Perfect for any sized family!

I love my Toyota highlander! It is always reliable, I can always count on it to get me to where I need to go! It is good on gas and it fills for an affordable price. I use my car a lot for nannying and babysitting kids. I love this car because it is spacious and fits car seats as well as other children comfortably. It is easy to clean, I vacuum it myself and it never takes more than 30 minutes. You are drawn to the Toyota highlander for its functional, family-friendly nature, frugal gas mileage, consistently good reliability, high resale value, and standard advanced safety features. The Toyota highlander is a great midsize SUV. The highlander provides a comfortable and quiet ride. It sports a handsome interior and a long list of standard safety features. Its available v6 engine scoots the eight-seat SUV around confidently. For its mixture of quality and value, we named the highlander a finalist for our 2018 best 3-row SUV for the money award. It is not perfect, though. The highlander's four-cylinder base engine is a little light on power, and though passenger space is sufficient – the third row is cramped for adults. The current highlander generation has been on sale since 2014. You can save money by shopping for a used model, but if you are interested in the highlander’s advanced safety features, the 2017-and-newer models are your best bet. A 2017 refresh added the Toyota safety sense package to the highlander’s standard features. I bought mine used for 4,000 and do not regret it!

Reliability and comfort all in one.

My car is super reliable!! I bought it used. I have never had like any problems with it. The only thing that has ever happened was that a screw came loose once, but that was an easy fix. Great car. My car is very spacious. I can fit all of my stuff in it. When I moved to college, everything I needed fit in it. The only thing I dislike about my car is that it is a 5 seater and not a 7 seater. Everyone loves my car. The sound system is really good too. My far is super safe too. The gas it gets is not the greatest, but better than some. The trunk space is really great too. I would not trade my car at all. It is reliable and easy to take care of.

Highlander is a good family car or for college students with plenty of space.

I truly love driving my highlander. I feel that I do not need to force the car, and when I drive long distances I am very comfortable. I have kept my car in good condition including the interior, exterior, and maintenance on the engine. One issue that I had run into since owning the car has been, the check engine light will come on even when there is not a problem. However, my mechanic has been very helpful to keep my car running well. This is a great car for families with lots of room and good stereo system. My highlander has been through tough weather conditions, but I have never experienced a problem with the way the car drives.
