I finally decided to repair the door at a local body shop for only $150 (2-hr job). Hope the repair will last. I got quotes from $150 to $3000 - so be aware. I was told by all body shops that this is a very common problems so pervasive on Sienna 2004-2007 (or so). Some said this can be a safety hazard if the door problem is severe since the door ...

I have had the same problem with my 2007 Sienna yet Toyota says there is nothing wrong with the van and that is how it runs. I have had the van since new. I know when there is something not working right. The van slows down quicker than it used to and makes a faint grinding/rubbing sound when I remove my foot from the accelerator until it hits about 20mph and ... Read More
Toyota just sent out an official recall notice: "Toyota has received reports of customer concerns regarding rear sliding doors that gradually become difficult to open or close in certain 2004-2007 model year Sienna vehicles. Although the Rear Sliding Door latch Assembliew and Power Sliding Door Cable Assemblies are covered by Toyota's new Vhicle Limited Warranty for 3 years or 36,000 miles, we at Toyota care about your overall ownership experience. To ... Read More
I solved the problem for about $5. I have a 2007 Sienna and called in to Toyota about the problem. They said the part is about $60 and then you pay the labor. Of course, this would only solve the problem temporarily. Same thing will eventually happen again because of the design flaw. Solution...... by a pack of velcro. Cut a strip to match the size of the latch. Peel back ... Read More
Toyota just extended their warranty on this problem for certain 2004-2007 Siennas. I just received the warranty enhancement last Friday and it's in the shop now being warrantied. There are some catches though. From the letter..."This warranty extension is for your vehicle's Rear Sliding Door Latch Assemblies and for your Power Sliding Door Cable Assembly for a period of 9 years from the vehicle's date of first use or 120,000 miles, ...

The rear power windows on my '99 Toyota Sienna, are both stuck in the open position. Ever since some significant body work was done on it, one window would periodically get stuck open. Eventually they'd work again. Lately it was happening more often, and now they won't budge at all, since about a week ago. (Discovered when I was in line at a local car wash.) Both windows continue to be ... Read More
:) I scanned as PDF, copied and pasted and below is what came up, but I think the section about "If you have previously paid..." is clear at the bottom. Good luck. Teei y.o.Yf product expectations, Toyota would like to advise you o"f an exiension to portions of your Sienna's New Vehicle Limited Warranty. Toyota cares about our customers Toyota has received reports of customer concerns regarding rear sliding doors that ... Read More
I received the warranty enhancement letter on 07/16/12. The letter is titled Certain 2004 to 2007 Model Year Sienna Rear Sliding Door Latch Assemblies and Power Sliding Door Cable Assemblies Warranty Enhancement Notice. Purchased new 2004 XLE Limited: May 2003. Mileage: 220K+ The driver side (L) door stopped opening and closing a long time ago, at least 2 years ago, maybe longer. After about 1 week of operating in manually it ... Read More
My problem is slightly different. My single rear seat will come up and work properly. The 2 seat(larger seat) is stuck in the well. The back rest come up but the seat itself is stuck in the well. Has anyone faced this issue? Thanks in advance
in case you did not get this yet - there is no number on the letter from Toyota. It has this at the top: Certain 2004 to 2007 Model Year Sienna Rear Sliding Door Latch Assemblies and Power Sliding Door Cable Assemblies Warranty Enhancement Notice good luck.
Nothing new.. There are a few reasons this is caused.. 1st is the most typical which happens to a LOT of older drivers.. Simply, they push the wrong pedal and accelerate into things.. Then, there is number 2. Which is usually found on older toyota's they have a left over weld that hangs off the throttle body that causes the throttle body to stick at WOT and cause the car to ...

