2008 Toyota Sienna LE 7-Passenger 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
I am not happy with this van. Shortly after new - right out of showroom - things started falling off. On cold days the engine sounds like it is going to blow - dealer says this in normal. Cheap plastic bumpers come loose and have to put back in place. Found nuts, clips etc on the floor. Drivers seat uncomfortable on long trips. No automatic head lights. This van is less than a year old and looks and sounds like it is 5. Cheaper than Kia, Honda and Nissan and now I know why! Will Toyota run and hide again when major issues like engine failure - or after class action lawsuit scares them will they "Voluntarilly" fix problems. I have never heard a new engine sound so bad at start up.
Price - before GM and Chrysler rebates became available.
More attention to details. More interest in consumer complaints instead of "we are Toyota" attitude. Customer follow up for something besides profit makers like service. Step back from yourself and take a look at eerily similar car company and where that company is now. Does GM ring any bells.
