2010 Toyota Highlander SUV 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I purchased my Highlander in November 2009. 72k miles later and she still drives like she did off of the lot. Plenty of cargo space to accommodate our family of 4. Enough acceleration to make merging onto any freeway a breeze. It's average around 20 mpg. The interior of the car has held up very well. Plenty of room and head clearance (I'm 6'3"). Quiet and soft ride. It handles much like a Camry. We've had no problems, other than the tires wearing out
at 30k miles. Put some Michelin tires on and they have had limited wear after 40k miles. Full brake job completed at 60k miles. Battery lasted 6 years. I do wish it had an outside temp reading on the dash. The 3rd row is very cramped, and hard to get to, but we don't really need it anyways. The car feels like it could go another 100k miles, no problem.

2010 Toyota Highlander SUV Limited 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I really enjoy my 2010 Toyota Highlander Limited. This vehicle definitely has a great amount of power along with a smooth and quite ride. I have previously owned some of Lexus's high end SUV's and I must say I don't see much of a difference in the ride quality, features, style, etc. Granted I did purchase the limited so the features are much improved over the base model. The only thing I can say negative about the highlander is fuel economy. I get around 16 mpg with a good mix of highway and city driving. I understand that is not awful for a midsize to somewhat larger SUV but I just don't like that
they state its 20 city & 27 highway. That being said BUY THIS VEHICLE!


Best Features

Gps (Common people it's 2013 take the 15 mins & learn how to use it), JBL sound system, Smart Key function, roomy, 3rd row seating, rear power lift gate, probable more I'm forgetting to mention.


Worst Features

The only thing I would like to see improved is the Gas Mileage. I barley get 16 and that's keeping my "foot out of it".

2010 Toyota Highlander SUV 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Really the only thing I can think to complain about is the steering.
The steer by wire requires constant correction and has a different feel to it.
AWD was adequete for my wife this winter without winter tires.
Plenty of pickup when you want it!
No outside temp reading on base model??? 29k come on lets add in a few basic options that all competitors have.
I like the interior set up ecspecially the backseat space.
Never get better than 18.5mpg mixed driving with 8k on odometer.


Best Features

Interior space, power, comfort, awd


Worst Features

MPG, external temp reading on base model

2010 Toyota Highlander SUV 4dr SUV (2.7L 4cyl 6A)


Review

Purchased in Dec 2009. 17000 miles later, still loving it. Lots of room for our 2 dogs and camping gear in the back with seats folded down. Very comfortable for 4 on a road trip with the seats up. Rock solid reliability. Bought the 4cyl with tow pkg. We occasionally tow our jetski to the beach and the 4 cyl is more than up to the task. Our only complaint, we were hoping for better gas milage. We have yet to see the EPA rated 27 on the highway, no matter how conservatively we drive. We've averaged 22.1 MPG since new with about a 50/50 mix of highway and city. Our best milage on road trip with just the two of us and no cargo was 25.38. Overall though, very pleased.


Worst Features

Turbo diesel option with an EPA rating around 35 MPG would be outstanding. Please offer reliabile Toyota diesel engines to the US!!!

Review

Well I wrote a review after 15000 miles and nothing has changed.
Same car tires etc., excellent 33000 miles the tires.
I read reviews about tire wearing our at 5000 miles .
I now wonder what that diver did to make them wear out.
Like I stated in the initial review great pick-up styling and love all of the extras.
The only think is that I got a couple of rock chips in the windshield and it is 700+ to replace because of the heated base for the wipersse of heated base for the wipers


Best Features

Adjustments of the seats cup holders slots in the door and dash to hold things.
