2002 Toyota Sienna XLE 4dr Minivan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


As soon as I purchased the XLE, it
wouldn't start, so Had to get a jump.
Once I got home 3 Warning light were
on. Took it back to dealership, they
said the onboard computer was bad. The
XLE sat on the Dearlership for a month
before they could get the part from
Japan. After 3000 miles, took it to
Jiffy loob for Oil Change, he said to
get rid of the car the engine will go
bad due to oil sludge. Known problem
on Toyota 3.0 v6 engines. Didn't
belive him, until some research in the
internet. Found USA Today article and

Best Features

None that I can think of. Kind of turned off.

Worst Features

The transmission is very rough shifting, couldn't get used to it. The dealership told me it is normal. No light in Glove compartment. Make your dealerships understand that return customers are important.
