2004 Toyota Sienna XLE Limited 7-Passenger AWD 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Driving this van has been a joy because I understand it's not supposed to be agile; it's AWD for heavens sake, it's safe, big, roomy and luxurious. But watch out for run flats that rip apart and malfunction with strange bumps. The first one had a bump that couldn't be repaired, $300 to replace by dealer. The 2nd, became flat, then I drove 10 miles and it' ripped apart...I had to stop driving immediately and have it towed. Thank god for AAA. 3rd time, driving to NC and tire started sound bad, it was flat/dead/whatever, that's was it, I had it towed to nearest Firestone and told them to dump the run-flats and replace with regular good quality tires. Drove from PA to FL and back, with np.


Best Features

Size, safety, luxury, cargo, fold flat 3rd row and AWD.


Worst Features

No run flats, and spare tire setup.

2004 Toyota Sienna LE 7-Passenger Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I have been driving the Sienna now for almost 7 years and people can't believe the car is that old. The exterior and interior looks incredible and the reliability has been outstanding. At 136,000 miles it still rides like a new car and has had virtually no mechanical problems. I had the spark plugs changed at 130,000 miles and the timing belt changed around 90,000, but other than those normal maintenance items I have had no repair bills with this car. This is the first Toyota I have owned and I am confident it will easily make 200,000 miles.


Best Features

Reliability, automatic sliding door, smooth ride, power rear windows, extra room.


Worst Features

Rear seat belt does not always retract smoothly.

2004 Toyota Sienna XLE 7-Passenger AWD 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Of course all cars have various problems but the run flat tires on this AWD minivan is beyond horrible. Since purchasing new 6 years ago and with only 55k miles, I have replaced all my tires FOUR times at 200+ each not to mention the additional fees involved in disposing and balancing (that's a staggering $3,600+) Toyota service tech would just say,"yeah, they're not that good". Then the other night I simply go to roll down my driver side window for some fresh air,the window collapses for no reason into the door. I bring the car to Toyota, $600+ because of a defective cable.Technical says "these things happen, sorry". Not SORRY enough to stand behind your product!


Best Features

the hook on the passenger side for hanging take out food!! great idea!


Worst Features

Plain old common sense (good) customer service. Why not stand behind your product? warranty or no warranty, especially when it is obviously poor workmanship or quality! Toyota has lost a customer (and many others via word of mouth) forever and ever!

2004 Toyota Sienna LE 7-Passenger Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Just turned 70K recently. No real problems to report. There were two warranty issues years ago that were taken care of by Toyota. Just bought the third set of tires, the Pirelli P4s are the way to go now. The Yokohamas were better than the original equipment, but the Pirellis are supposed to be better than the Yokos. Not much else to say. This vehicle has been trouble free and uneventful.


Best Features

The amount of interior room is amazing. We have taken numerous long trips in this vehicle with two tall teenage boys and never had a problem. Have even taken trips with five people and luggage and no one complained.


Worst Features

Nothing I can think of.

2004 Toyota Sienna LE 8-Passenger Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Purchased at 92k from original owner who had only needed routine maintenance. Aside from radiator (below), our only maintenance has been scheduled (including the 90k timing belt swap) and an ATF flush for good measure. OEM front rotors finally replaced at over 100k. After being bled to death by domestic vehicle repair costs (and that with doing lots of the work ourselves) this has been a wonderful change. Easy to maintain, well-thought-out engine layout, etc. Sure footed and nimble: great in upstate NY snow with dedicated snow radials, and a quiet, controlled ride with good quality all-seasons the rest of the year. Our local repair shop is experienced with Toyotas, a good source for advice.


Best Features

Powerful and smooth. Flexibility of seating arrangements with the 8 passenger model: can seat 5 and have huge cargo area available with 3rd seats folded flat. We usually pull the middle 2nd seat for ease of access with 2/2/3 seating.


Worst Features

Only con was radiator needing replacement after 5 years due to slow rot. (From what I understand, the 2004 supplier was the problem.)
