Pros

Low maintenance, reasonably good handling with enough power.

Cons

Nothing compared to German makes.

Very Practical And Comfortable! — This 2006 model comes with a 226 HP engine. A year later, Toyota put forward a newer engine with 260 HP, which should work better, because the van is over 2 tons, and the 226 HP engine has to work quite hard when accelerating. Handling is just about average, but is surprisingly well for a tall and big vehicle. Very roomy inside with enough space for 7 adults and some luggage.

Great Multi Use Vehicle — I like everything about this car. I have used it to haul full loads across country several times; used it to haul 7 passengers in comfort; low maintenance; looks nice to this day; just can't depart with it - so useful and economical.

Good Overall Van — Needs attention to electrical problems with door locks. Seemed to be going out way too early in life cycle of the vehicle, especially considering Toyota's supposed engineering reputation. Also, now making a strange sound in the console area. Sounds like a fan blade is hitting something inside. Would re-consider buying a Honda next time.

This Family Truckster Rocks. — Trouble free. Virtually maintenance free. Roomy. Versatile. 10.5" DVD screen is clutch. Electric lift gate and sliding doors are awesome. Road manners are exceptional. Walk-through access to third row seats also key. It is also a great cargo carrier when you need it.

My Favorite Vehicle Beside The Toyota Solara — I love my minivan! With three kids its a necessary part of life. Performance-Its a van, it doesnt drive like a car but handles better than my hubbys truck. Never had any mechanical problems with it other than normal wear and tear. Gas mileage is just a little worse than a car but worth it for the room.

Pros

Comfortable, smooth ride. Power sliding doors and trunk make travel easy.

Cons

Problem with cables on sliding doors. Got the  runaround on replacing them, but eventually Toyota took care of the issue. Luckily, the extended warranty for the problem still covered it, but if not...I might be buying a Honda

Great Transport. — Can haul a lot and has a very smooth ride. Power doors make entry and egress easy, The ride of my 2006 Sienna with over 100k miles was noticeably smoother than a rental 2014 Chrysler van with 4700 miles that I recently drove.

So Far So Good — I just bought this van but seems to drive well and have no problems as of yet. Bought because of Toyota's reputation with safety and quality. I also own a 2001 Honda Odessy and wanted something different for my wife to drive as it was beginning to show its age.

Good All Around Minivan — This minivan has been good to me. Just did only factory service tires and brakes. I am getting about 24 mpg. I use this vehicle as my company car and am able to haul most of my tools and supplies in it and still get good gas milage

Cons

High brake pad failure, poor gas mileage, and cumbersome to drive.

Brake Pad Failure. — We we should start with the brake pads, and rotors failing between 9000 to 15000 miles. We have replaced them 3 times, and the dealer didn't warranty the problem. We were not impressed with Toyota's service. Secondly we average 16 miles per gallon with having to refuel every 270 miles. From there we have the handling problem. The car is cumbersome and is difficult to manuever. We purchased this vehicle because we needed the room and assumed buying a Toyota would be a good investment. I was mistaken, but the good news is that I don't have to buy another Toyota. Read other reviews on the brake pad problem from other consumers, and draw your own conclusion. Personal note even their new Sienna's have the same problem with undersized brake pads.

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
