Reliable and comfortable Toyota Highlander

2005 Toyota Highlander Limited

My 2005 Toyota Highlander is a great car. I believe it is very reliable, I've never had a flat tire or any serious maintenance issues. Being an older male, I have had a few issues with the wheel locking while trying to turn my key into the ignition, but it is an easy fix. I do go through gas fairly quickly if I'm driving on highways or interstates. Heated seats and four wheel drive really helps in winters! I strongly believe Toyota Highlanders are very comfortable and reliable cars, I have had mine for 5 years and I have no plans on finding a new vehicle

Toyota Highlander 2005 still doing its job

2005 Toyota Highlander Limited

The highlander is a good vehicle. We got it used but it runs well and was well taken care of. I love the leather seats that are heated in the winter and the sunroof for the summer. Having a JBL sound system and a tape deck are an added plus! We had to recently replace the rear brakes but it was easy and not too expensive. Easy car to maintain and fun to drive.

- Allison J

highlight of the car is you can turn the heat on for the people in the back

2005 Toyota Highlander Limited

My car is reliable and comfort great for a family. My car performance is awesome I haven't had any problems since I bought it 4 years ago. This is an amazing car you should go get you one. The comfort of the car is amazing I thought SUV were to big at first but I feel safe in my car while I am driving.

An oldie but a goodie... keeps on ticking!

2005 Toyota Highlander Limited

This vehicle has every bell and whistle that was available on it at the time of purchase in 2005. Everything still works perfectly. It's a an attractive, very comfortable car that I thoroughly enjoy driving. The gas mileage is excellent. It handles beautifully, I prefer it to the newer car.

Toyota highlander is a great car.

2005 Toyota Highlander Limited

It is a great car that can run for miles and miles. Rarely have problems with it. Interior is nice and big. Great with high mileage as long as you take care of it. One problem is the ac has been making loud noise for awhile and not sure the cause or reason but works majority of the time.

- Noah S

Very reliable and comfortable vehicle

2005 Toyota Highlander Limited

My cars AC does not work and sometimes the steering wheel shakes when I brake. Very comfortable ride with good acceleration and gas mileage. Not too big but definitely not too small with lots of storage and cargo space. Currently has almost 200k miles and still drives great

- Alexandra F

Like that is it is like an SUV. Big enough to feel safe and small enough to park.

2005 Toyota Highlander Limited

I feel safe driving this car. No major issues. Toyota holds their value pretty well. Would recommend getting a Toyota. Even being 14 years old there has not been any major repairs that had to be performed. Just basic oil changes, brakes, tires and just maintenance items.

- Kim F

Toyota highlander is a real workhorse!

2005 Toyota Highlander Limited

This vehicle is roomy and easy to drive. It is really a workhorse, and, with 160,000 miles in it, has been super dependable. We do not use the third row seating very often but it comes in handy now and then. Gas mileage (about 23 mpg) is good for the size of the vehicle.

- Mary L

Comfortable, reliable, Toyota Highlander

2005 Toyota Highlander Limited

Great gas mileage for an SUV. 3 row seats are a lifesaver. I did have to replace the motor at 180k miles. Handles well. I was able to pull a pontoon boat behind it for many years. Its comfortable roomie, except in the 3rd row seat. Only small people will not back there.

- Cass B

I find it really fun to drive

2005 Toyota Highlander Limited

My vehicle has not had any real big problems aside from my starter going out and the light in the dashboard is not working for whatever reason. I finally got it going; however, just like any vehicle it is going to have problems regardless of how you care for them.

- Daniel D

Nice family size car. Over 200,000 miles & it still runs like its new.

2005 Toyota Highlander Limited

I've had nothing go wrong, other than normal wear & tear. Such as tires, breaks, rotors etc. We have a family of 5, so like all the extra room the kids have. My only suggestion is more room in the rear. When the 3rd row seat is up, you lose a the trunk space.
