2011 Toyota Sienna SE 8-Passenger 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Review

I purchased the SE due to it's awesome looks. Chose the color White. We live in snow county so I was concerned about the 19" low profile performance tires for traction in the snow. Much to my delight this is a tank in the snow even with these very sharp hi-tech tires. What a relief. Same traction as my 08 Odyssey which was quite good. Also had 4 Suburban vehicles prior and traction for the minivan is comparable. Minivans are quite, more room than Suburbans, handle much better, much easier in and out, much better gas mileage. Most guys I know love them but the wives still feel they don't want them yet. I hope this will change. Minivans are the greatest. What a way to Tour. SE is a WOW !!!


Favorite Features

Handling. Room. Visibility. We installed a PS3 and Movie screen. Can watch Blurays and play Madden. Installed a JVC KW-NT3HDT Nav radio. Fantastic radio and real simple to run. Real sharp. Also installed remote starter. Middle seats slide way back when no one is in the third seat.


Suggested Improvements

I have not had time to try the mini 8th seat. Jump seat I would say. Maybe it is going to be great. Can't say yet. The fact you can store it is great.

Review

We avoided the 'minivan' like none other. But after going to the auto show we narrowed it down to either the Buick Enclave or the Sienna SE. This was as we wanted a car with three rows so as to be able to get back to the kids as well as take the grandparents. We test drove the Sienna SE 'Swagger Wagon' the day after the show, and ending up buying the day after. This is the first minivan that actually turned my head due to styling, and you just can't beat Toyo reliability vs unknown GM reliability (imo). So far, only having it for a week, we are really enjoying it. I love the styling in and out, rides great on the 19" low profile tires, and has tight steering and feel.


Favorite Features

Bluetooth Streaming Audio. Styling (In and Out) The versatility of this thing


Suggested Improvements

MPG of course. But it's in average range with cars of its size.

Review

Have 4 kids. Started out thinking I would go with a Large SUV. Happened to see the new Sienna, looked at it and my 14 yo saying she had more room in the back seat..we started minivan shopping! I have a 98 Sienna XLE (kept it, couldn't give it up after 210,000 miles), so I knew the reliability was excellent. Bought 1 mo ago, We love it! Nice driving experience. love almost everything about it. Waited til the Honda Odyssey came out to buy, but Sienna won out (personally thought the Odyssey was ugly as in the back looks like a droopy backside!) and Honda not willing to come off MSRP the first months of release.


Favorite Features

Automatic doors...I know, but my other van didn't have! The things you take for granted when you have! Love the 8th seat too, helpful when I have to take kids' friends with us. (Didn't really need DVD or Navi, as each kid has portable DVD and we have a Garmin so went with SE, see above.


Suggested Improvements

I would have gone with XLE trim til I saw the light color options in it...4 kids= no way! Wanted leather seats, but had to compromise. Will add aftermarket leather seats later. Offer keyless start to SE. Hard trim on dash, uggh!, preferred my '98 dashboard.Really like the SE trim and sunroof.

Review

We just bought an SE 2 weeks ago. Drives better than my 2002 Odyssey. Acceleration is good. The appearance is just stunning. I got a pre-dawn Gray. It perfectly matches the black interior. I can't take my eyes of it. Sorry wife . My wife and I and our 4 kids all love it very much.


Favorite Features

Too Many ! The driving dynamic is really good. I have drove 2 RX-7's, so I do know what handling is all about.


Suggested Improvements

Needs the following items : Compass, Homelink, auto rear-quarter window
