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


The rear brakes squeal so bad that the van announces its arrival each time you stop. Toyota has no fix. They've replaced the drums, pad and brake cylinders to no avail. The recessed windshield causes the wiper on the drivers side to compact snow and sleet on the the windshield up against the windshield frame instead of removing it. There is a small 17" wiper on the passenger side that wraps around the corner of the windshield is so small that it will not flatten out in the cold weather leaving the passenger side uncleaned and a blocked view. The seats are overly firm even for leather. Access to the third seat is difficult.

Best Features

Dual sliding doors, folding foward third row seats.

Worst Features

Power liftgate is needed. The size is too small for families with teenagers. The design does not lend itself to driving in sleet and snow, because of the recessed windshield and small passenger wiper. Improve the rear seat access, by making fold forward second row seats.
