A few steps below excellent
By mugman1 on


2014 Toyota Highlander Limited 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Had the car for 2 1/2 years now. Have had some creaks and rattles with the headliner (which persist despite being replaced under warranty), rear shocks needed replacing under warranty as did the rear window struts for the hatch. Generally a nice car, but the transmission is too lazy in downshifting, resulting in a car that feels slow around town, all in the name of fuel efficiency I believe. If you step on it, it goes, but there is always a 1-2 second delay from when you stomp the gas to when it downshifts and moves. Other than those issues, we are satisfied.

Your impressions jibe almost exactly with mine. (I posted a review a couple down from this one.) Thanks for the review.
