One Headache After Another-Unreliable
By stacy banks on


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


If there is an example that Toyota doesn't have its thumb on quality control, it is me. I jumped the car 14 times the first year I owned it even though the battery checked out O.K. They said it didn't need to be replaced. Just after the warranty expired, it needed to be replaced. Power door broke-$1500 to fix. Electric locks go crazy and can't open doors. Have to crawl out. Has never shifted smoothly although transmission checks out O.K. Frequently lurches and downshifts unexpectedly. Radiator replaced in 2nd year. None in stock had to wait a week. The rocker panels rusted in the first year. I had to change the tires in the first month - not good on snow and ice. Generally, a bad car.

Best Features

Turning radius is brilliant. 2nd seat side windows roll down. Interior is comfortable and spacious. Rear storage is very good. Light blue on the instrument panel is nice.

Worst Features

Overall quality, especially that pertaining to electronics. It is a little scary not to be able to get out of your car. I would also suggest an automatic light shut off. The air conditioning vent in the second row blows on passenger's heads. I have heard a number of complaints about that.
