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


My last car was a Mercedes R350 I bought this Highlander as a last resort...and I could not be happier. I got this truck in June of '08 when nobody was making any kind of deals, and finding a reasonable lease was impossible from any manufacturer. I'm amazed by this truck. It has plenty of power, a ton of room in the back for gear. The third row seat is a little small, but its great for my small kid (Girl 6yrs, Boy 2yrs). Fuel economy is around 23mpg combined city and Highway which is a huge improvement over the R350 which was around 18. This is an all around great vehicle which is a big compliment from a guy who never wanted an SUV.

Best Features

Changeable 2nd row seat from a bench into 2 captains seats with arm rests with a center storage compartment and drink holders. Brilliant!

Worst Features

Split the 3rd row seat.
