2011 Toyota Sienna XLE 8-Passenger 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
We have owned this car for less than two weeks. After 10 days, the rear trunk door stopped working. We took it to our local dealership body shop at were told the hinge had a problem, like the Highlander in recent times. They tried to fix it, didn't work. Now we find out the tailgate is bent at the top, so the entire rear trunk door needs to be replaced. At the same body shop, an identical 2011 Sienna (1 week old this time) was parked for the identical same problem. Their door was also bent at the exact same spot as ours and refused to work. The steering has been giving me creaking noises since day 1. Other 2011 Toyota owners have also had same problems w/passengers doors within 1 week
Leather seats - but what's the use when it's been in the body shop 10 tens after purchase?
This minivan needs to be on the recall list. It is totally defective from start to finish. NHTSA needs to be notified. Doors have serious latch issues, steering and brakes have issues. There are safety issues here - very serious.
