2005 Toyota Sienna LE 7-Passenger Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 5A)
This vehicle has been a god-send to our family. We fill up the vehicle, and are too busy to mess with repairs. We purchased this vehicle with 68k and have doubled the mileage in 3 years with no issues at all. I have replace tires and oil only. Every thing works and works well. It is a pleasure to drive and the mileage for a van is great, consistently in the mid-20's- towing our pop-up I still get 18! Most of my extended family have owned GM or Chrysler products and I spent more up-front for my van, but in the long run saved money because of reliability.
This is easy- the drive- it is so smooth! The reliability goes hand in had with this. The collapsing rear seats in the 40/60 design is also very helpful. It also has an awesome turning radius for a vehicle this size.
Thicker paint, uh, seat belts are a pain- seem to get stuck often.
