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


Review

We bought our 2006 Sienna in May 2006 to help accommodate and transport our growing family. It seemed like the logical solution for a growing family. Minivans are comfortable, and relatively stylish, and supposed to have reasonable fuel economy, right? - but more on that later. We did the usual comparison between the Odyssey and the Sienna. We liked both, but felt that the Sienna was more refined and had a few more amenities. If the Odyssey had a telescoping steering wheel avalable in 2006, we would have bought that, but my wife found that the steering wheel was too far away at her seated driving position. Very refined. Comfortable road handling. Quiet.


Best Features

DVD, MP3 player plug-in on dash, power outlets, steering wheel controls, blue backlit dash, heated seats, power liftgate.


Worst Features

Fuel economy is awful! Avg 14-15 in town and not quite 20 on the highway. Very dissapointed with the fuel economy. Could have bought a Sequoia with similar fuel economy and looked cooler.

2006 Toyota Sienna Minivan LE 8-Passenger 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Review

You don't get much better than the Sienna. I have about 20000 miles on it now and it's as tight as the day I bought it. I can get 26 mpg on the highway and 22 mpg pulling my popup camper.


Best Features

Everything.


Worst Features

None.

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


Review

We love this car with lots of space and extremely smooth run. It also has lots of cool gadgets - if you take a fully loaded car with top package, it comes with excellent working bluetooth connection, 110 v power supply, power doors, auto light on/off. It is a pleasure to drive this vehicle.


Best Features

Bluetooth works like a conference room on the road. Not many people know that when you have the car in parking mode and you push the foot-brake, the dvd you are playing also shows on your front screen also.


Worst Features

Tire pressure button is hard to use.

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


Review

This is a nice vehicle to drive. Quiet comfortable, and relatively good power for mountain driving. Has one serious flaw and that is the Brake Assist. This is a saftey hazzard waiting for an accident to happen. It engages the transmission and engine on hard braking especially going down hills and then won't release when I remove my foot from the brake. Must either step on the gas or shove the shifter into neutral to disengage the transmission. I've driven for 54 years with out a computer controlling my cars brakes and either Toyota finds a way to turn it on and off manually or it will be in some other manufactures used car lot. Radio is very poor.


Best Features

Ride and performance


Worst Features

Junk the Brake Assist feature

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


Review

Excellent dash and options layout, easy to drive, many safety oriented items with thoughtful availability. fuel efficient for size and weight. DLC and backup camera are well received. Navigation system is great for travelers. Power third row seats are excellent choice for older drivers or for physically smaller individuals.


Best Features

DLC, power third row, navigation system, rear camera, folding exterior mirrors.


Worst Features

Power seat that automatically rotates to the rear (back) for easier entry and exit. 12 volt power outlet that is "hot" at all times. Turbo.