I too have just experienced this problem. About two weeks ago our '06 Sienna LE (83k miles) drivers side door began creaking, so I lubed the door check with some silicone to no avail. Then the creaking turned into cracking, and eventually loud popping. I disassembled the door only to find the entire door check assembly moves. Upon further inspection, I found where the internal spot welds had failed, which I ... Read More
I have advised people to contact Toyota about their sliding door problem for years. I am happy to say it has paid off!!!!!! My Toyota dealer in Hagerstown, Maryland emailed me and told me that Toyota has extended the warranty on certain 2004 to 2010 model year Siennas. Toyota is offering a Warranty Coverage Extension (CPS) for rear door latch assemblies and power sliding doors for a period of 9 years ... Read More
I bought a 2007 demo model Sienna in 2008 along with the extended warrantee from the dealer. The purchase receipt says the commencement of the warrantee as 02/2008 for 60months or 100,000km. I was suprised to hear today that the warntee will come to end in 04/2012. On questioning, Toyota Canada's reply is taht the warrantee starts from the date the vechile was registered by the dealer which was 04/2007. I ... Read More
The last car we bought was in 1999. A 1998 Toyota Corolla LE. It has 136,000 miles on it now (and a cassette tape player)! We purchased this car before kids. We've grown out of it since we started camping last year and want to buy a minivan. I applied for a car loan on Wednesday and it was denied. Now what? We are now considering buying a 2001ish Sienna for ... Read More
For the $4000 to $5000 price range you won't get much of a van because it will likely have extremely high mileage. It won't matter whether it's a Toyota or Honda with 200k miles because that's all you're going to get for $4000 to $5000. For $10,000 to $12,000 you can get a good minvan, especially a Chrysler or GM with factory warranty. I just bought a 2007 Uplander for $11,900 ... Read More
The stock sizes used on these vans vary from 27" to 27.6". Your carry-over size has a 28.5" diameter. That is a bit tall for these wheel wells, although it might fit if centered correctly. I think a lot depends on what wheels these will be mounted on. I too am carrying over winter wheels and tires from my old Honda Odyssey to a 2008 Sienna I bought this year. While ... Read More
My guess is no... The industry standard would allow for a variance of +/- 3%, and that's well more than 3% bigger. You're likely to get rubbing in the front wheel well, especially at full steering lock when you hit a bump.
Hi there everyone, I'm hoping someone can help because it seems nobody (even at Toyota!) can give me a straight answer. I currently have 215/65R16 tires on my 2007 Toyota Sienna CE. Can I use a set of winter tires from my previous car that is 225/65R17? I am getting mixed answers depending on who I speak with as apparently the car can accomodate 17inch tires, but no one knows for ... Read More
Thank you for re-posting the links/pictures on how to fix this problem. I went to the Toyota dealer and left my car. When I got home I decided to goggle this problem and was surprised to find the rubber band fix. The dealership wanted $719.00 to fix the problem (replacing the bottom piece). I told them I wanted to check out the rubber band option and they looked at me as ... Read More
I agree, there is a distinct premium for Toyota and Honda (overall, but especially for minivans!) BUT if I understand the concept behind TMV correctly, it is based on actual sales receipts and tax receipts, and NOT on some kind of "formula" -- such as if a car cost "X" new, it depreciates exactly "X" amount in four years, etc. If this is so, then TMV should adjust easily for brands ... Read More
You'll find used Toyota's are way overpriced. If you want a much lower price either buy a Chrysler (Caravan or Grand Caravan) or GM (Uplander or Montana). I just bought a 2007 Uplander LT (SWB) with 55k miles for about $11k (taxes incl.). The dealership had a 2004 with 133k miles for about the same price and a 2005 with 88k miles for about $15k. I know Toyota is better quality ... Read More
Well I personally prefer SUVs but I was practically forced to buy a minivan. I just sold my 2007 Acura MDX. SUVs are nice and make you look rich. Midsize SUVs usually have luxurious design but aren't as comfortable as minivans. Their 3rd row seating isn't very practical. If you have over two children or you travel a lot with a large and older family then I recommend a minivan. If ... Read More
That generally used to be the case, but Kia's engine and trans are new, so reliability is unknown. But remember, you have the 10/100 powertrain warranty to address any teething issues. Same with Dodge - they put in the Pentastar V6 and a new 6 speed trans as well. Toyota is arguably using the most proven powertrain - the 2GR V6 has been reliable and used in the Sienna since 2007, ... Read More

$20k is pretty tough to get into a reasonable mileage Honda/Toyota IMHO. We sold our '05 Odyssey with 100k miles back in Feb for $16k. Stupid money in my book...but I'm not complaining. You can get into a decent fairly new Chrysler for that coin though. We have had Caravans in the family over the years and most were very reliable. However my parents now have a 2007 that has been ...

