2011 Toyota Sienna SE 8-Passenger 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
I was a loyal Sienna LE owner since 2006 driving about 35,000 km a year. Previous model was well finished, good handling, and reliable van. That perception changed when I looked for replacement of the van with a new 2011 model after car accident. Obviously my first choice was same make and model. I visited local Toyota dealership and looked at all models of Sienna. I was surprised to find out that interior finish (even the top of the line models)looks so cheap with low quality hard plastics resembling domestic products. I was so turned off by the interior, that I even didn't care to take the van for a test drive. Will look now at new Honda or Nissan vans.
Exterior look, powerful engine, handling
Interior may be barely acceptable on base model, but not more upscale model. Cheap, hard plastics are a turn off for $40,000 vehicle.
