1998 Toyota Sienna Minivan LE 3dr Minivan


Review

Sienna has been an excellent vehicle
since day one. Toyota quality is no
kidding. I have had sliding door
rattles. After some online research, I
put some grease on rubber door stopper
and fix the problem. I wish I had power
sliding door and wonder how to add one
to my van.


Best Features

Trouble free, AC is very cool. Nothing had been replaced until 2 months ago. One dashboard buld and one rear parking bulb went out 2 months ago.


Worst Features

Since I got the tranmission letter, I have noticed hiccup from 1st-2nd gear change while in "D".

Review

Driven daughter back and forth to
college from 1998 to 2002; now is
moving here furniture from place to
place as she finds jobs in the
Northeast.
More fun than a truck but has carried
all her bedroom furniture plus a
mattress several times.


Best Features

Take out bucket seats for more space.

Review

This vehicle had 28000 miles on it when
bought from a Toyota dealership. I had
to have the transmission rebuilt with
85000 miles on the vehicle at $2300.
The transmission service was done at
the recommended intervals. However, the
service was not done by a Toyota
dealership, so Toyota would not reveiw
the failure to help with the repair
cost. I bought a Toyota to avoid this
type of problem!! The vehicle has also
had constant problems with rattling
noises coming from the sliding doors.
I'm ready to try a different vehicle
manufacturer!


Best Features

Drives nice for a mini van.


Worst Features

Interior design needs help to eliminate the rattle problem. Improve driveline reliability!

Review

I bought this van with 12 miles on it,
now at 147000 I am on my second set of
brake pads and my third set of wipers
and tires. Oil changes every 5000
miles, air filter every 30000 mile,
Transmission drain & fill every 15000
miles AND THAT IS IT! I haven'y
replaced even 1 lamp or light on this
car. It has NEVER been in the shop for
problems other than recalls. What a
great van. My 2 previous CHRYSLER POS's
were money drains from day 1.


Best Features

Whats not to dislike 28+ mpg on the Highway 24+ around town. Just keeps on going!


Worst Features

NONE!
