All-new minivan from Toyota is guaranteed to set the minivan-world on end. A powerful engine, seating for seven, car-like ride, and attention to detail may spell the end of Chrysler Corporations dominance of this field.
We think that this is one of the ugliest minivans on the road.

2004 we bought this used - I knew the only major issue was the sliding door handles *might* break. Yes, they did - and we've had to replace them. We've put on 100k miles in the past 7 years and it's made tons of 24-hour roundtrip roadtrips over the past few years. Great van but we have had to take it in the shop a few times (replaced alternator, other stuff I've forgotten but no transmission/engine major stuff).

This van is simply amazing. At 180K received letter from Toyota asking if while driving you hear a humming noise, bring it in. The following week dealer installed a brand new transmission, free of charge. Now going on 350K. Changed radiator, timing belt twice, brakes and oil. Van should be good for another 200k, at least! Extremely satisfied.

Purchased new in fall of '97 and 65,000
mles later, still enjoy it. I needed
flexiblity in a vehicle, the Siena did
the trick. Good power along with good
mileage, comfortable car handling
features and unique (at the time)
interior features...the '98 Siena has
it all. A couple of negatives: right
from the "get-go" the van has had an
occasional squeak in the dash and the
right rear quarter window rattles
unless completely open. The dealership
did what they could, but after a couple
of months..weeks the squeaks in the
dash and the quarter window rattle
returned to their orignal fame.
