2006 Toyota Sienna XLE 7-Passenger 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 5A)
For a company trying to take over the big three, I am quite disappointed. The dealer experience was lousy first and foremost. I can't get more than 14 mpg avg. The seats are fine for a 15 minute test drive but really wear down on longer trips. My sedan from 1997 is much more comfortable. The trim under the driver window is starting to peel already. I wonder when the rest of the plastic will fall apart. The wood highlights are unattractive. Interior noise is greater than I remember from the test drive. The back seats are quite stiff to fold down. The package system that Toyota uses is strange and annoying. There is already a rattle in the right rear door.
The minivan has lots of space. This is nothing unique to Toyota, though.
