We owned our Sienna for almost 23 years. It has 148,200 miles on it. No major repairs, just typical repairs. Still drives great and performs the duties expected from a mini van.

I bought this AWD van with 150K miles on it. It doesn't use a drop of oil, rides smooth and is free of major body defects but the prior owner did have it rustproofed regularly. I now have 180K miles on it and it is still running strong. The only serious problem has been a rear wheel bearing which cost less than $400 to repair. I love the sure footed feel of this van in our snowing northern climate.

I will never buy Toyota again

We brought this car of the dealers lot in Dec 2003. We have had numerous problems with it. Except for its engine, everything has had problems. - Radiator blew off at 15K and again at 98K - Rear shock replaced at 35K - Body parts just rattle, rattle and more rattle - Water seeped into the rear of the car causing us to get that cleared couple times - Alignment goes off the whack every 6 months - I have to change tires every 2 years due to excessive wear. No one can tell why - Automatic door broke twice! Forutnately second time the part was covered under warranty - Radio has gone bad - Side door plastic cracked - Rear axle hub had to be changed at 95K - AutomaticWindowreplac

We bought this van off-lease from a fleet at wholesale in November 2006 after our 2nd child was born. It had 50K miles and had been serviced exclusively at a Toyota dealer. We never had a single problem or breakdown. Just routine oil changes, tires, brake pads, timing belt. It was plenty big for my family of 4 on long trips. Our best was 25mpg. We loved the 3rd row fold-down bench and usually left it folded down so we could throw in our double stroller un-collapsed. We owned it for 2 1/2 years, put 50K miles on it and sold it easily.

We upgraded from a 2003 to a 2004 Toyota Sienna and there is a BIG difference. The vehicle is like 6" wider and longer and it is so nice. We were not able to put a rear-facing car seat in the second row of captains chairs in our 2003 but the 2004 fits it nicely and my wife and I are both over 6' tall. The stowable rear seat is very nice too. The gas mileage is right around 20 mpg which could be better. It has plenty of power though and the ride is nice.

Extremely Happy after 10+ Years

We bought this 2004 model in the summer of 2003 and now have 123K miles on it. Nearly flawless reliability with very minimal maintenance and repairs. The only issue we've run into has been the fairly common power door cable break. We had a lot of warning (noises, clunky operation) and had it inspected and were told it would cost $1600 to fix. We let it go and now the door is manual operation only. No big deal, we got over 10 years of use out of it while the kids were young. Other than this we've changed the timing belt, spark plugs, and front brake pads (@50K and @100K) plus the usual maintenance items such as oil, filters and tires. Each set of tires has gone between 32K and 38K miles.

I once said I would never buy anything but a Ford or Chevy, but I am a Toyota believer now. Bought this van new in 2004 and it now has 175,000 miles on it with very little problems to speak of. Just routine maintenance for the most part. The dash did start to crack in the center at 100K and the radiator leaks a bit, but considering the mileage I cannot complain. I think this year I will replace the radiator finally, but still not terrible at 175K. Only other issue I had at about 155K was a front wheel bearing went bad. You know they are bad when you rumble down the road. Still a ton of mileage without major repair costs so really cannot complain!! Would definitely buy another Toyota!

Still Strong at 100K

My family has owned this car almost 10 years and its been an absolute champ. Other than routine maintenance and a few recalls, we've had to do a thing. Its been to and from mountains hauling kayaks, filled with dry wall and tools, and has been the primary delivery vehicle for our cake business. The drivers sliding door doesn't open automatically anymore but to be honest, I cant complain given the amount of use it has gotten. This would be a great used car to purchase.

This minivan still rides like a cloud. Relatively minor repairs and maintenance: new timing belt at 120,000 and a warranty replacement of the rear gate lift pistons. I will never go back to a small car. At 180,000 miles it runs like new. Very very very happy. I expect to get at least 300,000 out of this van, very comfortably.

We bought our 2004 Sienna new. In the first 6 months, we had to replace the battery, the armrest fell off and the spare tire holder broke after one use. In the next three years, the panels on the front doors slid down and trapped me inside - I had crawl to the back seat to get out. My husband duct taped the panels on and no more problem - ugly but it worked. Then the sliding door panel's lock didn't work. You had to take a chopstick to hold the lock lever up until just before you closed it and then pull out the chopstick and slam the door. Other things broke with light use. Door weatherstripping falls down. Engine ran but looked like a beater van. Would not recommend this van.

My wife and I recently purchased a used '04 Sienna w/122,000 miles on it. I didn't think twice about buying this Sienna because of Toyota's reliabilty (we also own a '02 Camry w/175,000 miles on it). The model we got is the LE 7-passenger w/leather interior. It is a very comfortable vehicle to ride in and fun to drive, even though it's a minivan. Other than some slight vibration in the dash the Sienna drives like new, very smooth and quiet. My wife loves the right rear sliding door that opens w/a push of a button. Although, I have heard of many instances when the chain breaks in that power sliding door being a costly repair (over $1400 I believe). We love the minivan life!

I purchased this van with 60K miles on it in 2007. Since then I have put over 240 more. This has been the most reliable car or truck I have ever owned. The items I have repaired or replaced include tires, brakes, spark plugs, and two timing belts. I had to have a new A/C compressor last summer. Both power sliding door cables broke some time ago but I have not fixed them because the doors open and close with one finger-they are a waste. This van still has the original alternator, starter, shocks, springs and of course engine and transmission. It rides and drives nice with no real issues. I would rate the comfort very good. Well, with well over 400,000 this van remains a daily driver for our family. Three timing belt changes (two with water pumps) three spark plug changes, two radiators, a couple strut changes. I do a transmission drain and fill every year. This van just keeps on going. No rust to speak of-and we live in MI where our roads are heavily salted at least 4 months out of the year. It is almost scary that the alternator, starter, and of course engine and transmission are original . We still use this van for long road trips-but I did put the title in the glove box just in case we have to make a quick trade while far from home. My 92 YO mother comments that she loves the smooth and comfortable ride. This van has lasted more than twice as long as the two Dodge vans we had in the past (190K and 170K) and shows no signs of giving up. Yes, you do have to maintain it. I change the oil about every 5-10K miles in addition to the trans fluid changes. I add up what we spend on repairs and maintenance every year and it still does not make sense for us to lay out another $40K for a new one. I think Toyota never got the message of planned obsolescence. This van is used in mixed driving as we live in the country but travel to urban areas at least 3 times per week.

This car is a complete lemon. I have had so many things go wrong with this car and Toyota DOES NOT CARE. This will be the last Toyota I ever buy. The sliding door has been broken at least four times, I've had to spend money to replace several things in the drive shaft at a cost of hundreds of dollars, things fall apart and the quality sucks.

My 2004 Toyota Sienna had a faulty radiator. Who has to replace a radiator in today's cars? I contacted Toyota regarding this and they didn't care. I then had trouble with my power steering that has a recall on 2004 Sienna's but guess what? My particular vin # is not covered under the recall. Coincidence? I think not! I was told by my mechanic that Toyota takes about 1 in 3 calls and does something about it. Oh, also you get to replace the Timing Belt at 90,0000 miles to the tune of $1500! I bought this car thinking I could get a good 200,000 miles out of it (because according to the dealer - this is a quality vehicle and that's why we don't dicker on prices!). I don't think so!!!

I bought my 04 used in 2008 with 55Kmi. I just sold it in Oct. with 90K miles. I thought it was a great car. Super comfy and great smooth and quiet ride. My complaints would be the heated seats never seemed to get more than lukewarm. I also thought it took awhile to warm the interior of this car in the winter. The other issue we had was the DVD player would sometimes not eject the discs but other than that it was a great car for us. The only reason I sold it was because I was ready for something non "mom like". I would reccomend.

1) Sliding door not working properly: The minivan has one automatic sliding door and one manually operated sliding door. Shortly after purchase we recognized that the manually operated sliding door is not getting closed. After multiple visits at dealer service garage they told us that we should multiple times slam the door until it is properly closed. The problem is, if the door is not ajar the interior lighting is remains permanently on and it drains the battery over night. This is the second battery, which is not working anymore and I must purchased the third. 2) Brakes: All four brakes (disk and path) needed to be replaced before 40,000 miles 3) Brake noise: During turning the brakes makes noise. The service garage changed the front brakes one more time after it was replaced before, but the problem didn’t go away. 4) Safety built sensor damaged: The safety built warning light was blinking permanently until the sensor was replaced. 5) Air-conditioning: The air conditioning failed during a vacation trip. Toyota service told us that this was to be replaced anyhow due to a recall. 6) Under chassis plastic part fall of: Parts were replaced. 7) Tire Inflation Monitoring (TIM) signal: The left rear tire was replaced. Since the TIM warning light is blinking. After 3 visits to the service garage a permanent fix was not possible. Still blinking. At least they have used a high quality bulb, because I was hoping the bulb will be damaged. I try to find the fuse and deactivate the TIM,s module, because the service garage have no ideas anymore to fix it. 8) All four tires needed to replaced before 40,000 miles 9) All service and repairs was performed at authorized and certified Toyota dealer ship. My rational for buying for Sienna was, because at that time this was the only minivan with AWD, which is really important for Michigan winter driving condition. Additionally Sienna 2004 offered the Electronic Stability Control, which is an important safety feature. The price was higher compare to other minivan such as Honda Odyssey, but I was thinking that the premium price I am paying for this minivan is justified for the high quality of Toyota. At that time there was a quality image associate with Toyota. My wife, when she saw the Sienna for the first time she didn’t like the appeal of it. She told me that this minivan has a charm like “a used toothbrush”. I encouraged her to buy this minivan for the good quality and now my wife never lessons to me for car buying decisions.

Just had the spark plugs replaced at 74K. It was running fine, but had that done anyway at Toyota dealer along with PCV valve, air filter, oil change and tire rotation. Total bill was $625 with the tax (8.5%). The plugs are a big job on this year Sienna because the intake manifold needs to be removed to change them, hence it is about three hours labor for the plus alone. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that there is no distributor cap or plug wires to change. Van still runs and drives as new. There may be a slight whistling sound from the passenger side front window at highway speeds. Other than that, still happy with it.

Driving this van has been a joy because I understand it's not supposed to be agile; it's AWD for heavens sake, it's safe, big, roomy and luxurious. But watch out for run flats that rip apart and malfunction with strange bumps. The first one had a bump that couldn't be repaired, $300 to replace by dealer. The 2nd, became flat, then I drove 10 miles and it' ripped apart...I had to stop driving immediately and have it towed. Thank god for AAA. 3rd time, driving to NC and tire started sound bad, it was flat/dead/whatever, that's was it, I had it towed to nearest Firestone and told them to dump the run-flats and replace with regular good quality tires. Drove from PA to FL and back, with np.

I have been driving the Sienna now for almost 7 years and people can't believe the car is that old. The exterior and interior looks incredible and the reliability has been outstanding. At 136,000 miles it still rides like a new car and has had virtually no mechanical problems. I had the spark plugs changed at 130,000 miles and the timing belt changed around 90,000, but other than those normal maintenance items I have had no repair bills with this car. This is the first Toyota I have owned and I am confident it will easily make 200,000 miles.

