"It is good but not exceptional. It does ride like a car because its on a Camry frame. We got the V6 and it does have power but it does not come even close to the mileage ratings. I get 19 on hwy to and from work. The seats are very small for a larger person. The ride is smooth. the transmission has strange gearing at low speed. No maint problems at all other than door misaligned when new. Overall i would say it was overpriced. I have sat in other SUVs that have more comfortable seats. Im an not sure i would recommend strongly. We also had a 4 cyl 02 Highlander and we actually liked that better. It was not as plush but more user friendly and just as reliable. The V6 sounds sexy but it eats gas big time.
