2008 Toyota Sienna LE 7-Passenger 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
We purchased this VAN (its no mini) to upgrade from my '04 Corolla (loved it) as expecting family to grow soon. It is huge!! Very comfy for passengers, but very vague for the driver! Rolls during cornering with soft tuned suspension and soft brakes. Interior is very quiet. Great for cargo haul - has shopping hooks for grocery. Folding console in first row gives driver mobility inside the van. Gas mileage is 20-22 in town; Toyota's great build quality, but wish was slightly smaller and more engaging. Need to adjust to its gas guzzling habit during pick up. Toyota give a Hybrid option to help its pickup without compromising mileage.
Low noise & build quality, fold 2/3 row seats, radio with 6 CD changer, mp3 aux plug, overhead display w/homelink & compass (many mileage related stats), in-wheel radio controls.
Tune it for more engaging, less-floaty feel. Right time for introducing mild hybrid option. More 'anchored' space inside so things don't move around during turns.
