2011 Toyota Sienna SE: Second-Row Center Seat Stow Spot

May 03, 2011 I like this little cubby for the removable center section of the second-row seat in our 2011 Toyota Sienna, and it's not just because it makes the seat look like it's doing an extreme yoga pose.

I'm the kind of person who benefits from having a predetermined place to put something when it's not being used. A pen-behind-the-ear kind of person. A silhouette-painted pegboard kind of person. With the dedicated cubby, I'm never going to misplace that center seat; and I also don't have to find a place in my house or garage to store it (and hope I can still find it when I need it next time).

No panic moments when your passenger count unexpectedly goes from four to eight while out and about (it could happen). Just unstrap the seat from its handy resting place and reinstall it.

Our long-term Honda Odyssey doesn't have this little cubby. Sure, you could just plop the extricated center seat in the cargo area and let it roll around willy-nilly, but I like this tidy solution better.
