Re: previous Toyotas. I traded in an 07 Highlander on the 2010. It had cloth seats and they never gave me any discomfort in the three years I owned the car. I still own a 2000 Avalon which is very comfortable. I mentioned the uncomfortable seat to the Sales Manager and the best he could come up with is, "If you've got an issue, get a tissue". Joking of course, but he might have been more helpful. I will check with the service dept but I'm generally against seat cushions because they are usually a big pain when getting in and out of the car. I did check with the accessories store but they have no cushions custom made for the Highlander. :

Seats of all kinds and flavors can be purchased on Ebay. Lot less expensive than trading cars to get more comfortable or memory seats.
#153 of 172 Re: 2010 Toyota Highlander transferring contacts from iPhone? [johnlindy1]
Jul 10, 2010 (4:47 pm)
Unfortunately, it won't support sending contacts.
It really pissed me off, because the salesperson had a iPhone and was able to use her older phone to upload her contacts, but after I bought the vehicle, I tried to do it and was greeting by that inane "send your contacts" screen too. When I asked their techs what the issue was, they sent me to this page:
Note it says that you can't sync contacts on a 3GS - not supported.
Worthless feature - can't use the voice recognition if the contacts aren't in the system, and I ain't rekeying my 300+ contacts.
When I complained to the tech about it, he said, "Toyota didn't build that part, so we're stuck with what they support."

I had my Toyota hood protector painted blizzard white. I noticed how far away it sits from the hood. I had it in my Highlander for a few weeks and did not like how it looked. Did some net surfing and found the Stampede hood protector chrome. It fits better than the Toyota hood protector. Fits snugly to the hood and also looks great!
I highly recommend it.
#155 of 172 2011 HL with 3.5 and 6 speed trans?
Aug 02, 2010 (10:54 pm)
having had a couple of seinnas and a couple of tundras, i tell people i am a toyota man. when it was time to move from a mini van to an SUV, i went looking at the highlander. i noticed that the 2011 seinna came out in feb 2010 with a 3.5 engine and a 6 speed. highlander uses the same power train and i assume that will happen on the 2011 HL. i could not wait so i found a SUV that was $3000 less, gets 26mpg instead of HL 24mpg, a third seat that two adults can sit in, and a 5 yr 60,000 mi 10 yr 100,000mile warrenty instead of the HL 3 yr 36,000mile. I BOUGHT A 2011 KIA SORENTO. toyota needs to keep up or lose out.

"toyota needs to keep up or lose out."
You really like it better than the Highlander? I didn't, the test drive didn't do a thing for me. I am completely enjoying the 2010 Highlander Limited I bought in January. It certainly was a hefty check to write though. I'm starting to sound like my grandparents who were all born in the 1890s... "It cost how much?" It's not like you can buy a new '65 VW bug for $1600 anymore.

The following is the link to their website: www.stampedeproducts.com/dealers. Here you can check to see if you have a dealer nearby. Its easy to install.
I bought my Highlander Limited on June 15, 2010. It's the first time I've had leather interior. The seats are very comfortable. It's really good to drive as a daily driver.
