer demo in 2009. The Highlander is such a nice, smooth ride, and the 3.5L V6 pulls incredibly well. I've driven this car for many miles and have always enjoyed it- excellent visibilty, smooth smooth smooth ride, strong acceleration, etc. The best I saw was 26 MPG on the highway; not bad. One thing to be careful with on this vehicle- it's very easy to lose track of how fast you're going. The smooth, quiet ride doesn't communicate the fact that you're going 25 over very well :D

That being said, I would own one of these. She traded it in with 50,100 miles for a 2013 Camry Hybrid XLE because she didn't need the SUV anymore. Excellent truck!
