"10 years old and still going strong. No major repairs needed. Comfortable ride for long or short drives. Drove it to work every day. Roomy for carrying large items.
The best part of course is reliability. No headaches whatsoever all these years. Plan to keep it for a few more even though our family is smaller now.Excellent value."
"This is probably the best vehicle I have owned. At 325,000 kms in 10 years, it has performed extremely well. Much of my driving was done on the highway, across the country in all seasons. When I bought the vehicle, I got rid of the run-flat tires and replaced them with Michelin (part of the purchase deal with the dealer). Mine was the basic CE model but the AWD. It has always been a comfortable drive. I also sleep in the van often because of the work I do. I always did the regular maintenance at my dealer's with a trusted mechanic and mostly just had regular repairs like tires, batteries, brakes. I did replace bearings on two wheels and repaired an unexpected oil leak from a seal. The only real disadvantage was having to store that full-size spare in the back of the interior of the vehicle. My only other great vehicle was my Volvo 240 wagon which I drove until it had 435,000 kms - we had that one for 21 years between 3 family members. The second Volvo I had (2000 V70) was a lemon. I would highly recommend this vehicle. I am trying to decide whether to keep it longer or trade it in because I am away a lot and often in remote areas."
"Love, love, love my Toyota Sienna! Prior to purchasing my 2006 Toyota Sienna, I owned a 2000 Toyota 4Runner, which I also loved....it was tough making the trade... During my ten years of ownership of the Sienna, I always had the dealership perform the recommended maintenance/services that was suggested including replacing my timing belt at 100K and 200K. The only items that I've had to pay for so far are new tires, new brake pads/rotors, a water pump, 2 batteries, and a fluid leak in my AWD system. I did choose to get rid of the run flat tires and go with high end Michelin tires, and currently keep a spare tire in the back storage area. Thank you Toyota for making such a great vehicle!"
"2006 3.3 liter V-6 LE model. Bought this car new.. now have 104000 mi. NO trouble. Just gas one set of tires, two sets of breaks. Would buy it again, but I don't have to ! It'll be around along time."
"I am a proud owner of this vehicle. Bought it used in 2007 with less than 40K miles..Toyota certified. It's just like driving a luxury car--according to my sister when she drove it for the first time. It is. Turning radius is so tight--spin with one finger, with ease! Totally easy to drive and all the bells and whistles I needed--and some I didn't. I love the smooth ride and the car feel from the van height!
For over 225,000 miles I had absolutely ZERO mechanical problems. I did the major tuneups, oil changes, brakes --original plugs are still in it and look perfect (mechanic was shocked!) At about 230, I began to have 02 sensor things pop up, a wheel bearing go out, real main seal and another "biggie" I'd have to look up that I did have repaired. One sliding door had a major gear problem and eventually the dealership cut the cable on it. Decided to not fix that.
I hate to let this one rest because it runs like it did when I bought it. Never had an engine or tranny problem. But I drive over 9K every summer and do not want to put it through the cross-country trek again. If I only drove locally, or regionally, I'd keep it and keep driving it. Just choosing not to risk a major complication on the road a great distance from home.
Internally, it weathered the stress of 4 kidlets who were 3 and 5 yrs old when I bought it. Major accomplishment for leather interior."
Pros: "Comfortable to drive distances/mechanically sound"
Cons: "too many recalls and doors are difficult to close"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 5
"Car is very comfortable to drive and was reliable to drive, but it had many recalls and types of inconvenient problems. Storing the spare tire inside the car for over a year and half was not good. The back hatch was hard to close and had a recall and the fix for it made it worse not better. The side sliding door was broken and changed to manual operation for one or two years it would have cost $2K to fix but they did a recall and fixed it later. I do like the van and it is comfortable to drive. Just was disappointed with the recalls and the seeming lack of understanding that Toyota had for their customers."
