We have broken three passanger
handles. We cannot get the vehicle to
align we tried 3 times. We have been
thru 3 sets of tires and three brake
jobs. None of the above are covered by
the extended warranty. (Never buy an
extended warranty from Toyota) All
work was done by dealer with exception
of the last brake job was done by a
shop that carries a lifetime warranty.
When I get out of the vehicle.
I dont see how they could improve a
vehicle with so many problems. I only
bought Toyota's until now.
Good-comfortable ride, reliable,
engine fairly quiet. Bad-front-end
won't aligned-constant pull to
the right; 4 sets of tires
in 120,000 miles-can't locate or fix
the problem; replacing the rear lights
rear door panel costs $65 at the
dealership-you cannot do it; paint
peeling off door handles; poorly
designed sliding door handles/buttons
fail to open or stuck open where the
door could be closed-cost $175 per
handle; dashboard lights that
highlight the AC/Heater dial are
shorting (sometimes they re-light with
a tap on the dash-most the time not).
Purchased new in 1999, now has 72000
miles. It has never been back at the
dealer since we purchased it. I never
thought I would like driving a mini-
van, but this Sienna drives like a
car. I really enjoy driving it.
Excellent gas mileage on the highway-
avg mileage in town.
Change the power door key fob button,
as we always seem to be hitting the
door open button when putting the keys
in the pocket.
I have owned many cars in the past. My
most important criteria in a car is
reliability. My Sienna is 4.5 years
old with 48k miles and I have to spend
$1300 replacing all 6 fuel injectors -
not covered by the 5 yr 60k warranty.
Toyota does not stand by its products.
I have never had to spend so much on
any car - even those I had for 10
years! The first month we had the car
the master cylinder for the ABS failed
and left us with no brakes. There are
so many vans to choose from - Don't
choose a Toyota Sienna.
Good pick up and acceleration.
Stand behind the product. Manufacture
a car that works.
Bought the Sienna in June 99 since the
Honda Odessy's were back ordered 6
months and suggested premium fuel. At
54K miles I have not had anything more
than some minor annoyances crop up,
like intermittent emergency brake
warning light on dash. Engine and
transmission have been flawless and I
get 20-22 mpg all around and 27 mpg on
extended trips. Although I change my
oil every 3-4K miles and normally use
synthetic, I was glad to see Toyota
recognize the oil sludge problem and
extend the warranty. After reading
reviews indication transmission
problems at 70-80K miles, I am a little
concerned and hope Toyota considers
extending this warranty also.
Good power for a van and great at
hauling a lot of stuff and weight.
Very Safe, my wife was hit from behind
by a large utility van. Repairs were
$4,800, but wife didn't even get a sore
A moderately expensive vehicle should
come with better tires. The original
Firestone Affinity tires ranked last of
tires recently tested by Consumer
Reports. At 52K miles, replaced them
with less costly, but much better
performing Faulken Z512s.
