Consider buying LE Plus AWD...especially if there's a chance of moving to snow country.

The Highlander is big, it has three rows of seats, however it does not feel like a large car when you are driving. The size does make it comfortable for adults, the 2nd row seats have plenty of room even for larger/taller people. I really enjoy the "shelf" located slightly below the dashboard. It makes a great place to put your phone, glasses, laundry ticket, etc, you get the picture. It also has a large center console for bigger items. The onboard tech is OK, the Toyota Entune system has a couple of OK features including notification of txt's and emails - although you cannot read them while driving but you can send a standardized response. You also have apps for Open Table, sports, stocks, movie tickets and a few others. The stereo, although listed as a premium system is not very powerful and the tone/quality is fair at best. The NAV is OK to use, the voice activation commands work best for making bluetooth phone calls but using it to NAV or perform other functions is mediocre. The motor sounds fine at most speeds but I do hear a "whine" or higher pitched tone from time to time that I do not care for. Also, the Homelink function is difficult to program. I have succeeded in getting button 1 programmed but the other buttons are not working. (I have not contacted Toyota yet on this issue) The pros are the nice size, overall styling and functionality, the cons are a couple of extra noises, avg stereo and mediocre grade leather on the seats. My net opinion, I would buy this car again and would recommend it to you!

This is my second Highlander, and I am still keeping my 2003 Highlander. After 13 years from the old model, I am confident that my new 2016 Highlander is the 2nd Best SUV if not the 1st. The legacy of a Highlander performance has been outstanding, and all the bells & whistles of the new models for an excellent ride and excitement to both the young ones and/or the "young-once" are value added without costing you an arm and a leg.

Toyota refuses to acknowledge that there is a problem with intermittent buzzing sound. I complained to two dealerships but Toyota said it is as designed. COME ON!!!!
