1999 Toyota Sienna XLE 4dr Minivan


Review

Excellent family van - great for trips with 4-6 adults, too. Plenty of passenger room, even with our oversized friend (280 pound linebacker) front and second row.


Best Features

Power seat, power door, leather interior, sound system, V-6 performance, mechanical reliability.


Worst Features

Door handle paint flaked off at 4 years of age. Thought I'd use the cassette player - have used it once.

1999 Toyota Sienna CE 3dr Minivan


Review

At 68K engine started missing and running rough. Took van to dealership & was told it was "bad NY gas" that clogged up the fuel injectors so we needed new ones. Took van to independent garage and they showed us a Toyota TSB concerning a design problem with the injectors and they had to be replaced. These were "special" injectors fromToyota that retailed for $150 each and we needed 6.


Worst Features

Rear window wiper not large enough.bucket front seat uncomfortable.

1999 Toyota Sienna CE 3dr Minivan


Review

Flawless performer for almost 94K now. Only one minor glitch with the tire pressure warning light that the dealer could not remedy. The reminder light isn't an active warning system; I don'teven miss it. Wonderful, smooth engine & drive train. Rugged interior (grey cloth) that has worn well with soccer players, two large dogs, antiques, lawn mower, etc. Wish we had gotten the LE's alloy wheels, though.


Best Features

Engine - climate control - flexibleseating - deeply tinted glass keepstemps down and privacy high.


Worst Features

Larger wheels/tires and a little bitstiffer suspension.

1999 Toyota Sienna LE 4dr Minivan


Review

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.


Best Features

When I get out of the vehicle.


Worst Features

I dont see how they could improve a vehicle with so many problems. I only bought Toyota's until now.

1999 Toyota Sienna LE 4dr Minivan


Review

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).
