2006 Toyota Sienna XLE 7-Passenger 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 5A)
We bought our 2006 Sienna in May 2006 to help accommodate and transport our growing family. It seemed like the logical solution for a growing family. Minivans are comfortable, and relatively stylish, and supposed to have reasonable fuel economy, right? - but more on that later. We did the usual comparison between the Odyssey and the Sienna. We liked both, but felt that the Sienna was more refined and had a few more amenities. If the Odyssey had a telescoping steering wheel avalable in 2006, we would have bought that, but my wife found that the steering wheel was too far away at her seated driving position. Very refined. Comfortable road handling. Quiet.
DVD, MP3 player plug-in on dash, power outlets, steering wheel controls, blue backlit dash, heated seats, power liftgate.
Fuel economy is awful! Avg 14-15 in town and not quite 20 on the highway. Very dissapointed with the fuel economy. Could have bought a Sequoia with similar fuel economy and looked cooler.
