Love my van
By Happy in Indiana on
2009 Toyota Sienna XLE 7-Passenger 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
I am happy with my new Sienna. I had a 530xi BMW before this and before my BMW had an Odyssey. The Honda was too loud and felt big for me to consider this time. I was choosing between the Sienna or Enclave or Highlander. The van handles well. I would like for it to have a little more power too, but is enough for most people. I am a bit concerned about the automatic passenger doors. They have not stopped when something has been in the way. A friend of mine just purchased a Sienna because she liked hers so much and showed the kids how the door was supposed to retract and it didn't and she injured her hand... make sure you try this feature out at the dealership. Gas mileage not great.
Quiet inside cabin, easy to see out of windows and the car doesn't seem too large even though it actually is a bigger car.
At least get the gas mileage that is listed on sticker... make sure the power passenger doors retract, and the passenger sun visors tend to rattle over bumps in the road.
