2005 Toyota Sienna Minivan LE 8-Passenger Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Review

The 05 Sienna we have is a great vehicle. Lots of room, quiet, good looking and lots of power for a mini van. I love driving it... you don't know you’re in a van unless you look in the rear view mirror, it's awesome. But I don't know what Toyota was thinking with the tires they picked??? The Dunlop SP 4000 tires are total junk!!! We have 2200 miles on the van and they are wearing like they have 12,000-15,000 on them and are already cupping @ 2,200 miles. What a joke!! If it weren’t for the tires it would be perfect for us!!!


Best Features

Engine power!! Rear seat mobility. Stereo.


Worst Features

TIRES!! TIRES!! TIRES!!!

2005 Toyota Sienna Minivan LE 8-Passenger Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Review

We purchased a 2005 LE-8 pass with pkg 8 (DVD etc). We selected it over the odyssey for the two reasons that the 8th seat is much more comfortable than the middle/middle seat in the ody and because it can tow our tent trailer easier. I liked the guages, auto-temp control, dual power doors, 6 disc CD, and handling on the ody. However, with 3 sons and tons of camping trips - I needed 3 comfortable seats in the middle and Honda blew it. Seat fabric is fair (shows wear from our car seat after two months) and the pull cords for the seat recliners is a pain. Sienna has 3rd row vent windows, better 2nd row fold/tumble seats, smoother transmission, better pricing- $5k off price. so far so good.


Best Features

3rd row vents, 8th passenger seat, tight turning circle, ease of towing


Worst Features

dual power doors on the LE model, sunroof, leather.

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


Review

This is the most comfortable vehicle we have ever had for short and long distance trips. The comfort level is excellent,the gas mileage very good. We drove from AZ to WI and back as far as Colorado before running over a piece of metal possibly from a semi tranmission that took out the underparts of our van. Its still in Colorado. We fly up friday to retrive van from dealer that is replacing all the damaged parts. Wish it was a little higher off the ground, lost the brake lines, rear ac, transmission pan, shield off gas tank, exhaust system, cross something or other in front and even dented floor pan in rear. But was pretty big chunk of steel and no way to miss it because of traffic.


Best Features

Visibility, handling, disappearing rear seats, tumbling forward middle seats. Temperature, compass, and mileage/gas left in tank display. Comfort of the seats, I have severe arthritis in my lower spine and I can ride comfortably in this van. The 8 position drivers seat auto adjust is great.


Worst Features

None that I can think of now, except make undercarriage clearance a bit higher.

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


Review

I traded in a 2001 Dodge Grand Caravan for our new 2005 Toyota Siena XLE Limited. There is no comparison in quality, ride, performance and comfort. I'll never buy another Dodge vehicle.


Best Features

Automatic cruise control. The parking sensors are nice too. Great features!


Worst Features

Nothing. Perfect design.

Review

I'm so glad that my husband and I purchased this van. We had a 2001 Sienna and we've never had any problems. We've driven this van everywhere and have no complaints. We got all of the upgrades for our van... the kids love the dvd headrests and as some have commented, I love the fact that the kids can watch their movie and I can hear my music. There are so many things we love about this van... too many to mention. We are just very pleased... of course, it's a Toyota. :-)
