2007 Toyota Sienna LE 8-Passenger 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
I test drove all brands and selected the Toyota over the Honda. Price and features were main reasons, even though the Honda drove a little better. I like the overall ride of Sienna better. I am very impressed with the gas mileage, 26 hwy and 23 in town. I replaced the tires at 45K, but otherwise have not put any money into this van. It had been great for our family!
I am surprised how often I need eight seat. Car seat can be strapped into middle center seat and easy to feed toddler.
Side doors rattle a bit, so they could be tightened up. The 2011 missed out on several of this vans nice features, such as you can not place a baby seat in the middle center seat and terrible bar left in the center so I can put 4X8 sheet in it. I decided to keep my 2007 over the 2011.
