Not My Best Decision
By George on


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


I thought I was making a great informed decision buying this vehicle given the Toyota reputation for quality. This was my first non big 3 SUV. I think the interior is ok in terms of design. The heating/ac panel is complicated to use. The windows make visibility a little more difficult than I would like. The transmission has some interesting options to downshift and upshift, but it is unclear as to the benefits. The performance in snow is awful. I have no idea how this has a good snow rating, worse than most cars I have had. The owners manual is very uninformative as to some of the most important features of the case. Overall it is going to be a quick trade here.

Best Features

The sound system is very good. Interior design is nice.

Worst Features

Tires, snow performance, visibility, owners manual.