Thanks for the post Bob! I have a 2008 Sienna. I bought the Toyota extended care warranty when we bought it new and am getting a lesson in just exactly what it covers! I have the same issue with the folding rear seats. This is the second time I have had it in to be fixed. It seems to be intermittent. The seat was stuck down for a month, after we ... Read More
Thank you so much for re-posting the pictures and explaining how to fix this problem. I am re-posting the link to the pictures that helped me again because this fix really does work. I went to the toyota dealer who quoted me $1K for parts and labor. Then I called a local upholstery shop that was not aware of this problem. When I finally looked up how to fix my third ... Read More
Don't think they are from the same batch. I live in Pennsylvania and my door motor went in my power door after 2 years but thankfully was still under warranty. Now, my sliding door on the drivers side is broken, they said it was the latch and motor assembly and, of course, it is now out of warranty. Also, I am having trouble opening my power door now which is the ... Read More
I just had a bad experience with my 2007 Sienna LE, currently at 44k miles. I was one a road trip and I suddenly lose the ability to switch gear while I was doing a U-turn. I can still move the gear shifter to different positions, but the van was locked up and cannot be actually put into different gears. I unhinged the small drawer underneath the gear shifter, and found ... Read More
Thanks for taking the time to reply. I truly appreciate it. Of course, as you probably realized, i meant to say "while one on the left (along with the vent next to the drivers window) blows warm". By the way, I have a 8 year 100,000 miles Toyota Platinum Zero Deductible Warranty. Car has 52K miles.
I have a 2007 Sienna with the following problem. The A/C coming out of the front left two vents is warm while the two vents towards the right seem to be emitting correct cool air. First of all, what is probably the issue? Second of all, I have an extended Toyota warranty. Will this problem be covered under it?
I have a 2007 Sienna -- I love the car exept for those darn doors. They offered pay half for the part, so instead of $1600, it will cost $1200 to fix. Well, thanks very much for your generosity! We have to do something. It's ridiculous.
Hello I own a 2007 Toyota Sienna LE....we bought it just 2 1/2 years ago. We only have one power door with the button to open and close it....the other is manual but has the motor in the back to pull it in closed. Ever since we got it the passenger side full power door has worked intermittently. One day it works just fine, then one day you have to manually ... Read More
I had the same problem with my 2006 Sienna. - larger of the third row seating was stuck with the back down. I used the links above to fix the problem. Thank you so much for sharing!! I can't believe the Toyota dealers can't tell you about this. I would be pissed if I paid anyone more then $20 to fix this problem.
Something is wrong - I have never had a full tank average less than 20mpg, not once. Even in winter, in-town driving. 2007 Sienna FWD 3.5l V6. Have your previous cars done OK relative to what other were getting?
I bought mine back in 2007, Waukegan Toyota, beat the price from Libertyville by $500, the best way to go by email offers from Libertyville or other then ask Waukegan if they can beat the price.
Dealers in the Bay Area are crazy in what they try to ask for late model used Siennas. When I was shopping in 2008 for ours I checked around on used vans before going with a new. What I found is that 80+% of the late model used Siennas are retired rentals with relatively high mileage (all LEs with with a slightly de-contented EVP1). For the privately owned trade-ins the dealers ... Read More
Paid 31,100 for ours about 2 weeks ago here in San Diego..... Moonroof, Power Tailgate, SE Preferred Package, Tow Prep..... Thus far our SE has been a blast. We've managed to rack up over 1,000 in a week! Our previous van was a 2007 Honda Odyssey, traded in with 97k miles. If it weren't for the transmission software upgrade, which caused our Odyssey to shudder between 45 and 70 mph, we'd ... Read More
Here is a FYI for the group. My 2006 Sienna developed a problem with the power 3rd row seats where they will come up out of the seat well, seem to lock into plact but the seat backs will not come up. Some research indicates that this is becoming a frequent issue with the 2006 & 2007 models and the seat tracks were redesigned in 2008. Toyota has a TSB0183-09 that ... Read More
http://www.motortrend.com/roadtests/minivans-vans/112_0912_2011_toyota_sienna_le- _test/index.html While its time to 60 mph was a moderate 9.5 seconds, it feels plenty peppy, with its coarser acoustic and vibrational texture only occasionally penetrating your awareness ... the LE returned a pleasing 22 mpg. The mileage is nothing special. I routingly do better in my 2007 V6, and it has a 5 speed auto vs. the new 6 speed. 0-60 in mine is around 7.0 seconds, a huge ... Read More
jcrawford999, That is indeed a good price. I bought the 2011 Sienna XLE with Navigation Package at $32, 400 plus NJ sales tax (7%), NJ registration (now 4-years) $399, doc fess ($199), and destination charges $800. You shoudn't not pay more than $33,500 for Premium Package. You can go to Edmunds.com and configure the Sienna with options or buy a report from consumers report for $15. Get all the bids from ...

