I recently purchased a brand new 2010 Toyota Highlander, fully equipped including tow package. Although only having driven it about 3000 miles, mostly long trips, I am totally in love with this vehicle. Handling and ride smoothness is exceptional. When you need engine power for passing, etc., it is certainly there. Dash controls are very easy. Keyless system is superb. Fuel consumption is averaging almost 21 MPG, which on long trips I was hoping for 23, but this is acceptable. Rear seats are very roomy and rear cargo space is very good. NO brake issues, NO floor mat issues.

Love the Highlander. We got the base model 4wd, and don't feel like we're missing out on GPS and fancy rims. Only drawback to the Highlander is poor city MPG. It does fine on the highways, but I'm getting about 12 MPG in the city. For me, my wife, infant, and 90lb poodle, it's the perfect size.

Have the 6cy/FWD Highlander Limited for 3 months and very happy. I have driven vehicle on a 1200 mile trip at Christmas and got great mileage(23+ mpg) and very, very comfortable. Driving around town averaging 18+ mpg. Love the fact it uses regular gas. Love the six month trial of XM radio, good gas mileage, comfortable, quiet and handles very nicely.

I have a 2005 Highlander with 180,000 miles. The only repair needed was a front wheel bearing. I get up to 24 mpg on trips, 19 in town. Runs like new, but we take a lot of long trips, so I'm looking for a new or nearly new. highlander. It is very comfortable, good in Minnesota winters, and hauls a lot. Best car I ever had!

Best Buy So Far

by from on June 1, 2014

I am so pleased with my new Highlander. There is just enough room for my family of 4 without feeling like I am driving a van. This car handles the road easily and is a perfect fit for us.

With a growing family, our RAV4 (2008) wasn't large enough. We purchased a 2010 Highlander. I can't believe the difference in space. It has SO MUCH room! The gas mileage isn't the best, I had wanted a Hybrid, but they are hard to find used. I also went from having a Limited RAV4 to an SE Highlander. I miss some of my options, but I plan to install them after market. It did come with the power moonroof, heated leather seats and heated exterior mirrors. I'll install a remote starter and bluetooth myself. Overall, I'm pretty happy. I got a great deal and I find that this is such a comfortable ride!

Love the car, hate the nav system

I've driven my new highlander ltd (has most of the high end options) for 5k miles now, after owning a 99 4runner for 4 years. I love the comfort (I'm 6'3"), the ride and the options on the car and would highly recommend it EXCEPT for the Navigation system..a total waste of money. First, the displayed level of detail (street names,secondary sts,rte numbers) is so minimal until you get to very small scales that it is useless in finding a particular road/intersection. Perhaps most annoying is the inability to change/search ANYTHING if you're going more a few mph. This means on a long trip even your passenger can't search for a restaurant/poi etc unless you pull over. Same w the blue tooth phone, you can only access 'favorites' if the car is moving unless you voice dial..but then you have to know the number. Don't hesitate to buy this car but save your money and get a good Garmin GPS..you'll save a ton and its much more convenient. This lockout is becoming common on many makes (a misguided safety "feature") but at least one of the big Japanese mfgs has opted out..smart move. The dual climate w rear works well and the mileage displays are interesting. I'm getting 18-19 mpg according to the display w mostly highway driving. Interstate is around 20mpg. Using the 3rd row seats is easy but, as expected, you then have minimal cargo space behind them.
