Toyota Needs a Compass
By losttheirway on
2006 Toyota Sienna XLE 7-Passenger 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 5A)
Toyota needs a compass because they have lost their way. I have owned other Toyotas and they never needed more than maintenance items. Not so with my Sienna. After only 4 years the front air conditioning failed. Then the passenger side sliding door failed. I was upset that it had broken, but thought it would take a $100-$200 part to get the problem fixed. Was I ever wrong. Toyota charges $1,100 just for the part and no company makes an after- market part! You have to take the door completely off the car to fix it. With the old Toyota it wouldn't have failed, but if it did it would have been simple to fix and the part wouldn't have cost so much. I won't be buying another Toyota.
Space, storage spaces, power sliding doors until they break.
Transmission - A situation where the van is rolling and then you accelerate seems to confuse the transmission. It treats you to a hard shift.
