We have 3 kids (12, 10, 9) and turned in an Audi Q7 for the Sienna and the kids could not be happier. SUV's look cool but this car is designed to move people and cargo in comfort with space and amenities. The second row recliners are a treat and storage behind the 3rd row is great in comparison to any SUV beside a Suburban class vehicle. Thus far we are very happy with the minivan except for a few annoying features the XLE seems to be missing.
Ride quality, seats, interior space, Ipod integration, 110 outlets. Overall a great All Wheel Drive vehicle for families.
Can't believe the XLE doesn't have auto on/off headlights. Audio interface is not refined or intuitive. The tires create a ton of road noise when you turn and I have a feeling they won't last. Toyota dealership service is disappointing.
