Expanding family, so . . . Sienna XLE
By Fatguyinalittlecoat on


2009 Toyota Sienna XLE 7-Passenger 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


We looked at a lot of competitors, 3- row suvs, and felt this gave us the best compromise of function, mileage, features. It is a quiet, nicely put together ride. It came with the features (DVD, leather, power everything) we wanted. If you have kids and take frequent road trips, this is the way to go. We drove the Nissan, Honda (3x), had a Ford (loud), Mazda5, and checked out the Hyundai but felt this was the way to go after researching and testing. I really liked the Mazda5 but with 2 kids and 1 on the way, we decided a "full-size" minivan is what we needed.

Best Features

1) Dealer-installed DVD player/quiet ride. When the kids are watching a DVD using headphones, parents can actually talk. 2) Power doors/hatch. Crazy how lazy you get after getting used to it. 3) Storage areas, like the one in the door armrest.

Worst Features

The Honda's 2nd row, center seat is pretty cool. An all-weather funk catcher in the back-back would be awesome. These are just nits, really it is a solid, well rounded ride that when I weighed everything (personal Toyota experience, $, features, space) this was an obvious choice.
