2004 Toyota Sienna LE 8-Passenger Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 5A)
Toyota has done a superb job. We have had 5 minivans. 4 Chryslers and one Pontiac Montana. We buy all of our vans with high milage with the exception of the Montana. I would take a Sienna with 190,000 miles over the others with half that. At 190,000 it is still tighter and smoother than the Montana with 50,000 miles. We have taken a number of trips with all 8 of us plus the back stuffed with luggage add a car top carrier & we still average 22.8 miles to the gallon. The best we have seen on a shorter trip was 26.7 mpg with no luggage. I just put the top rated new Michelin tires on it & it is so quiet you would almost think you were flying. I will definitely buy another Sienna.
Superb handling. Plenty of power, smooth transmission. Comfortable seats. Great heating & cooling system with front & rear controls. Lots of cup holders and storage.
We have one power sliding door. It has failed and it will cost us 1600 to fix. It is stuck closed and will not even open manually.
