1999 Toyota Sienna Minivan CE 3dr Minivan


Review

We bought our CE in 2001 with 34K miles on it. Since then we have maintained it regularly and the only problem we've had is the screw that hold the rear window in place came out. Labor was expensive because it was not easy to get at but we have not had any other problems. It now has 64K miles on it and runs strong.

1999 Toyota Sienna Minivan LE 4dr Minivan


Review

We have had problems getting the vehicle to maintain its wheel alignment. The passanger door handle has broken. And we have 75K miles and have went thru 3 sets of brakes. The dealer says it is normal wear. Other than that the vehicle has been a good vehicle.

Review

This car has a wonderful balance between functionality, convienence, and confort. The car rides very well for a van and yet provides the space and ability to haul people or cargo long distances.

1999 Toyota Sienna Minivan XLE 4dr Minivan


Review

This van is unlike toyota reliability with respect to transmission at or around 60K miles. The transmission failure around 60K miles is unaccepted when we pay a premium to own, because of toyota reliability.

1999 toyota Sienns Transmission Failure

Review

Overal 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.

Very Disappointing

Review

I bought the Sienna with high hopes but I am really disappointed with its performance. The drive is not fun at all, the brakes give problems all the time, wind and road noise is high and visibility is pretty poor.

Solid and reliable

Review

The Sienna has delivered solid performance, mileage and comfort. We've put 70,000 miles on it and nothing has ever needed repair. We have two kids that can break anything they put their minds to, but thus far the Sienna has stood up to their punishment admirably. Driving this van is more like driving a car than any other van we tested. That's the main reason we bought it. The fact that it got the highest safety rating of any passenger van in 1999 was also appealing. Complaints? The quad-seat layout we got makes getting into the third row difficult for adults. The audio system, a 6-speaker CD/AM-FM combo, isn't as punchy as I like.

Review

A smooth-riding, tightly built, versatile travel machine. Great leather seating and the Camry engine make the best value.

Owning a Toyota Sienna can really hurt!!

1999 Toyota Sienna Minivan CE 3dr Minivan


Review

We bought our Sienna with 10 miles on the odometer. The transmission went out at 78,000 miles. A couple we play tennis with had to replace their Sienna's Transmission at 72,000 miles!! The Toyota dealership wanted $4,100 to replace the transmission with a rebuilt one. OUCH! We had it rebuilt by some low-budget grease monkeys for $1600. We're now looking for a sucker to buy the van. Anyone interested????
