You'll Like The 2009 Toyota Highlander If...

If a well-regarded mid-size crossover with an optional third row tops your wish list, you should take a good look at this one. It's feature-laden, neither too big nor too small and shoul...

Happy Toyota highlander review.

There have been a few glitches in the electrical system like interior lights staying on when they weren't set to. I also had issues setting the radio stations once where they kept jumping to the next button and not setting until we stopped the car. There have been no performance problems. It is a very reliable vehicle. The only time it didn't start is when I left the lights on. You have to be careful with how the switch works. The seats are a bit uncomfortable for me because I am thin and small and they seem to hit my bones in all the wrong places. I love the all wheel drive during snow storms. All in all it is been a good vehicle. I'd buy another.

This is an incredibly reliable vehicle with good looks and price.

This car has been a great value to our family. It has been safe, reliable and cost effective. It drives nicely. Has great space for passengers and luggage. Comfortable on long trips. Handles relatively well in bad weather and has good gas mileage for an SUV. We now have over 115, 000 miles and she is still driving well. Handles both city and highway driving. It has great pick up. Can hold Its spread on the highway and keep up with traffic all situations. We have only had a few mechanical issues with it in all the years but we change the oil every 3-5, 000 miles and get the fluids topped off regularly. The Toyota brand has been very good to us.

Toyota highlander fantastic vehicle.

I highly recommend the Toyota highlander. I have never had any major problems with my vehicle. It is a very reliable car and is extremely comfortable, even in the 3rd row. The seats are easy to put down for extra cargo space. The heated seats are a great feature and the dual climate control. The rear seats also have there own controls. It has automatic seats and a lumbar support. The air condition is very powerful and cools off the car quickly. The heat works just as well. Overall the Toyota highlander is an excellent car that I highly recommend. I would definitely purchase another one in the future!
