Comfy, fuel efficient, and safe ride.

2018 Toyota Highlander LE

I love my ride! Because it is a lease situation, I was able to afford owning a brand new vehicle for 18 months. The monthly payments are affordable. More details of the car itself, it does exactly what I need it to do which is primarily keep my family safe. The all wheel drive for the weather conditions works perfectly for the region I am in. It has a large enough capacity to seat everyone. Gas mileage is decent for the size vehicle, making it extremely affordable. No mechanical issues in the last year, making it reliable. As far as looks, it's all black with some sleek alloy trimming and wheels. The lights are luminous, lighting the road clearly at night. The ride itself is smooth. The acceleration is good enough whereas if I needed to gas it a little bit, I would be able to make evasive maneuvers. The height is great to be able to see better ahead of other, smaller vehicles which may lay ahead of me on the road. Inside has comfy seating with a decent sound system and easy to use console. I like how easily it is to connect my cell phone via Bluetooth for when playing music or audio books for a hands free ability. I am able to also answer incoming calls without taking my eyes off the road. The weight of the vehicle for its size seems very balanced and nibble. I have made multiple trips to and from ct to NYC with a comfortable ride, everytime. I really have nothing bad to say about my vehicle. Again, it does everything I need it to do. Gets me from point a to b, both comfortably and safety with more than enough room for my family as well as personal effects. Oh, forgot to mention, the seats fold down which allows a large capacity of space to move personal effects...

Premium safety, comfort, and performance in Toyota Highlander

2018 Toyota Highlander LE

I have owned too Toyota Highlanders in the past five years and have absolutely loved them. The vehicle's performance, safety, and comfort all bode well for families with children and single adults alike. I was recently involved in a head on collision in my highlander and walked away with minimal injuries. I credit the vehicles superior safety programs and vehicle design. I chose my second highlander as a direct result of how safe the first one was. I wanted to ensure that my family and I would be safe in our vehicle while enjoying the comfort and reliability as well. I regularly service my highlander to ensure premium performance to include wear and tear, gas efficiency, and general reliability. The Toyota Highlander is by far my smartest decision in all the years I have owned a vehicle. I would recommend this vehicle over most vehicles any day!

The car has a large capacity central console which is great for organizing items

2018 Toyota Highlander LE

I really like my Toyota highlander. The interior is clean and comfortable, I really like the dash with a shelf, and the central console is very deep so there is lots of room for a box of kleenex and other things. The third row is really easy to put up and down, perfect for unexpected extra passengers or cargo. One thing I don't like is that if you put the middle seat forward (to allow someone to get in the back), the seat has to be pushed way back before it will click into place. This can squash the person in the back. If you forget to put the seat back in place once people have climbed out of the car, it will bang back and forwards as you drive along. A very minor problem; the car is pretty perfect I'd say.

- Louise M

It's definitely a cooler mid size SUV in place of a minivan.

2018 Toyota Highlander LE

Toyota Highlander has so much space for large families and good space especially if you travel. The safety features like the back up camera and side mirror blinkers definitely come in handy. The third row was a must and the kids love it as well. Everyone fits comfortably. I do have to say that there are a few blind spots however, it may be due to my height and not the vehicle. The air handling in the back seat comes in handy for the people who sit in the back seat and the third row as well. Toyota is a very dependable vehicle

- Barbara M

Amazing car, but little space inside.

2018 Toyota Highlander LE

It ride very nicely, I'm not saying it a bad car, it's just very small, it's supposed to be a 8 seater but the last three seats are in the back with really no space, so yeah, space is a problem. I like how it has lots of features, and it drives smoothly. And it looks good from outside and inside as well, like I said before it's really nice I would rate it the highest it could go, but the space is not that much for me.

- Jonathan N

Lots of safety features that can be customized based on your preferences.

2018 Toyota Highlander LE

I love the size of my vehicle especially the extra sweat option in the back. Lots of amazing safety features such as blind spot detection for side and rear view. GPS navigation build in and Bluetooth enabled. Sometimes the safety assistance will beep starting going out of the lines when you're not but you are easily able to turn this feature off. Very safe and reliable car that I recommend especially for a family.

- Mary B

Overall great family vehicle.

2018 Toyota Highlander LE

I love that the driver seat has so many options for comfort and getting it set to the exact position for each individual driver. The gas mileage for this size SUV, as well as the 7 passenger option is what drew me to buy this vehicle. It has been very reliable and has great handling and power getting into interstates and traffic. I would definitely recommend this vehicle to my friends and family.

Great car for snow and ice

2018 Toyota Highlander LE

I live in the northeast US. The car is very good in the snow. The best I have driven in bad weather. I also like how it rides like a car. It is a very smooth ride. The size is good. The 3rd row is tight. The center console has lots of storage space. The all weather mats are a big help to keep the car clean. The leather is easy to wipe down and care for. All in all a fairly good car.

- Andrea M

Highlander high expectations high performance.

