2006 Toyota Sienna LE 7-Passenger 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 5A)
I wasn't looking forward to a minivan, but I really like the Sienna. It's fun to drive and looks good. Well built, very useful whether you're hauling a pack of kids or a load of building supplies. It's comfortable, but being 6'3", the front seats don't go back enough and it feels cramped driving it. Mileage is fine at 20 mpg in mixed driving. We bought it new looking for a reliable car that would last 10 years, and so far it's ok, except we have been in the the shop for a few small issues - the CD changer failed twice, wheel noise when turning sharply, automatic rear door was catching/grinding.
Handling, acceleration, braking. Turning radius is amazing. Fold flat 60/40 rear bench seats. Steering wheel controls for audio.
Paint is prone to scratching. More room for tall drivers.
