A big disappointment
By Sad owner on


1999 Toyota Sienna XLE 4dr Minivan


I have owned Toyotas for years. I had
always been happy with their quality
and reliability - until now. I have
had nothing but problems with this van
and been blamed repeatedly by the
dealer for all the problems. Its funny
that I take care of all my Toyotas the
same way and none of them ever had any
problems like this.
The engine is destroyed by oil sludge.
Its in the shop getting a new engine
right now.
The interior of the van is falling
apart. The vanity mirrors fell off.
The door buttons stick in the down
position so you can't close the door.
I haul my kids around in this van and
it needs to be safe and reliable. This
van is WAY off base for that.

Best Features

Great engine power (until it fills with sludge). Comfortable seating. Easy to remove rear seats.

Worst Features

Improve quality. Its the Toyota trademark and its taking a beating on this van. There have been thousands of complaints. Improve dealer service - I've never been treated so lousy before by someplace where I was a long time customer.
