  • Nicely improved from previous model - 2015 Toyota Highlander
    By -

    I just traded in my 2013 limited for a 2015 limited. Nice re-design Toyota! The drive is substantially better with a tighter turning radius, much less body roll when cornering and traction control along with a new 6 speed automatic transmission. The new styling also improved. The outside is much more stylish. The interior space has improved with more rear space for storage when the third row is in use. Seating improved offering more support along with ventilated front seats. Toyota has added 'one touch' windows to four instead of just the driver. Memory driver seats make me comfortable knowing I can get my exact setting after my wife drives the car.

    We got the 2015 Toyota Highlander Limited Platinum All-Wheel Drive. Of the 14 vehicles I've owned in my lifetime, this is the first one that we bought brand new, 0 miles. And we love it. There's a reason why the Toyota brand (despite the recalls from 2 years ago) keeps its image positively high.

  • The seats need tweaking. - 2015 Toyota Highlander
    By -

    We bought a 2015 and for the most part my husband and I really like it. It handles great and is easy to park. The interior is very nice looking and I like the shelf for cell phones and iPods. The issue we have is that while the driver's seat is very comfortable because it has so many adjustments the front passenger seat bothers both of our backs on long drives. It is fine for short trips. My husband is just under 6' and I am 5'5". Even if we would have purchased the 4 way power passenger seat it still wouldn't support the lower back. My advice is if you make frequent trips over an hour long you may want to look elsewhere for your next vehicle.

  • 5ft 3 in - 2015 Toyota Highlander
    By -

    I am 5ft 3 in tall, this car is way to big for me. I feel like a mini kid, the seats are very large, controls are too far away, the seat will not go high enough for me. the *biggest* problem is I need the seat forward and then to look out the front side windows, the side mirrors are very large and take up some viewing space..... making it very difficult to see if someone is about to cross in front of the car. I have the 2105 Limited. test drive this car in a lot of different areas/roads, check all forward blind spots.... no problem with rear or back side blind spots because it has the blind spot indicator good luck

  • Great Value, Great Vehicle - 2015 Toyota Highlander
    By -

    Great for a family of 4. The vehicle has plenty of technology and safety features. It is quite to drive and gets the 18/20/24 EPA's MPG estimates as advertised, at least from my experience. The vehicle drives well and is extremely comfortable. My only complaint is the voice recognition software on the Entune system - it is horrible. Toyota really needs to focus on this issue for their 2016 model, and hopefully provide some software updates for the 14/15 year models. At this price point, the system performance is unacceptable.

  • Very happy with this purchase! - 2015 Toyota Highlander
    By -

    So glad I jumped into a Highlander instead of the Explorer or waiting for the 2016 Pilot. Versus the Explorer, it simply came down to reliability. I mean, how many Toyotas do you see broken down on the side of the road versus the Fords? And after just seeing the 2016 Pilot pictures, it solidified my feelings. I get many compliments on how much it looks like a Lexus and it is truly a joy to drive. Not too bulky in city driving/parking either. Having 2 kids (ages 9 and 6) there's plenty of room to spread out for them with the 3rd row. If i had to pick an issue, it bothers me that Toyota charges extra for Blizzard White. All considered, you can't go wrong with a 2015 Highlander.
