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


Review

This car is smooth as silk over the road and probably the quietest car I've ever driven. The 8 way power drivers seat with power lumbar is the best I've ever sat in and I'm 6' tall. All the gadgets and controls are easy to navigate. The transmission shifts are so subtle, the only hint that it is shifting is the change in RPM on the tach. The fit and finish of this car is very nice and the quality is very good.The engine is plenty powerful for any task. The brakes are very good with just a slight pressure on the pedal, our van has 4 wheel disc, I highly recommend. The JBL sound system and DVD player is icing on the cake. The kids are plenty occupied on a trip with their wireless headphones.


Best Features

All the safety features,stability control,side airbags, the front seat airbag that turns itself off with a light passenger in the seat,the tire pressure monitor is a nice addition, the JBL sound system and DVD player.


Worst Features

Some have complained about having just one power door, but the drivers side doesn't really need to be power and I don't mind that, the lazy susan in the Honda would be nice but short of that, this van has everything I wanted and then some. Nice job Toyota.

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


Review

We switched from an SUV to this van and have never regretted it for one second. Its sporty, lots of pep, and drives like a luxury sedan. We like everything about it!!!!! We compared the Dodge,Honda, and Chevy Uplander.The dodge felt very cheep, drove like a 1995 caravan with different body and the seats were razor thin and very hard (but I guess you have to give up something for 2nd row stow and go....) and the Honda felt like you were driving a very big full size fan that was about an inch off the pavement. The Uplander was underpowered, exterior design is terrible, and doesn't have a lot of the little handy items that the Sienna has. Don't waste your time comparing, go for the Sienna.


Best Features

Pwr Sunroof, 2nd row power windows, rear seat that folds into floor, cup holders, ability to change 2nd row seating, engine power, nice ride, mileage, sound system, and everything else this van has to offer!!!!


Worst Features

Maybe add a remote starter.

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


Review

The Sienna CE is our second Toyota minivan, and we purchsed it due to the outstanding reliability of our '93 Toyota Previa minivan. The Sienna is a good overall value, but has an unacceptable level of road noise for a Toyota. The ride is equally out of character for Toyota quality. Both issues are evident and compounded on long trips. Our 13 year old Previa has a better ride that our new Sienna. The Sienna CE is not for the family that travels.


Best Features

Deep cargo area. Fold down back seats. V6 engine.


Worst Features

Reduce road noise. Improve ride...too rough.

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


Review

We chose the Sienna over the Honda Odyssey. The differences between the two vans are minor to nonexistent. I have read very passonate reviews pro or con the Odyssey/Sienna. If you want to get passonate about a minivan, fine. I recommend going with the dealer that you are most comfortable with (and can give the best price). The Sienna is very comfortable to drive. Snappy power, quality workmanship. The kids love this car.


Best Features

GPS navigation system works well. A useful toy. The laser cruise control is also handy.


Worst Features

The gas mileage is lower than expected, about 18mpg. Memory power seats for different drivers. The rear seat DVD controls are not intuitive, though this is not a major problem.
