You'll Like The 2007 Toyota Highlander If...

Like fast acceleration but think being green is equally important? Toyota promises zero to 60 miles per hour acceleration in about eight seconds with the two-wheel-drive Highlander Hybrid, and the four-wheel-drive model should be quicker yet - due to that additional electric motor.

Large enough to have room for 5 people comfortably and a smooth driving car.

I like my car a lot. It drives like a car yet feels like a SUV. I have been a Toyota buyer for many years. My husband prefers them as well. I am a very nervous driver and the highlander's size helps me feel safer than the Camry I owned prior to the highlander. When I am ready to purchase another car it will be another highlander. Probably one or two years old. The last car I bought new was a fully loaded 2003 Camry that I gave to my daughter who is about to pass it down to my granddaughter. It still drives like a charm.

My car is super comfortable and affordable. It's a hybrid so it that's an extra perk. They can last over 300,000 miles with minimal problems and gas milage is also good. Along with it being hybrid, I have the limited edition which includes leather interior, heated seats, automatic, 4 wheel drive, a sunroof and a small three row seat. The car can fit 7 people (5 comfortably)! I drive a lot for school so this car is the perfect vehicle to purchase for it. By far the best decision I made was buying this car!

Once the third row seat is up, then there is no more room for stuff in the back.

I really like my car because it's an all-wheel drive so I can take it anywhere especially up to the mountains during winter season. I can bring my whole family and still has a lot of space except when I have to use the third row seat, then I don't have a space for bags and luggages. It takes too much gas so it very expensive. Lastly, the break is always a problem for me. There are times when I had to really step on the break just to make it work.
