I am a 62 year old female with arthritis in the back and the knees. This is the best van in the world for comfort and ease. Getting in and out is a breeze! Riding around town or long highway trips is comfortable in the front seats and very roomy in the rear seats. My five grandchildren fit excellently in the rear seats. I highly recommend this vehicle.

We traded our 2000 Sienna XLE for the 2011 4cyl. LE trim model. It has all the bells and whistles we need. It's true-the interior quality is inferior to the first gen. Sienna, but I have to say: we have lived hard in this van and it just continues to take our punishment after 6 years. The plastics might appear cheap, but they have taken everything we have thrown at them. Maintenance costs have been minimal through six years (a battery change; brake pads, tires). This could be due to my regular maintenance habits. When we purchased the vehicle, our plan was to keep it at least 10 years as we keep vehicles far a long time ('95 F150, '02 Avalon, '07 Xterra). We believe it will make it based on its reliability so far and the fact that our kids are either grown or nearly grown. We would recommend a Sienna to anyone in the market for a minivan. They are priced in the market "sweet spot" as minivans go and they are perfect for families with 2-4 children. We have plenty of nit-picky gripes we could share, but overall, we couldn't be more pleased with the daily reliability of our Sienna. And one more point: research the reliability history of Toyota 4 cylinder engines. They are one of the most bullet-proof machines ever manufactured. This was the argument my wife used to win the battle for "her" minivan v. "my" sport ute. Oh well...

I do love this van. Used almost daily for hauling gardening equipment and lots of mulch in the spring. I live and work in the city so not practical to have large van or open pick up truck. Comfort is great, often 4 of us and equipment. Just enough room. The van cleans up pretty well even after all the dirt and mulch (we do have a tarp in the back which helps). Overall the van is great. My only complaint is the blind spots on the driver and passenger sides of the windshield.

We bought our first ever brand new vehicle in 2010. A 2011 tayota Siena. Very nice family vehicle. But my van get used everyday for about less than 1hour. It sits all day. Fisrt we keep finding littles parts falling apart. Every so often you'll find a screw or parts sitting on the floor. Never knowing where it came from. Then the back seat, when we went to pull it up. The whole handle came out. Now the whole side of the front seat by the door where the control buttons are fell apart. Cannot put it together. Went to tayota to fix it. They said it will cost us to fix both. It was not handle roughly and damage by the kids. They are teenagers and they are hardly in the van. Maybe on weekend only. I think it was poorly built and there should be a recall on these and should be fixed by tayota. Very disappointed for our first new vehicle. Expect this from used cars.

I purchased the van new and it now has about 106,300 km. This van is now about 4.5 years old and in the last 7 month, I've had the following problems; (1) air conditioner compress had to be replaced, (2) starter motor failed, (3) Driver power seat failed. Other than these problems, I really enjoyed driving this van.

Bought Sienna new in 2010, now have 48K on it. Mileage is great - 20 mixed and 25+ hwy. Engine has lots of zip to pass. Interior plastics and trims feel a little cheap. Leather only OK. Price to buy was descent compared to crossovers. Towing capacity is a lie - there is a 45 MPH speed limit, special hitch, and electric brakes required. Had a problem that was quasi-warranty and Toyota dealer and corporate was absolutely positively without a doubt useless. Even though we like the van in general have put Toyota on our do not buy list.

I have asked to replace seat with a better one but toyota didn't t have that option.I offered to buy the seat at my expense. Windshield is cheap .middle row is a bad design I am 6ft1" and have trouble lifting the seat out.then the rails are exposed .I would go back to north americian van for comfort. Tires are cheap . Van looks good performance is good . Cargo space and fuel economy are both good. Cabin filter ? Who needs that expense? Chevy bring back a 8 seater with your comfort.

Driving XLE for almost 2 years. Put on around 31K miles. Still on first set of tires, but looks like will need new ones within 10K. Bought brand new in January 2011 in Newnan, GA. Pros: 3.5L engine, V6. Definately a way to go for these cars. Cons-a little slow response to the acceleration. A little bit cheap plastic interior, though easy to clean and no reflection from direct sun. Free 2-year dealer service is good, but nothing tremendous. Usually includes 2 oil changes, 3-5 tire rotations and cabin filter replacement. Has a lot of trouble with sunroof. Rubber pieces are coming off the rails constantly, though dealership replaces them under warranty. Gas economy averages 20mpg. HWY 25mpg.

Not only is my car an amazing fit for my family and I, but it's performance is great as well. Also, when driving long distances with children it's great to be comfortable which we definitely are. I I am most grateful to the sale person at Toyota Grossing, Sargon C, without whom I wouldn't have been able to pick the best fit for us. He made my experience wonderful and easy. There were no complications and it was the best customer service I have received.

