Been a long time Honda owner with Accords, Crv,s and a pilot in 2005. We were ready to change our 2010 Crv and cross shopped the Highlander with the Pilot, to be sure we test drove the Highlander twice with a two week interval between test drives. We then drove the Highlander and the Pilot almost back to back on the same day and my wife loved the Highlander. We found the Pilot to be large, a bit noisy on the road and very utilitarian inside, there we feature in it that we would have taken to the Highlander like the true folding flat seat to give a flat cargo area but that is about all.
We purchased a new Highlander XLE with a 7 year platinum warranty and absolutely love the vehicle. It is quiet, material quality is good and everything seems to work really well. An added bonus that our salesman did not discuss is the 3 years of service with the platinum warranty.
Anyway good day to everyone on the forum, I have been reading for a few weeks to get information on the vehicle and it has been very helpful.
Wee are looking forward to many years of trouble free driving in this lovely vehicle. And by the way it is Blizzard white pearl.

Just keep in mind that Toyota oil change interval for synthetics (which is what the Highlander comes with) is 10,000 miles. Anything less and it's on you. Having grown up (and old) with 3k mile oil changes, I go 5,000. It's an extra $90-$100/year, but it makes me feel better.

I’m in similar boat, currently drive a 2010 Pilot, came from an Accord before that, other family members drive Camry, Lexus. Planning to move to the Highlander as I’m tired of my decade old Pilot (180k miles!). Road noise on current Pilot is really starting to annoy me after the wife pointed it out few yrs ago, and after driving her Lexus for long trips recently.

Still early in the looking phase, and plan to test drive the new Pilot and Highlander by years end and maybe make a purchase by mid 2020 once inventory builds up. Looking forward to all the bells and whistles... current Pilot don’t even have Bluetooth...

Anyone feel free to chip in w any pointers as I jump ship fr Honda to Toyota... btw, I do most of my own maintenance like oil/fluid changes so anything in that dept in comparison would be good to know, but I’m already familiar w the Lexus line, so hope Highlander isn't that much different.
