It's great at what it tries to do.

2008 Toyota Sienna XLE 7-Passenger 4dr Minivan AWD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
Review
As far as people carrying minivans go, it really doesn't get a whole lot better than this. For one, this is a very comfortable and roomy car. The leather seats are pretty good and the ride is silky smooth. Gas mileage isn't very good (We've average about 18-19 mpg mostly on the highway), but that's the price you pay for having a large vehicle with a V6 and AWD. Speaking of the V6, it's a quality engine. It generally revs very smoothly and there's more power on tap than anyone driving a minivan needs. So far it's been quite reliable reliable. There have been no big repair costs outside of general maintenance.
Favorite Features
It's got a surprisingly tight turning circle for such a big car, which is always nice, and on the road it feels a bit smaller than it actually is. Noise is fairly minimal, and as I mentioned the engine and ride leave little to be desired.
Suggested Improvements
The steering and handling in general is incredibly numb and boring, as one would expect from Toyota's electric steering system - it's obviously not supposed to be a sports car, but the Odyssey does manage to be surprisingly fun. The transmission is okay but it takes its sweet time choosing gears. Fit and finish in a few areas is iffy- there are some various plastic pieces that like to come loose and the occasional rattling that comes and goes, not to mention the glovebox doesn't always like to stay closed.
