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


Went from G35 to Highlander Sport 4WD - big change, but surprisingly a nice transition. More pickup and power than I thought it would have, nice ride (although coming from a sport car, a little too soft, especially steering feel). My kids like the 2nd row capt. chairs, and I'm glad the 3rd row folds flat - hauled home a 46" LCD TV, no problem!

Best Features

Exterior looks, interior layout. 8 billion cup holders. JBL stereo w/bluetooth, main LCD display.

Worst Features

More info in owners manual (what exactly does the "snow" button do?). HID or Xenon headlights should be standard. Don't need autodimming mirror with the standard dark tint on rear glass. Make 18" or 20" wheels standard - only two different 19" tires available!?!