Of course all cars have various problems but the run flat tires on this AWD minivan is beyond horrible. Since purchasing new 6 years ago and with only 55k miles, I have replaced all my tires FOUR times at 200+ each not to mention the additional fees involved in disposing and balancing (that's a staggering $3,600+) Toyota service tech would just say,"yeah, they're not that good". Then the other night I simply go to roll down my driver side window for some fresh air,the window collapses for no reason into the door. I bring the car to Toyota, $600+ because of a defective cable.Technical says "these things happen, sorry". Not SORRY enough to stand behind your product!

Just turned 70K recently. No real problems to report. There were two warranty issues years ago that were taken care of by Toyota. Just bought the third set of tires, the Pirelli P4s are the way to go now. The Yokohamas were better than the original equipment, but the Pirellis are supposed to be better than the Yokos. Not much else to say. This vehicle has been trouble free and uneventful.

Purchased at 92k from original owner who had only needed routine maintenance. Aside from radiator (below), our only maintenance has been scheduled (including the 90k timing belt swap) and an ATF flush for good measure. OEM front rotors finally replaced at over 100k. After being bled to death by domestic vehicle repair costs (and that with doing lots of the work ourselves) this has been a wonderful change. Easy to maintain, well-thought-out engine layout, etc. Sure footed and nimble: great in upstate NY snow with dedicated snow radials, and a quiet, controlled ride with good quality all-seasons the rest of the year. Our local repair shop is experienced with Toyotas, a good source for advice.

We are really happy that we bought a used 2004 Sienna Limited edition vs Odyssey EXL. It has all the require elements that my wife and I were looking for in a minivan. Safety and entertainment features like side curtain airbag, DVD for the kids, parking sensor and handling. The mileage has not been bad. Getting around 16 city and 23 highway with full blast AC. The only draw back so far with the Sienna is that the tire doesn't last long. I am a conservative driver. Even with tire rate for 60K miles, I am getting around 27K. Oh well hopefully the Sienna doesn't breakdown on me until end of life on the new Michelin Hydroedge.

We were happy with the van until everything started to break down after 6 years. The list is long but I will listed the most expensive issues. The automatic door broke down.We replaced the hinge for $400 because it was bent. The siding door motor was disconnected and we were told that it will be another $2000 to fix it. The radiator is leaking. The engine block heater did not work and needs to be replaced. The spare tire mechanism did not work and was told last year that it would cost us over $200 to fix. Luckily, we had an extended warranty that covered the cost. The CD/Radio system is malfunctioning. Maybe it is time to put the van to sleep

Toyota has done a superb job. We have had 5 minivans. 4 Chryslers and one Pontiac Montana. We buy all of our vans with high milage with the exception of the Montana. I would take a Sienna with 190,000 miles over the others with half that. At 190,000 it is still tighter and smoother than the Montana with 50,000 miles. We have taken a number of trips with all 8 of us plus the back stuffed with luggage add a car top carrier & we still average 22.8 miles to the gallon. The best we have seen on a shorter trip was 26.7 mpg with no luggage. I just put the top rated new Michelin tires on it & it is so quiet you would almost think you were flying. I will definitely buy another Sienna.

Good for traveling but we have had to replace several tires and do more then normal alignments. More then one mechanic said the alignment was a problem. This has cost us money that should not be an issue. Also the noise level is bad and the CD players does not work well.

I am having a terrible experience with my vehicle. It is a 2004 Toyota Sienna and it currently has just over 90,000 miles on it. Even though I have had my vehicle serviced on a regular basis I was shocked when the compressor shut down on my way for service. I was in the middle of a six lane highway! When the compressor shut down it caused some metal to get into the engine system. My repair bill is going to be an estimated $3500.00. I have told the Toyota Customer Service Center my story and they have only offered to pay for the compressor parts and nothing else! I am very disappointed in Toyota's and the dealership's response for assistance in this unusual repair situation.

We have had to replace the heaters in both seats, the steering column, the back lift gate only works 40% of the time, (worked fine before the recall~once they replaced the motor~has not worked right since. Dealership claims they cant find anything wrong). Skid control kept kicking in while making a right had turn, once even on the dry interstate in a straightaway. If you are going to buy one of these, at least get the extended warranty~trust me, you will need it!

This is an absolutely great vehicle. I love my Toyota Sienna. I drive about 30 miles to work, this vehicle makes its so much easy. Very smooth and steering gentle unlike my VW with is sporty and tight. If you are looking to buy a new or used Sienna just buy it blind-folded, you will not go wrong. Don't expect a great interior or a car that turns head, but if you are looking for maintenance free & great ride quality, this is the one.

Luv it

We love this van. My wife especially likes. She is short and finds it easy to enter and electrically adjust the drivers seat. She used to pick up grand kids after school and it was very good for that. It parks easily with it's short turning radius. My only complaint is that it seems to wear tires and front brakes more rapid that I think it should. Probably because of the front wheel drive and weight of the van. I would buy another in a heart beat as I would any other Toyota.

I knew within 6 months this car would not last. I owned it exactly 5 years and had 115k miles on it. Repair Bill at 5 years after spending tons on the 90k service, more than $8k. 1) Both rear passenger sliding doors broken. Watch those cables visible on the sides just under the very back window, they fail and then get stuck in the motor. Over $2800 each to repair. 2) Leaking transmission (2x already) 3) Power steering Motor failure 4) Motor leaking oil in the head gasket 5) Motor leaking oil behind the timing belt 6)3 O2 sensors (yea 3) bad. ==> Junk

As a traveling sales rep I put a lot of miles on a vehicle. I also like to keep my vehicles until they are either no longer reliable or require repairs that exceed the value of the car. This van has been an excellent companion. I purchased it used with about 45,000 on it. I am now over 205,000 and it is running fine. The ride comfort and utility can not be beat. So far I have put 1 set of brakes and two sets of tires although one of these are winter tires mounted on steel rims. The only item that is a concern is the power sliding door. at about 150K the passenger side cable broke. I understand this is common in these years. I have not fixed it and I may not.

Never owned a Toyota, I was looking forward to it, I heard the stories(the cars never die). I believe that may be the case with this van,though it has not been with out flaws. Cons: Its underpowered compared to other vans I have driven, A loose body panel? Come on its a toyota, that shouldn't happen! At 53K the Radiator sprung a leak (Because of the design it can't be fixed by radiator shops,had to be replaced, $500! not good).mileage is below average (we never get over 19mpg on a tank) Pros: This sucker rides better than ANY luxury car I have been in (4200 lbs!) AWD is awesome, Interior is very solid & functional,great seats, it has 83k and drives like its showroom new. Hard to find a better Van.

Overall great vehicle, replaced brakes last year, but OEM tires after less than 30000, Michelin now make it exquisite to drive and handles like a car. Could be quieter with better sound insulation/window design. Interior could have used better layout and some adjustable light interior would be more user friendly especially at dashboard height and rear seat area. Windows interior front are very hard to clean.

We loved this van until the sliding power doors started giving trouble. The driver side door cable became frayed (at 65K miles) and is on the verge of breaking. After getting a quote of about $1200+ to fix it, we just stopped using the door. Now the passenger side is making popping sounds and it might go soon. We will eventually just use the doors in manual mode. This seems to be a design flaw that troubles a lot of owners. We have always been a Toyota family, but may now consider other brands.

We bought our Sienna in 03, and had for 6 years. We just recently sold to a family of 5. We were sad to see it go, but ready for something more sporty. Only issues were A/C motor, window off track, and tires wore down quickly. There was a weird noise when windows were down, and the drive by wire technology caused a jerking motion sometimes upon acceleration. These are minor to us considering 126,000 miles and no major mechanical issues. Has lots of room, and rides unbelievably smooth. We just bought an 05 Highlander, and hope to have same experience.

I have owned five Toyotas- trucks, cars, station wagon, Loved them all until this van. It has been nothing but problems, expense and disappointment. Battery replaced twice, display lights not trusted, VSF and TRAC failed within 14 months, radiator replacement, brakes constantly needing work, cover casket needs replacement, radiator seam cracked again- recalls. Electrical breaking down so auto door unlock no longer works when turn car off, rear gate breakdown/dangerous etc. A most expensive vehicle and one that has me wondering if my next car will be a Toyota after more than twenty years. Reminds me of the poor quality American brands- can't tell you how disappointed I am.

If there is an example that Toyota doesn't have its thumb on quality control, it is me. I jumped the car 14 times the first year I owned it even though the battery checked out O.K. They said it didn't need to be replaced. Just after the warranty expired, it needed to be replaced. Power door broke-$1500 to fix. Electric locks go crazy and can't open doors. Have to crawl out. Has never shifted smoothly although transmission checks out O.K. Frequently lurches and downshifts unexpectedly. Radiator replaced in 2nd year. None in stock had to wait a week. The rocker panels rusted in the first year. I had to change the tires in the first month - not good on snow and ice. Generally, a bad car.

I own a 2004 (8 seating) Toyota Sienna LE. I have had to replace tires 2 times. There have been 5 or 6 recalls. It is in the shop today with loud humming noise from engine. But the most disappointing thing is that the dash has split in 3 places. I contacted the dealership and Toyota directly and they offered me no help. The car was beyond its warranty, but I have owned 8 cars (4 Toyotas) during my driving life and have never had a dash split. Toyota told me that I must have done something to it, although they could not suggest what it might be. The van is kept in a garage when not in use and I always crack the windows when it is summer time. Cannot recommend Toyota anymore.

Still have this van. I think I've reviewed it on Edmunds before. It will be five years old in September 2009. It has about 58,000 miles on it now. I'm very happy with it, as is my wife. Other than a couple of minor things, sensors, a window motor, things like that, it has been trouble free. Even those things were covered under warranty. I don't think we've laid out any money for repairs. We have for maintenance, of course. Still on our second set of brake pads. Had the coolant and hoses changed. Should probably spring for plugs, cap and wires soon, but it still runs fine. Toyota treats its customers very well. Van is fantastic on trips, roomy, smooth, quiet. 25-26 MPG highway, 18-19 overall

Side doors are rusting even though there's tape for protection. Sliding door wire snapped off because of rust, (2mths before end of warranty). Paint job on van must be poor quality because rust is showing through. We have changed our front & back brakes & wheel bearing the 2nd time in 4yrs. Really frustrated! Not to mention all the recalls.

First off, I am 18 year-old guy, and I have no shame driving this. It looks great for a minivan, and can take off when you put your foot down! My friend said "I thought this was a minivan" when I got on the highway. Yet it still gets over 20 mpg hauling 6 people every day to school. No other minivan has a factory woofer in the back. Drove on an 11 hour road trip, and it was perfectly comfortable and returned 27 mpg doing a steady 70 mph with a full load. Dream vehicle for a road trip! I highly recommend to anyone needing a versatile reliable family vehicle.

Our 2004 Toyota Minivan 8 passenger was a fine, reliable, easy to drive, no frills (we bought the LE), family van. We've been camping, endless school pickups dropoffs, family events, etc. Never a worry. Then, the cable in the automatic door broke. Thank goodness we only have one auto slider. The cost to repair? $1400! We have duct taped the thing in the shut position until there is a recall on this problem. After our shock, I have found that there are more vans with this problem than can be counted. Too bad Toyota is not willing to deal on this. We had been considering Prius/Matrix/Camry for a purchase this year. Now we will reconsider.

Have had this close to 5 years and have only changed oil, tires, and brakes at 100,000. I will admit that the OE tires gave way at 40,000 but have had good luck since (60k on the replacements). We don't baby ours--kid hauler, client hauler, material hauler (I'm in construction so this has seen it's share of tools and lumber). Only complaint is getting used to the blind spot in the mirrors, but that could be driver error. 23 mpg with suburban/highway, you have to remember to keep your foot out of it to get good gas mileage. This, with my other Toyotas (Truck, Camry) keeps me a raving fan.

