2009 Toyota Sienna LE 7-Passenger 4dr Minivan AWD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
Just traded in our 07 Odyssey EXL-RES after 1 years use for the AWD option on the Sienna. We have approx. 500 miles on the Sienna. Over all the Sienna instrumentation/controls are much more intuitive, hated the Ody instr. Ody felt big and bulky but did give a very comfortable ride. Sienna's ride is a bit stiffer but much more responsive, gives the driver a better feel of control and is quite comfortable. Very good visibility. Heat on our Sienna is very poor in cold weather (>32F) and never seems to get comfortable in cold. We do all short hop drives and expected poor mileage but our 14 MPG is a bit ridiculous. Hope this will change after the break-in. Would not go back to the Odyssey.
AWD, instrumentation, power, visibility and appearance.
Get rid of the run flats or at least make them optional. There is room for a donut spare. I will be swapping out the run flats as soon as they are worn out. This was one of the main reasons we initially went with the Odyssey. Improve the heat and gas mileage.
