Versatile, stylish people mover!

2011 Toyota Highlander Base

I really love the Toyota Highlander because of the seating versatility. There is a third row that seats two people that can be folded down for plenty of cargo space. The second row also can be two 'captain' seats with a) a 'walk through' space between them or b) a cup holder/storage insert between them or if you need more seating there is a 'bench' insert for the second row. The second row can be folded down as well for more cargo space. This vehicle can be a 2-7 passenger car. We use it mostly as a 3 person and we carry our 88 pound Labrador in his large travel kennel.

The Toyota Highlander is a great car.

2011 Toyota Highlander Base

I have loved this car since I got it. It's 8 years old now. It is comfortable. I have a large family and needed to seat six. This Highlander held us all. There is a luggage rack. You can put both sets of back seats down if you don't have many passengers or need to move something large. It has been very dependable. The only thing I'm not a fan of is there are cup holders everywhere! I wish they had just added extra storage. It's a great car and I plan on driving it until it gives out but I don't expect that for several more years.

Everything is in reach and easier to access and allow focus to driving safely.

2011 Toyota Highlander Base

I love that seats adjust to up and down forward and back since I am short. It has many buttons for heating or air conditioners to adjust front and back. It has a CD player. Only part I miss having is the part where you can hook the phone into car to play music using a cord. The Bluetooth for music to link to my iPhone is confusing and cannot seem to figure it out. Love that I can answer phone calls directly from dash of car and have map view already in car. Could use extra trunk room for vacation traveling or carpooling.

This vehicle is big enough for a family and road trips and is reliable!

2011 Toyota Highlander Base

This car drives very smoothly and is absolutely reliable. It has had very few problems in the 7 years I have owned it. The only issue I have had is that the tire pressure light is broken so it is just always on. I love the v6 engine and how quick the pep is for a big car. I have two kids and love how much storage I have with two car seats and strollers! It has a good backup camera although I am sure the newer ones have better ones. I love this car and would buy another one.

Great SUV for a family of 6.

2011 Toyota Highlander Base

It is a great vehicle with enough power to easily climb hills and I am planning on taking it on a cross country road trip and have no concerns about its reliability. I have four kids and they are comfortable in the car although the third row is a bit tight. I wish I had purchased a higher level of trim for the features, but it is fine and works well for me. For a big SUV, the gas mileage is not bad.

2011 Toyota Highlander Comfortable seats, handy switches and dials

2011 Toyota Highlander Base

All the buttons and dials for the radio and air conditioner are easily accessible. Drivers seat raises and lowers electronically. The second row has ample leg room. Two can fit comfortably, but three can fit if small or if a little smooshed. Third row can fit two children comfortably or small adults. Not very much legroom in third row. It would be nice if the second row seating folded flat.

2011 Toyota Highlander - recommend!

2011 Toyota Highlander Base

Bought used at 80,000 miles, one owner, good condition. Has a lot of great features like temp control for both front and back of car separately, fold down 3rd row seating, and 4 wheel drive. I only had one issue since I bought it with the steering column, which I was told was very common with this model and was covered under the warranty.

The most comfortable and reliable vehicle I've ever purchased

2011 Toyota Highlander Base

I use this vehicle practically all the time for traveling to work and vacation. This vehicle is big enough to accommodate my family of five and is not too big to handle on a busy highway. It is extremely comfortable and reliable, thus far. I hope it gives me five more years of use.

Gold color family vehicle, with all the essentials for adults and kids.

2011 Toyota Highlander Base

It is got a lot of room for my family and great for long trips. It drives smooth and has a lot of power when needed. I love the upgrades like leather seats and sunroof. I've had a great experience with Toyota so I would recommend this vehicle to all my friends and family.