I have never really been a "mini-van" person, But I have to admit that there is truly no better vehicle for a growing family than the Toyota Sienna. This van has more than enough room for two growing boys and all of the things that my wife and I need to transport. The ride is excellent and, even though it is big, it handles like a car and I have yet to find any major "blind spots." Overall a seriously comfortable and economical ride that will make even the most adamant anti-minivan folks think twice.

I'm a a person that vowed never to own a minivan but 3 kids later I went for it. The Sienna is the best car I've had. The interior space is great and really have had no problems, just regular maintenance and tires. Brakes were need at 50k but that is to be expected. We have a large tent trailer we tow and it pulls like a dream (we got the tow package). The only thing I would improve is the underside clearance. When towing (and even when not), you need to be aware of the clearance. It rides very low and you can bottom out if your not careful. I've heard all minivans are like this though.

Installed a trailer towing package and likewise installed an air lift air bag system for the rear coils and that made a tremendous difference and ride and handling, loaded or unloaded. Pulled a 2700 lb load 10 ft. cargo trailer to Dallas Texas and back like a breeze. At 105000 miles we did the first brake pad change and purchased premium high dollar replacement pads installed for $395.00 at our friendly Chev dealer. Toyota wants to rob you. Replaced the original factory crappy tires at 74000 miles with the superlative Goodyear Triple Tread Assurance tires (Nitrogen filled). This van handles like it were a Cadillac STS. Beautiful ride. Fuel mileage is consistent average is 28 down to 23.

Bought new 5/04, came with conventional Dunlop tires that were absolute garbage - had to replace them after first winter as it was like driving on skis. Michelin rules! Reliability otherwise has been good except for battery issues that many others have had - if one interior light is left on for several hours, battery is dead. About a year ago radiator showed signs of seepage which dealer wanted to replace to tune of $1000 - but since we had no puddles/coolant loss we just left as is - still ok. Steering wheel suddenly developed squeak at 68000. Not the worst car I have ever owned but not sure I would buy another.

This is the worst new automobile that I ever bought. Radio didn't work out of the dealership and it leaked when parked in the rain. A year later radiator cracked and was replaced. Then came multitude of recalls. Run flat tires needed to replaced every 15,000 miles. The kicker is when my van broke down due to a faulty heat sensor at 80,000 miles the Toyota extra care does not want to pay.

Purchased in Canada, this van is great in snow. After 44 months and 195000 km, this vehicle has had only routine maintenance. We love the ride, the room for luggage, great highway vehicle, smooth ride, short turning radius, excellent sound system. Only regret is not getting the XLE. I can think of nothing negative to say about this vehicle. Just replaced the timing belt, water pump and plugs at 185000 km and it runs like new again. Local Toyota dealer wanted $900 plus for that work but i had it completed by a trusted small town mechanic for $560. Am on third set of Michelin all-weather tires.

We bought this van brand-new as soon as the new 2004s came out. Traded from our Honda Odyssey. The Sienna is far more comfortable, quieter and more fuel efficient than the Honda. It drives and handles like a Lexus RX 330, gets around 23 mpg city and 29 highway, (loaded at 75 mph). We have over 95,000 miles on it now, and have done nothing but routine service. One set of brakes and one set of tires. Amazing that this vehicle will do everything that the big SUVs will do and still get such great mpg. When I see the big SUVs at the pump complaining I just smile. It may not look as fancy on the outside, but it does all it is asked to do with style. for a lot less.

Couldn't get in with Toyota, got in somewhere else and they wouldn't warranty it. Had 2 radiators, both under warranty. Driver and passenger doors stick and won't open sometimes. God awful sound coming from front tire, like a rotation sound. Got belts replaced for serpentine and squeal really bad. I love the ride and the comfort, but the little stuff kills you.

Have owned our 2004 for almost 4 yrs. now. Have about 47,000 miles on it. It is built very well in terms of ride quality and noise. There have been two reliability issues, both of which were covered under warranty, a window motor and a speed sensor. The original tires were cheap garbage and lasted only about 40K. The best replacement is for them is the Yokohama's, a steal at about $100 each installed. The Yokohama's are rated for 80K. My only complaint with this vehicle is the gas mileage. We have averaged 17.7 MPG since new, and this is a mix of suburban and highway driving. It will get 25-26 MPG at 60-65 MPH, but only about 22-23 MPG at 75-80 MPH. Otherwise, safe, comfortable, reliable.

As a sworn minivan hater, I finally saw the light in 2004. I spend much of my time toting my two young kids around, and this van is perfect for the job. There is a mirror to view the backseat built into the car! The back windows can go down! The sliding doors can be controlled by me! The rear liftgate is also automatic and can be controlled by the driver! As a mom, these are amazing benefits that I didn't even know I was missing with my old SUV. Other than going through a few sets of tires, I have had NO problems with it. The ultimate Mom-mobile, I highly recommend it to those who spend a lot of time schlepping the kids.

This has probably been one of the most disappointing vehicles that I have ever owned (and I have owned a lot in the past 50 years). Gas mileage has been worse than my GMC V8 pickup, cruise control that downshifts on the slightest grade, run flat tires replaced at 12K, wheels replaced due to excessive pitting, lower control arm bushings worn out at 35K, front brakes worn out at 35K (most of this mileage is long freeway trips) . My greatest concern is with the Toyota tire pressure monitoring system that does not monitor tire pressure but monitors the change in circumference of the tires. This does not work with run flat tires because the tire walls do not distort even with 0# air pressure.

84,000 miles and counting. This has been a great car. So far (knock on wood) we've had no problems at all and no unscheduled repairs. INCREDIBLE!! Some cars can hardly make it that far. Although, wear and tear is definitely apparent. It's much louder (engine, road noise, and wind noise), rougher, and slower than when it was newer. Toyota has sent home a few recalls, including a rear seat belt and the power lift gate. The middle seats don't recline! That's probably the worst part about the car. We had a 91 dodge caravan and those seats were more comfortable. Heated seats are awesome. Leather has hardly worn. Overall a great family car with more than plenty room for seven and tons of stuff.

We bought this van when they were first released and we've had the feeling that Toyota was rushing to get them out to the dealerships. The driver side window fell off track and broke inside the door, the power door locked open and we had to cut the cable to get it closed, brakes and tires were replaced, and now the power steering needs repaired. Nothing has been covered under warranty or recall so far. We do wish we had held off and bought a Honda and may end up taking a loss and trading it in even though we had hoped to drive it for many more years.

Bought in May 2004. Back air conditioning control worked on and off. Needed new tires at 40,000 miles. Needed new tires again at 80,000, and new tires wore on front after only 15,000 miles, even after alignment. Brakes needed replacing at 50,000 and never worked right after. Transmission went out at 85,000 mi. and I got rid of the van. Was very disappointed with Toyota quality.

I have owned my Sienna for less than a year, yet have already discovered this van's virtues. It is very much the Camry of minivans: it is not a particularly exciting or involving vehicle to drive, but it gets you and 6 friends from point A to point B with little fuss. The drivetrain is refined and ride comfort is very good. All the vehicle's controls are simple to operate, and interior space is excellent. So far, I've averaged 9.5L/100km (25mpg) in mixed city/hwy driving, which is better than some 4cyl cars. I can't really comment on long-term reliability, but I haven't encountered any problems yet with the van. Overall, it's a very practical vehicle to own, albeit not a very inspiring one.

71000 miles. Handles great in snow with four 215/65/16 Mich Xice tires: backed 30 yards across a grass field covered in snow up to the bumpers and towed a pickup truck out that couldn't move on its own. Who needs AWD and the associated additional costs? Quiet on hwy, great for long trips. OE tires lasted 50K. Brakes serviced once. MPG >20 city, 24.5-27@75mph, hit 30mpg@60mph sustained with 7 people on board on one trip. Only unexpected repair: radiator leak, cost $800, was not on recall.

This has been a great vehicle. Even after 90000 miles it is tight and smooth. I enjoy the handling, tight turning radius, smooth Lexus-style and ride, great meileage, high-cube storage, rides level under heavy loads, excellent heat and A/C in all zones. It has never been in the shop other than for routine maintenance and the few factory recalls to correct issues that I would have never otherwise noticed. I appreciate all of the standard options, such as tilt/telescopic wheel, rear power passenger windows, 5-speed automatic transmission. My next Sienna will be the XLE with leather, sunroof, power lift-gate, back-up sensors, etc.

We're not aggressive or rough drivers, using a minivan for what it was intended, and we have followed all maintenance plans through local toyota dealer. Our experience has been miserable: First year, sliding doors rattled incessantly. Had to have door seals replaced (actually missing). 2nd year, catalytic converter went out, somehow causing traction control malfunction in snow storm. 3rd year: Power sliding door motor burned out. Out of warranty. Dealer provided parts, we paid for labor. Into 4th year now, cracked radiator, torn CV boots, intermittent/shorting rear heater controls. This is worse than the 1998 Dodge Caravan we traded in!!! Looking for something different now.

After owning a Toyota Tundra for a couple years, I decided I'd buy another Toyota. Unfortunately, the Sienna has had a bunch of problems. Our most recent problems involve poor build quality, including: 1. The lock mechanism on the rear door came apart because all of the screws fell out. 2. The inside door panel of the driver side door is partially disconnected from the door and gets stuck on the weather stripping when you try to open the door. The clips that hold the panel on are plastic and they broke easily. 3. The first set of tires wore out very quickly. 4. The first set of brakes wore out very quickly. 5. The battery goes dead after about 15 minutes if a door is left open.

Great van to roll the kids around in. Don't know why other people have issues with MPG? I ran this on Oahu traffic (bad) with 19 MPG and now up in the NW getting 22.1 avg. Step a little lighter on gas, it is powerfull for a van but not a race car, standard gas saving tips.... The OEM tires were awful and I did replace them @ 29K. Now up to 40K with no issues.

I love my Sienna, I carry everything but the kitchen sink in it. It is roomy and has made life easier for me and my 4 year old. My only disappointment is that I do not think it is fast enough when I have to enter the highway or pass someone. Also, outside noise is not filtered and the air conditioner is not strong enough. Could be because it's a big car. Not sure, but overall, I'm happy. Oh, it's also great on gas!

I've owned several Toyota vehicles and never had the troubles encountered with this vehicle. My primary complaint is that the AWD van came with Dunlop run flat tires. These wore out at about 11,000 miles. Toyota replaced the first set due to all the complaints with the premature tire wear wearing. The transmission has a mind of it's own. It hesitates at times (usually between 5-10 mph). It's been reprogrammed by the dealer one time thus far. Driver's side wind noise is problematic. We average about 17 mpg.

Only complaint now is the tire noise. Hated the Run Flats and replaced them at 19,000 which meant I had to buy a new wheel. Toyota refunded all my cost. Wish I could see better to back up, bought a $100 back up camera and fixed that prob. Middle row seats are heavy to remove and should fold flat into frame but are manageable as is. All in all I really like the car. The AWD is important to me as our driveway is steep and snow makes it hard to navigate. Passengers have told me middle row seats are uncomfortable with lump in low back.

I did like my Ford pickups, but it became difficult to get in and out of the back for me and my dogs. I use my vehicles for hunting, so ease of access is a prime consideration.

