2006 Toyota Sienna LE 7-Passenger 4dr Minivan AWD (3.3L 6cyl 5A)
We were looking to replace the 1996 MT Car of the Year which was the Dodge Grand Caravan. After having that vehicle, we didn't think we could do without a van. Our '2006 Sienna LE AWD does everything our old van did, plus it's got AWD traction, and better ground clearance (6.9"). Exterior dimensions are near identical to our old van. Power is similar, but brakes are far superior. Seating versatility is very good, but both vans have their pluses in this regard. The Sienna seemed quieter and a better ride than the Odyssey. Storage and versatility are strong points for this vehicle. Storage is everywhere....even the arm rests! My only concern so far is the run flat tires with no spare.
One handed drop down rear seats, fabulous finish, and versatility. This one vehicle can replace your car with better comfort, and can offer truck like versatility with the ability to carry 4 x 8 material. The AWD includes traction control, and vehicle stability control.
Find a place for a spare in the AWD and return to non run flat tires. We may find they will not be problem, but I've read a lot of negative reviews on the tires.
