New Highlander owner in Western NC

Hi folks, I am the proud owner of a new 2017 Highlander! However, I am no stranger to Toyotas...my wife drives a 2012 Prius, dad drives a 2015 RAV4, and mom drives a 2016 Prius V. Prior to these current vehicles, we have owned a 2012 Prius V, 2006 RAV4, 2004 Corolla, 2002 Sienna, and 1998 Celica in our families!

Before the Highlander, I drove a 2007 Subaru Forester (sold) and I also have a 1988 Ford F150. I am a certified gear head, grease monkey, petrol head, and occasional shade tree mechanic. I loved my Forester, and performed almost all of the maintenance and repairs on it myself. However, we needed a bigger vehicle to fit our growing family, and the Highlander checked every box on my list; safe, powerful, AWD, seating for 8, comfortable, fun, and capable of towing. As this will be our family vehicle for at least the next 10 years, we went "all in" and got the Limited Platinum package, with factory hitch and roof crossbars. I am extremely impressed with the technology, luxury, and attention to detail Toyota has put into this vehicle, and I am excited to drive it every day!

I look forward to being an active member of this forum.