Not a lot of problems with our 2004 LE FWD. The passenger side power window motor did fail at around 20,000 miles. Replaced under warranty but did have to leave overnight for repair. Recently needed coolant sensor, thermostat and air/fuel sensor at 28,000 miles, but these were replaced in a day under warranty. The Dunlop tires wear out very quickly. Replacing them now at 28000 mi. with Yokohama Avid TRZs. Gas mileage is lower than expected, averaging 17.3 MPG over the past two and a half years, and that is almost all suburban and highway!

I have had incredible trouble changing a tire. The car fell off the jack and I can't get the tire gauge light to go off. It took my husband over a half hour to get the tire off the bottom of the car in the weird position it was in to unscrew it and get it under the car. If we had been on the side of the road when these flats happened, we would have been killed. Paint chips off the bumpers badly. My battery has died numerous times because of interior lights not auto turning off. All screws holding the flaps protecting motor over front time came out with flaps hitting wheels causing great scare. Toyota wouldn't replace because out of mile warranty (we had to evacuate to Dallas!).

We have had our Sienna for 3 years now. The van was purchased in lieu of an SUV when we found out we were having twins. Our oldest likes the third row single seat, while the twins take up the captains chairs in the middle. The split third row gives us a lot of flexibility in storage or an extra two seats when needed. We love the van and have had no issues/complaints with the reliability or quality. The only issue that has risen is the battery has died many times. Each time has had a cause, i.e. a light left on. However, I don't think one interior light should kill a battery. My 2002 Tundra has never had battery issues. It may be time to upgrade the battery.

A lot of technical / recall glitches. This van is in shop more than my old crummy Caravan. Love the luxury of the Limited. We are in process of trading 2004 Sienna in for the Toyota Sequoia.

Run Flat tires come standard on this vehicle. Unfortunately this is the worst type of option that toyota could put on this type vehicle. I already have changed the tires twice. I am on my third set of tires. Toyota is aware of the problem but apparently continues to retrofit even the current 2007-07 models with the run flat tires. The sienna awd xle can be equiped with conventional tires and a spare tire conversion kit but if the consumer opts for this it is at his expense and he loses the ability to fold down the third row seat.

I'll start off by saying I've always been a fan of Toyota. Until now. This Sienna performed great for 1 year, with the exception of fuel economy. It is not even close to the EPA estimate. The sliding side doors are difficult to close properly which caused the battery to die often. Electic windows broke 2x. 3-4 recalls in the first year. Then after the warranty -38k miles- the muffler broke and then the glove box door broke. My 100K mile extended warranty that I purchased for $1000 didn't cover either repair (fine print). I called Toyota and they were rude. Called it normal where and tear. Runs rough at 52k miles. I'm now trading it in. junk.

After 30k miles,I have a good feel for this van. Even with a bad back, I can drive 2400 miles in 5 days with absolute comfort. The nav system did give wrong info on 2 occasions. Hesitation, down shifting on the slightest grade (poor power), and poor city mileage (13-14 mpg) existed right from the beginning. I feel these problems are from the AWD powertrain requirements. Highway mpg=23-24mpg. Locally, overall mpg=16-17. The runflat tires lasted 20k and were almost bald. Avoid the AWD and you will be much happier.

As older drivers, comfort is of utmost importance. After driving for 8 hours we arrive without the normal stiffness. It is wonderful to handle and with the wonderful turning radius it will practically turn on a dime. Took a little practice parking as it handled a bit differently than the 1998. The auto doors work beautifully and makes it so easy to let guests into the van without getting in and out. The AC is great. I am a Toyota fan. I love the reliability and dependability that is standard with all Toyota products. Oh sure maybe it doesn't have all the trap doors but you won't see it by the side of the road dead.

This is my first Toyota purchase and it's not been a good experience. The van has had two recalls - one to put a tape on the doors because they are prone to rust? The other for a seat belt anchor. We also got a notice that the radiator is prone to leaking and that they would extend the warranty on it to 72K miles- little comfort to me. Also the power door on the passenger side and both heated seat elements have had to be replaced. In addition, the tires need replacement even though it gets many highway miles and the tires get rotated and balanced regularly.

I like nearly everything about the 2004 Sienna XLE we purchased except for the fact that the Battery has rundown at least 10 times over the 18 months that we've owned it for various reasons. E.g. children left interior lights on or door open. Extremely frustrating, and no Toyota fix available. For a van sold on all its family friendly features (which is mostly accurate) this was one major engineering oversight.

It has been to the dealer 9 times for regular maintainence , oil, lubes only. It is a first rate travelling vehicle, a great highway cruiser. Our next vehicle will be the XLE with leather, 17" wheels, sun-roof, laser cruise etc but no flat-free tires after reading the comments here. Even the LE comes very well equipped with items that others call options. We have enjoyed 72000km (45000 mi) with zero problems.

I'm a repeat Sienna owner. Leased a '97 and loved it. Bought a top-of- the-line '04 and wish I had leased it, so I can dump it. Navigation system stinks. It is disabled when car is in motion. Not even a passenger can plot a route without stopping (usually on the side of a busy highway!!) 'Run-flat' tires are sold as a feature. They wear out in 20K miles and cost 3X the price of conventionals. No spare brings up all sorts of safety problems. They are rated as 'Ultra High Performance All- Season'. What? On a minivan? Transmission shifts very poorly, particularly when downshifting then accelerating, as one does at yield signs, toll booths, etc.

Best MiniVan but could use improvement

We bought this new, just as they came out. What we like: excellent mechanicals, interior well thought out, laser cruise for long trips back east is fabulous, dual auto doors, and folding seats work as advertised, DVD works well. The only mechanical I am not overjoyed with is the brakes they are just OK. First toyota and I am disappointed with the paint quality, interior build is ok but not quite what I expected, and recalls have been more numerous than I expected. I would like to see a lesser tint on the back windows, as visibility is impaired. Mileage is fair at 17 overall, in retrospect I would have gotten the FWD version, no need for the AWD probably.

No Spare and Run Flats are Terrible!

I love the van in every other way except: If you buy the AWD, consider that run flats: 1) Only last 20-22K miles. 2) Cost $1300 to replace (you must replace all 4 tires at once). 3) THERE is no SPARE - so if you have a "side" blow out of the tire, you cannot drive the car! 4) The runflats are very heavy and add to road noise and poorer gas milage. 5) Run flats are very hard to get - must wait days to get them (thus, can't drive vehicle) THEY DON't TELL YOU THIS WHEN YOU BUY THE CAR. Most dealerships don't know much about what spare fits in the van. Most Sienna message boards talk about how it costs $6-800 for a spare that makes your rear folding seat not fold-able. Bye.

Oh what a bummer.....

I have had my Sienna (2004) for a little over one year. Already, I have had to replace the radiator, seatbelts, parts in the steering wheel, and have other problems the dealership just can't fix. I bought a Toyota for the reliability since I am on the road often with my kids. I am so sorry I did! I refuse to drive the car on long trips now. I've had it to the dealer four times in the past two months for repairs. The last time in, I had two pages worth of repairs/recalls on a one year old vehicle! I also have a sluggish take off which the dealer says is normal. The A/C doesn't blow cool when idle (traffic) for more than five minutes as well. Wish I had never bought this one.

We have 3 kids, so we decided to buy a minivan last year. We chose this Sienna because it had an 8 passenger option and rides smoother. Even after the new Odyssey came out, we still like the Sienna's looks better. The flexible seating has been great, swallowing various combinations of kids and stuff. Gas mileage is less than advertised, averaging 17 mpg, but we do almost all city driving and my wife and I are both leadfoots; our 300M got about the same and our Civic gets about 25, so that's not bad. Passing power is good on the highway and it's silky smooth ride is nice around our city's lousy streets. A keeper.

Love this van. Good looks, comfort and convenience. Needs a power hatch which is only available on the XLE model. We somehow manage 29 mpg on the freeway. Toyota needs to simplify their option packages and regional differences as they are WAY to confusing!!! Honda has it down right. We are uprading to an 05 XLE soon.

There are two serious design flaws that have proven very disappointing in what is otherwise a nice vehicle. 1. The A/C condenser is mounted right behind the front grill. It is exposed to rocks and other road hazzars. When a small rock passed through the grill openings and created a hole in the condenser, my repair cost was $790 not covered by warranty because the dealer considered it road hazzard damage not covered. 2. The accelerator extremely annoying on this van. It is sluggish through the first 1/2 of the travel range of the pedal. Then for a small portion of the pedal range, it is very jerky and extreme with weird transmission behaivor. The dealer declares it "normal".

So far, Toyota has replaced the radiator and fuel tank under recall as well as an electrical issue and a door seal issue. Under warranty the lift gate plungers were replaced after they outright broke off. Then, the A/C compressor had to be replaced because apparently some kind of road hazzard bounced up and put a hole in it. Poor design / positioning? I mean that's an expensive component to be left exposed to a rock on the interstate. N bolders out there. All in all, I bought a Toyota because of the reliability reputation and so far in 2 years it has been at the dealer a total of 9 days. That seems excessive in just two years.

While we love the van most of the time, we have had it in the shop way too many times (at least 8) in 20 months for non-routine items. There is a problem with the middle row passenger side seat belt that Toyota can't seem to fix after 5 visits, and the drivers side sliding door creaks (3 visits), as well as 3 recalls (some trips we had multiple things done). The build quality isn't what we had hoped for from Toyota.

My 1st experience with a Toyota minivan has been an exceptional experience. I selected the CE model based solely on economics (I'm one of those 'fixed-income' Seniors). The ride is luxury sedan-like; the horsepower is more responsive than I imagined it could be, the fit and trim is exceptional (no flaws could be detected, and I'm anal about detail!) the rear fold away seat is a great help to an old foggy and when it's up, my wife loves the convenience of storing the groceries back there in the well.

This minivan rides exceptionally smooth and has horsepower beyond belief. My wife that said she would never be caught dead in a minivan says now that she wouldn't trade it for the world. The van feels like something out of the Lexus line as far as quietness & structure. Everything in this van was carefully thought out from the armrest storage bins to the engine. I personally have not driven a car of this quality ever, and I've drive a lot of cars. Quick, quiet, and impressive.

Still have a 92 Previa. Sienna is much like it only quieter and more power. Comfortable ride and good inside features. No mechanical problems. Excellent room for tall people. Great cargo space. FWD needs studed snow tires for going up hills in snow/ice conditions. 4 wheel drive works better. Good value for your money. Son used it for a special driving course and it handled just great in quick tight turns.

Great features not found on previous models. Safety is also upgraded. Interior is stylish and flexible. Toyota quality is why we chose this minivan, however, that quality is not present in their "fly-by-wire" throttle. It turns out that the computer controlled throttle (not cable)often causes hesitation. This is a common problem with Toyota and they have attempted to remedy this via a programming "patch". What they call "Normal Operation" is what we and many other Toyota owners of this newer technology are stuck with.

Wow, we really love this van. We tow a 3500 pound boat, have 2 kids, and 3 dogs and this is exactly the vehicle we need. We ordered it (waited 4 months) in 2003 and took delivery in March. The all wheel drive is incredible. When I pulled out boat out this year people with f-150 pickups were slipping (2wd) but my awd sienna just pulled out the boat with no problems. I know most folks wont pull a boat with a minivan - but with 230 hp you can with ease. We of course have had nooo problems with this van. We traded in a 2000 odyssey on this van an it is a big upgrade. The interior is soo plush. I drive a lexus and I like this van better (wife drives the van).

