2011 Toyota Sienna XLE 8-Passenger 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
I loved my 2001 Chrysler T&C for comfort and enjoyment of driving. Unfortunately, after 100k miles, the transmission started faltering. I test drove the Toyota, Honda and Chrysler and the Sienna seemed like the right choice. I have been pleasantly surprised that it is a lot more comfortable and handles well on both the highway and in urban areas than I expected and have no complaints there. The gear shift lever is rather jerky in movement. Be careful on basic features. Some things that aren't listed as available options at the Toyota site for the model (ie floor mats, undercoating, towing)do not come with the car. You may have to add up to $1000 to the MSRP. It's not my T&C.
Smooth the movement of the gear shift lever, simplify and more clearly identify panel lights, buttons, levers, etc.
