I bought the 2007 Highlander after my RAV 4 was totaled because I wanted a sturdier car. I love the way this car handles and enjoy the extra room. I wish the car had automatic locks though. The exterior paint and the interior console seems to chip or mark easily. Other than that I really love this car.

Perfect All Around mid-size SUV

4wd Limited - The vehicle is a perfect blend of car comfort, handling, MPG and value, along with the space and key features of a SUV. The intuitive interior design, the material quality, the powertrain (V6 5spd auto) is perfect in its acceleration, responsiveness, and fuel economy. A/C blows ice cold in triple digit summer days (AZ) - My only 'wish' is for an aux. input for an iPod and a higher quality sounding stereo (I have the JBL upgrade). Those to items are easily remedied.

Looked at Outback, CRV, also but settled on the highlander. Comfort is great, interior layed out well nice touch with the wood. No blind spots with D post. Quiet. Darker glass is harder to see out of when backing at night. Wish gas milage was a little better always had 4 cylinders 6 uses more but knew that going in. Had it 4 months and wife still loves it.

SUV without the gas guzzling stigma

As a committed Volvo owner (3 over the past 20 years), I decided to break rank and go with Toyota because the new Volvos are becoming too pricey. Knowing how dependable the old Volvo 4 cylinders were, I decided on the AWD 4 cylinder base engine for my Highlander which I've owned for about a month. It has proven itself wonderfully and I know I've made the right decision! My initial impulse was to go for the V6 given the size of this vehicle but was won over after I test drove the 4 cyclinder on two occaisions. I am consistently getting 22-23 city and 27-28 highway. Yes, I am a conservative driver but also a very satisfied customer. We are now a Volvo/Toyota family!

We were encouraged by many to check out the Highlander. We're glad we did. Besides needing some belts, with over 118,000 miles, everything checked out. We are very happy with this purchase so far. We usually keep vehicles for many years so we are hoping this holds up to its reputation.

The only complaint I have was the original OEM tires (which may vary from vehicle to vehicle). After replacing with a set of Michelins it's just about a perfect urban/suburban SUV. It's not for serious off-road use.

This was my first car and it is a 2007 Toyota Highlander I was looking into other cars and nothing about them really stood out to me until i saw the highlander the whole idea of the car was perfect my parents were looking for something with a lot of airbags which it had, a lot of safety features, and good review which the highlander exceeded. It is extremely roomy and really comfortable I would recommend this for any beginning driver and for parents looking for a car to buy for their son or daughter.

I love this vehicle! The Highlander may lack a flashy and trendy style but it is comfortable, provides a smooth ride, is dependable and reliable. My personal opinion is that the craftsmanship gets very high marks when you look at the lines, the materials, and how the materials flow with the design compared with other makes. True, the designers need to upbeat the creative but that's not what I look for in a set of wheels. I look for a car that I can trust.

A couple months ago we traded in a highlander for a CX-9. The Highlander was not a bad vehicle at all. But like many Toyota's it lacks style. So if your looking for something flashy, it is not a great option. Where it did excel is reliability. The highest maintenance bill we had was $427.00. That was one time, every time from then on we never paid more that $60 for service. Surprisingly it is good on gas for an SUV. We averaged around 22-27 mpg. The downside is the Highlander is smaller than other suvs in its class. It doesn't seem much bigger than a Rav4. Ours had a 3rd row but unless you are 5 feet our under it's not that useable, although the second row does slide. The interior is pretty boring, but it is very easy to use everything. Ours had a V6 and the power was decent but it could have benefitted from an extra 20 horses or so. The ride is very smooth, it sucks up bumps well. All in all the Highlander is a good vehicle. However, I feel for the price, features, ergonomics, and driving dynamics that there are better options such as the Murano, Cx-9, or Veracruz.
