2011 Toyota Sienna Long Term Road Test

2011 Toyota Sienna SE: Clear Tail Lights

September 02, 2011

Back in the mid to late '90s, clear tail lights were all the rage. I even bought a set for my car, though they didn't last very long. Nearly every cop who saw them wanted to give me a fix-it ticket. I got tired of being hassled and put the factory ones back on.

Nowadays clear tail lights are all over the place. The Lexus RX350 has them, as did our departed Mitsubishi Outlander GT and even our Toyota Sienna, though these lights are exclusive to the SE trim level. All other Sienna models have the more traditional tail lights with red reflectors.

I prefer these tail lights to the clear ones. I'm over the clear look and I think the Sienna looks better with the red lenses.

Which lights do you prefer?
