2011 Toyota Sienna Limited 7-Passenger 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Review

After much debate, we sold our 2005 Sienna XLE and found a great deal on a 2011 Sienna Limited ($2200 under invoice!). The ride is superior to our 2005; I would describe it as more "plush". The interior cabin noise is much improved over the '05 as well. Overall, in our mind, the Sienna beats the honda and the nissan hands down. The ability to move the second row so far back was what sold us on the Sienna. Overall, we are really happy with the purchase.


Best Features

Second row seats slide wayyyyy back, love that feature. Sound system is far superior to our 2005's. Interior is almost as quite as my Lexus GX 470. Seats are comfortable, especially the second row. Exterior styling is superior to competitors.


Worst Features

Plastic is cheap looking, especially in gray color. The LCD on the navigation is outdated: terrible resolution and is lesser quality than the smaller information LCD above it. Pleather seating trim, especially in third row. Front seat arm rests do not articulate like the second row. Too much plastic in the rear cabin area, needs leather accents. The dual screen LCD could be thinner.

2011 Toyota Sienna Limited 7-Passenger 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Review

After really studying min-vans and SUVs, I decided on the Sienna, based partly on friends' recommendations, based partly on experience with Lexus (a near Toyota). Purchased a limited in April. What a disappointment!. We paid for a aftermarket navigational device. It never arrived, and we got our money back in August. In September, I hit our gate and damaged a door. the car was in the shop for 5 weeks because Toyota didn't have the parts available (according to the body shop, at least). It's noisy, big and a rough ride. Mine is once again in the shop. Brake trouble this time.


Best Features

Auto brights, auto windshield wipers, heated seats, good turn radius, accelerates well.


Worst Features

Noisy and rough. Reliability and repair appear to be pretty bad, based on current experience. Cute design

Review

This is our 3rd Sienna. Always liked the solid quality of these cars. New interior panels are very hard and cheap looking. My wife loves all the convenience gadgets. But.. the sliding doors are starting to stick and the power steering is making a strange crunching noise. Took it to the dealer. Yes, Toyota is aware of these things. There is no fix. Now, some of the electronics seem to be intermittently failing. It is amazing to me that these things are happening if Toyota had tested them out before releasing production. Last model was higher quality.


Best Features

Second row reclining seats with the DVD player. Wow.For a van, quite a bit of power to the road. Very quiet and good ride.


Worst Features

Go back to the old interior panels. Solve the mystery noises in the doors and engine.

2011 Toyota Sienna Limited 7-Passenger 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Review

We just purchased a new 2011 Sienna Limited with Advanced Tech Pkg. Previous vehicle was gas-guzzling Lexus SUV. We really like all the options and technology it has to offer. Drove the 2011 Odyssey but for the $ we could get a lot more Sienna and a great family hauler that is noticeably quieter. The driver's seat could use some work with the headrest. At 6'3" I find it difficult to get comfortable and Toyota made a huge mistake with that awful faux wood on the dash.


Best Features

Technology! Stream Bluetooth music from IPhone direct through minivan speakers. Ride & handling. Quiet and smooth for a minivan.


Worst Features

The headrest only moves up and down making it difficult to find a comfortable position. Whomever approved the faux wood on the dash should be fired from Toyota. Horrible doesn't adequately describe that interior mistake for a vehicle costing north of $41k.

Review

We just purchased the new 2011 Sienna Limited FWD in Blizzard Pearl, and WOW am I impressed so far. We're going to have 3 kids under 3 yrs old here shortly. This thing is truly loaded with every feature you could think of. The ride is so smooth, quiet and effortless, and I'm LOVING all the electronics for sure. The dealership had two identical Limited's in Blizzard Pearl, so we got FWD vs. AWD. I was surprised that only FWD has auto fold 3rd row seat (better mpg too). Have received multiple compliments from carpool riders. IMO the interior materials look nice, not cheap as others have said. Just pay a few extra $$ and get the limited with all the fun options. You won't regret it.


Best Features

DVD player, front grill and stance, auto fold mirrors, blizzard pearl color, nav, information screen on dash, panoramic sunroof, smooth ride, silky smooth engine/transmission. Sliding Captain's Chairs, auto fold 3rd row seats, list goes on and on. Oh yeah and the kids LOVE the DVD player!


Worst Features

Can't think of any.
