Hugely disappointed - van was a lemon or possessed
By racecarmom on
2004 Toyota Sienna CE 8-Passenger Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 5A)
bought our 2004 Sienna new.
In the first 6 months, we had to replace the battery, the armrest fell off and the spare tire holder broke after one use. In the next three years, the panels on the front doors slid down and trapped me inside - I had crawl to the back seat to get out.
My husband duct taped the panels on and no more problem - ugly but it worked.
Then the sliding door panel's lock didn't work.
You had to take a chopstick to hold the lock lever up until just before you closed it and then pull out the chopstick and slam the door.
Other things broke with light use. Door weatherstripping falls down. Engine ran but looked like a beater van.
Would not recommend this van.
