Bought my Sienna brand new in 2001. A very expensive mistake. Paid thousands more for "legendary" reliability only to find it contains many biodegradeable parts. Oxygen sensors, lower control arms, pads, rotors, drums, even dash lights all needed replacement or servicing within 6 weeks of warranty ending (with only 25000 miles on the vehicle). No help from Toyota... even wanted $75 for a dashboard light bulb! Was told there was no fix for brake noise in Sienna's, "they just do that". Nearly $2000 in repairs to fix everything to try to sell and then the dealer (inspecting the Sienna prior to my selling) told a prospective buyer the brakes squeal because they were aftermarket! Now that's rich!
Very smooth driveability. More carlike than any other minivan except for maybe Honda. Highest head rest adjustability for tall driver safety. (main reason we didn't buy Honda in the first place!)
1.Having seats with LATCH but no tether anchors and then other seats with tehter anchors but no LATCH makes no sense! 2.A little compassion from Toyota for low mileage "just out of warranty" vehicles would go a long way towards customer retention. 3. Seats are way too soft 4.Huge turning circle!
