2006 Toyota Sienna LE 8-Passenger 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 5A)
Bought the van as a replacement to the 04 Nissan Quest. The engine whines if gas pedal pressed even slightly. The engine loses power if the foot is taken off the pedal and takes a few seconds to shift down e.g. while making a corner. Interior material is acceptable but stereo needs work. Handling is adequate and interior is roomy. Fuel economy is 18.9 miles to gallon in the 1500 mixed highway/city miles driven so far. Overall very disappointing because of lack of any sort of excitement while driving it due to passive powertrain and bland exterior. Would not recommend this van to anyone due to above.
Got the LE with leather which is nice but gets extremely hot in Texas heat.
Needs more power and responsive accelerator. AC takes forever to cool the van on hot days.
