Will it die?

1999 Toyota Sienna LE 4dr Minivan


Bought this Sienna van used a couple months ago. After driving a couple of weeks the trans started making a grinding/whining noise, (shifts okay), almost like a bad differential. I took it to a trans shop where they gave me the bad news. Trans needs to be replaced; $1,400. Oh well, I'll keep driving 'till it drops. So far, 4000 miles and steady as she goes. I guess the trans repair will pay for itself. Having never owned a minivan, this one is a blast. This van never lets me down when there is somewhere to go; bad trans and all! I've never had a Toyota let me down yet; 98 Tercel, 05 Taco, 07 Yaris, 99 Sienna. Bullet-proof van, only had to do routine maintenance so far.

Best Features

Jammin stereo for a van, radio buttons on steering, can be a cargo van with seats removed.

Worst Features

Turn on the wipers and get reverse, put into reverse and get wipers. Need to separate the distance between these levers.
