Highlander XLE Revew
"The SUV was great deal. Toyota's are well know to be safe and reliable. This one is no different. There were some door dings and a few scratches but nothing unexpected from a 6 year old vehicle. Overall, I'm very satisfied and the Carfax report put my mind at ease."
Interior

4.0

The interior was in good shape. No issues with the leather seats and steering wheel. The side panel has a bubble which we'll have to address in the future
Exterior

4.0

It's in good shape for its age. There are a handful of door dings that need to be pulled out but nothing major.
Performance

5.0

The Highlander is not a high performance SUV, but in my mind safety a and reliability were the key components I was looking for because the vehicle is for my teenage son.
Family

5.0

The Highlander is a great option because it's safe, sturdy, and reliable. Technology options are good, not great. There's plenty of room inside for friends and my son's sports equipment.The only safety features missing are the lane/blind spot notification and the breaking function if someone stops abruptly in front you. Outside of that, it checks all the boxes.
Cost

5.0

I bought the Highlander from an individual so the price point was excellent. Gas mileage is decent, not great. However, the overall size/safety, price, and reliability fit perfectly with what we were searching for.

Beautiful vehicle...beware water leaking from roof drains
"This is a wonderful vehicle with excellent performance and very low road noise. The rear window is quite small and the tinted side windows took me a bit to get used to; however, the Blind Spot Mirror sensor and the Back-up Camera and sensor work very well. The roof drains can be problematic; I would check the headliner for any staining and the floor/trunk for any signs of previous moisture intrusion. If the roof drains have never been "serviced" (cleaned and checked for kinks by removing the roof rails) that should be done."
Interior

5.0

Both perforated leather front seats are heated and air cooled, as well as the second row. The heated steering wheel works very well and is a welcome feature already this fall.
Exterior

4.0

Exterior is beautiful; sensors work well to detect other close vehicles for Lane departure, Blind-spot mirror, and Back-up camera. The drainage system for the panoramic roof however has been problematic. Apparently this is an issue for many owners, we have learned by searching the web, and have taken it in to be serviced by an auto glass shop.
Performance

5.0

This vehicle has a lot of power while also driving quite smoothly and quiet without being too "soft".
Family

5.0

The back of the vehicle has it's own heat/cool settings and the second row captains chairs have their own heat/cool settings as well. The optional 3rd row seat is nice to have available. When the 3rd row is down the trunk space is quite large enough for even a Costco run.
Cost

4.0

At the used price it has held its value and, as long as the moisture issues are resolved, is worth the money.

Great car with a couple of additional options would be 5 star
"Overall it's a great SUV. With a couple of additional features, it would be perfect for me. Wish the Highlander had rain sense and remote start. Other than that, I love it! "
Interior

4.0

Enough room between the front seats to put my purse and not take up the passenger seat. Passenger seat could use a few more adjustable positions.
Exterior

5.0

Not too big, not too small. Just right
Performance

Wish it were a little heavier
Family

5.0

Lots of leg room in the front and back rows. Third row a little tight, but fine for my size family. (5)
Cost

4.0

Bought it from an individual. Don't know that I'll ever buy from a dealer again. Too many additional fees. And you potentially end up financing the sales tax.

So comfortable> > > >
"Love this vehicle not too big and not to small! Very comfortable ride and handles very well. Good pick up and go and very roomy. Only have had it one month but I think it will last me 20+ years like my last SUV, a Honda Passport. Seems to get good gas mileage as well and a lot of great features like stereo system, I phone hookup and a/c in back as well with adjustable temperatures. Great for Florida!"

"Probably would NOT buy it again. Rides like a station wagon on stilts (poor handing). Poor driver leg room. Keykess entry a joke (won't honk horn when locking/unlocking, and has a really hard to hear confirmation beep, so you can't. "
