2005 Toyota Sienna Minivan LE 7-Passenger AWD 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Nice van...drives like a car. It's smooth and acceleration is adequate. Plenty of leg room even in the 3rd row passenger seat. Accessories are conveniently located. Lots of cup holders and smalll auxillary storages. Haven't had the chance to feel the AWD drive...hoping it matches our expectation during inclement weather. So far, we haven't reached the average 20-22mpg that the dealership advertises. The message center rates our trip at an average of 14mpg. But overall, we're very pleased!


Best Features

Car-like ride and manueverability. AWD feature with Vehicle Stability Control and Traction Control definitely won us over the Honda Odyssey.


Worst Features

Should include Power Rear Door as standard equipment, since it's heavy to pull down, especially for the mommies.

2005 Toyota Sienna Minivan XLE Limited 7-Passenger Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Brand new vehicle that we've had for 24 hours. I really like the feature set of this auto. The leather appointments are well finished and of extremely high quality. The laser cruise adjust is very nice on the highway. The navi system is accurate and easy to use. The three zone air conditioning works very well. There are almost too many features to discuss. Suffice to say, this is a luxury mini-van if there is such a thing.


Best Features

Power doors, power windows on the sliding doors (good for cooling the van down quickly), AC outlets for laptops on a long trip, laser adjusted cruise control, zone air conditioning.


Worst Features

Nothing to offer at this time.

2005 Toyota Sienna Minivan LE 7-Passenger Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Review

This is our first endeavour into the minivan world. As BMW and Subaru drivers, this was a new experience for us. Suprisingly, we love to drive it! It drives like the car and there are many more comfort features than in the BMW. During our first week, we put it through the paces with a 300 mile trip to our vacation. MPG was awesome at 26 MPG. Navigating through the cabin to take care of our son was a breeze. The seats fold down/up so quickly, it is extremely useful. And the ride, no matter where you are sitting is extremely comfortable. We made the right decision with this vehicle.


Best Features

Drives like a car, 14+ cup holders, flip-up table, auto-door, lie flat seats, and backseat mirror, remote opening 3rd row windows, 1/2 open 2nd row windows.


Worst Features

Make opening and closing trunk door easier with a pull-handle (very heavy trunk), flip up table for back seat, be able to lock door when sliding door is open or process of closing.

Review

I had a 2000 Nissan Quest before purchasing the Sienna and this van handles the road like a luxury car. I had 2 children and 5 adults in my van and it ride was smooth and roomy, best buy for the money.


Best Features

I like all the features of this van from the automatic sliding doof to the quiet ride. I also like its fold down rear seats.


Worst Features

The only suggestion I have is they should have a warning alarm if you leave the headlights on.

2005 Toyota Sienna Minivan LE 7-Passenger Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Review

3 months and 7000 miles have passed and this van has impressed me. On a family trip from NY to FL with 5 people, 400 lbs of luggage and driving 70-80 mph we averaged 25 mpg! It was like flying. Very quiet and comfortable. Turns and parks like a sedan. At 230 hp this van chews-up onramps like nothing I've driven in 25 years. It is the Lexus of mini-vans. Hey, they're not just for soccer moms anymore!


Best Features

Disappearing 3rd row seats. Lots of room. Interior lights and convenience features. Very quiet. Great value.


Worst Features

Make climate control standard on LE model.
