I bought my van (CE) used with 108,000 miles on it. The ride is smooth and the handling is very car-like. I took it to my mechanic who said the van is in great shape for a 9-year-old. He suggested I get a new timing belt, a tune-up and a coolant flush, and I'll probably get another 100k out of it! Great purchase!
Bought my 2003 Sienna used from dealer, was really excited since I owned a Camry before and loved the quality, first year engine light came on had to change something in emission system, cost me over $400, year later engine light came on again this time rear airfuel ratio sensor, down stream oxygen sensor and lower catalytic converter $1197.62, I bought this mini van because I trusted the toyota brand, total disappointment, next time Honda.
Since I purcahesed this Toyota I have been taking this van to the dealership for repairs every 2-3 months. Check engine lights, O2 sensors are some of the more expensive repairs. I regret purchasing this van.
This is the second Sienna I have owned,
the first being a 2000 model. I
absolutely love it! It is comfortable,
easily holds 7 people and rear cargo,
is pretty economical on gas, and WOW
does it go! I love the way it drives
like a car. The only think I really
don't like is there is a serious blind
spot on the right rear side, but I have
learned to compensate for it. Also wish
the paint was more durable. I travel
in my business and absolutely cannot
afford to have my car in the shop. I
have owned a Dodge Caravan (loved it
but went thru 2 transmissions after
relatively few miles) and Ford
Windstar, again transmissions and it
was a lumbering gashog! Not a mi
Comfort, driving ease, lots of
cupholders, great seats, sliding doors
easy to operate.
Correct right-side blind spot.
Deflector for underbody dirt/dust that
deposits on rear of vehicle. Want to
control electric windows myself-can't
just crack the window without it going
all the way down-very frustrating! Need
larger pockets for storing items
between front bucket seats
