Pros

Toyota quality, enough room in second row seats for rear-facing carseat.  Fold-down rear seat is very nice.  The DVD in the back is a life-saver if you have kids but ours won't show the video if you shut off the van in the middle of a dvd unless you know the trick, read my review to learn the trick to getting the video to come back up without having to eject the dvd and start all over.

Cons

Gas mileage is no better than 20 mpg average.

Reliable Family Vehicle. — We like the looks, the XLE package is nice if you have kids, the middle seats are a bit difficult to get in and out. If you shut off the van in the middle of playing a DVD the video on the screen doesn't come back on when you turn the van back on (but the audio does). I figured out how to get the video to come back up without having to eject and start the DVD all over again--search for Sienna on my blog listed at the end of this paragraph. I had the sliding side door cables break and that was $355 for the part alone but that's the only major repair we've had in 2 years now on this used van. The 2004 is wider and longer than the 2003 and it makes a HUGE difference in space. I wrote up how to repair the sliding door cables and have posted it on my blog at johnfixesstuff.blogspot.com

Pros

I love the XLE Limited Package with the Leather Seats and ALL the bells and whistles that come on this car.  The Toyota Sienna XLE beat out the Honda Odyssey in 2004 in all the Ratings with Consumer Reports including the Safety Ratings.  I bought this van to keep myself and my 3 children safe and it has done just that.  I am very pleased with the overall performance of this car.  It can "kick it in" when it needs to and chill out on cruise control.  Very comfortable to drive for long periods of time!  

Cons

City mpg 19 - Hwy mpg 28

Super Safe Car That's Filled With Luxury! — This is a Great Looking van with ALL the bells and whistles! Very comfortable to ride and drive. I like the captain leather seats and the warmers sure are nice in the winter months. I drove our van to Chicago a couple of times (14hrs), to the mountains (3hrs), the beach (4hrs), and to Disney (15hrs) and never did I get tired of driving. Each of those trips I had my 3 children with me and no other driver - we had a blast! The kids had lots of room in the back to chill out and watch movies the whole time. We have 2 real nice head phones that come in handy when the driver doesn't want to listen to the movie. The kids wear the headphones and I listen to my CDs or the Radio. It's all good! Everyone's happy in this fabulous and SAFE Toyota Sienna XLE Limited!

Power, Style, Comfort — This car goes anywhere at any time. It's comfortable. The AWD model handles super! It may look like a "soccer mom's car" but this thing can accelerate when you need to. It feels like luxury. Gas mileage's good. Great buy!

All Of The Amenities And All Options Anyone Could Ever Want Plus So Much Room. — My wife loves it. Kids love it. I don't mind driving it. It handles like a car and has a nice tight turning radius and sips gas. Has 2 screens for DVD's, great centre stack layout. Got the side power sliding door defects fixed and covered by Toyota Canada. Easy and cheap to maintain.

Drives Like A Dream — The car is great with all the bells and whistles. Doesnt have nav, but it had a dvd player. Drives great with the defender michilen tires. The handling is awsesome and I like the sunroof option. Very proud owner of this ride.

Comfortable, Quiet, Meets All My Needs — Only owned it two months but love the ride and the quiet. It replaces the need for two previous cars. The side doors are very useful for exiting in tight places. I can make a large bed in the back and my dog approves. I now have one well built car that I use for all my transportation needs including hauling stuff

Pros

Great family car.  Lots of space for kids and dog!  Makes traveling easy with the DVD entertainment system.  Drives smooth and has an awesome turning radius.  

Cons

We had to replace the Air Conditioning at about 120,000 miles.  We have also had problems with the O2 sensor, it will probably need to be replaced soon as well.

Great Car — I like the look a feel of this car. It was comfortable and the kids seemed comfortable on long trips. There haven't been any concerns with the vehicle other than normal maintenance issues. We have driven it a lot. It has 142,300 miles on it so replacing the air conditioning and O2 sensor seem reasonable. Overall a very good car and safe too.

Best Travel Car Ive Owned. — Great vehicle for travel for bigger families. Had problems with rattling doors and almost considered a lemon cause no dealer could fix it. Finally had a specialist fix it but what a hassle. Over a 100k miles on it and still love it.

Pros

there isn't anything I don't love about my Sienna.  I only hope that in the future I can get another one.

Cons

I would love a DVD system and moon-roof but that's NO reflection on the car.  Can't find the Con's.  Would be honest about it if I thought there were some.  I've owned Dodge's, Nissan's, Honda's and Toyota's. The Honda and Toyota brands stand out -simple as that.

The Full Package — There isn't much I don't love about my Sienna. I'm only selling it because I need the money. It's one of the best cars I've ever owned. Super safe, which is VERY important to me, so comfortable to ride in (doesn't feel trucky), super quiet, gobs of room, love the third row and that you can take out all the seats and make it a cargo van if you'd like. I've kept up with the maintenance and so I think that's why the car will last and last. It's such a great car.

People Mover — It's a decent family van. It holds kids, junk and gets us there reasonably. Mileage is around 21 in mixed driving. We do seem to sideswipe things with amazing regularity, but that's not really the fault of the car. Isn't this 40 words yet?

Perfect Family Car By spoto7

Love the power doors, and the eighth seat. Luggage rack is a plus, as we found the trunk to be slightly cramped. The split third row seat, that fold down and store out of the way are a plus as well. Read More
