2006 Toyota Sienna CE 7-Passenger 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Purchased a 2006 CE 7 passanger Sienna new. The vehicle now has 160,000 kms. The vehicle had some early issues. The air bag light came on and took 2 years to resolve. Had to fight Toyota and dealer all the way. Finally replaced main wiring harness. Also had to replace drivers door (yes the whole door) due to broken hinges. All covered by Toyota. Other than that the vehicle has been good. It has plenty of power and is comfortable on long trips. My van is a box stock CE. From what I hear people with the fancy ones have more problems.


Favorite Features

Comfortable on long trips. Good power.


Suggested Improvements

An outside air thermometer would be nice. Toyota needs to learn about Customer Service.

Review

Bought it in Nov 2006. Two years is too short a period to rate but so far we really like this minivan. We had check engine light once but at dealership they told us that we accidentally cut a wire under the seat and they fixed it for free.


Favorite Features

Smooth ride, a lots of space, dashboard look.


Suggested Improvements

Wires under the front seats should be better protected.

2006 Toyota Sienna CE 7-Passenger 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Review

We bought the Toyota Sienna after we compared it side by side to a Honda Odyssey. Basically, we like the ride of the Sienna more. It feels like a car, we thought the Honda rode like a truck. It is spacious, comfortable - even on the third row and has all the features that Honda has but more options for the same money. I would highly recommend the Sienna.


Favorite Features

The ride. It is an absolute joy to drive. The other thing I love is its agility. You don't feel like you are driving a van, but a car.


Suggested Improvements

Not make the power doors such an expensive upgrade.

2006 Toyota Sienna CE 7-Passenger 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Review

We bought it in 06/06 and could not be happier. Everything works well and we are in the middle of a road trip (1100+ mi.). With 7 passengers and a full load of luggage, we are averaging 22.13 mpg. The van performs well under all conditions and has all the features that we needed and even some that we wanted. No mechanical problems at all. It compares well with other vehicles we tested and better than most. We have 5 children and all have found their favorite spot.


Favorite Features

All the cupholders and the storage space is exceptional. Instrument cluster and adj armrests. Sliding door windows retract, unlike some vans that are stationary. Vision for the driver in all directions. Good sound system. Good fuel econ. Quiet engine. Great styling.


Suggested Improvements

None come to mind.

2006 Toyota Sienna CE 7-Passenger 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Review

First thing I should say, it has an EXCELLENT turning radius. I used to drive my small scion xA but observed no difference in handling Sienna while turning. Next thing I should say,it has an EXCELLENT tight steering control. I love it, really LOVE it. It gives confidence to the drivers while driving a mini-van like this. Quiet engine. Nice roomy interior with sufficient compartments. Good rear view when you look over your shoulder while crossing the lanes. Good value if you want to settle with a single car for a long time. I was (am) worrying about its tire as few people in this forum is complaining. I yet to see for it. I yet to see its fuel efficiency (I believe it may not be worse).


Favorite Features

Turning radius, tight steering control, exterior look, rear telescopic mirror.

Review

I never thought I would own a mini van. But having a sedan with 2 kids just wasn't working out. The sienna offers so much room for the kids. It drives a lot better than I thought. My wife loves it. I like the fact of how safe I feel with her driving her and the kids around. I test drove a lot of mini vans and this by far was the best. I got the lower end model and it has everything you need and more.


Favorite Features

Back Seats folding in the floor, plus room in the back when the seats are up. I aslo love the the storage comparments. My favorite is the vents in the back seats with a seperate climate control than the front.


Suggested Improvements

Put Tinted windows on all the models

Review

Smooth car like ride. Smart interior design. Child car seat attachment easy. "Space Age" instrument cluster. Simple controls. Middle second row seat not easy to transition forward.


Favorite Features

Interior control layout. Ride comfort and car-like handling.


Suggested Improvements

Reduce amount of front bumper area (collects lots of road debri, bugs, etc.)

Review

The Toyota Sienna is a wonderful vehicle to drive, and so comfortable. The telescope wheel, the sound system, the drop down table center front, and the ability to fold second row and stow the 3rd row makes it so handy when hauling needs. There are also so many "pockets" for a number of things to stow, like side arm rests that lift and are adjustable, map pockets, drink holders specially formed for soda or water bottles, I could go on and on. What a great vehicle. My husband is handicapped, and he is so comfortable in our new Sienna. Try it, you'll love it!


Favorite Features

Telescope steering wheel, space, folding 2nd and 3rd row seats, conversation mirror, comfortable captain seats, pockets for maps, sunglasses, etc.


Suggested Improvements

Slightly darker tinting on windows for sun glare.

Review

If reliability and quiet, smooth ride are important to you this is your van! This is a quality ride. Consumer reports uses term Lexus-quality to describe the van and I would agree.


Favorite Features

Quite even at highway speeds. Smooth ride. Great turning radius. Roll down rear windows. Fold down rear seats. Reliabiliy.


Suggested Improvements

Better tires.

Review

I purchased my van to replace a small car. The Sienna has been the best car purchase I have ever made. It is also the 28th car I have owned.


Favorite Features

Performance. The response when I need to pass. Very smooth, great power.


Suggested Improvements

It would be nice to have a back up camera in the lower models.
