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


It's an amazing upgrade from my 98 Madza MPV all-sport. Drives like a sedan. Sometimes I felt it's even quieter than my wife's 04 Camry. The engine is powerful and quiet even when driving up the Cottonwood canyon mountain resorts. Well designed interior controls, which are large and easy to reach. Storage is plenty with many cup-holders. I consistently get 21 mpg (city/highway combined) for my commute to work. Trip to California in July on highway and gets consistent 24 mpg. View isn't as good as my MPV (maybe I'm still trying to get used to it).

Best Features

Interior controls, storage, leg room on all rows, powerful engine and quiet ride.

Worst Features

Need to have split 3rd-row.
