Vehicle1999 Toyota Sienna XLE 4dr Minivan
ReviewOveral we have bee happy with the XLE. With regular maintenance, it has given us much fewer problems than our previous Plymouth Voyager. However at 72,000 miles the transmission is going faulty. I have heard from a Canadian toyota dealer that the transmission has been an issue with the Sienna. One owner said that their dealer routinely changes the transmission fluid at 30,000 mile intervals. Toyota recommends 45,000. However, after searches on the internet it seems that engine failure due to oil sludge has been more of a common problem than the transmission. Personally, I don't think thats right for a $30,000. car that has been regularly maintained.
Best FeaturesThe way seats fold up and come out.
Worst FeaturesThe center console has already been improved looking at the newer models. I think Toyota should stand behind their cars more.
