2014 Toyota Highlander: Weekend MVP
October 22, 2014
I'm not sure which door I opened most during the past three days while driving our 2014 Toyota Highlander, the driver's door or the rear hatch.
I took four high-school girls and their overstuffed backpacks to and from school. I picked up Benjamin Moore paint and supplies, plus a room's worth of new baseboard from Ganahl Lumber. I returned 110-inch curtain roads to IKEA. I dropped off three Hefty bags of old towels and bed linens at the Goodwill. I delivered four show choir superstars and their individual clothes baskets of costumes, stage makeup and hair products to the performing arts center for an all-day dress rehearsal. I drove five Girl Scouts to Hollywood's Ripley's Believe or Not museum on a Saturday evening.
None of those errands would have been nearly as convenient without the Highlander's efficient nav system, power rear hatch and easy-folding third-row seats.
The Toyota SUV was definitely my weekend's MVP.
