YearBody/PowertrainComment
20124dr SUV 261-horsepower 4.0L V6
6-speed manual 4WD, part-time w/low range
For the amount of transportation value which you receive, the car is priced below where I would expect it to be.
20034dr SUV 180-horsepower 3.3L V6
4-speed automatic RWD
Very economical to own.
20024dr SUV 170-horsepower 3.3L V6
5-speed manual 4WD, part-time w/low range
Excellent value for the features. Hard to find a real body on frame truck with a durable drivetrain for this money.

Nissan Canada is greedy. There is no reason they should charge for xterra in Canada more than in US.

Price of the Toyota Highlander: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
20094dr SUV 187-horsepower 2.7L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
We were able to get a new Highlander for much less money than a Honda Pilot and still get all the features we desired (larger than a Rav4/CRV, >20 MPG city, leather, and full compliment of air bags/antilock/traction control)
20074dr SUV 155-horsepower 2.4L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
I got it for a good price making it an easy decsision to purchase
Price of the Toyota Highlander: Cons

20114dr SUV 270-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Felt some options missing for $38K vehicle such as memory settings, more detailed tire monitoring

you pay for the reputation.
20094dr SUV 270-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic FWD
VW was offering a sizeable discount on the Routan, a similar Highlander was from 8 to 10K more
20084dr SUV 270-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic FWD
More expensive then Pathfinder for same year and higher milage vehicles.
20084dr SUV 270-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Because you had to purchase features you did not want, the vehicle was much more pricey than others with the same features. They charged a premium for basic features included with other makes of cars.