Overall a fantastic van. Chose between the 2005 Odyssey and the 2005 Sienna - the Odyssey was great but we needed the 8 seats and weren't willing to pay the extra Honda was asking. The only reason I would recommend the Honda over the Sienna is the standard stability control and the standard side airbags which are a big deal for us. The need for 8 real seats was the tie breaker for us. The Honda handles and is more fun to drive but the Sienna is no slouch either. All things being equal, the Toyota represented better overall value and suited our needs better.

I never thought I'd ever write a review about a minivan, much less a good review. I'm pretty sure I'm still a car guy, so it must be a great vehicle. (It is.) The Sienna has incredible storage options, decent power, good handling, good looks, nice ride, and is just an all around great buy. Headlights cast a great illumination path. It did a great job in a snowstorm in NY. We've only had a couple of minor trim problems, and a mysterious and now vanished engine ping. (I don't know why, by the way, that Edmunds has only got a best fuel mileage of 19mpg on their long-termer. We usually get around 25-28 on the highway, and that is at extra-legal speeds.)

The dealership was polite and not pushy, and the service department (for scheduled maintenance) has been, too. There are a few improvements I would like to see, but we are enjoying the Sienna very much.Our long-distance trips have been trouble-free, and pretty much argument-free, too, with the kids' independent sound systems!

I had owned a top of the line Grand Caravan with little or no problems. But when it was time to replace it so many people said to look at the Sienna before buying another minivan. What a pleasant surprise! I had been used to the luxury of the Grand Caravan EX and wanted no less in my new vehicle. The amenities in the Sienna surpass what I had in the Grand Caravan. (both had leather interiors) The ride and handling of the Sienna is far superior. The absolute selling feature was the windows that went down on the side sliding doors and the huge sunroof.

We've had our van 2 months now. We are still smiling at each other and saying "we love it". Stepping up from a CR-V, this vehicle is in another league. The comfort and seat arrangement are an order of magnitude better. It's very roomy. Our 2-year- old likes to ride in the back seat, so we leave the captain seat in front of him tilted forward for easy access to the back. The infant rides in the captain seat that we positioned near the center of the 2nd row. This is a very solid vehicle... you can tell by the weight of the doors and the force needed to close them.

We just had our first baby - now six months old. Have VW Passat wagon but even it fills up quickly when we travel (stroller, crib, suitcases, coolor, kitchen sink - you get the idea!). Anyway, we just needed more space and ride quality. The wife was anti- minivan at first but changed after test driving. We checked them all out. My criteria was quiet, smooth ride, and reliability. Sienna beat all others hands down, in our opinion. We also considered Lexus RX330 but was just too small and a bit too expensive (but a totally cool car). The Sienna is a Lexus with a Toyota label. The ride is smooth and quiet. Gas mileage started out bad but now (after 1500 miles) we get 25 mpg hwy.

My 2004 does not ride as smooth as my 2001 Town & Country, is is much noiser inside and not as good fuel milage. It also lacks many of the luxury features such as Pasenger power seat and memory seat. When using Cruise it seems to always downshift on slight grades which I believe accounts for the milage problem

Terrible intown mileage. Has 1800 miles on it now - hope better later. It gets around 13to14mpg. Hope for 17 on highway. Like to drive in traffic because sits higher and large windows. Has bigger tires, so running board helps getting in. Three adults have sit in the back, but wouldn't want to take a long trip. Sitting like this is ok just going around town. Still getting used to the satillite cruse control. Think will be better when feel more confident using it. Like having the regular cruise to choose when want.

This is my second Sienna. This is the best van I have ever owned. The ride and handeling are excellent. The ease of changing the seats is great. You no longe have to remove the rear seats. I was supprised when I was able to put 10 foot lumber in the van and close the tail gate. The fit and finish is excellent. I'm looking forward to many years of trouble free driving.

We are extremely pleased w/ our purchase! I can't believe how quiet and smooth the ride is. Though the horsepower is allegedly lower than competition, this engine has plenty of get-up-and-go. We love the "fold-flat- into-floor" backseat; it adjusts at the simple pull of a strap. The convenience of the movable 2nd row captain chairs provide an added sense of security by allowing us to put our 2- yr old closer to the center of the vehicle. This also allows him a better view of the portable DVD we carry wherever we go. My wife loves the fact that on rainy days, she can get all the way to the back row w/out exiting the vehicle. Would recommend to anyone!

I never thought that I would be saying that, but it's true. I love the way the minivan drives - smooth, excellent pick-up, and comfortable. Lots of storage - our double stroller easily fits in the back. Getting my daughters into their car seats is easy and I love being able to move the seats closer so that the front passenger can feed my infant daughter if necessary. The gas mileage has been great, particularly since we are putting more city miles than highway on. The split third row will come in handy when we travel to Yosemite with a friend, two pack-n-plays, the double stroller, back packs, luggage, and wedding gifts. I don't miss my car one bit.

As a new parent I dreaded the day of getting the "soccer vehicle" however since getting the Sienna I have had nothing but compliments from all of my friends and the ones who pick on me for having a van ride in it one time and then say nothing but great things about it. Very roomy and after comparing it to the Honda 2004, you know the one, I was amazed at the difference. The leather is much nicer along with the ride from the back seats.

After test driving the '04 Odyssey, Mazda MPV, Nissan Quest I knew I wanted the Totyota Sienna, this car is extremely quiet, plenty of power, lots of storage and compartments, mine has the standard 6 speaker stereo and the no7 package. The fit and finish inside is impeccable, this is the first Toyota I've owned and I will probably be a customer for life, average fuel mileage in town is around 22 to 24 mpg. according to the tripcomputer. Highly recommend this car! It truly drives like a Lexus, with the storage of a u-haul.

I have many friends that have a 2004 and they love theirs too. I drove all the minivans, The honda was very low like a car, and the power is ok, The Caravan is overpriced for the quality.

Having never owned a minivan, my wife and I were new to the market. We narrowed it down to the Honda or the Toyo. After driving both, my wife was sold on the Sienna. The Toyota dealer was laid back, very little pressue and listened to what we wanted. The Honda dealer was very aggressive, "how can I put you in a Honda today". The 60/40 back seat and the ability to open/close the back seat with one hand on the Toyota was a major plus. We had no problem paying a little more for the Toyota when we plan to have the van for 7-8 years. Bottom Line: It is the best van on the road.

I purchased this minivan because of its' ride and 4 wheel drive. Honda could not match either requirement. The support has been quite good, but I am displeased with the lack of power/response both in city and on the road. The city gas milage is 13 mpg and I get 21 on the road. The car keeps down shifting out of 5th gear every time I reach a mild grade when the car is set at 70 mph. Very annoying! This does not happen at 63 mph, so it is related to a lack of power. If I maintain 63 mph, the mpg goes up to 22-23 mpg. However, the turnpike speed is 65. I suspect the decreased power is related to the AWD and probably is bette

After looking for a LONG time at different reviews, it came down to the Nissan Quest and Toyota Sienna. The reviews that I have read of the Toyota made the difference. The MPV was too small and slow off the line, and there are no Honda dealers close. That is why the toyota and Quest were chosen. Looking at the reviews, the only negatives for the Toyota were small where as some of the Nissan were larger in scope. The Nissan actually has a better "base" package than the CE, and I could have saved about $20 a month too. But in the end, we chose the Toyota.

After much thinking, we bought the Sienna over the 4-Runner. A 2 year old and an infant, we needed more room. This is my first foreign vehicle and it is absolutly amazing! Looked at its competition (Honda and Nissan) and the Toyota won hands down. Dealer was great, although they didn't have the one we wanted they were able to get one within a week and were realistic with price. This van (like so many others I swore I would nerver buy a Minivan!) has everything we could ever want plus some. The leather is unbelievably comfortable, 3 zone climate, automatic side and rear doors. Go drive it and you won't be disappointed!

I was so excited to get this car after ten years with my Nissan Quest. But, despite some fabulous features, like the rear seats that fold flush with the floor and the great fuel economy, I am trading it in this weekend. The automatically locking doors that can't be disarmed even tho the dealer said they could, the keys that can't be copied at a hardware store--you have to go to the dealer and pay $100 for a NON- REMOTE key, the hubcaps that keep popping off, the rear hatch that has no place to open manually--you must do it from the front doors or the remote key, which we lost and I will NOT pay $300 to replace--just a few of the things that tick me off.

It handles better, rides better, and seems to be a better built van than the Chrysler. If you are looking at purhasing a van, do yourself a favor and test drive the Toyota, I am glad we did.

This is our 2nd Sienna. We really like the additional features to this re- designed model, such as the right sliding passenger door, the tons of cup holders, the great rear row fold down (my husband was developing muscles from pulling the seats in and out from the rear with our last Sienna), our 8th passenger seat in the 2nd row is a really plus (my son, age 5, sits in the middle smaller seat and his dad and grandma can sit on either side of him so we can keep the 3rd row of seats down for more trunk space), and the turn ratio is much better (I noticed my U-turns are tighter). Definite improvement and I paid less for this car than our last car.

After years of Dodge, Chrysler, Ford, and Chevrolet minivans, I've finally found a quality van in the 2004 Toyota Sienna. Not only is the van a beauty on the inside and out, but driving it is actually enjoyable. It handles like a dream around corners without that sensation that you might flip or lose control of the vehicle. The power is there when you need it without that awful lag in acceleration common to other vans I've driven. The seating is comfortable and the thoughtful placement of storage and cup holders throughout the vehicle adds to the overall pleasure of this vehicle. The rear folding seats are incredibly easy to do even with one hand.

I swear, the Sienna doesn't drive, it levitates. Complete with DVD player, our new LE 8 passenger handles my three teenagers and a friend for each without flinching. Now having an 8 passenger vehicle means that Mom gets to bring a friend along too! Even the dogs love it and have plenty of room. Three cheers to Toyota for creating such a masterpiece!

I previously had a 2001 Sienna LE. I decided to get the 2004 Sienna loaded, and I'm really happy I did. I love it. I never wanted a minivan, but this is my third one and is the best by far. It has everything I could want, except saved settings for the power seat and a power front passenger seat. Before I bought this one I looked at Odyssey--their back seat is the original that folds flush with the floor--but it's all or none. The Sienna back seat is split 60/40. That way you can fold it without losing all of the seating in the back. Chrysler Town and Country has middle row seats that fold into the floor. But it wasn't as luxurious.

We are approaching the one year mark with our new Sienna and this vehicle is unbelievable! It tows our 3500 lb boat as well as our Durango did, but gets almost twice the gas mileage and has much more room. A high quality vehicle with a lower MSRP, operating and insurance costs!

Fourth minivan we have owned and this is our favorite. We do not feel that we have given up "creature comforts" for the space in the van. Pleasant ride and enough power to handle situations in city driving. DVD, seat warmers, auto temp. control, many cupholders, seat configuration, storage room,back seat windows that open, and stereo system all add to the pleasure.

My major complaint is an unfortunate lack of power when de-accelerating. For example when slowing down from a highway off-ramp to take a right turn. If you do not come to a complete stop, the transmission does not kick down and you get no acceleration till you stomp on the gas pedal. It is a bit scary when you are tryng to beat on-coming traffic. With the added cargo space in the back, filling up the van with 8 passengers and luggage taxes the rear suspension and driving is not too pleasureable!

