So far so good

2006 Toyota Sienna LE 7-Passenger 4dr Minivan AWD (3.3L 6cyl 5A)
Owned '06 Sienna AWD for a month: so far so good. Read numerous blogs about the run-flat tires: tire pressure guage doesn't work with them, numerous people had flat tires they didn't know of until became dangerous. So, keep checking tires for problems; don't rely on guage. They also wear out early; costly to replace (can use regulars, but no spare storage area). Not too happy about poor mileage, but not too bad for AWD that can seat 7. I just tried removing middle seats to see if it makes a difference, but hard to do. Almost gave up when one happened to pop out; they are extremely heavy, & I don't need them all the time.
AWD, roomy, comfortable, sleek, pkg #2 has electric sliding pass door. Toyota reliability reputation.
Must improve mileage somehow. Less heavy middle seats that are easier to remove. Less complicated headlight system: just have them shut off when the car is turned off, please. More std remote electric doors, as in Town&Country.
