Review

Purchased a 1998 Toyota Sienna in 1998 June of 1998. First Transmission failed at 80,000 miles. Rebuilt transmission installed under extended warranty purchased by me. Second transmission failed at 90,000. Oil leak with oil pan, valve cover occured at about 90,000. Rear brake design poor. Original rear braked interior dust cover two pieces. Cover rusted and blistered causing rear shoes to hang. Dealership claimed normal wear and refused to cover under extended warranty. High pressure steering line cracked and leaked at 105,000. Radio buttons falling off at 80,000. Passengervanity mirror fell-off at 95,000.

Best Features

Removable seconf and third row seats. Rear power windows controlled from front seat.

Worst Features

Tearablble build-quality for first year vehichle. Will never buy first year vehicle again. Better gas mileage. Should notify that van prefers premium fuel before allowing customer to purchase. Gas mileage on regular gas 87 octaine is 17 mpg and with premium, 93 octaine, 19 mpg.