My dealer was excellent and I shopped around to several stores, but this was the best experience and would highly recommend the van and the dealer...but shop the other dealers first and great the best experience in Lincoln!

Our family bought the Toyota based on their reputation for quality and reliability. Big mistake. We have owned the car for about a year and a half and have had to have the power door replaced( 3 weeks in, and 2 rental cars), the gas tank replaced, along with numerous trim peices, and lots of rattles. The transmission also hesitates a moment between gears(2 other Toyotas I've driven do this also). The good things: the power, the MPG(25 @80 MPH), the turning radius, and the DEEP cargo well in back. Finally: do your research, and beware of the salesman. We got ripped off at the dealer. PEOPLE BUY TOYOTAS FOR THIS?

Very satisfied buyer

After 6 months of daily research I finally have my Sienna LE 8 passenger with option package #6. It is all I hoped for minus the few quirks listed below. Its layout is very well thought out and practical. The ride is very quiet and stable. The turning radius is fantastic and body roll is minimal. 2 long car trips so far were very comfortable for all passengers. Only wish they had put armrests on second row ends. The interior is very spacious. We were able to put 3 child carseats easily across the second row. Overall, I find this van almost perfect when it comes to fitting our needs with 3 kids.

With two children and a baby on the way, it was time to move into a minivan. My oldest child gets carsick, so that immediately limited the field to the MPV and the Sienna for the side roll-down windows. The Sienna won out for it's large size, extra features, extra seating room, ride, and value. I have no idea how I made it so long without a minivan, and I highly recommend this vehicle to anyone and everyone.

We now have about 8000 mies on our Sienna CE. It has a comfortable ride and the kids love the vehicle. The tiny turning radius is a great feature, as is the split folding rear seats. Handling is rubbery and vague, the transmission is slightly jerky and abrupt, and the front seat comfort for me (about 200 lbs) is poor due to overly spongy cushioning. The soft seats work great for the kids though. Gas mileage has averaged around 20 mpg, which has included pure city driving as well as high speed interstate cruising with a laden roof rack.

THE NON ADJUSTABLE STEERING WHEEL, OTHER THAN TELESCOPING FEATURE IS NOT AS COMFROTABLE AS THE CHRYSLER LIMITED VAN THAT I OWNED PREVIOUSLY. THE NON MEMORY DRIVER SEAT AND MIRRORS IS ALSO A DRAWBACK. THE POWER FROM THE 3.3 ENGINE DOES NOT HAVE THE POWER EXPECTED WHEN DRIVING IN MOUNTIANS OR HILLS WHEN THE VEHICLE IS IN CRUISE CONTROL--IT CONTINUES TO DOWNSHIFT WHICH MAKES THE RIDE QUITE UNEASY. DEALER HAS NO ANSWER FOR THIS PROBLEM.

OK, so we only have 4000 miles so far on the van, but they have been great miles. This is our first van, so we really did our due diligence in shopping around; naturally we kept coming back to the Sienna. I am an automotive technician (ASE Undercar) so I know how reliable Toyotas are. The 2004 Sienna does not disappoint.

I just bought the new Sienna over the weekend and it far out values the Odyssey. It is much more solid and it also has many more nice appoinments than the plain jane odyssey. Honda needs to re-do if they want to not loose market share on the Mini van market. It rides great and handles well. Nice Job Toyota !

Everything has been exceptional with our 2004 Sienna except for rust. We have had two bouts of premature rust within 6 months (even with Sym-tech). Rust was found on, and around doors. Comfort, handling, fuel economy have been beyond our expectations. Recently getting 35+ mpg. Rear seat and sliding with windows are excellent.

The CE model is the hidden jewel of the pack. Why pay for power doors if you don't need them. Option package #3 gives you nearly evry new feature available, including airbag curtain, traction control, roof rack, daytime running lights, and stability control, and the van comes in under $26,000. You get the exact same engine and transmission as the top of the line Sienna, which costs over $40,000. The seats are comfortable, but advise fabric protection if you have messy passengers (kids).

All things said the Sienna has loads of space and drives well for a van. One gripe - fold flat rear seat is a big deal, so much so that other auto companies have discontinued their AWD models to add the well. It looked like Toyota had solved this problem. Not really - Run flat tires - no spare. This was not mentioned by the dealer. The vehicle even has a sticker displaying how to remove the spare, except there is none.

The car is a quiet, safe, reliable, very comfortable vehicle,however, advertising it as having a "towing package" is disengenuous at best. The hitch is barely 8" above the pavement. With no trailer attached and four people aboard, the receiver contacted the pavement when exiting my garage and had to be removed. The worst part is that Toyota seems to be in denial. In answer to my questions about trailer towing, they send me copies of the owners manual. Not at all what I expected from a world class company! The car also downshifts on the slightest grade. The transmission is smooth, so it isn't too noticable, but for 230 horsepower?

Purchased our van in April and have 3400 miles on it so far. Everything seems to be working well. Ride is smooth I think it is better then the Subaru Outback that we traded in. It has more of a car like feel to it then the Honda van. Gas mileage is not bad for such a large vehicle....not sure you can find a SUV with better gas mileage. Does well in the mountain region...climbs large hills and turns tight curves very well for me! Capacity for us is great! It carries two infant car seats, one dog and two adults very comfortably. If your over 6 foot you may not like the back row for leg room. I highly recommend this van if you need more room!

I am what most consider a loyal Toyota owner, having owned over 5 Toyotas. All of which I have driven over 200,000 miles a piece. My second car, which I still own, is a Camry with 354,000 miles and still looks/runs like new. This is the main reason for our selection of the Sienna as reliability and quality is of utmost importance to us. Atlas, Sienna did not disappoint us! After 30,000 miles with two trips to Florida, and uncountable trips to NY, some of which included towing a trailer....it has convinced me that I made a wise decision once again to purchase a Toyota for my growing family. In addition, the dealer treats me as if I am king!

Great car for travel as we winter in Florida and take short trips in summer.

Good acceleration when needed and much better vision through all windows.

I have bought new cars since my first (a Ford Mustang) in 1963. The Toyota Sienna is the FIRST car I ever loved so much that I bought a second! It is the safest, most comfortable and yes, even the most enjoyable car to drive I've ever owned. I have an entertainment center, AWD, "run-flat" tires, a rear- view camera, and a navigation system all of which gives me a sense of security I've never known before. I LOVE THIS CAR!!!

To back up in this beautiful van is quite challenging because your view is non existent UNLESS you have the sensor things on the XLE model. The rear hatch is too heavy. OVERALL I LOVE THIS VAN!

There must be a half a dozen other owners at the dealership having the same, and more, serious quality and reliability problems like myself. I'll never buy another Toyota!.

I purchased a 2004 Sienna LXE Limited AWD with GPS in Winter Haven, Florida and have just completed a 5,000 mile drive across the United States and Canada. The vehicle performed flawlessly. The 2002 Sienna LXE is not only the most utilitarian vehicle I have ever owned, it is also the most luxurious. That is an incredible combination. I haven't been so excited about the purchase of a new car in the past fifty years, even though I've owned a number of Cadillacs and Mercedes.

This is the ultimate minivan--no doubt about it. I would consider our model (XLE Limited) the true Lexus of the minivans. It has all the comforts of a luxury car with the people room and cargo capacity of a van.

The separate front and rear climate control air conditioning is wonderful. There is plenty of power for my kind of driving. The car can be switched to haul things or people in the blink of an eye. All our senior citizen friends seem to get in and out of this car with much less effort then when we use our second car, a Camry sedan. I have recommended this car to all that will listen.

Great minivan with lots of safety features for the family. We really like the power sliding door and power hatch. We use the moonroof all the time and the folding down back row seat is a true "space-maker" The tight turning radius beats most of the other minivans at the school parking lot and lots of extra zip for passing /avoiding trouble on the freeway. The AWD is a superb performer and the reason to buy the car and the side airbags bring peace of mind.

We've had our Sienna for a month and noticed rough shifting shortly after bringing the car home. I didn't believe my wife when she mentioned it, but after driving it myself it wa clear this was not normal. I took it to our dealership and got the typical "I can't imagine there is anything wrong with your new van, the computer must be learning how you drive." He drove it, agreed with me. It is in their shop presently, he thought they would just hook it up to the diagnostic machine and tweek the computer and it would be back to normal...I had to call them and they told me they can't fix the problem and they are replacing the transmission.

I highly recommend the Sienna, we've had it a year and absolutely love it. We purchased the limited with Nav and the high tech features are still wowing me every time I drive the car. The price was a bit more than we wanted to spend, but it's worth every penny. The sonar on the limited is a must, we use it all the time, and toyota navigation is more impressive than the Honda's and Nissan's I've seen.

The Sienna is simply the best Minivan out there as I shopped for a Sienna and an Odyessey. It was close but we are so happy with the Sienna. Unfortunately, our buying experience was not a pleasant one at our local Toyota Dealer but we bought the Sienna in spite of the typical challenging buying experience at a Toyota dealer.

I've had my van for 3 weeks now and couldn't be more happy. We also have a 50K BMW and the van is much more comfortable. It's a bit pricy but I drove every other mini van on the market and the Toyota is better by far. If luxery and comfort is what you are looking for, look no furhter.

The redesigned sienna is an excelent famaily vehicle, in the past we always drove my 2002 tahoe rather than my wife's 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan that has changed with the Sienna. The Sienna drives better and has more room than the Caravan Its a bit pricy but in the long run its worth a few thousand more for the extra room comport and safty features.

I have had constant problems with mine. Like another reviewer, my sliding door fell off the track also and the window EXPLODED!. Toyota had it for a week, and now it sounds like I'm dragging a shovel everytime I open it. We also have had problems with the dash lights going off. It is quite dangerous at night. Twice it ahs stalled when I was picking up my children. We had a Caravan with no problems. TOYOTA can ROT IN HELL for all I'm concerned. I'm buying another Caravan

My wife has a lung problem. Which means I have to carry oxygen tanks when ever we go out in the van. With the two rear seats hidden flush to the floor it gives me room for her wheel chair and extra tanks plus room for what ever else I need to carry. I am so pleased with the dash, I don't have to bend my head in order to read the different gages that are usually blocked by the steering wheel.

Drove my Ford Aerostar for 14 years and 250,000 miles. Replaced it with the Sienna and I love it. Plan to drive this one even longer. Epitome of style and comfort. Transitions from a luxury ride for a night out with guests, to a workhorse - loaded down with suitcases and dog equipment and pulling a trailer filled with everything needed to put on a field trial 500 miles away.

This is our second sienna, and we will probably buy a third one. We are in love with the van. It is so much easier to get in and out of than a car, and the ride is as smooth. It handles very well. They are more expensive and the packages are not as good as some of the other vans. You pay dearly for all of the gingerbread features.

With the need to carry eight people, and not wanting a gas guzzling SUV, the Sienna was one of two choices. Great vehicle, tons of space, tons of power, and EXCELLENT fuel economy (25 MPG @ 80MPH), and tight turning radius. The versitility is unbelievable. The build quality of our vehicle is questionable. The dash is misaligned, as is the rear bumper. The van has also went into the dealer at least six times in the first year, for minor problems. Versions currently on dealer lots should be fine, but check carefully. FInally, WATCH THE SALESMAN AT THE DEALER!!! We were riped off.

