"Comfort. We covered over 900 miles on one stretch, taking us from Idaho Falls, ID all the way home to Southern California. More importantly, it was 14 hours in the saddle with just a few short rest stop breaks. The antsy kids in the second row led the charge on trip-related complaint topics. But the cushioning that supported our haunches was never one of them. Thanks largely to its adjustability, I'd go as far as calling the driver seat fantastic. And the ride quality was agreeable, both on paved and dirt roads." — Mike Schmidt
"I appreciate the front and rear view cameras on the Sienna. But I can't say that I am very impressed with their low-light resolution. Maybe I'm expecting too much? I would like to see some competitive back-up cameras in to compare this against." — Mike Schmidt, senior manager, vehicle testing operations
"Our Sienna is equipped with hands-free door opening for the side and rear doors. Kick your foot below the sensor two times quickly and the slider opens or closes. I like technology but so far this feature is hit-or-miss. It doesn't always work the first, or second, time. As you can imagine, it feels a bit ridiculous to kick at the air to no avail. It looks that way, too." — Mike Schmidt, senior manager, vehicle testing operations
"As promised, though a bit delayed, here is a carousel of images from Death Valley, National Park. The theme here is: the park is huge and the Sienna made quick work of much of it." — Mike Schmidt, senior manager, vehicle testing operations
"We set off on a 10-day, 3,000-mile road trip from California to Montana and back. Our goal was to visit Glacier National Park near the Canadian border. We learned a lot about the Sienna along the way. Here are some of the key takeaways." — Mike Schmidt, senior manager, vehicle testing operations
"Memories. I feel a small sense of accomplishment when I look back at the filth covering my car after a long road trip. This one was no different. We drove the Sienna in the snow, the rain and the dirt. We might've brushed a roadside shrub or two. And sadly, many a bug met its demise across that brick-shaped front-end. Still, a little elbow grease, and two car washes, were enough to restore the van to as-new condition. Until the next trip." — Mike Schmidt
