2005 Toyota Sienna Minivan LE 7-Passenger Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Review

This is our first endeavour into the minivan world. As BMW and Subaru drivers, this was a new experience for us. Suprisingly, we love to drive it! It drives like the car and there are many more comfort features than in the BMW. During our first week, we put it through the paces with a 300 mile trip to our vacation. MPG was awesome at 26 MPG. Navigating through the cabin to take care of our son was a breeze. The seats fold down/up so quickly, it is extremely useful. And the ride, no matter where you are sitting is extremely comfortable. We made the right decision with this vehicle.


Best Features

Drives like a car, 14+ cup holders, flip-up table, auto-door, lie flat seats, and backseat mirror, remote opening 3rd row windows, 1/2 open 2nd row windows.


Worst Features

Make opening and closing trunk door easier with a pull-handle (very heavy trunk), flip up table for back seat, be able to lock door when sliding door is open or process of closing.

2005 Toyota Sienna Minivan LE 7-Passenger AWD 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I had a 2000 Nissan Quest before purchasing the Sienna and this van handles the road like a luxury car. I had 2 children and 5 adults in my van and it ride was smooth and roomy, best buy for the money.


Best Features

I like all the features of this van from the automatic sliding doof to the quiet ride. I also like its fold down rear seats.


Worst Features

The only suggestion I have is they should have a warning alarm if you leave the headlights on.

2005 Toyota Sienna Minivan LE 7-Passenger Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Review

3 months and 7000 miles have passed and this van has impressed me. On a family trip from NY to FL with 5 people, 400 lbs of luggage and driving 70-80 mph we averaged 25 mpg! It was like flying. Very quiet and comfortable. Turns and parks like a sedan. At 230 hp this van chews-up onramps like nothing I've driven in 25 years. It is the Lexus of mini-vans. Hey, they're not just for soccer moms anymore!


Best Features

Disappearing 3rd row seats. Lots of room. Interior lights and convenience features. Very quiet. Great value.


Worst Features

Make climate control standard on LE model.

2005 Toyota Sienna Minivan LE 7-Passenger Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Review

What a great van, drives so smooth and quiet. Power door and fold flat 3rd row seats are so nice. Second row seats are easy to remove and don't weight too much. Interior gages and finish is top notch. Drive noise is much quieter than the Honda odyssey. Looking for a minivan, make sure and look at these. For 26K you cannot beat the options, features, Toyota reliability and resale value.


Best Features

Fold flat 3 row seat, so easy to use. Dashboard layout and controls are Lexus type quality in a Toyota price. The van looks cool especially with the upgraded aluminum wheels. Privacy glass and cabin mirror are nice as well.


Worst Features

Only minor complaint would be the transmission shifting when stepping on the gas is not as smooth as silk but certainly not a showstopper. Comes with both CD and Cassette, why bother with the cassette, who uses those anymore...

2005 Toyota Sienna Minivan XLE 7-Passenger Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Review

The Sienna has been great. We were sold on the Honda Odyssey for a long time, but decided to look at Toyota near the end. My wife and I both loved it. Great van, also an excellent value. We have the XLE with leather.


Best Features

Sliding doors / hatch. Engine power and smoothness. Comfort.


Worst Features

It is pretty tight getting into the garage. It would be nice if it had automatically retractable mirrors.
