Reliable, fuel efficient, and easy to handle.
Overall, the 2009 Toyota Highlander is a great car. It did not come with all the extra features such as a sunroof or fog lights, but it was well worth the price. The Highlander is very flexible in what it can be used for. It is a great family car because it has lots of seating. The seats can fold down to allow for a large amount of storage space or to accommodate pets. It is also a good car for your daily commute. The Highlander is large enough that other drivers and especially big trucks do not try to bully you on the road, yet it is small enough that it can travel down narrow streets without much issue. Depending on the exact model that is purchased, it also has enough power to pull trailers and such given a tow kit. The Highlander is also versatile in who is able to comfortably operate it. It is good for people big and small, young and old, and for those who are just beginning to drive. Overall, I would definitely purchase a newer model if the need and opportunity should ever arise.

A dream compared to our last few vehicles
My Highlander is a green color, although most often mistaken for gray. It has a nice body to it. Sleek sides, a slightly boxier front. It has three rows, which is a must for a family our size. I can fit all of my children and their car seats comfortably with room for one (very slim) other person to ride in the second row in the middle. It could use more trunk space, but even with four children, we make grocery pickups and any type of major shopping work by sometimes taking something out to put something new in. I love that the third and second row can be folded down in the event that we need to pick up a bigger purchase like a bed or table. It is convenient for sure. We purchased this car at already over 100,000 miles but you would never know it. The engine does not give away its age by being loud and the Highlander drives smoothly. It is not a bumpy ride in it, which helps you feel secure and safe. I love the leather seats and value the ability to have heating even at the rear. It does not take long to warm this baby up all of its functions have been very efficient, and we have not needed to take it to the shop once since we purchased it. Mileage is decent for a SUV its size. One of the windows takes a little more effort to close on the driver size but it does, and is really a minor defect overall. In all honesty, this vehicle has wonderful things going for it, and I hope to drive it for many years to come!
