Best things to know about the Toyota highlander.

Absolutely love our Toyota highlander. We had a RAV4 first and it was way too small. The highlander is a great size. You cannot deny the dependability of a Toyota. They run for years and years. The ride of the highlander is very smooth. Nothing bouncy like a lot of SUV’s. There is plenty of room in the back for luggage of any kind. We are avid shark tooth hunters, going down to Venice, FL this year three times now and our highlander had plenty of room in the back for hauling our tooth rakes, chairs, umbrella, and beach buggy. Plus all our luggage! The open hatch on the back window is a real time saver. Open it to get a towel or suntan lotion without having to open the whole trunk, saves a lot of precious beach time. Love the auto door locks since this day and time is dangerous for car thefts, is a good feature. The highlander has many other features which are probably standard on most of them. Power seat, cruise control, etc. We have had Toyota products for years from trucks to cars, but the highlander is our most favorite. Hope to get 300, 000 miles out or of it. The back seats lay flat so moving small pieces of furniture is also possible. There are two third row seats, so a total of 7 people can be hauled. The two back seats would be great for children or small adults. The price of the highlander is comp. To others, but a bit more than the Nissan Pathfinder, but I would for sure spend the extra money for this wonderful car.

Overall, a great family vehicle!

This Highlander is the first Toyota and first SUV I've ever purchased, so I was very careful in deciding if it was a good fit for my family of five (at the time). I knew I wanted a vehicle with a third row and that was comfortable for some light family traveling. The third row in this particular Highlander is workable because the seats adjust to make more or less space. It is more comfortable for my shorter daughter to sit back there than my taller teenage son, however neither have complained about discomfort when sitting there. I do wish the trunk space was a bit more vast with the third row in place. Other than that minor setback, the Highlander is very comfortable and has been very reliable on the road. I live in the Midwest with varying weather conditions and I have always felt safe behind the wheel, no matter what Mother Nature throws at us. I personally enjoy the heated seats and the touch screen radio. I appreciate the side mirror signals that alert me to a car in the lane next to me. We do a fair amount of driving both the highway and city and have no complaints about the gas efficiency. Overall, I would rate the Highlander an 8/10. Great family vehicle!

It has more advanced features and it has an ability to match the higher end cars.

The car I have is a Toyota highlander 2017 limited white. After shopping around on turecar.com I was able to get a good deal for my car. Performance for my car is really good. It gives me an average about 24 miles per gallon. The seats are comfortable with heating and cooling available to both front seats. A person can fit in easily and gives extra comfort while driving. The car also has a pre-collision system and also a lane departure alert which helps and notifies us if we try to change the lanes without using the signal lights and also if we are not concentrating on our driving. The car also provides a feature of a blind spot monitor which helps while changing lanes. It shows a light on the side glass as a notification for lane change if someone is coming next to us. The car also comes with a navigation system and also a Bluetooth enabled Audio player where it gives a possibility to connect our devices to play music in the car with the help of our phone. The car also provides a USB way for playing the music.
