(2) Transmissions in 150K Miles?!?!?
By alb2014 on


2006 Toyota Sienna XLE 7-Passenger 4dr Minivan AWD (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


It is acceptable for you to expect go through (2) transmissions on a family owned and operated mini van to get 150K miles out of a $40K "luxury" vehicle?

First transmission was "replaced" at 57K, under warranty.

Currently at 148K miles. Facing a $2000 bill from the Toyota dealer for a transfer case seal repair.

Called Toyota. Assigned a "Case Manager", Dan. He states since there is no service record with Toyota after drive train warranty expired and the car has 148K miles, Toyota is not accountable. He would not transfer me to a supervisor and hung up on me. I called back and am waiting for a return call from a "Supervisor".

Our first and last Toyota purchase.

Best Features

Comfortable interior space, JBL soundsystem, handles well

Worst Features

Drive train reliability, gas mileage, sliding side doors and rear tailgate problems

Seems to me you better check the lemon laws for your state. If our car companies can't be responsible for their obvious errors, they shouldn't be allowed to be sold here.
