Vehicle2011 Toyota Sienna XLE 7-Passenger 4dr Minivan AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
ReviewHave Sienna for 2 kid family and one on the way. Purchased for leather and DVD player. Very disappointed. Complex dashboard distracting from driving experience, readout display busy. Plastics are awful, buttons and lever feels like they will snap off in your hand. Front seats very comfortable, rear seats roomy, but awkward for anyone over 5'10". Feels like it was designed for short, obese people. Reeks of cost cutting and poor ergonomics. Ride OK but get seasick at high speed. V6 motor/transmission hunts a lot: revs without oomph. Handling also awkward, too much curb weight. Trunk huge, but hard to load. Rear seat already broken, stability control/DVD keep giving problems.
Best FeaturesUm, still thinking, and for the money, none. That said, overall it might possibly the most attractively styled Toyota since the Supra. Front seats are comfortable.
Worst FeaturesNot up to snuff for a vehicle costing 38,000 dollars. Interior needs redesign, most "luxury" features actually are inconvenient because they are clunky, inconvenient, work poorly from DVD to A/C etc. ?Toyota assumes their buyers will buy anything with nameplate? Avoid this overpriced minivan.

While I respect that you have your own opinion, this review is dubious at best. At least 90 percent of the things you criticize in your review would have been obvious when you first got into the vehicle or at most, after a very short test drive. But you claim to have bought it anyway.Report it
