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!


Best Features

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


Worst Features

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!


Best 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.


Worst Features

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

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


Review

Bought the van in '02 to replace a 91 Pathfinder. Has proven to be very comfortable on long trips with to small kids. Gas mileage is what you would expect for a 6 cyl. Have kept it serviced every 5000 miles at the dealer. Had initial problem with the power sliding doors not working. Right at 36000 and the rear seat will not pull out. Only taken it out 3-4 times. Dealership had to order part. Also, the passenger power window doesn't go down all the time. Overall, wished I could have afforded the Odessey, but this has been ok. Wife likes it for taking the kids around town. Don't get the optional center console; waste of space and no space.


Best Features

Dual power sliding doors


Worst Features

Extend the bumper to bumper warranty. If Hyundai can do it, Toyota should be able to and not worry if their quality is so good.

Review

AC/heating unit a little bit week take almost five minutes to cool down in the summer, and heating up in the winter time.


Best Features

Cruise control, control of the radio/audio on stirring wheel, two side rear/middle passengers doors.


Worst Features

1)Stronger AC/heating unit. 2). With rear passengers sits removed to make rear/cargo door and luggage compartment shape large enough to allows for 4x 8 building materials (sheetrock, paneling, etc.) load/unload without tear and wear upholstery.
