Purchased new in 2002, now 113k. Overall a great buy for us. Tires a problem with wear due to frt. end weight. You will replace rotors if you do not replace pads earlier than expected. We only get 12-14k on a set of front pads just to be safe. Wife's van; she's a little speedy. Rear shoes repl @ 65k. Normal maintenance items; timing belt @ 90k, change trans fluid every 35-40k, coolant @ 70k,
plugs @ 60k. Front end parts great though must keep aligned. No problems with doors but recommend periodic greasing of all.
Engine and transmission still pull like new (knock on wood). Please report on this site engine/transmission problems and mileage occurred.
Wife likes that it drives like a car but with lots of room. Should have waited a year for the flip down seats; that would have been great! Sliding door is great also.
Better mileage would be a plus as with the 3.0 V6 we only get daily driver 17-20 mpg with loaded shore trips averaging 24-25 mpg.
I have a Sienna Symphony model and boy is it great.
It does everything right and has never had one problem.
It tows, holds cargo and people, and never has broken down.
It isn't engaging to drive but it gets the job. This car is a true man van.
Reliability, cargo capacity
Just because I buy one of your cars doesn't mean I want to sell my soul and my manhood just by driving one of your cars.
Please Put Passion In Your Cars.
A good old reliable piece of transportation. Only trouble have been with the electric windows up front-kind of spendy to fix. also the passenger doors keep sticking. Overall, at 90,000 an extremely reliable van-it's a Toyota after all.
Long distance cruising - eats up the miles. Lots of room for the kids and neighbors kids. Surprisingly good fuel economy-we avg 23 mpg on long trips.
Rear seats are a real pain to lift out-extremely heavy. Not too sure footed in icy conditions.
We bought our 2002 Toyota LE because of the reliability ratings. What a joke.Our van developed a brake squeal almost immediately after purchasing. Van pulls to the right or left at 60 mph. Engine has 66,000 miles and is sludged and needs $2000 in repairs. After researching we found out that the brakes, engine sludge and pulling are Toyota factory flaws and Toyota has numerous lawsuits pending against them. Wish we known before purchasing, we would have bought an Odyssey!
