Small/Mid Size SUV

Think I have pretty much decided on a Toyota Highlander Hybrid XLE.  It's more than I ideally would like to pay, since this is an unplanned purchase.  But if I had gone with the Highlander 3 years ago I definitely wouldn't be in this situation now!

Looks like 2022 will be the year of one set of irons for me....EEEEH GADS!!   Is that even possible?

Yeah, I know I know!  Well maybe if I could get a finance deal with no payments for the first 90 days, I could sneak in a January release beforehand 😂

I looked at them but for me, they were too small in the cargo area. The full sized Bronco doesn't come out until next year.

They are out now, just have to find them

Just read a news article that Toyota is back into full production. Of course they'll probably be stuck on a ship anchored off LA.

The supply here in Maryland/DC area while certainly not what it was pre chip/shipping issues is not that bad, I have only run into one dealer that didn't have something on the lot for me to look at or drive.

Yep, this is true.  Toyota had a positive increase in  monthly allocations vs previous month in November for the first time in months and December is expected to be even higher than November. 

There are a a big Highlander assembly plant in Indiana I believe, that a lot of the vehicles in this market are coming from. I guess that could be helping the hybrid version supply.

Depends where they're made mate. Toyota has plants in the US, however, Kia has everything made in Korea coming through Tacoma.

From what I'm told, my son will be getting my MIL's 2010 Forester in 18 months when he turns 16. It's only got 38K on it. I'm happy he's getting a reliable car with AWD for his first one.

We’ve owned a Subaru Outback or Forester since 1980.  The other cars (2nd) have varied all over the place.

Posted in this thread a while back that I wanted a Model Y. My friend bought one for his wife and asked me to ceramic coat it and that means I got to drive it home. There's no way I'm not getting one now this thing is dope, and it fits a golf bag at least two ways:

Better get your order in now before the next price hike 😲.  These cars are intriguing but the reported battery life, limited range and BIG $$ to replace the batteries makes me hesitant.  I'm thinking hybrid will be amongst my next, smaller SUV.

I’ve only driven it for about 150 miles, but so far I’m loving the Hybrid.  Getting 35 MPG and Thsts mostly highway driving. My understanding is city driving will be even better.  Unfortunately I don’t do a lot of that during the week.  Mostly errands on the weekends.  But I’ll take the 35 vs the 22 I was getting before 

it still has plenty of get up snd go as well for my uses.  It doesn’t feel like I’m lacking any power so far. 

Toyota guarantees the Hybrid battery for 10 years 150,000 miles.  So that’s reassuring.

The Highlander is among those I'm considering.  Word has it they are going to offer a PHEV version, maybe in 2023?  The 10 year/150K warranty is a nice, reassuring feature.

I know someone who has an original Model S who has had 0 major maintenance since 2012. I was hesitant as well, but everyone I know with one hasn't had any issues outside of the ones that come from factory, which are mostly cosmetic (panels don't line up, paint flaws, etc.) and are fixed at delivery.

But yeah, the price hikes are crazy. Waiting to see if this bill passes for the tax credit, since it's not retroactive. Once it passes I'll place my order and start waiting, hopefully by then the price hasn't gone up so much that it negates the credit entirely, HA!

I've grown up wrenching my own cars since I worked enough in high school to buy my first used car. Self-taught with the help of friends, I guess you can say I'm sort of a "car guy" and I never thought I would ditch combustion engines, but if I can power my whole house, and charge my vehicle, for $50/mo with the help of the sun -- it seems like a no brainer. Gotta make use of that 14 hours of sunlight per day, right?

So a side note/update to this thread.

I've had my Highlander Hybrid for 8 days now, and I'm just over 1/2 tank left with 325 miles on it.     Distance to empty says 174.   We will see if that hold true.  I know typically the 2nd half of fuel gauges seem to go faster than the 1st half.

I would have had to fill up my previous Ford Edge about 20 miles ago by now.   According to the MPG meter, I've been getting anywhere from 34 all highway speeds to 37 mixed highway and city.   Seems to be about what it was advertised at.
