I would recommend a Toyota highlander to anyone looking to buy a SUV.

Very reliable and only small repairs have been needed. It has 210000 miles and it still has a lot of pep and is nice to drive. I really like the third row option that my highlander has. I drive it every day and it has been a great car overall. I would definitely buy another one. The only thing I would change is the plain interior design and get leather seats. Of all the vehicles I've owned over the years this one has needed less work and maintenance overall. My passenger side window motor quit working and the middle seat belt needs replaced, it does have a small oil leak but as long as the regular maintenance is kept up I believe a highlander is a good car.

Older car still runs great- good value vehicle.

My car is over 10 years old and it is doing great. Of course there has been some wear and tear here and there, nothing major though. I did regular maintenance on the car, tire rotations and replacement, oil changes, breaks, etc. And it is still running great. One down side of the car, mostly because it is older, is it does not have an AUX port to plug your phone in and is not Bluetooth capable. Newer versions do have that feature. I have cloth seats which are very comfortable and they do not get too hot or cold. It is pretty spacious, and the hatchback is great! I live in an area that gets a good amount of snow and it handles well in the snow.

Very good brakes, some button problems, but overall a very spacious car.

My car has really good brakes and accelerator. A problem I have with this car is the power steering fluid leaks. Every once in a while I have to refill the power steering fluid under that hood, but it is not too difficult. Also, over time, some of the radio buttons do not work. However, I can still control the radio from the steering wheel buttons, which is really convenient while you are driving with your hands on the wheel. Something I really enjoy about this car is that it has a lot of room. There are a total of 8 seats and 3 rows of seats.
