2011 Toyota Sienna SE: 7,000 Miles on Cool Wheels
February 23, 2011
Our long-term 2011 Toyota Sienna crossed the 7,000-mile mark on my watch.
After 7,000 miles it still looks new, at least to the casual observer. As Mike Schmidt noticed, if you look closely at the underside of the body cladding there are some obvious scrape marks.
One item I noticed as the car was being towled off at a car wash was how attractive those 19-inch chrome wheels look. They never stood to me before, though I thought the van had a generally appealing look. I only noticed the wheels this past week.
In my opinion that's the sign of a perfect wheel design -- doesn't overwhelm the car's overall appearance, just subtly enhances it.
