"I've had my Highlander since 2005 and just love it. It's coming off a lease and I will purchase it rather than turn it in. For someone looking for a not-too-big SUV that handles well and has great style this is a great car. Only downside is gas mileage could be a little better as I usually only average about 21-23 miles per gallon."
"I bought this car because I wanted a station wagon with all wheel drive and a third row seat. This is the only car in it's class that I know of which offers the third row seating. I have had 8 people in the car (3 adults, 5 kids) and although it is intimate, it didn't feel squashed and the car worked great. When the third row seat folds flat, there is a lot of cargo space in the back. I think it is well designed. The only drawbacks I found are that it isn't as comfortable as a larger SUV and it doesn't get much better mileage than my Tahoe."
