This car has great styling and the interior,ivory, is very impressive. Quiet ride with super safety features that let you know when you are leaving your lane. The seats are the most comfortable I have found. We just drove 1100 miles in 19 hr and enjoyed the ride. I wish I had bought one sooner. The dynamic cruise control and navigation have been upgraded from the 2009 Sienna we own.

When my 2003 Highlander got hit by a truck, we were all safe inside. Unfortunately my SUV was totaled:( So we looked at other SUVs, the Acura MDX specifically, and we could not believe the price for a pre-owned vehicle! The next stop was the Toyota dealership, where we saw this beautiful brand new 2015 Highlander..drives like a dream, although its bigger than what Im used to. The XLE has all the trims and comfort and luxuries of the MDX without the steeper price. The engine is really quiet and the technology is similiar to Lexus. Im very happy with my new Highlander!

2015 Highlander Almost Excellent

I like most of the features and performance of my 2015 Toyota Highlander. Its Blind Spot Monitoring is excellent. I have captains chairs in the middle row which are very comfortable. The back row is great when you need it, but it definitely doesn't compare in comfort. (This is understandable and I don't ding it on this.) The speedometer in my Limited is lousy. The analog speedometer has a range up to 140 MPH and is poorly graduated. Although the instrument display also has a digital area, it doesn't have an option to display the current speed. The worst feature is the range for the gas tank. My initial tank showed a range of about 320 miles.Since the Highlander has a fuel capacity of 19.2 gallons, even at a conservative 19 MPG, it should show over 360 miles. After driving for many miles and with an average of over 20 MPG, it still showed 320-340 mile range on a full tank of gas. On a trip, I decided to continue running the car well below its stated 0 miles range. On the next refill, the range jumped up to over 414 miles. This worked well until my next scheduled maintenance, causing it to drop back to the 320-340 mile range.

Rewarded for Research

Purchased a 2015 Toyota Highlander Limited AWD. I've only owned it for a week thus far. Zero buyers remorse even after paying for the Limited Package. Over the course of the last 2 months I've researched and test drove each vehicle in the segment. After deciding on the Highlander. It replaced our Honda Pilot, and I have to say each one of us loves the new car for different reasons based on where we are sitting. From daycare to the grocery store, and from work to soccer practice, we find little things that make life easier for each of us. Toyota really did its homework in regards to how familys "on the go" use their vehicle. The children like the captians chairs allowing them to pass in and out from the back much easier than before. They feel less cramped, which I hope mitigates the car ride battles. They actually like sitting in the thrid row now, where before they felt seperated. My wife loves the long horizontal shelf on the bottom of the dash. She can toss her phone, work badge, and extras there w/o cluttering the cup holders and middle console. I like tts driving manners which are responsive for a vehicle of this size. Being a gadget head I love the tech which is far and away best in class. Throw in the small details of a rear glass opening for quick toss and go, and built in sunshades for the kids; wow. Its a pure win so far. Save yourself the hours of research and buy one. Use that valuble time on negotiating the price.

Comfortable with design flaws

Our RAV 4 was in the body shop for two months and we had a new 2015 Highlander LE to drive. Very comfortable interior and ride. However huge blind spots with the position of the front posts. Impossible to merge safely or make a left or right turn into a marked space or lane without craning around the posts. The rear deck is really high. This model still has drum brakes on the rear wheels. Mushy feel. And one problem throughout the Toyota line is that screen is not shielded against reflection. Otherwise a comfortable and quiet ride.

Our 2015 Highlander is very roomy and accommodates my wife and I plus our 4 grandkids very well. One complaint I have is with the Tire Pressure Warning. The warning light comes on when (according to the dealer) when all tires including the spare tire reaches 3.8 psi low. Last Sunday the vehicle set out in 27 degree tempurature for 1 1/2 hour and it came on when I got into the vehicle ( it wasn't on prior). I filled them up-2 were at 33.5 and 2 at 34 psi recommended pressure is 35psi. I have relied on this system thinking it was not low low and have ruined 1 tire. Have contacted Toyota and they told me no adjustment to the low setting can be made.

Enjoying new purchase

by from Tampa, FL on September 14, 2015

It handles nicely on the road. the ride is comfortable without sway. Seats are comfortable. I like the heated/cooled seats. Handles good in the heavy rains we have here.

Great SUV, wonderful dealership to deal with, very family oriented and people friendly. Amigo had a wonderful sales person that really worked with us in what we needed in a vehicle and what we could afford. I'm grateful for patience and work ethic as a sales person, She showed us the vehicle in and out and really took the time to meet our needs.
