Toyota let me down on this one
By Helene Schreiner on
2002 Toyota Sienna XLE 4dr Minivan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
Loved the vehicle which I purchased with 40,000 miles. Drives smoothly like my former Camry...love all the extra room. However, at 60,000 miles I have put in almost $3000 plus in maintenance. Had the car checked for a long 12 hr drive...brakes squeeked horribly...needed rear brake maintenance and also found a leak in trans. Hit the road next day and car bucked and shook...back to Toyotal...blew a cylinder and brakes locked up....lost my confidence in this car. This is something that should not have happened at 60,000 miles.
pulled arm muscle trying to close rear door. That shd have been an automatic door...why couldn't they think of that in 2002?
