2006 Toyota Sienna LE 7-Passenger 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 5A)
Overall I have been pretty satisfied with our new Sienna. The ride is fairly smooth and the engine seems more than adequate. If I can trust the onboard computer, the gas mileage has been what I expected. We were actually averaging above the stated MPG on the sticker on a recent trip to the NC Outer Banks. For those who complain that the Sienna leans more in the curves than a similar Honda... well, one shouldn't expect a vehicle of this size to handle like a sedan. After all, it's a van!
Smooth ride, ease of handling (doesn't take a lot of effort to manuever the car), cargo space with the rear seats down, heated outside mirrors.
If it were possible, improve the rear side visibility. Coming from a compact, I found it easier to merge in and out of lanes than with the van... but that may just be the nature of the beast.
