Death by sludge
By Tom on


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


Great comfort, decent performance are the strengths here. Fuel Economy is lacking. It is no better than a Durango with a v8 Hemi. Despite faithful 3k mile oil changes (every 5k when switched to synthetic at 30k) sludge managed to best our engine. Despite showing all maintenance receipts for 5 year history. Toyota insists it was our lack of maintenance that caused the sludge and refuses to honor the warranty. Never again will we buy Toyota.

Best Features

The comfort and roominess are incredible. Our family. With 2 adults, 2 teens, 1 preteen, 1 child and an infant in a car seat, comfort was not compromised on a 5 hour ride.
