Winter experience
By Dmitry on


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


The first winter blast has changed my excitement to disappointment. Heating system is a crap. There are buttons, knobs and noise but no hot airflow, especially to foot area. At -18 C (0 F) it is never warm up to comfortable temperature inside. At -30 C (-22 F) it is a disaster up to safety issue. You are thinking how to survive and not how to drive. Is it safe to steer by fists? Somebody can advice to install cardboard in font of radiator. Ok, but no room, remove grill first. I still do not know is windshield defroster installed or not on my vehicle, Toyota ca says Yes, wiper blades say No. Otherwise I like this van.

Best Features

Backup camera, XM radio, Bluetooth, folding heated side mirrors. Roomy interior.

Worst Features

Please weld 2 nuts to body somewhere under front bumper to properly install power socket from engine electric heater. Dealers tie wrap power wire to plastic lower grill. Do Toyota engineers thinking that it is a good idea?
