Honey of a Vehicle by Retired Driver on 01/19/2012. Trim: 2008 Toyota Highlander Hybrid Limited, Owned 4 years.

Pros: My vehicle insurance cost actually went down because of the safety. Solid feeling of being of safe. There are also side airbags. Great features such as temperature controls for each passenger including the 2nd row seats, separate control for the 2nd seat passengers, heat/cool vents above the backseat passenger and a 3rd row seat or fold down. The hybrid features are amazing. Silent. smooth transition between gas or the battery on the open highway. Runs on battery on cruise. A display gives feedback as to when it is charging the battery. It also uses the braking to charge the battery. Advantage of a SUV is less difficult getting in or out. It has a skid warning light if I need to slow down.
Cons: I hesitated on purchasing the black color vehicle. It is very hard to keep clean. The tires only last for 25000 miles. It is a little close getting into the 3rd row seats.
Overall review: You can't go wrong on buying a Highlander Hybrid. I think the new models will be more improved in the future.
