Loved It Until Doors Malfunctioned
By DadOf4 on


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


We loved this van until the sliding power doors started giving trouble. The driver side door cable became frayed (at 65K miles) and is on the verge of breaking. After getting a quote of about $1200+ to fix it, we just stopped using the door. Now the passenger side is making popping sounds and it might go soon. We will eventually just use the doors in manual mode. This seems to be a design flaw that troubles a lot of owners. We have always been a Toyota family, but may now consider other brands.

Best Features

Power side doors (which now do not work well), power rear hatch, comfortable seats, automatic climate controls (separate driver, passenger and rear), CD/cassette stereo system

Worst Features

Better power sliding doors.
