It started off so well
By nashvegasmom on


2005 Toyota Sienna LE 8-Passenger Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Bought van brand new after bad Chrysler T&C.
The first 3 years were great.
Here is the laundry list of problems we have encountered, none unique to us: rear door not staying up - repaired b4 recall issued, tires wear extremely quickly even w/ regular rotation, radio does not respond to buttons correctly and often has no display or only partial digital display, gear shift clip broken so have to hold with one hand while removing keys from ignition when you park, manual side door handle broken-2X, gasket around windshield detached and dealer blamed on auto carwashes that I rarely used, side doors freeze shut every winter-in NASHVILLE!, auto door no longer works w/buttons - must start manually

Worst Features

All of the things I mentioned above should not happen. Most have been listed as problems with numerous owners. I have just turned over 100K and I expect to have some problems but not the kinds I listed above. We bought a Tundra in 2010 that has had no problems so far but we are just getting to the 3rd anniversary of ownership. I hope it won't be the same experience.