Make sure to put money aside if you buy a Sienna! At 13,000 miles I was told I needed new tires on the front. By 15,000 I definitely needed new tires! Toyota shuffled me back and forth to corporate, Firestone, and back to the dealer. At no point did Toyota ever take responsibility for anything! Firestone was great, but Toyota was definitely lacking (and I had followed their maintenance regime to the letter!). So, get a good deal if you plan to buy a Sienna because you will probably be getting a new set of tires within the first year! Crazy! P.S. They also "corrected" the alignment--even though it is impossible to adjust the rear alignment without shims! Seriously Toyota?

The installed Toyota GPS, while fun to use with it's large touch screen is DVD based, and the disk provided with my NEW Sienna was two years out of date... does not even have my street included (5 years old). AND... Toyota wants a ridiculous $250 for an updated disk! You can purchase a much better GPS, more features, and lifetime map updates for a little more than half that. Just stick it to the face of the Toyota display... Come on Toyota - get reasonable. A NEW car should at least have a current verions disk... and be provided with updates during warranty.

I love my Sienna SE. It looks good, fun to drive, fast, comfortable. I've owned a lot of cars in my 69 years and this is one of the best. I see a lot of people don't like the interior dash material. I like it very much. I think it has a rich feel to it. Not a fan of the design of the dash. It looks to feminan for me. I went from a full size Chevy conversion van to this and I seem to have just as much room. Since the seats fold, I think I can get more stuff in this than my Chevy. Won't go into details but had problems with the Chevy was reason for changing. Never been a fan of the Toyota logo so I changed all the emblems to Lexus. Some may not approve of this but I get a lot of looks.

I am not mechanical at all .So this review is driver experience only .After driving 37,000kms and a year in ,the 2011 Sienna is uncomfortable in the drivers seat .Cheap seats. The design of the tracks that the middle row runs on, is horrible and the seats are so heavy to remove .I am 6ft and 190 lbs 40 yrs old and find it hard to remove the middle row .When you remove the middle row and fold the rear seats becareful not to damage the rails when you put your cargo in . The exterior paint is soft and the windshield is rough when the wipers pass over it on a showery day .Looks good on the outside .Lots of cargo area . The eight passenger will not be happy.Drives nicely and pick up is good

disapointed in some aspects of the design

It rained last night. The roof was wet. I needed to roll down the drivers side window to see. The water from the roof poured directly into the car. The controls for the power windows got very wet. To make it worse each window control sits on top of a small well that holds the water and assures that it drains into the window control mechanism. The interior side of the front doors seem flimsy. I am tall and my left knee pushes against the protrusion that holds the window controls. I see it flexing each time my left leg moves. I am concerned that the flimsy plastic that makes up the interior door will eventually crack after repeated exposures to my left leg pushing against it.

I just purchased my 2011 XLE Sienna two weeks ago and found out that not all addresses are in the navigation system, even those that have been in existence for quite some time. When I had the dealership check it, they said they cannot do anything because the disk that uploads the direction is contracted out to a third party vendor. When asked if the problem can be resolved, they said they cannot guarantee that the issue would be fixed. I was then directed to the corporate customer relations department. The representative said the same thing and was not very helpful. To make a long story short, I would think twice about buying this since Toyota doesn't appear to have this problem resolve.

We've had our Sienna for almost a year now and thoroughly enjoy driving it. The pick up and turning radius are great. I have only two complaints.....Our LXE has everything but the DV D package and YET....No automatic headlights. The dash lights come on automatically but NOT the headlights....go figure. More annoyingly, when decending even a SLIGHT grade, the cruise control can not keep the set speed within 10-15 MPH. Took it in for check out and was told to read the owners manual...No other vehicle I own or have owned seems to have this problem. Granted, they may gain a few MPH, but will hold the speed much closer than this. Look out speeding ticket!

Nice looking mini van but Toyota skimped on the quality of the interior especially the seats. Imagine your surprise after buying an expensive automobile and every time you or a passenger are in it the seats squeak terribly. I am talking about all the seats. The seat backs squeak and the seat bottoms squeak when you shift your body weight the slightest. They squeak when you pull away and when you brake the van. The second row seats can be removed but you are left with a big,bulky track above the floor level. Terrible design ! I have owned this vehicle over 1 year and have over 20,000 miles on it.

I change this van, upgrading from a 07 Honda Oddysey, I have more than a year with it, and will said that I miss the honda, but this have some new features, like the electric power steering, that is a big difference from a hydraulic one, this will make the city drive more comfortable, but I think, I need more attention to drive on the road, because steering is so soft to move. I believe that the honda had better aceleration on the start (low RPM). The new dessing for the middle seat are not rigth, the seat are getting too hard to move, my wife can not move them anymore, and the floor mat get stuck under the seat very often. The front seat has the problem that the plastics keep falling off.

