Very safe and nice car. It has 140,000 miles on the car.

I have owned my 2003 Toyota highlander for 3 years now. It has been very trustworthy for the past 2 years, but this year I just started experiencing problems with it. However, it is an older car so I do not expect it to drive perfectly. My car runs very good on gas and very reliable and I feel safe driving it. I had problems with the muffler a few months ago and got it fixed, and after that I felt a lot better about the car. I especially liked how reasonable repairs are on this car, it is not very expensive since it is not considered a 'luxury' car. I think that Toyota's are very reliable, and I highly recommend buying a Toyota, especially for first time drivers which this car was my first car that I got when I got my license.

The 2003 Toyota Highlander is tough, reliable, and has stuck by me for years

My highlander is a tank. It's taken me across the country and back. It's taken me up mountains, back in the woods, and through big cities. I have probably put more into it in repairs than I should have, because I've moved a lot and struggled to find mechanics who have the same values as I do. At 160k miles and 15yrs it's finally giving me trouble that I'm actually worried about � a shaking when it downshifts. Worried it's the transmission and that it will be a big fix. I'm going to a new mechanic in a few weeks to get it checked out. Best features: cupholders in the back and almost zero blind spots

Toyota highlander. The vehicle offering reliability, looks & convenience.

My Toyota highlander has been an amazing vehicle. It is beyond reliable. It has never left me stranded. It runs smooth and quiet. There is very little to nothing I could complain about if I am being honest. My only tiny complaints would be road noise upon cracking a window, which is not really a complaint. Slight sliding tendency on wet roads which only happens if you start too quickly or stop suddenly. I will upgrade my tires the next time and do not expect this will be a problem after that. Overall, my car has been an excellent purchase that I would gladly make again.
