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


Review

This is second Highlander for us; the first (2002) is still going strong after 120,000 miles. Have 4500 miles on this one and other than the recall have no issues. Rides well, great visibility, great for towing a 3500 lb boat, and rides well on long trips.


Best Features

Reliability and economy for a SUV--18.5 in town and 22-23 on highway at 70 mph with air on.


Worst Features

Better quality leather on seats, more adjustment on power drivers seat" memory seats, and improve the backup camera screen so it does not fade in sunlight.

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


Review

Purchased our highlander in May09. Needed space for new baby & 2 retrievers. Looking for a vehicle to mostly highway but clearance for winter and some bush roads.Live in northern British Columbia with winter from Nov to April.Performed well in winter with Winter Michelin's. (Standard Bridgestone tires are for summer use only, almost found out the hard way with a late season snowfall.) Stability control kicks in frequently in town but not on highway. Is a very comfortable car for long trips . Fuel economy could be better but it is a awd heavy vehicle.


Best Features

It is a great GLORIFIED STATION WAGON. (aka a cross over)


Worst Features

Roof rails could be longer (like previous highlander) Make the third row optional or removability for more space. A nice 3 liter Turbo diesel would be nice..

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


Review

This thing is great. Drives smooth, quiet inside, huge power. It rolls somewhat on corners, but it's tall, what do you expect?. The interior design is fantastic. It has plenty of room in the middle row and sufficient room for short adults in the 3rd row (though I wouldn't want to sit back there for a long road trip) and certainly big enough for kids. Also cool: the third row folds flat easily & the tonneau cover and insert from the middle row both stow in the car - no lost parts. The visibility out the back is limited, so backing up is fun, and the slab-like hood and front fenders make it difficult to see the corners.


Best Features

Moron-proof 3rd row, sliding 2nd row, Cheaper than other 3rd row-equipped AWD mid-sized SUVs

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


Review

I wanted to purchase true SUV, did not look much after test drive for Highlander. Smooth, powerful engine,easy to park,lots of room for kids in 2nd row.Steering is bit light so on highway not a top performer but just need to be careful,brakes are strong, so far gas mileage is excellent for SUV.


Best Features

Engine power,smooth, comfortable ride, brakes.


Worst Features

Light steering needs to be bit heavier at high speed.

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


Review

Just traded an 2007 Acura MDX with a 2010 base 2.7 base Highlander with 3rd row. At first , i regret it. The Acura is so much fun to drive while the Highlanders including the SE's and Limited are sleepers and drove like Minivans. Recently, I installed a much better looking leather than the factory ones called Classic soft and had DVD with live TV called Flo-TV and this van has been amazing. We could watch ESPN, MSNBC, Disney,Nick Jr. ,MTV., abc, nbc, etc. This 4 cyl is high on low range torque and just as powerful as a V6. Great MPG and zero percent deal


Best Features

6 speed , not the outdated 5 spd found on SE's and Limited Frugal on Gas. I'm getting as much as 33 mpg on the highway, 27 mpg combined on my scan gauge 2 meter. non OEM leather by classic soft trim Flo- TV, best invention since the internet


Worst Features

ugly Toyota gauge , toyota should install Lexus, Acura gauges like my 09 LS 470 and my previously owned ACura tech mDX