Previous Odyssey owner but needed AWD. The difference between the Honda and Toyo products are a wash...+ and - to both...hard to believe people make out the difference to be greater than it is. Owned an Escalade ESV before the switch to minivans and can't believe I even thought the Caddy was a great family car. My wife came around to minivans following the Escalade debacle and never looked back...she is very happy. Minivans are incredibly flexible and easy to live with especially when it comes to parking (good luck parking Escalade in tight spots). Better performance in mtn driving than expected secondary to a well balanced suspension. 6' tall and seats are great

After test driving a lot of CUVs and vans we couldn't resist the value and potential reliability of Sienna to replace our 03 Sienna (no that it needed raplacement). We are pleased with the space and tech goddies compared to 03. The drivetrain is sublime. the V6 is very punchy and the 6 speed is smooth. on a 400 mile trip we got 25 mpg. my wife absolutely loves it. hope we are set for another 10 yrs. though I have noticed cost reduction in interiror trim. AT the end, as long the trim holds up, relaiblity of major electromechanical items (aka powertrain, power equipment) is what matters.

This is first Toyota ever. I have always avoided them due to the rip-off junk and fees Southeast Toyota adds on to the stickers. They still do it but are doing a little better job of hiding them. At any rate, I bought it because of the large amount of space between the first and second row seats (due to the second row seats long travel). While yes, some of the dash components are cheap, I can live with it. They at least made an effort to make a minivan look different. The engine is smooth and the new six speed trany works well.

I recently bought a 2011 Sienna. My 2nd Sienna (previous 2001) that I traded in for new one. What an all around disappointment. It screams CHEAP, CHEAP, CHEAP!!! Toyota should be ashamed of themselves for what they did to this vehicle. The interior is especially lousy! Hard, cheap plastic everything! I'd give anything to have my beautiful, old one back. There are so many flaws and disappointments in this van, I wish I could bring it back to the dealer. The 2011 will NEVER go the distance like previous generations.

Our family of five outgrew our 2006 Mazda5 (great car) and were we ready for a full-size minivan. We researched, test drove and compared all the top recommended, re-designed vans of 2011, and ultimately decided on the Sienna. We are all so happy with our new minivan! I like that the Sienna '11 is an IIHS top safety pick, and I preferred the exterior appearance to the other top safety pick van. I also really liked that I could get a lot of useful and important features (two rows of sunshades, iPod connectivity and XM) without having to get leather seats (ick, who thinks dead cow is luxury?!) Overall the Sienna was the perfect minivan package for our family - our swagger wagon rules!

We purchased our Sienna 14 months ago and have driven it 19k miles. We still have our 2001 Sienna with 135k miles on it and the new van has improved in every way. Didn't like the van at first because of the ride, but replaced the run flats with normal tires and it now rides and drives like a luxury vehicle. We get about 20 mpg in town and 25 mpg on the road. So far, we are very pleased.

I had a Dodge Grand Caravan in the late 90's and loved the space (not the reliability). Since then have had a Tahoe, Envoy, CRV and Volvo S80 (the worst piece of junk I ever owned). This car is just for my wife and I (and a dog). We love this car. It is spacious, lets us hang clothes on a trip and in general is just a wonderful experience. To those who complain about the NAV, I would say learn to use it properly. Further, no NAV system is perfect. I have not used the voice activation, but from what I can see in the manual, it works great. Love the bluetooth as I do not always hear my phone, but with the connected bluetooth, never lose a call. I have averaged almost 21 MPG.

I bought my brand new 2011 Sienna XLE about a month ago. I was going to take a cross country trip (Indy to San Diego, LA, San Fransisco, Elko, Grand Junction, Denver, Salina to Indy. I wanted a large van but not a full size van. My wife loved the Toyota and after about a month of dealing with local Indy dealers on my 2006 Rav4 as a trade in, I finally bought one. The selection of available vans was better at some dealers than others. I bought from the dealer in Anderson, Indiana because they gave me the most for my trade in. After a month of ownership and about 6K miles, I can report back that this mini van is excellent. It got very good gas mileage, comfortable, and fun to drive.

It was the right way to go!

Just bought our 2011 Sienna last week and it drives like a dream! Steering is so smooth, turns and corners effortlessly. Has great pick up. Feels like your driving a living room on wheels. The first few days I felt like the car was almost too luxurious for me! Definitely spend the money or negotiate the price to get the XLE model. Ours has leather seats and navigation. I figure the dvd can be bought after market. Leather because our kids would have destroyed the fabric seats. It was between this and the Honda Odyssey. Test drove both and in the end it was a youtube video that helped us decide. Type in Toyota Sienna vs. Honda Odyssey and look for video from New York Training.

