""At 96,000 miles nothing has failed on this SUV. Regular maintenance has been done, e.g. every 5,000 mile oil changes, gas filters, etc., and it has never let me down. I have almost all receipts for work done on the car, through yearly inspections. New tires, brakes and calipers, done 2016."

"I bought this car new because I had been impressed with overall quality and function of Toyota vehicles. This vehicle has curb appeal and some luxury features such as moon roof, automatic garage door opener, leather interior, excellent sound system, sporty look (back spoiler, sporty running board, quick acceleration, ease for 5' tall short legs to enter and exit) and I loved the convenience for loading cargo using the hatchback. It was my first SUV having driven 4-door sedans (Mercury Marquis, early model Toyota Cressida, Camry, Chevys, Toyota Corolla and my husband's Chevrolet Suburbans or GM Yukons). I was dissatisfied with cup holders cheaply designed and positioned between the front seats, and had hoped for better gas mileage."

"I am a Toyota technician for the past 20+ years so I see it all. Lack of maintenance through kids abusing vehicles. This model 2003 Highlander V6 Limited, has almost no recalls and/or issues. I have 225,000 miles on mine and I have kept the maintenance up regularly. It has never left me on the side of the road or given me an ounce of trouble. Only things I have had to replace over time were the B1S1 and B2S1 (A/F oxygen sensors) and the temp control blend door servo. I haven't had to repeatedly replace them either. I would recommend this model to anyone looking for a midsize SUV with decent HP. I will say the allwheel drive models are heavier and you can feel it when driving them."

"Bought used at dealer in florida car had 113k miles and I paid $13k for it and may have found deal but I liked the car. Three 1/2 yr latter i'm putting my first money into it which is simply the car battery! It runs great,smooth ride, I LOVE all the window space to look out for other cars. Its great I can put my dogs in the back, or lots of groceries. I've even slept VERY COMFORTABLY with plenty of room in the back. It now has $126,400 miles which Kelly book says is above average. I hear the car can go 200k miles and i'm not selling until it starts costing too much $ to keep it- I LOVE IT gas mileage not so great but its a suv and its really not so bad avg 20mpg it now has 126,455 miles was 113k miles 3 1/2 yr ago"

"Just sold my beloved friend today. Getting a new one after 12 great, problem free years. Been very happy with the car, but things are starting to happen at this point, and the car is starting to show its age. I almost feel like a traitor, the car has been good to us through thick and thin. With us, it made it to 196,000 miles, and hopefully will go many more with its new owners. I only hope the new Highlander is as reliable and friendly."
