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


Review

Not one problem except the crappy Dunlop tires it came with.


Best Features

Cushy ride and multiple use variations. We have used it for hauling cargo and as a Wedding Car along with day to day use. Good highway fuel economy.


Worst Features

Longer lasting tires and better city fuel economy.

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


Review

We bought our Sienna new in 2006 and have driven 48,000 miles. The vehicle has been back to the shop 7 times and repairs are now costing us staggering sums of money. If you like this vehicle, be sure to get the extended warranty. The driver's side automatic sliding door just broke and cost $1800 to fix. The dealer said this is a common problem. The rear hatch won't close on its own and the dealer can't fix it. After 10k miles and 35k miles, we had to have both sliding doors fixed as loose parts were rattling loudly. The run-flat tires are terrible. They wear out at 15k miles and cost $1000 to replace. The vehicle doesn't come with a spare tire.


Best Features

None


Worst Features

Sliding doors should be improved so they don't wear out in 48,000 miiles and cost $1800 to fix. Add a spare tire so we don't have to use run-flat tires.

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


Review

Drove it off the lot and more than 50k miles later this Sienna hasn't been back. Get oil changed wherever, wore out the stock Dunlops at 30k, and replaced them with Costco Michelins, and had the front brake pads replaced at 45k.I do brake and corner very hard. Snappy engine and tranny seem to egg me on, although numb steering takes the fun out of it. LE seats are so so on long drives, and I wish now I had gone with the upscale stereo. Power door on the right only is fine for me, but a smaller driver would want a power door on the left also. Hatch is very heavy too, and forget about folding and removing seats unless you're prepared for a workout.


Best Features

Cup holders, steering wheel stereo controls, manual ac/heat, engine and trans performance.


Worst Features

Clean up wind-noise causing exterior parts like antenna and window moldings. Get rid of auto fresh air feature. I hate having diesel fumes inside just because Toyota thinks my windows are gonna fog up!

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


Review

My wife had a Grand Caravan that we traded for a Tahoe. My wife has wanted another mini-van ever since. We chose the Toyota based on reputation for reliability, safety, and the fact that it has more leg and headroom for me at 6'4" than Honda or Nissan. The 3.3L Toyota engine blows away the 3.8L Dodge engine, and handling is very car like. So far we have about 1000 miles on it, and fuel economy is a reasonable 23mpg on the highway. I never thought I'd by a Toyota, but I'm happy with it. My next new truck might very well be a Toyota.


Best Features

Aside from better leg room and head room for a 6'4" 225lb man the safety features give me peace of mind since my wife and kids are on the highway a lot without me.


Worst Features

Make alloy wheels, power driver's side sliding door, and rear disc brakes standard on all but the base trim CE models.

Review

Bought new three years ago and here's what I noticed. When I hit approx. 65 mph, cowl rattles. High pitch is noticed at 62 mph too. Dealer tried five times but still could not fix it. Driver side door had to be re-aligned because it was improperly installed. Power sliding door was rubbing against main body of the van--body shop took care of it. When the weather is cold, the engine idles high above 1700 rpm for 5 min. before settling down. Dealer says it's normal but did not notice this on other rental minivan. 19 mpg overall. Bought this over Honda Odyssey because it was quieter but 3.3L is inadequate for this heavy van. Overall, this is a decent van but body integrity is very poor.


Best Features

Driving comfort.


Worst Features

Better body integrity. Stronger engine.
