2011 Toyota Sienna Long Term Road Test

2011 Toyota Sienna SE: Best Satellite Radio Reception in the Fleet

May 10, 2011

I spent time in the Sienna today driving around under the concrete byways and parking structures of the Orange County airport while listening XM's Pearl Jam Radio. The route, at many points (like while in the parking structure), completely obscured the satellite antenna's view of the sky.

In fact, even when circling the terminals where there were gaps of only a few feet between the above concrete slabs, I never once experienced a drop.

This is in stark contrast to many other cars in the fleet. The Raptor, for example, drops for no reason all and at every semi-justified opportunity, like an underpass. It's quite pathetic.

It is for the this reason that I hereby award the Sienna our first-ever Best Satellite Radio Reception in the Fleet Award.

Congratulations, Toyota. Or whoever is responsible for this.
