The Toyota highlander is the highlight of my life!

We, (my husband and I) have a 13 year old Toyota Tacoma that is still in excellent condition and is super reliable. So when we decided to get another vehicle to accommodate our growing family, that is why we again chose Toyota for our second vehicle. The Toyota highlander we chose is very spacious and can comfortably seat eight people, which will make it ideal for my family and especially any lengthy trips we take. There is also ample room for suitcases. I was a little hesitant at first to purchase an SUV because I am used to driving a much smaller vehicle, but I was pleasantly surprised on how easy it is to navigate my new highlander. (I especially like the "backup" feature that allows me to better visualize what is behind me. The hands free synchronization Bluetooth with my cell phone is great also. Added features, such as auto dimming of my high beams (when an oncoming car approaches), automatic braking if I get too close to a car in front of me are fantastic also. Overall, I would highly recommend the highlander or any Toyota vehicle.

You can trust the Toyota dependability.

My Toyota highlander limited AWD is fun and easy to drive. I love the limited trim look, ventilated seats, interior lights and large console storage. It has a shifter still instead of a transmission dial. I prefer the feel of the shifter. The second row is extremely roomy when you slide the seats back into the third row. There is plenty of cargo space too when the third row seats are down. This car boosts many safety features such as blind-spot monitoring, driver's lane assist and cross-traffic monitoring. I my opinion, Toyota has the best blind-spot indicator because it is built right into the side mirrors and is larger than other car manufacturers. Changes or features I'd like to see: a capless gas cap, indicator of switch tire is low and a better remote start feature that does not turn off when you open the car door. The stereo sound needs some tweaking as too much sounds emits out of the dashboard speakers rather than the nice JBL speakers in the door.

Comfort, safety, reliability and style.

My Toyota highlander limited edition is comfortable and an enjoyable drive with easy steering and driver safety features that include blind spot monitoring, backup camera with cross traffic indication and lane assist. Heated and ventilated seats add to the comfort. Blue interior mood lighting and puddle ground projection lights are nice features. The automatic lift-gate is rather slow to open and close and if a tire low pressure light comes on, the vehicle does not indicate which tire is low. Automatic start is disappointing as the range is short, the start is delayed about 5 seconds and the vehicle turns off once you open the door. Keyless entry and start are convenient. Sound system is good quality with jbl speakers. There is ample trunk space especially if you lay the third row seats down. Center console storage is very roomy. This is my third Toyota vehicle. They are reliable and provide peace of mind when owning one.
