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.

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


Review

We just returned from a 500 mile trip with two small kids. There was tons of flexibility and average gas mileage for mostly highway driving was 25 mpg. I cannot begin to compliment Toyota for thinking of so many little things to make the car more comfortable. We upgraded from a sedan and it will be worth the small drop in mileage to have the space and flexibility.


Best Features

Garbage bag hooks, lights everywhere, fold down front passenger seat, split 3rd row, rear audio, power side door, steering wheel electronic controls, pop up table between front buckets, adjustible seating for 2nd and 3rd row for leg room and recline, etc.


Worst Features

Glove box light, auto headlight off, more lights in cargo area,

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


Review

I never thought I would be caught dead in a minivan. I was wrong, this minivan hits home. We tested other SUV's and wagons (no other minivans) and none of them came close to the space utlization or refinment that the Sienna had. Ultimatly the decision came down to the Volvo XC70 or this. My mother had to choose one without testdriving it (my father did that with me)because we neede to jump on the deal. She chose the Sienna becase of the space and toyota reliability. If you are in the maket for a comfortable, reliable vehicle the Sienna is a phenomenal choice.


Best Features

Power back door, detailing, leather seats - everything


Worst Features

Sound system, light up buttons on the left side of the steering wheel
