"Just bought a certified used 2006 Highlander Hybrid. Maybe it's "New Car Euphoria" I'm feeling, but I love everything about this SUV.
1. It's a Toyota...reliable, long lasting.
2. It's a Hybrid SUV. Best of both worlds.
3. Safety - Highly Rated.
Acceleration is phenomonal, better I've read than the non-hybrid version, and better than any other SUV I've driven. Comfortable ride, roomy interior. Electric Mode feels fantastic. No engine rev, and it feels like you're driving an electric train. Not flashy at all but quietly superior to every other SUV on the road, and just a cool car to drive. I am looking forward to at least 10 years with this vehicle. Very Satisfied."
"I've (we've) owned a ridiculous # of Toyotas, p-ups, corolla's, van, total of 12 various models and years. We currently own a 98 rav 2wd, 05
rav L 4wd,and 06 highlander limited V-6 AWD.
98 has 150K, 05 @65K, and 06 at 35K.
I don't expect to have to purchase any vehicles for a long time, only if one gets in an accident (hope not!!) and I know we would be ok and not hurt IF an accident occurred.
I have been eyeing a 04-05 MR-2 a neighbor of mine has...doesn't get much use by them.
I would buy it in a heartbeat!
All the recent bad press on Toyota...it to will
pass. I would never hesitate on a Toyota purchase...all models...bar non.
Couple comments on the Highlander...mileage could be a tad better,
and the styling is not really exciting, but the luxurious ride and interior appointments help
one forget the "just another boring" SUV
As you can see, we are TOTALLY sold on Toyota. If they made a motorcycle, I'd trade my Honda ST1300 for it (that's saying a lot because I really like my ST!!!).
I think I really need that MR-2 for bad ohio weather days that keep me off the bike!!!!"
