2011 Toyota Sienna Long Term Road Test


2011 Toyota Sienna SE: 15,000-Mile Interior Check Up

June 29, 2011

If you've been following along, you know I like to have a look at common wear areas on the interiors of our long-term cars. Seat bolsters are a particular focal point. Most recently, we looked at the details of our long-term Ford Raptor.

As the Sienna creeps close to the 15,000-mile mark, I figured now is as good a time as any to have a look.

As you can see in the above image, the Sienna's seat-bottom bolsters are utterly indifferent to editor's backsides sliding over them. Thus far, this part of the van just doesn't care. And that's true elsewhere as well.

Same thing here. Toyota's seat materials are durable.

The steering wheel is also fairing quite well. The perforated surface seems like a perfect place for grime to accumulate (and be especially visible in this light hue), but that's not happening. It hardly looks used.

The armrest, too, looks good. And perhaps you remember the trouble we had with our long-term Prius's armrest? It wasn't good.

The driver's side floor mat shows use in the places where our feet reside, but unlike the mat in our late M3 at roughly the same mileage, it's hardly a problem.
