Overall good car but not without some design issues.

2010 Toyota Highlander Base

I enjoy this car generally. The size of the car is good. There is a large trunk space. Although the car generally is large enough, when the back seats are put up for the third row, problems begin to arise. The third row is very tight and allows for little leg room. In addition when the back seat is put up, it makes the trunk very small as well. If the back row is not needed then the car works well for space. Apart from the size I enjoy the acceleration on the car. It is easy to navigate and drive. The only other issue I have with the vehicle is the blind spots. I find the way in which the car is designed leaves many blind spots while driving and attempting to change lanes. This is increasingly dangerous because there is no rear or side cameras. Besides these issues I generally like the car. It was easy to use and does well on gas.

safe, comfortable SUV that isn't the most exciting

2010 Toyota Highlander Base

I love the comfort of having a large vehicle. I like that I can fit a large amount of people in the car. However driving such a big car is annoying when I'm driving to work alone and have so much extra space and have to park this big car. It is also so safe and feels safe on long trips. Because it's a big car it also needs a lot of gas. The base model is basic and I wish it had a sunroof and maybe leather seats and other bells and whistles. It is a smooth drive though and I feel very safe driving it

Toyotas are the best of the best!

2010 Toyota Highlander Base

I love Toyota vehicles. I had have them for over 15 years and never had any major issues. I will continue to buy Toyotas from here on out. They are very reliable vehicles. My children will drive Toyotas too so that I know they are driving a safe and reliable vehicle. I highly recommend them to everybody!

The seating capacity is not as bad for family trips.

2010 Toyota Highlander Base

Love the highlander. It does nice on the highways, but I'm getting about 12 mpg in the city. For just getting around it make the perfect car. It has yet to fail me. The cost on the maintenance is low. It's very comfortable for a long drive, gas mileage is not as bad.

Great family car or car in general.

2010 Toyota Highlander Base

The car is very comfortable with a lot of space for passengers and storage. It is very gas efficient, runs well and is a very reliable car. In case there is a need to repair pieces are affordable and easy to obtain. A great family car or great car in general.
