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


This car cannot make up its mind what gear it should go into. It drives like, (I'm not kidding here), my old 3-speed K-car from the seventies. It can't seem to change gears without first dropping into passing gear, even at 70+ mph in cruise control, thus the "Lurchmobile". But at least I have the comfort of knowing that it looks beautiful and handles like I'm towing a trailer. I guess my overall rating is a 5.

Best Features

I will be able to sell it even in a bad economy, I hope.

Worst Features

New transmission. Better handling.
