2009 Toyota Sienna LE 8-Passenger 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
We bought the sienna only because of the 8 seater and the local dealer offers a life time guarantee on the transmission. Everything seems to need to be replaced just as the warrenty runs out - brakes, tires, etc.. This spring (only 1 1/2 year old car) the left passenger door broke and recently at less than 2 years old the right side broke. The estimate is over $4000 to fix them. The
reason I was told is that we drive too much. Dealer informed us that we should only be driving 13k miles per year.
Parts that last longer. Recently read that the average suburban commuter drives 32k miles per year; we live in the country. Make a car that lasts longer or up the warrenty. If a door can't last at least 2 years something is wrong.
