- configuration flexibilty, smooth ride, comfortable seats-especially compared to Honda
- huge rear blind spots, oil change procedure a cruel joke, rear wiper useless
Have 5k miles on the Highlander Sport after about 6 months. Wanted to downscale from our Suburban. Highlander has great room and flexibility for passengers and/or cargo. As good a ride as Suburban, better milage (not saying much). Great forward looking road visibility, but unforgivable blind spots looking backward or toward corners to change lanes. Most of our milage is 'local' driving, not great per gallon but as advertised. 17 gallon gas tank annoyingly small, same as my Hyundai subcompact sedan.
Upgraded to seat heaters, they work well. I find dash board fan, A/C controls awkward.
Needed extra keys (six drivers in our house), $175/key--that's abuse.
While no concerns about basic vehicle, I regret having paid top dollar for Toyota name, only to be disappointed by basic design compromies and outrageous dealer service charges.
