2001 Toyota Sienna Minivan LE 4dr Minivan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I love this car. Mileage is about 27 miles /gal. highway. The ride is great and I love the spaciousness. I can drive long distances without tiring. The only things that I would change are some of the things that Toyota has done with the new ones - 2nd seat side windows should move, back seats should drop into the floor. I do wish that they would have put an outdoor thermometer on it.


Favorite Features

It is spacioius and very comfortable. My 91 year old 5' mother can easily get into and out it.

2001 Toyota Sienna Minivan CE 4dr Minivan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Electrical system is a problem: passenger side window does not work. Started happening during warranty period, however, dealer, could not find problem existed. Now no longer works. Computer: Problem lights keeping coming on: low air for tire, engine problem, etc. We have had them checked at the dealer and they just reset for a cost. Also, Bayridge Toyota of Brooklyn NY stated that the engine problem was from over filling the gas tank and a repair of $800. Body: This car dents very easily.


Suggested Improvements

Better cupholders

2001 Toyota Sienna Minivan LE 4dr Minivan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

We purchased an '01 brand new. I have loved it from day one. It has never given me a problem. We have done nothing to it but the normal oil changes, transmission fluid changes and brakes. Outstanding vehicle. In the market for a new one and not happy with the expensive option packages for '05. Spent all day yesterday test driving all the competition- conclusion: yes some are much cheaper but theres no comparison in looks, comfort, drive to the toyota. Back to the toyota dealership we went and made a deal. I'm getting another toyota sienna.


Favorite Features

comfort, interior, RELIABILITY!!!!!! Couldnt ask for a more reliable vehicle and I live in Vermont- road salt can destory a vehicle.


Suggested Improvements

stiffer seats! I like a seat with a lot of support.

2001 Toyota Sienna Minivan LE 4dr Minivan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Decent space for family of 6. Nice interior, comfortable seats. Exc sound sys (prem.). So-so heat in MN winter. Good AC. Gets 26 mpg carrying a full load on hwy. The only problem is that the driver's mirror has become balky. NO other problems. Best reliability of anything we've owned. Nothing rattles or squeaks. I bought it primarily for the power. I was stunned at how quick the Sienna moved when I test drove it. More understeer than I like but that's FWD for you, replacement tires helped a lot. I'm buying more Toyotas!


Favorite Features

Excellent power for a mini-van. Amazingly responsive engine. Great build quality (zero issues) and excellent reliability (one minor problem so far).


Suggested Improvements

Any vehicle could be improved. Make middle/rear seat attachments to the same plan so seating could be rearranged in more ways. Tighter turning radius would help. Economy-mode shifting would probably help city MPG (seems to like lower gears). Rear/side visibility somewhat restricted.

2001 Toyota Sienna Minivan XLE 4dr Minivan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

The Sienna has been a dependable and great family vehicle. Only problem I have had continuously is with the brake system. It seems either the front or rear brakes are CONSTANTLY squealing and I need to have them adjusted almost immediately after JUST having them adjusted. It is very frustrating. And the only response I get from Toyota is that "yes" this is a common complaint with the Sienna and then a description of how the brakes are made and why this keeps happening. Not happy about this at all. But, overall, has been a good purchase and we think it is a good value. Would like to have a bit more storage, but see Toyota now has it with the 2004/2005 models. Good job!


Favorite Features

Automatic doors. Seat warmers a plus. Bucket seats in middle a must. Leather has been durable with 3 children. And a cat (a stow-away!). Engine runs great. Has great pick up. Great traction and skid control as well.


Suggested Improvements

The automatic trunk would be a bonus. And seat warmers for back seats. Kids need heat, too!
