Best Van for Grandparents
By Dan Trevors on
2008 Toyota Sienna LE 8-Passenger 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
I was in the market for a crossover, but found all of them to be too small for the kids and grandkids so we opted for the best minivan on the planet. I have back problems and the cloth seats on the LE are very comfortable. Much better than the leather. Mileage is about as promised. Power is very responsive. I would not go so far as to say it is fun to drive, but the safety systems put my mind at ease. We have two couples that we travel with and they love the room in the second and third seats. Enough cup holders for two armies.
We (and the grandkids) love the power side doors. Best toy is the link to plug an ipod into the radio. In three days I uploaded my oldies CDs to a new ipod nano. Great feature Toyota and Apple.
Toyota should have a power rear hatch and auto on headlights on all models. Cloth seats should be available on their top of the line model.