My 2004 (now since traded in) had the driver door weld issue back in 2006 or 2007. The dealer first tried to claim there was no issue. This was Longo Toyota, The a few weeks later, the door would not open at all. They then said the cost to fix would be about 1,800. I then said, great because my Platinum warranty (7 years/100000) would cover that issue. That was checkmate, ... Read More
Our Sienna is a XLE 8 pass FWD. Model number 5348 I believe. We have the navigation package which comes with push button start, rear camera, rear sensors, ipod usb port, etc. We declined all offered add-ons by the dealership (molding package, warranties, etc.) Got a 7yr/100K extended warranty through our credit union for $600, which includes the electronics package warranty with a $50 deductible. Much better price than the dealers ... Read More
To whom it may concern: My name is Diana Motsenbocker and I would like to share my story. On June 30th 2010 I had a very scary thing happen to me. The accelerator on my van was stuck. No matter how hard I tried, the van wouldn't stop, until it plowed into our garage and house. I have contacted Toyota and they have informed me that there is no recall on ... Read More
Well, I'm disappointed. While the 8th seat is 4" wider, per the videos, it could have been wider still - by far. In wide mode, you end up with 2" gaps between the seats, which means stuff will fall down to the ground. They should have just made the center seat 4" wider and used wide mode all the time. Comfort slide = Front and Center on my 2007 Sienna, except ... Read More
I did not get the RES on my 2007 Odyssey and after I totaled it I was seriously considering getting it on my new one. However, my friend had the system in her 2007 Sienna and within the year it had to be replaced. the warranty covered it but within a few months that DVD also went out and when they tried to charge her $ 1200.00 she refused to pay. ...

I have a 2008 Sienna LE that has the exactly same problem as your van has. I googled on line ("sienna sliding door rattle noise") and found there were two TOYOTA repair bulletins (pdf files) . It looks like it's pretty common problem. But unfortunately, based on some posts, it seems TOYOTA's solution did not work well. Searching "2007 Sienna Sliding Door Tick" at FixYa.com also gives some potential solutions for ... Read More
I have new purchased Sienna XLE on 7/2007, 14,000miles on it, my wife drives it as house wife car. At last week regular service at Toyota dealer, it was found that needs to change front and rear brake pad and rotor, front 3mm and rear 1mm left. This is my fourth new Toyota cars, and I never hear such thing before. My questions are how often this early brake problems happen ... Read More
Your assessment of the 2011 Sienna interior is same as those that started complaining when the Venza was introduced. It seems like Toyota is going backward on interior quality appointments. It is not the cup holders that remain after the 8th seat is removed that bother me. It is the seat bases that remain after you remove the second row of seats. (At this time the cup holders come out with ... Read More
The 2GR V6 has been in the Sienna since 2007, so it's not even new to this model. The U660E - 6 speed has been used in the Camry V6 and other models so Toyota has made approximately 11 billion of those. It replaces the U151E 5 speed in the outgoing Sienna model. Ody's trans was improved for MY2007, I think, but per Consumer Reports Sienna was still more reliable. Good ... Read More
I owned a 2007 Ody and just bought the 2010. When I test drove the Toyota in 2007 I thought it was great but then when I drove the Honda just seemed to hold the road better. My best friend has a 2008 Toyota Sienna ( she liked the cup holders better than the Ody) I recently took a trip with my 7 year old grandson and her 2 grandsons from ... Read More
I recently totaled my 2007 Odyssey. Once again my mind started the age old hassle of Honda vs Toyota. I thought I had no choice but to go with the 2011 model ( since I could not wait on the Ody) but after going to the dealer-- I had to think again. I had been on trip with a friend who had a 2008 Sienna EXL and some of the features ... Read More
I'm flattered that you care about my opinion, so I'm happy to offer it. I agree the 2004 was a break-through, and that's when the minivan market became "mature". All the best entries were big, had magic folding seats, and 2nd row windows that opened. It gained power and weight yet gave up no fuel efficiency. I guess we get diminishing returns, since the outgoing model was already so good. The ... Read More
Anyone know if the "VIP" Toyota remote start advertised on the accessories section of their website is compatible with my 2007 Sienna XLE Ltd AWD? If not, anyone have a suggestion as to a product, keeping in mind the car has power sliding doors and power trunk? Thanks!
