2009 Toyota Sienna Minivan LE 7-Passenger 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

We traded in our 2002 "Jalopy" Grand Caravan for this van. It is my first brand new car EVEr! I am so disappointed in the reliability. I've had a front end noise that dlrshp can't duplicate, my brake/accelerator footpad shivers at certain speeds and in certain road conditions. Again dlrshp cannot duplicate. Most importantly, long road trips 4+ hours are horrible. The "lumbar support" is unsupportive and lower back hurts after just 2 hours!


Best Features

Sliding passenger doors and fold down 3rd row


Worst Features

Better lumbar support! Pay attention to quality vs. quantity Toyoda-san. Hai domo arigato gozaimasu.

2009 Toyota Sienna Minivan XLE 7-Passenger 4dr Minivan AWD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Very distressed at the fuel economy. Driving around Henderson, NV local driving average fuel economy is less than 8/9 mpg. On the freeway at constant speed i.e. 70 mph, fuel economy 14 mpg is the norm. My 1999 Yukon with the 350 gets 18/19 mph hwy. Overall the car is exceptional in ride and quality. Severe power limitations with Toyota battery. Insufficient reserve power to start car after door or other accessory has been on. I routinely have to jump start or charge the battery. I have been back to the dealer twice to check battery drain or if defective batteries.


Best Features

Interior layout and cargo capacity with the 2nd row out and 3rd row folded down. When we travel, cargo is in back and two 90lb labs take up the middle.


Worst Features

Increase size of battery. It is severely limited in capacity considering everything on my vehicle is electrical and there are many courtesy lights on when door(s) are opened.

Review

I traded my 2005 Grand Caravan in on the 2009 Toyota sienna because everyone told me they have the best quality (WRONG). It's been in the shop more than I have owned it with motor and trans issues and the elusive noise they can't seem to find. Give me back my grand caravan.

2009 Toyota Sienna Minivan LE 7-Passenger 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Our van serves as daily people hauler and weekend plaything for a family with four kids. It's very roomy with plenty of interior storage and cleverly designed seats. The fit and finish is not as good as our Lexus, but is probably better than average. The powertrain is super smooth and it never lacks for power, even when fully loaded. We average 22mpg in mixed driving.


Best Features

The engine/transmission Smooth ride Ample storage.


Worst Features

Warning chime when rear vent windows left open. Relocate eyeglass holder and rear HVAC controls to more accessible locations Rear seat power ports. Strap to avoid rear center seatbelts from falling below seat when folding.