2018 Toyota Highlander LE

Performance is reliable and excellent so far. Great suspension smooth ride. Very roomy and seats up to eight passengers no problems experienced. Has safety features on its side mirrors, safety lanes and all wheel drive. Toyota care for two years free oil change and inspection. Dealer reminds you it is time for check up and easy to make appointments.

- Elizabeth C

It is great for families and it has a camera in the back to simplify things.

2018 Toyota Highlander LE

My vehicle is very reliable, we have more than one year with it and it does not show any problems so far. It feels very smooth when driven and it has the latest technology. The bad thing is that the gas could last more and when the brakes are pushed the car stops for a system of gas saving, but overall it is a great car and amazing quality.

- Valerie N

About average compared to other SUVs

2018 Toyota Highlander LE

The car drives nicely. It's about average on fuel usage (20-25 mpg) compared to other SUVs. My kids hate this car because it is tight in the third row (and the second row isn't so roomy). I bought this car for the captain's seat which I love. I haven't had any technical problems with the car other than air issues in the tires.

- Meredith V

Lots of space, User Friendly and Safe

2018 Toyota Highlander LE

Lots of space for a lot of people, but also easy to park not too big. Good as a family car, or a suburban car. Recommend if your a parent and/or are a commuter. Toyota computer system in the car is also very user friendly and intuitive. Very safe too, was in car crash on freeway going fifty MPH and nobody was hurt.

- Anthony G

For a sports utility vehicle/crossover it handles very well.

2018 Toyota Highlander LE

Lacking most up to date technology and features that others in the class. I am not very impressed with the design and comfort level of the vehicle. It's a very reliable vehicle. It does have good gas mileage and handles well. I rarely have issues with Toyota while I have had problems with many other new vehicles.

Toyota 2018 highlander best car for you and your family.

2018 Toyota Highlander LE

My husband and I needed something for our growing family and at the same time it's a luxury ride. Our kids love it we often go on family road trips and it's perfect it's a 7 seater and we have a lot of space for travel bags etc! Everyone compliments us on how nice our ride is. We haven't had any problems so far.

- Jorden W

My Highlander I love it. Will buy another.

2018 Toyota Highlander LE

We have had no problems. The ride is super. The fuel economy is average the performance both on the street and freeways is excellent. The performance on rain, ice, and snow is excellent. The dealer service has been excellent, courteous, and convenient. The electronic features are easy to use and very convenient.

- Jerry G

Loving my Highlander! I enjoy driving my Toyota Highlander very much.

2018 Toyota Highlander LE

I love my highlander! It's very comfortable for my 4 children and all my children love this car. It drives very smoothly and so far no problems yet. It has a backup camera which I enjoy having and the trunk space is very large for my children's activities to put all their sports gear in the trunk

- Kimberly C

My vehicle is great but I would want them. To improve on the comfort and features.

2018 Toyota Highlander LE

The car is reliable and its performance is top notch but the comfort and features could do with some more improvement... It should be more aesthetically done. The features are ok but are not really top notch as compared to the new Toyota rav4. So work is needed in the comfort and feature level.

- Char I

very nice and secure. I love the seats

2018 Toyota Highlander LE

nice reliable vehicle. Good space for people and groceries. Good miles per gallon on the road and even in the city if you know how to use the accelerator pedal. The seats are very comfortable, the GPS is nice, but could be a little better and more interactive like google app GPS for example

- jefferson S

Highlanders are the only car you should drive.

2018 Toyota Highlander LE

My car is amazing. I drove my last highlander for 10 plus years and will do the same with this one. I never have to worry about it. Very reliable and I know my Toyota service people will take the best care of my car. I drive 464 miles to NJ and back and know I am safe in this car.

- Jessica O

This is a Very Comfortable car to ride in and drive.

2018 Toyota Highlander LE

It is a very comfortable car and rides smooth. It has Plenty of space for storage and also room for extra passengers. I live in New England and it was great in winter driving and made me feel very safe. The Toyota dealership I go to has been wonderful to work with.

- Stephanie D

Great all around! Best car I have owned!

2018 Toyota Highlander LE

Comfort and features are awesome! I love the third row and space. Leather seats with cooling and heating feature is a plus! GPS is an added bonus. Smart car that keeps me informed of needs. Smart remote that can simply stay in my purse!! Appearance is great!

- Kelly M

My ride, my vehicle, my enjoyment!

2018 Toyota Highlander LE

Very reliable, gas mileage not so great, very comfortable, handling is excellent. Hatch has to stay open to haul anything large, like wood (2x4s).I would definitely purchase another. Stereo system is also excellent. Visibility is excellent nothing is obscured

- John D

Very comfortable and safe truck vehicle perfect for a family car.

2018 Toyota Highlander LE

So far a great vehicle. Have no problems. Gas mileage is better than I thought it would be. 24.6 mph. It runs smooth and it has lots of space and storage inside. It can be fast if you push the gas. I feel very comfortable and safe inside my car everyday
