It's not all gravy
By Van driver on


2011 Toyota Sienna XLE 8-Passenger 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


First, lets get the good out of the way. The van is very good to look at, has ample power and is relatively comfortable. However, there are some decisions made by Toyota that boggles the mind. Though the sunroof glass is 20 inches, you only get an 8 inch opening when it's FULLY retracted! Ridiculous!! Unless you are a small person, the armrests are not long enough and are too thin. The footrest for your left leg is once again extremely small. My size 10 feet would not fit flatly without touching a bulge down there somewhere. General quality is also not what i expect from a Toyota. A couple of interior panels are not lined up correctly. There is also cheap looking plastic parts everywhere.

Best Features

Power from a strong engine, good exterior looks (unlike the abomination that is the 2011 Odyssey), bluetooth audio, Removable 2nd row middle seat

Worst Features

Radio RDS only displays about 10 characters. There is enough space to display at least 25 characters. Wind noise is as described by consumer reports. More sound deadening is sorely needed. On the XLE trim, the front passenger seat should really be powered. Foot rest area needs a redesign.