The drivers side rear slider doesn't latch. This makes the interior lights stay on, thus killing the battery. Even with the light switch shut off it kills the battery because it senses the door is open an tries to draw the door closed all night. Toyota "fixed" the problem once still under warranty. about 30k miles . The next time it wasn't, and were told that it could be two different ... Read More
Maybe no recall, but there are problems with the 2007. Our 07 Sienna has different one. The drivers side slider doesn't latch. This makes the interior lights stay on, thus killing the battery.

At the auto show the Toyota stand was very busy (a week ago). Also, on fitzmall the Sienna prices for 2010s are still higher than what I paid in 2007. Even in 2009 they were lower.

Got to see one of these in the flesh on Sunday, and overall I was pretty impressed, though I will point out some dislikes as well. Let's start with the bad. The mother-in-law seat is much smaller than the current 8 seat model. Sure the outer seats now have arm rests and are proper captain's chairs, but I'd say it's about 10" wide instead of the old 20" wide center seat. ... Read More
marketing ploy that only helped Automakers cheap out on the cost of engineering a proper spare tire storage location That doesn't make sense... Think about it - my Sienna does have a spare. So they did have the cost of engineering a spare tire location - AND the expensive of taking that out. It's even worse than what you were saying.
My dad just dumped their sienna they loved it but after dealing with runflat issues they sold it. They pack the three kids in a SUV now which has a proper spare tire and get this good tires that don't wear out at 20,000 miles and cost $1000 to replace. Don't get me started on when they got stranded when the run flat failed and no replacement could be found for ... Read More
My neighbor has a BMW and also has the same complaint. I think I'll take a flat every 10 years over run-flats.
Honda Odysey also has problem with the run flats. Just stay away from the run flats regardless of auto maker.
The Dealer would go as low as 26k. I passed. Just didn't feel right. And I heard a 'run flat' tire horror story today. Needed 5 sets of tires in 6 years.... with rotating every 5 thousand miles.... Each set is $1200..... I think I'm officially pushed away from the Sienna after hearing that story.....
If it feels wrong to you then its not the right price for you...... re: DVD and NAV - I believe those are always options on the lower trim cars ie you don't have to buy a Limited just to get DVD NAV. We all KNOW its Feb for the 2011s - its plastered all over the Net. Cynically I could say that a salesman wants you to buy the car ... Read More
It is loaded (DVD, Nav, Parking sensors, Rear camera, ... )... certified pre-owned .... but the asking is almost 27k. Feels hard to justify that amount given its mileage, but it is in outstanding condition. I think it should be more in the 24k ballpark but the Edmunds TMV says 29k. I think if I pay over 25k I'm a sucker. Does anyone have any advice on a price for this ... Read More
Hi pqp3, Well, a Toyota dealer had agreed to replace the VVTi actuators, camshaft, and housing assembly as per TSB 3109 on warranty. However, even after this substantial repair work, I continued to notice "diesel" engine sound at cold start. A chief mechanic at the dealership had offered to keep my Sienna for a few days so that he could conduct further analisys. Eventually, the dealership had decided to replace a ... Read More
Did you have any luck with the engine noise problem? I have just bought a 2008 model which has the same problem but only in cold weather. Did Toyota cover the repair cost? If not how much was the repair?