We have had continued problems with our 04 Sienna and are very disappointed. We have had the gas tank replaced twice and the radiator replaced once. The van fails to accerlerate at times in very dangerous situations. We like the styling of the van but would be hesitant to recommend. This is our 2nd try with Toyota. Our 1st was with an 01 Sienna which incurred engine gelling. We thought Toyota was supposed to represent quality (?)

We have had defective:seatbelts, radiator,shock,12Vplug,& brake pads, and a catastrophe with sliding door. The door motor is flawed and allows you to open the door faster than the motor can retract the cable. The slacked cable derails the door. OUR DOOR FELL OFF almost entirely and the rear window glass shattered. Toyota took weeks to fix it, now the door does not always function properly.Toyota refuses to fix it (opens inconsistenly, retracts inconsistently) since they can't "reproduce the problem" in the shop.

I didn't think that I would like a mini van, but I was wrong. We traded our Lexus RX300 for the Sienna. It is much more comfortable, better gas mileage and all the conveniences of home. It is very kid friendly. With the back seats up you can transport 2 strollers, plenty of room for 2 car seats and more people. We packed a stroller and suitcases for 5 people in the back and had 6 people up front with no crowding. More cup and bottle holders than you need and the DVD player is a real plus. Definitely a car worth keeping around with a growing family.

Noticed my mileage is less than 20 mpg on mostly hwy driving while a friend's 2004 XLE is getting 25.9 on his computer. Based on actual fillups so far the computer mileage is pretty accurate. Also seems to be some engine hesitation when trying to accel at low speeds..need to push the pedal fully to get the engine to respond. Anyone else notice this?

Folding down the seats in the rear has taken some getting used to. Not as convenient as some I've seen.

Now we can actually have more than our family of 5 travel in the car (all kids are in carseats/boosters). Love the quiet, smooth ride, the layout, the fact it's a Toyota, and the fuel economy. People at Toyota are wonderful, this was my number one pick when researching new vans. Definitely love the new design over the older, smaller body style. We look forward to growing old together!

My husband and I are new to the Toyota line, but we've had a number of other minivans as comparisons. The Toyota Sienna is a great vehicle...comfort, style and performance. The only thing that all minivans need to improve is their fuel economy, but even there the Sienna tops the other Makes/Models we've had in the past. My primary reason for buying a Sienna was its impressive crash-test ratings as well as its Toyota durability. Thusfar we are pleased to "get the Toyota feeling!"

At the "high end" you can't go wrong with either this, Odyssey, Quest, or MPV; they all have MORE pluses than minuses, but I'm happy with our choice. Good ride and performance, great safety features, and a decent price matched w/Toyota reliability, what more can a "soccer dad" ask for!

We have only had our Sienna for a month. We still have our 1992 Previa, which we've been really happy with. My sister purchased a 2000 Sienna, but we have held off since the last-generation Sienna was (at least subjectively) smaller than the Previa. The new (2003/2004) Sienna feels larger than either the old Sienna or Previa. The power of the 240 hp Sienna feels much more adequate than the 140 Previa. It seems to be built with the expected Toyota quality. Overall, we're very pleased.

They aren't kidding when talking about a Lexus-like interior. It is so smooth, build quality is superb, and it can carry large loads while keeping the second row intact with our 2 year old there. I actually like driving the thing. Complaints: I am tall. The seat bottoms are short and I find the end of the seat meets the middle of my thigh and my feet go numb if I don't move around. Also, to remove the second row, the seats are large even when folded, and weigh an ungainly 49 pounds, and it can be a challenege to lift them out without killing your back since it is an odd angle to lift them out. Otherwise, an excellent choice.

We've had our Sienna about a month, and just got back from a 2000 mile trip - very comfortable, no problems. Gas mileage is less than toyota estimates (21-22 HWY), but should get better as engine ages, I hope. I find it very odd, and not just a little annoying, that the steering wheel is not centered over the display panel. Why not? Didn't notice when test driving. Otherwise, a great car.

Outstanding in every way. Legendary Toyota quality and reliability in a high performaning and comfortable vehicle. We upgraded to this van having driven a 1994 Dodge Grand Caravan LE for 10 years. We narrowed our choices to Sienna, Odyssey, and Caravan, and the Sienna won hands down. Great ride, short turn radius, very manuverable, and sytlish. We chose the desert sand mica because it does not show the dirt.

We had a 2000 Ford Windstar with only 33,000 miles on it and already, it was starting to make noise and have complications. We bought the 2004 Sienna because finally, Toyota, reliable, trusted name in our books made a van that was roomy and comfortable. We love the self storing seats, the great handling and smooth drive. As long as they stay this size, I may never buy another brand of minivan!

I am in shock that toyota would sell a car that has rattling problems and would take so long to admit the problems and fix them. It's a great minivan, unexpectedly good mileage, excellent handling and pickup, really a great design. But some of the materials are really cheap (plastic stuff) and the doors and second row passenger side seat rattle to no end. Perhaps toyota will fix it - if they don't I'm going to go crazy for spending $32k on a car that has rattles at 4000 miles.

Attracted to this vehicle because of its safety features, smart design elements and its impressive record of performance. Consumer reviews and editor ratings convinced me to place it high on our wish list. Comparatively, this van combines sound family comfort with safe, practicality, but the price tag is inflated. The fully loaded XLE LMTD is difficult to come by or so 'they' say. Having paid much more than the MSRP sticker price we'll expect and will demand premium customer service benefits from our 'thirsty' Toyota dealership.

First, I had to have the motor on the side door replaced. It took the local dealership 3 tries to fix, and they kept my car each time, refusing to pay for a rental. In addition, I was not aware that the AWD does not come with a spare tire, or a place to store a spare tire. I had a flat tire on a "run-flat"tire that was defective, and was not able to drive the car. I had to have the car towed to Toyota, where it took them 2 days to get a new tire. They would not cover any of the costs of towing, replacement, or car rental. In addition, all handbooks show this car with a spare. Buyer beware...it appears it is truly Toyota "Cutomer....No Service!"

The Sienna has very light and carlike ride it so easy to operate and is very comfortable to drive and to sit in as for the members of a family. For long rides and for just simple shopping the sienna has a lot of storage options. The engine is very quiet and smooth and handling is superb. The main thing is the fuel consumption as with the v6 engine may run in the city at 14mpg and in the hiway at 19-24mpg. Still enjoy the ride and the driving comfort when you buy a sienna

After driving a '98 for 5 years I was used to the quality. Our 5th Toyota vehicle. I was a little concerned about the gear shift position but now I just love it. The turning radius is awesome but a bit of getting used to. The auto doors are a boon for older people or short and I fall into both catagories. I will probably always have a Toyota.

I am afraid my expectations from this van are not becoming a reality. It's been back twice for the passenger door adjustment. The "door ajar" light would stay on when the door was closed. This caused the interior lights to stay on all night. There is a slight ticking in the engine that almost sounds like a valve ticking but the dealer said it is normal. Now the most concerning problem just started and that's the transmission clunks really hard when you almost come to a stop but then take off again. It's also done it a couple of times in stop and go traffic when it downshifts. So this means another trip back to the dealer. I suspect the worse.

We needed something larger. So the best option was a minivan based on pricing, gas mileage, and how versatile they are with children.I went a discovered the 2004 Sienna and the first impression I had was WOW! that is a really sleek looking minivan. And once I got inside anddiscovered everything it had to offer I fell in love with it went and purchased one. I love my van and would recommend it to anyone. It is like no other minivan in its class. Toyota really out did themselves this time!

Fell in love with this XLE and worked out a deal for our '97 Venture with only 47,000 miles (barely squeezed some value out of the dealer for it). Wow is this a great riding family van. It's a shame the dealer knows so little about it, gave us wrong information left and right, but this car has alot more than we could have ever asked for.

I have thoroughly enjoyed driving and owning my Toyota Sienna. When you climb inside, the space is cavernous. I have four children and a dog. We all ride comfortably. We also have the rear entertainment system and six CD changer. This is the first Toyota product I have ever purchased. But based on the performance, ratings, and quality thus far, it will not be the last time we purchase a Toyota product.

I have been completely thrilled with this vehicle. It is everything I was looking for: practical, spacious, comfortable, quiet, reliable, convenient. The engine provides plenty of power. Climate controls allow you to forget about managing the interior. All the controls and systems are easy to deploy/utilize. My only complaint is that the radio controls are a long stretch if you are changing radio stations, CDs, etc. (although there are volume controls on the steering wheel). If you're in the market for a minivan, check out the Sienna.

We bought an LE after extensive research. We considered SUV's with 3 rows. We are used to driving Volvo's. We ranked buying preferences as follows: Safety #1, reliability/build quality #2, resale #3, fuel consumption #4. The SUV's are only safer than a Sienna with a #7 safety package in a scant few unlikely scenarios and are less safe in many more. This has the build quality of a Lexus. With stability control and 3 row side curtain air-bags and the roster of other safety features we optioned for this is only slightly less safe than a Volvo XC90, which is 15k more and less spacious with 3rd row seating that is for only very small children.

This van is just about perfect. We've had four other minivans (one GM and three Dodges) and this one seems to have all the amenities of the others, and then some. If you can get beyond the unique exterior look, the inside of the van is as functional as they come. Storage is abundant-dual glovebox, under front passenger seat, base of center console, door pockets. Whisper quiet ride compared to the competition, and nicely equipped trim packages. Our LE was priced similarly to the Honda Odyessy LX, but was similarly equipped to a more expensive Odyessy EX, minus the power drivers seat.

It's no exaggeration to say this, our first minivan, has improved our quality of everyday life. It's well worth the price, even at MSRP. We looked closely at all the new models, and the Sienna fit our needs more comprehensively than any other. The Nissan was cute, the Honda functional ... but the Sienna combined the best of all worlds.

After seven years with a Pontiac Transport, a capable performer, we switched to the Sienna, our first "foreign" car. Not a bad deal when you can get the top-ranked vehicle in its class for less than the GM nameplates and only $700 over invoice. It rides like a car, has a solid feel throughout, and has features that appeal to every member of our family. Forget the DVD system; add your own portable player for about $200!

Owned 97 Caravan (110,000 miles), toss of a coin between this or the Odyssey. Newer Chryslers had to much plastic. Got caught up in the Toyota hype. Have 4000 miles, 3000 from recent vacation trip. Hopefully the reliability will overcome the disillusion I currently have. The issues maynot effect shorter drivers as much (6'2"). It may have more cubic feet but not as practical or useable as my Caravan (with the exception of the fold down seats). Not stable in high winds or near large trucks traveling at interstate speeds. Alignment scheduled!!

Due to the safety ratings on this vehicle, we had planned to get it before the test drive. What a pleasant surprise. This mini van is as close to perfect as you can get. Everything is convenient. All buttons are within easy reach of the driver and passenger and rear controls are easy enough for my 5 year old to function. The kids love the DVD player, and I love the Navigation system.

I was a loyal Dodge Grand Caravan owner. I was about to trade in Caravan number two on Caravan number three, but the new Sienna caught my eye. I am so glad it did! It is sooo much better at everything it does! It is comfortable, it handles smoothly. It is easy to park - even in tight spaces. It has the first cruise control that I have ever seen maintain the set speed - even driving through the Smokies. The best part of this minivan is that it is fun to drive - it doesn't feel like I'm driving a "Mommy-mobile." When people ask me about it I tell them "This isn't a minivan - it's a sports car that seats seven."

