Great Vehicle for Young Drivers

2002 Toyota Highlander Base

The vehicle runs really well in the winter, especially throughout the snow. The seats are comfortable and the blind spots are minimal. The gas mileage is fairly decent and there are hardly ever problems in the engine compartment. I love all of the space in the back of the car and especially when the seats can be folded down. It makes moving much easier.

I know I can always count on my Toyota Highlander to get me where I need to go.

2002 Toyota Highlander Base

My Toyota Highlander has been an amazing SUV. The only issue we've had that reoccurs is with the brakes and parts around them. We've had to replace them multiple times, not just the brake pads from normal wear. We've had this issue with our other Toyota's as well, but I still believe they're the most reliable and long-lasting vehicles.

Middle row can lean back all the way, which is great when I'm travelling.

2002 Toyota Highlander Base

Paint is a greenish color I've had this car for about 2 yrs, the paint is somehow peeling off. Other than that is a good car. Hasn't given me any issues. It alerts me when I get a low tire pressure right away. The only bad thing about it is that it has a tiny trunk after you use the third row, not much trunk space.

Quality, comfort and class

2002 Toyota Highlander Base

Looks great, feels stable and grounded while driving, good visibility from drivers seat, comfortable, controls within drivers reach, holds lots of cargo and even more when back seat is folded flat, decent gas mileage. Con: check engine light issues in last 4 yrs-minor emissions leaks, gas cap issues are irritating

Longevity at it's finest!

2002 Toyota Highlander Base

Mileage is currently at 226k. Other than a few windows not working, and needing coolant every few months, as long as the oil is changed when it's supposed to, the car runs great. Drives very smooth. We did have to have the AC unit sent out to get rebuilt, but that was just last year (2018) and the car is a 2002.

Reliable Toyota Highlander

2002 Toyota Highlander Base

I love my Toyota Highlander! It has been so reliable even for a 2002. It drives really great and provides comfort for me and the family. I haven't had any issues with my vehicle other than the normal wear and tear of an older vehicle. I would recommend Highlander's to anyone who is considering a midsize SUV

- Ali M

Great, Reliable work SUV.

2002 Toyota Highlander Base

Great reliable vehicle. Great gas mileage, and decent features. Turns extremely well for an SUV. Not a vehicle that will draw attention but looks okay. Stock stereo system is pretty good too, nice base. Decent off road capabilities too, I can always drive it on to my work sites.

- Travis R

There's really nothing interesting about my car. It's just like any other car.

2002 Toyota Highlander Base

Seems like if one thing goes wrong with it then something else goes wrong with it. But it has a lot of room in it. Another downfall is that it has no cup holders in the front. It has a big trunk. The back seats are comfortable and you have a lot of room in the back.
