- Looks like the Subaru, rather buy the Subaru for less money!
- Toyota run out of ideas! Fast fix is copy the Subaru which is its sister Company!
I bought the Subaru instead of the Toyota Highlander which was $7,000 less than the Highlander. Toyota is getting lazy to put their once great ideas in copying from big name carmakers that they now copy from their sister company! Where is this carmaker heading into?

- GPS, entertainment, third row
We own a 2003 Highlander and have been very happy with it despite its underpower. So we have been excited to learn that Toyota release the 08 model with 3.5L engine and a GPS. However, just looking at this one, we were so disappointed, the car does not look happy,it just like a Mule, really, an accidental cross over. So we decided to wait until Toyota realize its screw up and change the design. For now, still happy with our 03'...read morehide

- Does look like the old Hyundai Santa Fe SUV!
- Too costly, unimpressive style, short warranty.
For the price, looks and short warranty of the Highlander, I'm thinking of buying another SUV. The one with lower price, more values, longer warranty and better styling!

- Good pick up
- Too bulky, not easy to handle, like driving a blimp
Test drove this car yesterday. I waited for the '08, but was very disappointed. Much too wide. Much too high. The '07 was a winner, but not this one. What did they do. I think this is a looser.

- Updated look, great navigation system
- Cheap interior materials, toyota dealers
I must start by confessing that I did not purchase the highlander, but had intended to. I'm looking for a comfortable SUV for work and really liked the interior layout and the navigation system. The newly redisigned highlander is larger, has a more powerful engine, and it definetly improves it's appeal. Acceleration is good and it offers a comfortable, but floaty ride. My biggest complaint is many of the materials are quite cheap. The leather just looks too plain and cheap, the faux wood looks too faux, and the ceiling is covered in a cheap, fuzzy cardboard like covering. Realistically, this car is meant to carry 4 adults comfortably, as the third row is useless, and the second row stow option is very uncomfortable. The worst part is the dealership was trying to sell them for $750 over MSRP!! For that $$$ you could get an Acura MDX or a Lexus RX350. They are trying to make $7k on these things! I'd say once the hype of the new highlander fades, if you can pick one up for invoice, it would be worth the money. But currently, the dealers are drunk thinking they can sell a limited for $43k loaded. I feel sorry for the poor individual who pays that only to find that their vehicle has depreciated $15k in the first year. I think the Acadia and the Enclave are nicer to look at and feel more upscale, but reliability may be an issue, and they are slightly underpowered. I would have bought a Highlander if the dealer wasn't so arrogant. I may wait a few months until they have several sitting on the lots.............I don't see these flying out the door....read morehide
