2008 Toyota Sienna CE 7-Passenger 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
Enjoying this van even more than we expected. Just completed road trip halfway across USA (2700mi round trip) with our infant and preschooler and the van was quieter and more comfortable than many of the hotels we stayed in. Very smooth, versatile, comfortable and dependable, avg'd 25+mpg loaded down with AC full on - even over the mountains & back. Drives great, power is there when needed. Highly recommended for families with small children & all the associated stuff. Smart layout, fold- down front console is simply brilliant. No more diving for the pacifier. Can't say enough about how impressed I am with this van. Feels & drives like a Lexus made for baby seats & strollers.
Feels sturdy and well built in and out. Rear cargo space goes nearly to the ground. Quiet ride. Traction, ABS, full airbag curtains standard even on our base model. Built-in baby mirror. Seems designed by someone who heard us complaining about our last car. Drop a drink, probably hit a cupholder.
City mpg poor, no surprise there (16- 17), but still best in its class. Please, Toyota, release the Japanese-hybrid version in US! What are you waiting for?!?!?! The hybrid for around town is the only thing lacking.
