Vehicle2004 Toyota Sienna LE 8-Passenger Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 5A)
ReviewPurchased 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 FeaturesPowerful 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 FeaturesOnly con was radiator needing replacement after 5 years due to slow rot. (From what I understand, the 2004 supplier was the problem.)
