My favorite car in the world.

2009 Toyota Highlander Base

It is a light blue color. It is interior is a light beige leather interior. It has a rear view camera. It allows the use of the aux cord. It is a pretty reliable car and my family has had it for 10 years now. It still looks pretty new and is in very good shape. It rarely causes problems and has good fuel consumption. It is a pretty fast car and makes sport car sounds when you step on the accelerator. The handling is pretty easy and makes it very comfortable to drive the car. It is an automatic car and is a 7 seater.

Reliable and spacious car, great for pets!

2009 Toyota Highlander Base

My 2009 Toyota Highlander has been one of the most reliable cars we've ever owned. It is very sturdy, does well on bumpy dirt roads with huge potholes, and has enough space to fit two 140 pound dogs! There was a recall on the vehicles after they came out, but after those were fixed, it has been great to drive. It gets about 20/21 miles per gallon, and up to 24 on long highway stretches.

2009 grey Toyota highlander review.

2009 Toyota Highlander Base

I have had only a few vehicle problems related to my tire pressure light staying on all the time and the gauge not accurately working on all tires. It has proven to be durable and comfortable. The one design feature I would change is the size of the trunk when the third row seat is up. There is barely any room in the trunk when that is the case.

Toyota highlander 2009 great car

2009 Toyota Highlander Base

The car works pretty good for driving through dirt , I like how you could also take out the seats in the very back of the car and put them back in it can be very useful for vacations, camping, trips, etc. If you are like me and have a big family this car will come of great use to you

Third row seating without all the bells and whistles.

2009 Toyota Highlander Base

We just bought this vehicle and have not experienced any issues. Our mechanic said we will need to replace the struts soon. However the dealer put new tires on It so we don't know how bad the struts are. I also had to replace the wipers, but that is regular maintenance.

The most spacious vehicle ever!

2009 Toyota Highlander Base

The highlander is a really reliable vehicle. I've had it for a while with minimal problems. There is so much space in the vehicle I can fit all my friends and our dogs and go to the river. I also use it for my kayak and it is a perfect car for river people.
