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

This model although released in June 2004 had the 2005 Sienna features, in other words, as to how it happened, only my good friend and agent knows. The handling is outstanding; in fact, it glides on the road on top speed without any difficulties. Bought this for the wife. She kept it locally for 2 years until she realized that renting a car to save her mileage had become more expensive & impossible to do after we bought our house in 05. Also, my nephew had a strange philosophy when it comes to vehicles(he had an Acura MDX) that, in his words, you purchased your vehicle to serve you. Just be religious when it comes to maintenance and your toy will serve until it stops running! With the economy crumbling in 2008, his words became self fulfilling on my end. So, the Sienna had to perform multiple functions from a family van to school transport for our boys to bringing my mom to the doctor for her appointments. She had been all around and had proven her worth and worthy of our respect. From that point forward and up to this time, it had brought us to places like Santa Fe, NM, Mt Rushmore in SD in 09, multiple visits to Grand Canyon and Las Vegas, NV to most parts of Northern CA. Problems are minimal. Just yesterday, we completed an almost 7000 mile road trip that ended in NYC/NJ. In the process we had visited 14 states and even had to excuse Grand Canyon because it had become too common. This all power and speed had brought us safely to places that hitherto existed only in our dreams and the archaic encyclopedias; check this out: Empire State Bldg in NYC, World Trade Center, Ellis Island and Statue of Liberty. Been to Staten Island too. Then National Shrine of our Lady of Lourdes in Emmitsburg, MN, Washington DC, Lincoln and Washington Memorials to the sad ambience of Gettysburg in PA. On the road and back, she had outpaced every newer vehicles and made mincemeat of those idiot truck drivers who dont understand the meaning of using only the left lane to pass and not impede speeding traffic. She was superb downhill. Uphill she struggled a little bit--but which cars did not? You watch it. Just because shes old by vehicle standards at 14 years doesnt mean that she couldnt kick butts! We had some problems too: 1. had to replace the A/C compressor and accessories including the thermal expansion valve in 15 because it failed; 2. had to remove the dash at least 4 times to fix the A/C box including the radiator core; 3. for the recent trip, the original transmission broke down but thanks to the YourMechanic website it was replaced. The other repairs were replacements of the tie rod ends and 2 ball joints and the 2 hub bearings. Over all, I have done regular DIY maintenance myself and I have become skilled at that. While over the years she had started to become sluggish on street green lights, once she gets going, then all is elemental. A great vehicle!