V6s tend to be quiet. The timing chain actually makes the 2GR (3.5l in 2007+ Siennas) engine louder than the prior 3MZ (3.3l V6 MY2004-2006), but Toyota added insulation to the firewall and door sills to make up for the extra noise.
I just traded my '05 Matrix with 273,000 km (all mine!) on a used 2007 Sienna LE with 40k. It came with the extra value package - heated and powered leather seats, power doors, etc. The only issue I have with the van is the shortage of driver kneeroom. I'm 6'1" and a lot of it is legs. I didn't have this problem with the Matrix, my '98 Sienna that I ... Read More
Not at all. A limited goes for about 37k and more. So a huge difference between LE and limited. A new LE is 24.5k .You can get a 1 yr LE for 18k or less with less than 25k miles. :P And if the Limited included Nav or back up cam - then it`s a pretty good deal. A limited is truly luxurious compared to the LE. Personally, I love the ... Read More
By the way, in the May issue, 2007, of Consumer Reports, they measured the ground clearance and the AWD model did have an extra inch of clearance compared to the FWD Sienna. That is not mentioned in the Toyota brochure, though. For what it's worth... This review discusses the trade-offs specifically: http://www.samarins.com/reviews/odyssey_05.html They list "Good handling for a minivan" as a strength but complain about the "Low ground clearance (good for ... Read More
I too would have liked to see more MPG from the V6. With the high fuel prices of 2007 and 2008, I would have thought Toyota would have come up with better MPG on their new 2011 Sienna. I don't think most drivers will be satisfied with the 4 cyl version. I have been known to be wrong before.
I also like the overhead controls (temp, compass) on the LE EVP#2 That's the trip computer I was mentioning, I love it too, especially the fuel economy read outs. 2 of our 3 vehicles have that and I miss it when I'm driving the 3rd one. You may not have noticed but you also have power 3rd row window vents (switch by your left knee), another bonus on the Sienna. I'm ... Read More
In the "2008 Minivans" thread, 2 years ago or so, he said it himself: I agree that the Odyssey is the MOST expensive and the Sienna has the MOST power at the lowest price That's a direct quote, straight from the horse's mouth. You can't spin that, no way no how. He even put it in CAPS, feeling the need to shout it. Sure an LE lacks dual climate control, but ... Read More
Can you tell me where you are located and who you spoke to at Toyota (and their number). I have the same problem. All 4 tires on my 2007 Sienna CLE Limited are shot- worn out at 26,000 miles. Thanks.
I am looking to buy a used 2007 Sienna van with 30k miles from a private party. It also comes with Toyota's transferable 7yr/100k Platinum warranty. How much should I offer for the warranty above the fair price for the van? The owner wants $2k, which I feel is quite high. Thanks!
My 2007 Sienna XLE AWD's run flat tires are all shot at 22,000 miles. I have been offered 2 replacements by Toyota and $100 form the dealer. This takes me down to $345. All this good will after many phone conversations and many unsurprised service people. Did I mention the brow beating from the Toyota Corp. representative. He sarcastically told me how lucky I was that I was getting any help ... Read More
With AWD it may not be good idea to replace only 2 tires. Check manual what Toyota says about maximum circumference difference. For example Subaru advises that all tires should be within .25" with each other's circimference. You can go Go Flat tires but are you ready to handle flat tire situation without spare. Do you plan to buy spare tire along with regular tires. Krzys
The Odyssey is quicker... It's not, at least not in acceleration. Handling-wise the Odyssey does better than the Toyota (simply because the Toyota is tuned to ride softer, which it does). The Odyssey has a more aggressive throttle tip-in, but the Toyota has a lot more juice under the hood. Everything I read about the 3.5L 2GR engine in Toyotas say that it seems particularly strong, perhaps stronger than its horsepower ... Read More
I have had a 2007 Odyssey for 2 years and wish I had bought a Sienna! A couple months after I bought it the breaks felt like there was air in the break lines. I finally took it in (I procrastinate because I hate dealing with service departments). They said they could not replicate the problem. I took it back the next day with fresh blueberry muffins and right away they ... Read More
I have a 2007 Sienna with 49,000 Km, and have the same problem. Dealer said that the noise is due to a variable valve gear bolt being too close to the front engine cover and had agreed to replace the bolt with a updated one. Apparently, Toyota issued a TSB on this issue. My van is still at the dealership undergoing repair. Will let you know how the repair worked out. ... Read More
I bought a second hand 2007 Sienna LE 8 Passenger (49,000 Km) three weeks ago. Having noticed some noise from the engine (sounds like diesel engine), I took the van back to the delaership for inspection. They mentioned that the noise is due to a variable valve gear bolt being too close to the front engine cover, and Toyota had issued aTSB and updated parts to correct the noise issue. The ...

