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.


Favorite 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.


Suggested Improvements

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.


Favorite 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!


Favorite Features

Drives nice for a mini van.


Suggested Improvements

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.


Favorite Features

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


Suggested Improvements

NONE!
