    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?

    Pros: Moves people

    Cons: Too darn big

    Sienna — This car is a family's best friend. It can haul things, up to a full size refrigerator! But it also moves people in the best possible manner, with comfort and quiet. It's fully reliable, gives you peace of mind, holds value like crazy, because everyone wants it!

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: RELIABILITY, COMFORT, VALUE

    Cons: CAN'T THINK OF ANY

    A Van Named Sue — The Toyota Sienna is a wonderfully versatile vehicle saddled with the unfortunate label of being called a mini-van. Awful name that should be replaced with something more accurately descriptive like Sport Van or, like the old days, Quadra Van. Because we live in the Sierra, an AWD vehicle makes a huge difference in safety, peace of mind and mobility. Go anywhere, anytime, with just about anything you want to carry. The Sienna is well suited to this duty and does it in style. Although it appears a bit ungainly due to the 17 inch wheels carrying a lot of body and glass, the beauty of the Sienna is that its form follows function. Unlike SUVs with their high blocky hoods, the Sienna's aerodynamic shape helps it achieve pretty decent mileage for a vehicle of this size. And the sliding doors deserve more respect for their practicality and convenience versus SUV's swing doors that are barely functional in today's tight parking spaces. Outside of this DNA common to vans, Toyota has evolved the Sienna into a comfortable place to spend time driving around town or on long road trips. It is quiet, the ride is passenger car like and the interior fit and finish is of high enough quality that it feels like you're driving a vehicle in a different class. Many thoughtful touches are designed into the van to promote suitability for many different life styles. This is evident in the 60/40 split third seat that folds flat into the floor, the adjustable/removable captains chairs in the second row and the myriad of bins and storage spaces. Somebody in Toyota's marketing and design group must have conducted a survey with a thirsty demographic, because cup holders abound in the Sienna. I counted 16 and they are as entertaining to find as Waldo. Overall, the Toyota Sienna equipped with AWD has enough power, handling ability, maneuverability, flexibility, and creature comforts to earn more respect than it gets. It is truly the original Sport Utility Vehicle and one of these days, after the impractical eats into the cachet of pretender SUVs, manufacturers might want to consider the next evolution of a Sienna that is more performance oriented, stylish, and named appropriately.

    Pros: A solid family vehicle for use everyday in any condition.  Over the time we owned the car, the AWD was invaluable during winter months and it didn't cost extra in terms of maintenance.  For a vehicle of this size it got decent gas mileage of over 21 miles per gallon.  The interior was nicely finished and the materials held up through the years.  The Sienna was a large vehicle, but it handled like a car.  It was maneuverable with a tight turning radius and on road trips it felt settled, quiet and comfortable.  The versatility of a van is unsurpassed whether hauling cargo, sports equipment, people or anything you can think of.  The Sienna was versatile with the fold into the floor rear seats and the removable middle row of captain's chairs.  It had adequate power for passing on the highway and for moving along with and ahead of traffic.  One thing I noticed is that after years of ownership, the paint still looked as good as a new car's.  It wasn't prone to scratches, chips or fading.  More cup holders per square foot than any other vehicle on the road.

    Cons: The brakes and tires were a bit under spec'd considering the size and weight of the vehicle.  Premature tire wear was a chronic problem regardless of the brand or quality of the tire.  The outside shoulders would always wear down first due to being a bit top heavy.  Living in harsh mountain conditions exposes weaknesses that might not appear in other places.  For example, brake rotors would often warp and both the manual and power sliding door might freeze shut in certain cold weather conditions. This Sienna had run flat tires and no spare.  It needs a spare tire.  The middle seats are a pain to re-align and heavy to remove from the vehicle.  More cup holders per square foot than any other vehicle on the road.

    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.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Great on gas, handy power sliding doors and lift gate, awesome sound system, beautiful leather interior,

    Cons: A Large vehicle, much bigger than my Explorer! Takes up too much room in my garage next to my M5.

    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!

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    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
