Comfy family vehicle for all events
By Jeffrey on


2009 Toyota Highlander Limited 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Bought for more than 7 months and like it more every day. Blind spots was a concern at first but big rear mirrors ease the worry. A great highway cruiser as my main purpose to buy. Drive is smooth but not sporty even good power V6. Leans quite a bit in sharp turn but secure with light steering, low road feel and average steering response. The keyless start and power hatch are great plus for every day use. Most materials used are good quality except some textured hard plastic. Better than FORD and GM comparable models. Truck space is tight when 3rd row seat is up, which is not split and has tight leg room. Center on the 2nd row is too small but outside seats are comfy.

Best Features

Backup camera in navi screen. Large rotary knobs for temp control and stereo. Keyless start, power hatch door. Clear instrument dials and no reflection under the sun. Foldable 2nd row center seat and hide away for 3rd row entry. Puddle lamps to enter and exit the car.

Worst Features

NAVI lacks speak of street name which my <$200 portable unit can. Narrow and short 2nd row center seat for long trip. No split 3 row for carrying long item with 2-3 passengers. Quicker and heavier steering; 6-sp Tranny for V-6; more space behind the 3rd row.
