After 5 Years
By Mark on
2004 Toyota Sienna LE 7-Passenger Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 5A)
Owned this van for exactly 5 years and just received one big repair bill. After only 42K miles needed to replace the front control arms at considerable expense. Also needed to replace the rear brakes and rotors, and the tires. When asked why they needed replacement so soon, was told the van is very heavy. Otherwise, have been very happy with this van. Very comfortable on road trips. A bit disappointed in the number of recalls; gas tank, radiator, power steering hoses, and 2 other minor items.
Excellent highway mileage. Very comfortable on long road trips. Love the tight turning circle; can do u-turns on narrow roads.
Horrible mileage in the city in winter and not much better in summer. Should have used larger brake parts and heavier duty steering components.