It really did not take long to realize that, when we (my wife and I) compaired other 6 and seven passanger mini-vans to the Sienna, this would be the easy choice. What made it even easier was how helpful the folks were at the dealership... (of course). When we compaired features with cost, again, it was an easy choice.

The '04 Sienna is ideal for running to the store, picking up kids or driving to Disney World. Why people drive around on paved roads in 15 MPG SUVs is puzzling. I was guilty myself. But without a boat or horse trailer to pull, a minivan makes more sense. After owning various minivans, studying current options and test drives, I found the Sienna more solid and appealing inside than the Honda and not as cramped as the Freestar. The Sienna is quiet, refined, well built, holds its value and gets great mileage. My only complaint is the strange location of the gear shift.

The Sienna got us all of the features we wanted/needed on the base model for a great price. Tumble-under 3rd row seat, the bucket seat 2nd row that swing forward for easy access to the back (great for getting kids in and out of car seats), and engine's power (I think it's the most powerful base engine out there) in combination with the good gas mileage. We thought we got a good deal by getting our CE for $22,400 on the last Saturday of the month. Great standard features and awesome passing acceleration on the free way (better than our Camry) and the turning radius is superb which makes U-turns easy.

This car was definitely worth the 6 week waiting period. It's easy to drive and rides very smooth. I thought it might be too big to drive moving from a compact car to a minivan but the Sienna is very comfortable, definitely not too big.

My husband got this van as a "whole family" present during Christmas. I got to drive the Sienna during Christmas Day while there was barely any traffic and I must say that it's ride is smooth and very car-like. (This is my first minivan since our Camry & ES300). Steering is tight and performance is pretty good. Fuel economy suprised us when is was up to 28MPG. Pretty good for a large car. I loved how luxurious the car was. Overall, It's the best minivan I've ever driven.

We are expanding to three kids and loved the ability to get three kids in the second row, fold in the third row, and have TONS of cargo space! I find it drives very much like a car, not a truck. It is quite easy to get kids into/out of the van; even my 2 year old can get himself up into the van unassissted. We also opted for the safety package which gave us traction control, stability control, EBD, etc. Drives great in the snow w/o AWD.

Toyota really improved the Sienna for '04 by changing pretty much everything about the vehicle. The styling inside and out make it truly a thing of beauty. I just love my car! Even my sibling who own Lexus, Mercedes and BMW's were impressed with its styling and handling. I've had my car since June of '03 (I was the first in my area to own one!) and I still enjoy it more and more each time I drive it. Thank you Toyota for such a fine family vehicle.

I researched before choosing my new minivan. With three kids, one with a wheelchair I needed room. Without folding seats down, I can fit the wheelchair and groceries in the back and have room for 8 people. The front center seat moves forward, important for parents of infants. You can give a baby a pacifier, while watching the road. Going on a family trip, I'll be able to fold the back seats and put all three kids in the center row leaving lots of room for suitcases, coolers etc. When we arrive the seats go back up and make room for cousins! Perfect family car.

I bought my van from a local dealer at about 1700 less than MSRP. No hassles at all. The only problem I've had was the alignment was slightly off, but the dealership fixed it right away and gave me a rental while it was in the shop. Otherwise the van is great. This is my first experience with a mini-van and so far I am very satisfied. I especially love the 60/40 third row seat and all the room behind it when it is up and in use. The engine is quiet and smooth. It has a little more road noise than I expected but it isn't that bad. The driver's seat has a manual height adjustment, which is great.

We looked at all the minivans on the market and settled or final inspection on Nissan, Honda and Toyota. We chose these three because customer satisfaction, resale value, reliability and features of the van. Nissan was quickly eliminated as some of the features on theinterior were cheap in appearance for a van of its price. . We purchased an XLW with DVD system which came with package #16 the light metallic blue color. We were surprised that the dealer actually negogiated a fair price instead of MSRP and located our vehicle.

After being a Ford owner for the past 15 years and coming off owning a Ford Windstar, I find mt new Sienna a refreshing breathe of fresh air. The ride is so much smoother, the engine is so quiet that I sometimes have to look at the dash console to see if the car is actually running. I find the turning radius is not only superior to any Van I have driven and I had tested quite a few before buying the Sienna, but tighter than many cars I have driven in. That along with the many saftey features than come standard in the Sienna have made me a big Toyota fan. I also would like to thank the Knowledgeable staff for making it an enjoyable experience.

My husband and I went looking for a SUV with a 3rd row of seats as we have 2 small children. We had a Jeep Grand Cherokee and we needed something a little bigger. We were completely against buying a minivan. We went to the Toyota dealership to drive 2 different SUVs. This particular dealership didn't have either one of the SUVs we were wanting to look at. The salesman got me to drive a Sienna and before I even drove it I fell in love with it. It is the best car I have ever owned. Well worth the cost.

First off, for those of you that want leather and to get rid of the black lacquer dash and install wood grain accents in an LE it is possible--mine was done at the port up in Jacksonville before being shipped to the dealership. You'll pay, but it is well worth it. If you are a music fan, do not pass on the JBL system...I did and regret it. As far as performance, this vehicle moves- but as others have stated the brakes are soft and the transmission does hesitate a bit but nothing really to complain about. Toyota has really produced a well thought out vehicle. We are very satisfied.

Previously owned a 2001 Sienna CE. The 2004 is smoother, softer-riding, very quiet on the road. Handling has improved on cornering. Acceleration is Just a dite less that my previous Sienna, and of course, gas mileage is less, locally. This is a top-of-the- line car in many ways: convenience, improved interior lighting, overall looks, but the inside and its seemingly hundreds of conveniences is outstanding. Yes, I plan to be a repeat buyer!

I had the car for 330 miles and the ride was like a truck. When I took it to the dealer, hear is the answer I received on my service ticket. "Advised custome of tempatures below 30 degrees. COuld cause oil in shocks and struts to thicken producing harsh ride." Well the tempature went to 43 degrees and still a harsh ride. I drove three other Sienna's and still a harsh ride. We returned the Van. If it rides like a truck, who cares about the other qualities of the car. If you going to buy this van, don't get caught up in what they say is a smooth ride. NOTE: MY dealer was great during the process of returning the VAN.

Had blown front struts, The center console rattles, it rides like I'm in a roller coaster, and now am fighting w/Toyota over warranty on my arm rests due to major material defect showing wear at only 2K miles.

We traded in our 2001 Toyota Sienna for a 2004 model. It is very clear that Toyota's goal was to make it more functional, but keep the costs down. We paid less for our 2004, and the design improvements made it a great value. However, the level of workmanship seems to have suffered a bit. We gained a few bells and whistles, but gave up a few others. If I had it to do over again, I would have waited until the package we wanted became available (DVD, power outlets, chrome wheels, etc.). Overall, I am happy with the purchase decision.

Tested all Minivans and the Large SUVs out in the market. All had their pros and cons. What sold us on the toyota was the comfort factor and the 2nd row windows roll DOWN. Also has a smooth and quite ride. The engine has adequate power and quite. Like the way the 3rd row seats fold away flat. 2nd row seats are cumbersome to move. Toyota increase supply to meet demand!!!

I love this van...after coming out of a Ford Windstar (they should be ashamed they produce such a substandard product!), this Toyota is AWESOME!! no comparison...The seats are so comfortable and the automatic door is great. The folding rear seat is helpful and the inside is so spacious. If you have young children I highly recommend the DVD system...it is a life saver!

Could be Better

Typical Toyota quality. Everything works as designed. Not flashy but not a dog. Soft to sloppy steering is way below prior Chrysler's. Climate control system is hard to work and balance for front passengers. This car could be so much better with a few small improvements. Still seemed to be the best overall choice (despite being the most costly) due to quality reputation of Toyota. Time will tell.

great car for moms

Excellent and comfortable ride. Gets great mileage on the highway, but I find it guzzles in the city. My kids love the roll down sliding door windows. This is my first mini-van after driving subcompacts for 25 years so it is taking some getting used to. I still find it hard to park but it has a very tight turning circle. The split 3rd row seats are very handy for hauling stuff and kids. I don't know why no other minivan has this feature? This is the most comfortable vehicle I have owned. Is very smooth and quiet even at high highway speeds (75MPH)

Well Worth the Money

My wife and I never thought that we would be in a mini-van, but here we are. We test drove several models. The new Sienna handles like a car with a ton of room on the inside. We are very happy with our purchase.

Lot's of room and places to store stuff. The Seina holds more than the Tacoma's 6ft bed. I don't miss my Toyota Tacoma one bit. Very smooth and controled ride. Great fuel economy. I'm averaging 22+ mpg and the motor is still breaking in (1500 miles). It's only going to get better.

The depreciation on the American vans is so steep that it is a far better value to buy any one of them used. With reliability also a concern, I went to the Honda dealer, and then the Toyota dealer, and took both for test rides. The next weekend I reversed the order, but again took them both out. Both times it was clear--the Seinna rides much quieter and nicer than the Honda. This confirms what Consumer's Report concluded. Having owned it for a few months, and having put 4k on it, we couldn't be more pleased. One pleasant surprise--I bought an 8 seater simply because it happened to be in the color I like. And now we are glad that we did!

nice van

It's an okay car from my stand point (The back seat). The second row seats are pretty confortable but the 3rd row seats are stiff. I spent a 8 hour trip in the 3rd row and had back and neck spasms the next day. Everything else in the car is great.

I have had a great experiance with my van so far. I needed the eight seats and even with the extra seat, it is quite easy to get in and out of. The fold away third seat is great! The gear shifter being in a different spot was a bit awkward for about a day. Now it makes sense because it gives you more control on the steering wheel. Lots of room in all seating areas. Lots of storage space throughout the van.

I love my American Toyota

I have been changing cars every 2 or 3 years, but now I have found the one I am keeping. This van makes having a family fun, espically on long driving vacations.I love the dual automatic doors, and it comfortably seats adults as well.

Mileage is awesome for size of car. I regulary get 30+ on fairly level roads with speed between 60-65. Drops to 27- 29 at 70+ on freeways, depending on winds and traffic (ability to keep constant speed=better milage). Interior configuration options great and easy to change. I'm a big person with neck/back arthritis and I select a vehicle based on ability to get in without having to bend head/body. This one works!

awesome

This is an incredible van. I was dead set against getting a van but my husband talked me into it. I hated the way vans handled (I always had sports cars). This van is a dream. It turns on a dime and has amazing gas milage. It had 6 miles on it when we purchased it and I am upset that someone else got to enjoy those miles. I would recommend this van to anyone. It's a 10 out of 10.

As a die-hard Toyota consumer, this is my first experience with the Sienna. Waited specifically for the newly, redesigned model, and well worth the wait. Plenty of room; great gas mileage; engine pickup is terrific (when needed); and it's reliable! A++

I have two children that outgrew our voyagers bench seat. They are both very tall and need a lot of leg room. I found the Sienna had plenty of leg room, even in the 3rd row for their 5'12" friend!

What we love best about this van is the roomy trunk. It makes traveling much easier when we can fit all of our suitcases in the back.

We like our 2004 Sienna so much that we think that Toyota picked the wrong name for it. My 5 year old son thinks that it should be called the Toyota Supervan and I think that it should be called the Toyota Joy because it is a JOY to drive. Every day we talk as a family about how much we love the features of our van. Can you tell???? WE LOVE OUR TOYOTA!!! IT IS THE BEST CAR WE HAVE EVER OWNED IN ALL OF OUR LIVES! ***** 5 stars THANKS TOYOTA!

One heck of a great van!!!!
