    An Already Great Family Car They've Improved From The Previous Model, Lots Of Space — Previously we owned a 2003 Sienna and this one-year upgrade (and new model) have made a big difference. The XLE package with DVD is very nice with kids but the controls are all in the back so that is difficult when the parents are sitting in front. We eventually pretty much learned how to reach back and feel the buttons. This XLE model has storage everywhere, we don't really use it all. There's even storage under the armrests on the driver and front passenger doors. The wider wheelbase and the slightly longer 2004 model makes a big difference and the fold into the floor back row seats is very nice when you fold them down and it's nice when they are up because you have the lower floor behind the back seat to store more stuff. The engine is fine for power and has plenty of get-up to pass on the interstate but the we really don't ever average much more than 25 mpg, usually less than 19 in the city. I had to replace both sliding door cable assemblies, which is a pain, (but not worth the $1,400 the dealer will charge you) and I actually wrote up a tutorial on my website on how to do the repair. I had to replace the radiator last year but other than that it's been a good van. Make sure to replace your shocks and struts or you'll ruin your tires!

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: The 2004 is a big improvement over the 2003 and previous model in that it is wider and longer, slightly, which makes a big difference.  The back row seat folds down into the floor, which is very nice, the longer van allows you to put rear facing car seats in the second row without needing to put the front passenger seat all the way forward, and the 2004-2010 Sienna has so many storage compartments (13 cup holders)--very nice.

    Cons: The gas mileage is fine but not great, the second-row captains chairs are always difficult to remove, the power sliding door cables break after about 10 years on these vans and are an expensive repair (if you don't fix it yourself like me, check out my website to see how you can diy too), you must remove the bumper to replace the radiator (I did that too myself and wrote about it on my website).

    My Favorite Af All Cars I Have Been Driving - Toyota Sienna! — I like everything so far. 3.3L V6 seams to be economical, however computer shows usually 22-25miles/ Gallon. I tested Honda Odyssey and that car did 28miles/gallon on highway. However Honda does not have so nice interior like Sienna.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Very comfortable car with lot of cargo space. Luxury edition XLE with all power.

    Cons: I did not find any.

    Best All Around Car I Have Ever Owned. — I like the comfort, power, reliability, utility and looks. So far, 106,000 miles and absolutely no mechanical problems at all. A very durable, well built car that handles extremely well on the open road and in the mountains. Even some moderate off roading. Plenty of room for passengers and hauling stuff, even large appliances, lumber, etc.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Safe, reliable, low maintenance, comfortable, plenty of room for carrying stuff, seats from two to 7.  Gas milage is good for its size and weight. Good power for freeway, hills and towing.

    Cons: None.

    Comfortable, Reliable Mini-van — There isn't a thing I disliked about this car. It has a large amount of space in the interior for up to seven passengers, including the driver. The car rides smoothly and comfortably. This model Toyota was not expensive to maintain, which makes it an economical family vehicle.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Drives well, fits seven passengers, two back rows can fold down for x-tra cargo space.

    Cons: I didn't have any problems with this van.

    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: passenger climate control.  lots of little storage holders throughout, can haul a 4 x 8 plywood or seven passengers in comfort, passenger DVD built in

    Cons: only getting around 19 mpg

    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.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    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.

    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.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Comfortable roomy car great for travel with big family.

    Cons: Noisy doors and body integrity.

    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.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    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.