It's a bit tough to get the exact equipment from one van to the other, but I found a few rough equivalents when I was shopping: Ody LX ~= Sienna CE pkg 2 Ody EX ~= Sienna LE pkg 3 (this is what I got) EX-L ~= XLE pkg 6 EX-L-RES ~= XLE pkg 7 EX-L-RES-NAV ~= XLE pkg 8 Toyota shuffles the packages each year, so it's hard to get ...

I had the same problem with Sienna 2004. As I drove it out brand new from the Toyota dealer in 2004 and got it in front of the driveway, I noticed an oily patch under the front left tire. I checked and saw it was coming from the strut. I took it back to the dealer who with a smile had the strut replaced under warranty. Recently, in april 2009 after ... Read More
I just had the struts replaced, under warranty, on my 2007 Sienna XLE Ltd AWD. The left front strut was making noise and Toyota advised that upon inspection they found a leak in the right front strut also. In addition, the steering rack was leaking. The car has slightly less than 19000 miles on it. Toyota told me that they verified that the problems were "factory defects" and covered under warranty. ... Read More
We are on our third rental/fleet vehicle and haven't had any problems yet (although we've only had the third vehicle for 3 days so far!). We purchased an 03 Mitsubishi Galant from Enterprise in 2004 w/ 30K on it and it worked great... no major repairs at all. We had it until 12/07 when I was the center vehicle in a 5-car pileup on the highway... which I walked away from! ... Read More
Our Navigation system is showing that we are in Oregon, but we are actually in Las Vegas NV, any help on how to switch it or reset to our actual location? We have a 2007 Toyota Sienna XLE Limited, thanks!
According to the Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A, Inc Mailing titled: "2004 THROUGH 2007 TOYOTA SIENNA DOOR CHECK MOUNTING PANEL WARRANTY ENHANCEMENT". Why didn't all 2004 thru 2007 Toyota Sienna Owners receive their copy - or, do some who claim to own a Sienna NOT actually own a Sienna?
What do you mean by "the party's over"?
On the 2007 Toyota Sienna there is an electric solenoid in the rear hatch, if that goes out- the party is over. Has anyone else had this issue? I have found a great disparity in dealers.
New EX-L owner. VCM: For me I can not tell when it goes on and off. For those with VCM issues, in 2007 or 2008 I believe Honda switched to VCM 2 which should be smoother than the old VCM. So unless you are testing the latest and greatest, your experience does not apply to new ody shoppers. What surprised me about VCM: it goes on/off .... a lot. I thought ... Read More
Mine does the exact same thing. However it only does it when it is cold outside and only for 5 minutes at the most. I had the Toyota dealer look at it and the mechanic said that they all did that and that there was nothing wrong with it. The van had about 30k miles on it when I took it in.
We are having problems with our Toyota Sienna 2006 sliding doors. They never worked properly since we bought the vehicle. They were repaired in 2007 but never really worked properly and now they are frozen. The warranty has expired. My problem with Toyota is that this is a manufacturer's defect that should be fixed at their cost. One thing I can say for sure is I won't ever get another Toyota ... Read More
I bought a 2009 Sienna LE, from Toyota of Orange, Orange, CA, in December of 2008 for OTD $26,500. This includes Pkg 1. I got White with Gray interior, 8 passenger seating. I truly dont think there is the Beige interior available, though it should theoretically be available, because I really wanted White, and wanted to compare Beige and Gray inside, went to 3 dealers but none had Beige. So gray ... Read More
