Hey...I am a Toyota fan, but I can tell you that the Black Avalon I had was sharp, but one of the reasons I traded was the color. Black is not only hard to keep looking great, but it also shows every little scratch and swirl mark.
It also absorbs lots of heat if you have it out alot in the sun. Black is a sharp color if you want to go to an extreme work -out to keep it clean.
Best of luck on your color!

To add to the comparisons, not much has been said here about the Highlander 08 In a recent snow Ice event, it did a beautiful job on the road. Highlander has one of the highest reviews posted, with excellent reviews about this great SUV.

Hey Lucky, What I meant was the Number of reviews by folks that own them...73 reviews currently with a 9.3 .
I hope Edmunds will review the Highlander 08 soon! It is a great SUV. I had friends with me today for the first time, and they said it was one of the best they had been in...quiet, smooth. They were very surprised, and loved the looks.
I drove a Tribeca, but found the Highlander to have more room inside, and I prefer the looks of the Highlander better. IMO the Toyotas have a better fit & finish that's why I have owned many!

Wow. The front end isn't bad, but the new Pilot is one plain basic looking CUV.
There I was looking at photos of the new Pilot, and next to it was an ad for the Enclave. The Enclave has more beauty and style in it's tail light trim than the Pilot has in the whole vehicle. But, design is subjective. For instance, I love the look of my '07 Tribeca, which was certainly panned by many.
just my $0.02.
The Buick Enclave is a remarkably beautiful vehicle. Never driven one, but they sure are puurty.

I agree with you on the looks of the Pilot. I love the looks of my Highlander 08 much better!
While the Enclave is sharp looking, they are having problems. Check out their Forum section. There are some un-happy folks with it.

Did you see the new Pilot concept at NAIAS?
You might miss the boring old design. The new one is hideous.
#767 of 800 08 Highlander vs 09 Murano vs 08 Pilot
Feb 05, 2008 (10:06 am)
I am just starting my SUV search and am interested in the 08 Highlander, 09 Murano, and 08 Pilot. I have never owned an SUV, so am not sure which would be the best option for a "first timer." I have read reviews and see that most people love the 08 Highlander. I love the look of that and the new Murano, but see that the Murano has very limited interior storage space and some major blind spots. I'm not quite sold on the Pilot, and am really just considering it because I know Honda makes great vehicles and it's relatively reasonably priced. Does anyone have any advice? Or suggestions on comparable SUV's that I should consider? I would also be interested in finding out how much people have paid for these vehicles in the NJ area. Thanks!
