2011 Toyota Highlander 4dr SUV (2.7L 4cyl 6A)


We bought this car 9 days ago and have managed to put about 500 miles on it with a long Spring Break weekend included.
So far we are averaging about 23 MPG city and 27 MPG highway, so it is beating my gas mileage expectations for choosing the 4 cylinder.
This is a pretty powerful 4 cylinder, so it performs very well - even with it packed with family and luggage.
If you test drive one, you will be pleased.
There is a little bit of noise at low gears, but the 6 speed makes it pretty quiet afterwards.
This base model has everything I actually use on a car, so we are happy. The interior is very pleasant and the looks outside are very sharp, especially with all of the chrome.
Good buy!

Best Features

I really like that the center of the middle seat can be folded up and tucked under the front console to turn them into captain's chairs. Pretty neat!

Worst Features

It would be nice if the floor for the back seats was lower like for the middle ones. It kind of makes you feel like you are sitting in airplane jump seats like the flight attendants use. Another thing is the feature of the A/C system that automatically opens it back to fresh air about 4 minutes after you press in the recirculate air button. We thought something was wrong, but the owner's manual confirms that it is supposed to occur. An annoyance to have to keep pressing the button if you are in a batch of stinky traffic and don't want it to come in the cabin.
