2000 Toyota Sienna LE 4dr Minivan


Review

I bought this van in 1999, needing flexibility for hauling bicycles and music/PA equipment. Periodically I keep toying with the idea of buying a new one, but then again it has so few miles (62k) and has been so darn reliable, that I just can't convince myself to spend $30k for a new one. Other than problematic power window switches, the vehicle has been pretty much bulletproof. Engine sludge? Not sure what I think but I have changed the oil personally every 3k (of late so few miles ever 6 months with synthetic) and no evidence of sludge in oil filler area. Still starts without complaint first try and runs like a top after nearly 10 years.


Best Features

Very comfortable seats. Vehicle is large and flexible. Well laid out with power outlets for portable DVD players in back (why spend $1500 for a built in when a $200 portable will do?)


Worst Features

The folding third rows were added in 2004. Penalty is unit is a little longer than mine making fit in some garages a stretch.

Review

I have used this vehicle for gardening, at the first day I went to plant my vegetables to selling them at the market. I drive right on the dirt road to get to my gardening area. I also drive this van at least once every month between Milwaukee and St. Paul. No major repairs so far.

Review

Owned our Sienna for 8/ 1/2 years, was a great car, 100% reliable, always dealer serviced and never any mechanical issues. Well done. Hated to see it go, but needed a bigger rig.


Best Features

Reliability, reliability, reliability


Worst Features

Cargo area behind rear seat too small, also fold away seating would have been nice. Both corrected in a the version

Review

We had no problems until 65,000 miles. Since then, the transmission busted ($2,300 for a rebuilt trans.) and both sliding door handles have broken (around $330 to fix for both). All tires had to be changed at 15,000 miles and again at 40,000. Definitely some alignment issues. A good car, but quality control seems to be becoming an issue for some Toyotas. That said, I'm considering replacing this with another Toyota (RAV4), so I guess it goes to show I've not given up on Toyota's perceived reliability.


Best Features

Serves its purpose if you're looking for a minivan.


Worst Features

Extend the warranty to match other car makers - 100,000 miles is a good sales incentive.

Couldn't ask for more out of a minivan

Review

No significant mechanical problems in over 150,000 miles. If you want a reliable van, this is it! And the ride is quite comfortable, too.
