Still chugging along after 13 1/2 years
By sf_sienna on


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


We bought this 2004 model in the summer of 2003 and now have 165K miles on it. Very good reliability with minimal maintenance and repairs until after 10 years. Recent issues we've run into include the power door cables breaking, power steering rack leaking, and lower control arms breaking. Other than this we've changed the timing belt, spark plugs, and front brake pads (@50K and @100K) plus the usual maintenance items such as oil, filters and tires. Each set of tires has gone between 32K and 38K miles. It's still very comfortable and nice to drive. Hard to complain. The first 10 years were really repair-free and just basic maintenance.

I wrote up the replacement of the sliding door cables on my blog and found the part new on ebay for $350: http://johnfixesstuff.blogspot.com/2014/01/how-to-replace-the-power-sliding-door-cables-2004-207-toyota-sienna-xle.html
