What Owners Say

"Very powerful, effortless handling. Hugs the road, little sway on curves. We love the electronic safety features (lane change warning with assisted steering, adaptive cruise control, blind spot warning), these were very important factor in purchasing this expensive vehicle."

"Compared to my Optima, the Highlander really growls to get up to speed when pressed. It feels underpowered. This may be an unfair comment given my Optima is smaller and has turbo but I still feel that is really struggles when punched and is emits a loud engine rev to get up to speed.."

I understand they are trying to get as much MPG as they can squeeze out but don't care for that feature and wonder what the long term effect on starter reliability it will have."

Also, after punching it & letting off the gas, the engine stays revved when you would expect the rpms to drop.

Victor G., OH (2017 Toyota Highlander)

"There seems to be an exceptionally large change in gearing between 3rd and 4th. Transmission has a very irritating tendency to lag at low speed, and shifts continuously searching for the correct gear. The transmission has been checked 4 times, but the dealer always says that the computer reports that it is healthy. Also, the engine is generating more and more noise at idle as the miles accumulate, in spite of it being meticulously maintained. Scheduled oil changes have been done by Toyota, and I have added in additional oil changes, doing the work myself."

Anonymous, WA (2017 Toyota Highlander)

"This Highlander has all of the electronic safety devises plus the new six gear transmission. These improvements save fuel without losing the quick acceleration that I had become accustomed to with my 2011 Highlander. The added features of lane departure warning and speed control distance braking make the vehicle much safer and handling easier. Toyota put many of the screen features between the tachometer and the speedometer which had made handling safer and easier because I do not have to look at the center of the dashboard to know what the speed limit is or if the navigation system wants me to turn."

"Vehicle is not as agile in town driving as I would like, but the transmission is 8-speed, so there is lots of shifting up and down. The biggest aggravation is the start-stop feature with the engine. It is borderline dangerous to have. In-town driving requires quick acceleration from a stop position, and the engine does not restart quickly enough to respond. It cannot be disengaged permanently, but it can be turned off every time the engine is started... a nuisance. Handling is very good, even with the electronic steering."

"I think that the ride isn't comfortable. It feels very stiff and sense we live on some xxxxxxx roads the bumps come through as stiff punches. The little imperfections are also annoying because it feels like there is a jitterbug controlling the car. I also think the road noise is way too pronounced, even on good roads. And the wind noise builds quickly as we get up to speed. Quite frankly with the Ride and the noise inside I want out and into my Pilot. However, I do really like the seats. THe are wide and cushy. THough on a LONG road trip we took, it got a little sore to sit in them. If I knew it was like this I would not have bought it. I think I will be pushing for longer test drives from now on."

"Hendrick Toyota of Apex sold us this vehicle at a more than fair price to begin with. It has been problem free and much more comfortable and fun to drive than we had even realized at the time of purchase. I think the car has exceed our expectations as far as value goes."

"The safety features like blind spot detection, cross traffic warning, etc. I could not get them on Jeeps without Avery expensive package purchase."

"The SUV has good space when you drop the back seats, or the third seat can carry more people. I also like the safety features."

Michael M., MA (2017 Toyota Highlander)

"This is an expensive SUV; however, using the Consumer Reports New Car Match deal, I saved a considerable amount. Therefore, the price I paid relative to what I got I'm extremely satisfied. I previously had a 2009 Toyota RAV4 4x4 limited, and the only thing I gave up was the 4x4. Everything else on the 2017 Highlander Hybrid is much much better."

James T., CO (2017 Toyota Highlander)

"Got a great deal from the dealer and the service is exordinary! Toyota covers all scheduled maintenance for the first 2 years and a very resonable maintenance package I purchased from the dealer extends that coverage for an additional 3 years and provides free car washes!"

Allen F., CA (2017 Toyota Highlander)

"Excellent quality, fit and finish and resale value"

Thomas J., WI (2017 Toyota Highlander)

"Value was OK. Was disappointed that only AWD available in KS due to Toyota putting states into regions. In OK I could find the same vehicle in 2WD but KS couldn't trade with OK because they are in a different region (so I was told) thus for dealership to trade they had to get a veh. in Kentucky. I thought the XLE trim package should include memory seats. You shouldn't have to jump up to the Limited edition for that option."

Tom S., KS (2017 Toyota Highlander)

"The Buick Enclave I previously drove had to be replaced at 80,000 miles. I hate to buy cars. I wanted a car that I could drive for 200,000 miles. That is why I bought a Toyota."
