"No complaints. Have had eight good years and it is still a good ride and good value. Have an itch for a new car but in reality, I like what I already have and cannot justify spending the money for a new car."

Best vehicle I've ever owned!

"We bought this 2002 Highlander V6 AWD new, after owning 3 Camrys, because it was well-built and on a Camry chassis. This V-6 Limited AWD vehicle is efficiently designed with good cargo space, yet enough style, space, and comfort for professional use, including leather seats. Perfectly-sized, this little SUV has the quiet comfortable ride of a car rather than the ride of a small truck. 2002 is smaller than the ever-growing Highlanders of recent years, which are now way too big. This 2002 Highlander is an excellent vehicle, very reliable, safe, roomy enough for 5, comfortable in back seat as well as front. It's been a nice vehicle to transport business clients as well as great for skiing vacations, weekends in the snow, home & yard projects, along with towing & launching an 18' boat. Decent gas mileage for its weight/size at 16-26 mpg depending on Hwys or hill driving. Very easy for all ages to get in & out of "car". We love this little SUV, & believe it will drive to 300,000 mileage & beyond with continued TLC and normal regular maintenance."
