2011 Toyota Highlander 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Excellent vehicle overall.
Excellent alternative to a van.
Previously owned vans for the past 10 years (Sienna & Odyssey).
It was time for a change.
We shopped around for the best mid size replacement as an alternative to a van at our price point.
Our biggest concern was loosing the versatility of a van, which will always be there.
We drove the Ford Edge, GMC Terrain, and Toyota Venza.
Of the three we ruled out the Edge & Terrain.
The Venza was the best of the three.
We then realized a must for us was a 3rd seat to accomodate additional passengers as needed. We realized we had to increase our price point & test drove the Highlander.
We immediately realized this to be a perfect fit.

Best Features

Based on budget, we were unsure that the technology package was worth the price or need. Today, we are glad that we added this package. The two most favorite features we use quite often are the flip rear glass & the hands free phone. We did also add the towing package for future use & the cold weather package which includes the heated mirrors & lower windshield grid which will be an added benefit in the winter months ahead.

Worst Features

There are only two improvements that we can suggest at this time for future models. One is adding four single touch window switches for up & down (all windows) especially at this price point. This vehicle has this feature for the driver window only. I have found this feature to be standard on vehicles with a much lower price point such as a Camry. Second is shielding the back up camera lens (in the tech pkg) in an attempt to avoid water drops that obscure the camera.
