Watch the DOORS!

2005 Toyota Sienna CE 7-Passenger Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 5A)
Sliding rear doors have been malfunctioning since purchased. Do not buy this model if you live in cold climates: the sliding doors freeze shut on a regular basis. Also one of the sliding doors malfunction and will not open at all (feels like the child lock is on even when it is off.) Other people with same problems can be found on edmunds.com under Toyota Sienna. Dealer wants $850.00 to fix. It really seems like a defective door yet they want consumer to cover the cost. In addition, don't ever try reaching Toyota on their 800 number unless you have time to spare. I was on hold 60 min before they picked up. Other times I hung up after 20 min. Not concerned for customer.
I like the way the seats fold into the floor but the middle ones are too heavy to remove and they take up a lot of space as they don't fold into the floor.
Fix sliding doors so they don't freeze shut in winter and so the lock mechanism doesn't wear out and seal the door shut rendering the sliding doors useless. Get more reps to answer phones and take complaints seriously.
