"I have had no trouble out of my Highlander. We are an older couple and we bought the Toyota because it was easy to get in and out of and because of reports of reliability. Smooth riding, quiet, and comfortable. When we get another car it will be another Highlander."

"THIS COULD BE A GREAT VEHICLE……BUT IT FALLS APART FASTER THAN I CAN KEEP UP-TRANNY IS SLIPPING ( DEALER SAYS NEW TRANNY NEEDED $4000)-POWER WINDOWS BPOKEN(DEALER SAYS THEY ALL DO JUST NEEDS CLIPS IN DOOR FRAME, NOT AVAILABLE MUST BUY ASSEMBLY $1000)-HEATER CONTROL BROKEN (DEALER SAYS THIS FAILS IN ALL HIGHLANDERS, PART NOT AVAILABLE MUST BUY ENTIRE ASSEMBLY $1200)-POWER DOOR LOCKS BROKEN, ALWAYS HAVE A CHECK ENGINE LIGHT ON (CURRENTLY TRACTION CONTROL) WHEEL BEARINGS NEED REPLACING-THE END OF THE STORY IS IT WILL COST MORE TO REPAIR THAN THE VEHICLE IS WORTH…..CALL ME DUMB BUT I DID THIS WHOLE LIST ABOVE WITH A 2002 SEQUOIA….. NO MORE TOYOTA'S!!!!!"

"I got my Highlander new from the dealership. It is the ONLY new car I have ever had. I got it in 2001 & have put 90k on it in 13 years. I love the fact it is reliable, it will go when I need it to & we can fit MORE into this car than I could EVER imagine & still be comfortable. It is AWESOME in the snow (we added 'Siped' tires) but I push the "ACS Snow" button & I go places that regular 4wheel drive CANNOT DO. It's something I value. I haven't had many chances to use it living in Metro/Oregon, but it has NEVER let me down. The car turns as easily as my Camry's did, GREAT turn-radius. I can park in ANY situation. The color is Electric Green MICA & get compliments about the brilliant, rich green & in the right light it is more hidden & looks like a shimmering black with a hint of green. We have spent the night in it with seats down in back, moved, traveled, done trips to every activity my daughter needed to go & more ! My daughter even learned to drive & then got her own Driver's License in this car ! It is a car I would not want to be without !"
