The features of the Sienna Limited edition 2012 is great, we love it. We didn’t compare with other van. We know the Sienna van is a great built vehicle because we owned the 2002 Sienna, and we put 250,000 miles before it went out.

Sporty Ride! — No complaints other than the tires they put on it. It is a comfortable to drive and ride in auto. Even the back seats are comfortable. Seats 8 with only the middle of the middle row being an uncomfortable seat. We kept a pillow or beach towel in the van if someone had to sit in that seat. It is removable and stows away in a cut out in the back, so it was not a "true" seat. Was great for a car seat!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: sporty to drive, decent fuel economy 22.3

Cons: tires... had to replace at 32,000 never have we gotten such a short time on a set of tires.

Still My Dream Van, Just Wish It Had A Better Bluetooth System — It has so much space! It rides well with the V6 to power it. All of the Pros features are those that I truly adore about the van and why I don't want to give it up. My biggest negative is about how they put in a crappier system for the Bluetooth (as compared to their other models that have the color touch screen). The Bluetooth likes male voices better than females. I have found it is easiest to use (for voice commands) if I do it through my iphone (by holding down the button on my phone until it dings for Siri) than to go through the controls on the steering wheel. I also get frequent feedback from people who talk to me when I am using the Bluetooth in the car that they receive a lot of muffling on their end. I checked this with the dealership and they told me everything was fine. Sometimes I just have to grab my Bluetooth headset. The other Bluetooth functions, like listening to a podcast, work just great.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: LOVE the window shades, rear view back up camera, remote power sliding doors, and the conversation mirror.  The USB, aux, and Bluetooth are also a big perk.

Cons: The Bluetooth system for the Sienna is different than on other models, like the Camry, this system is more basic and not quite as user friendly.

I Like It, But It Could Be Better — This is the 6th sienna in a row since 1999, all of them are limited. This is the best one, although Toyota worsened in some parts of the van. Parts like interior plastics, cheap look and noisy too, worse than previous model. The van is noticeably noisier now, especially the engine , it feels like its inside the car. Now limited cost a little more than it used to, and at the same time cheaper interior, no HID Xenon headlights that used to be standard on limited version, no laser cruis control, worse mpg, no 110v outlet, that used to be there, basically less for more money. But still to me it's a best minivan out there so far. I love the engine power, good steering (if you have 18" wheels). And most important is that unbeatable Toyota quality. 2 of the 6 siennas that we owned, had 160.000ml one and 186.000 the other one. I did nothing except for regular maintenance, timing belt change and rear shocks, plus rotors of course, can't beat that.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros: Very very spacy, extra powerfull engine.

Cons: Cheap ang ugly enterior materials , worst navigation I have ever had, extra bad resolution, it's even worse than the previous model Sienna, JBL sound could've been better, gas mileage could've been better as well, noisy engine, low clearance, noisy rear seats.

Love The Space And Great For Children. — I enjoy the car and like the looks of it. My wife takes this car to work. It is very accessible for front and bak. It has all the bells and whistles like sunroof, DVD, auto doors open and closing. A great family minivan. The fuel economy is not as good as our older van.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: great for the kids and vacation travel

Cons: engine is louder than our older sienna.

Another Great Toyota — You have to drive this LUXURY Van ! Very comfortable and spacious and a drive like only Lexus can offer. Loaded with features. My kids love watching the 16 inch dvd. But they are not old enough to use the split feature and wireless headphones yet. But the bluetooth integration works for us. I stream Youtube videos straight to the DVD player. Power lift gate is quite handy. Wish it had BMW style opening of the trunk. Never used lounge seating in second row since i have car seats there. Third row seating is easy to open and close.Still there is a ton of space after. Replaced my Tahoe with this van and now i feel i can fit the tahoe in it i mean the by the cargo space.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Smooth Lexus ride. Clear and distinct controls. Peppy engine. Most powerful among vans i test drove. Keyless entry works great since i have set in the car seat and keys in my pocket but just touching the door handle to open ,releases the lock.

Cons: I wish it had sport mode to stiffen the suspension during rush hour.
