What to buy a Toyota or Honda?
By Nick on
2007 Toyota Sienna XLE 7-Passenger 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
We narrowed our search for a good big family car down to the Toyota Sienna XLE or the Honda Odyssey equivalent level. We bought the Toyota, and in the first 6 months had to have the CD changer replaced 3 times! One tire won't hold air steadily, the paint chips very easy, the key transmitter needs replaced and no matter how and where we drive we can't average better than 18 mpg. Our dealer takes care of the problems under the warranty, but we loose much time having to go there and wait for repairs on a new car. Our conclusion is the building quality for the price does not match and we are now considering trading in for a Honda Odyssey.
The overall design is good both inside and out.
The construction quality of our 2007 XLE is not up to par for the price or reputation of Toyota automobiles!!!