There is no other to compare

Bought our "swagger wagon" after much research this past April. We tried every competitive minivan and even a few SUVs, but we need 7-passenger seating so the field is limited. We've had two Dodge Caravans and they began to fall apart after about five years. The Kia is junk IMO. So, it cams down to the Odyssey and the Sienna. The Sienna won for three reasons: 1. Price beats the Honda by a few thousand, 2. Consumer Reports show Toyota reliability is unbeaten by anyone in the long run (and we hope to keep this van for many years) 3. The Honda is just plain ugly on the outside (looks like a hearse). IMO, the 2011 Sienna is the best looking minivan ever.

Highly Recommended

We love our Sienna. We’ve had it for approximately 4 months and have put almost 5,000 trouble-free miles on it, including several long road trips. The Vehicle Quiet, roomy, comfortable, attractive, safe, and reliable. Very agile steering -- this huge vehicle is very nimble in parking lots and tight corners. I think the base XLE is a very good value, especially with an after-market DVD player. In my opinion the premium package and limited versions are too expensive, and the AWD version seems to have some disadvantages. The Competition There are lots of great minivans on the market but the Sienna was an easy choice for us. We’ve always found Hondas to be uncomfortable, and I’ve never been impressed by the Odyssey’s consumer reviews. The Kia is nice, but we thought the Sienna was much more attractive and we were surprised how little difference there is in the price. The Quest’s styling is polarizing and controversial (once again) and the limited cargo situation was an issue for us despite its beautiful interior. Finally, I just don’t trust Chrysler/Dodge quality (whether that’s fair or not). Final words I think the “cheap interior” controversy is a little over-hyped. The 2011 XLE cabin is much more attractive than the 2010 Sienna or the 2011 Sedona. Additionally, since there is absolutely no center column, this interior just feels much more spacious then most other vehicles. Being a practical, price-conscious consumer, I would have loved to have saved money by buying a used Sienna, but the used Siennas are so bizarrely expensive it’s just not worth it. Bottom Line: Highly recommended. We are very happy with our 2011 Toyota Sienna XLE.

We had a 2006 Honda EXL prior to this. Before that we had 3 Chrysler vans. This is by far the best minivan we have owned! Honda steering and brakes do not measure up to this Toyota.

Better than expected

After much debate, we sold our 2005 Sienna XLE and found a great deal on a 2011 Sienna Limited ($2200 under invoice!). The ride is superior to our 2005; I would describe it as more "plush". The interior cabin noise is much improved over the '05 as well. Overall, in our mind, the Sienna beats the honda and the nissan hands down. The ability to move the second row so far back was what sold us on the Sienna. Overall, we are really happy with the purchase.

Very Disappointed

We purchased the Sienna XLE a few weeks ago. We spent good money on a high end vehicle expecting great quality, unfortunately we've been very disappointed. All the back seats are squeaking and rattling. It started with the 3rd row seat, then the pilot chair seats. We brought it into the dealership to have it looked and they said Toyota was aware of the issues on some of the Siennas and that there was no fix. They said they are working a redesign! Why did they let this go out the door. Furthermore, when we asked the dealership to help us out and resolve the issue, they said it's not their problem (there exact words). I will never buy a Toyota again!!

Sienna SE is pretty good, but could be better

we choose the Sienna based on build quality (I work for a Toyota supplier). The reliability seems to be there, but Toyota went cheap on a couple of things. The interior plastics belong on a lowly Kia, they are hard to the touch and I'm guessing will be prone to sqeaking in due time. The sliding doors stick frequently. The van is fun to drive, for a van, the steering is precise and the handling on the SE is probably the most fun of all minivans. The looks are pretty aggressive and hats off to Toyota for putting 19" rims on it, giving the van a sporty stance. Swagger wagon marketing is valid on the SE.

Door broke and Toyota can't fit it

The driver's side door on our new Sienna does not work. We have taken it to the dealer three times. The dealer and the national Toyota repair people do not know how to fix this. Toyota will not provide a loaner. When we called to request arbitration paperwork, we were told it would take 10-14 business days. I strongly believe this is an unethical business practice. We will continue to seek damages under state law and will never buy a Toyota again.

Pay very special attention to the plastic coated steel wire that is part of power sliding door mechanism. You can find this wire in the groove/track under the rear windows. The plastic coating of this wire on my van dried up and cracked, exposing the steel wire. When this happens, the door will be hard to open. When the steel is completely exposed, eventually the cable can snap. It happened to me and my doors (yes, both sliding doors) are only in manual mode now. I was told that it would cost $2000/door to fix. The front doors have welding issues. When they are opened and closed, they make a LOUD "snapping" noise. This model came with runflat tires. They are expensive to replace.

Bought this van when our 2nd child was on her way last June. Immediately loved the practicality and versatility of the interior. It just makes life easy with kiddos in car seats. Also have used it to haul various cargo and people and wondered what we did without it. It drives well for a van with a smooth ride although the steering and brake feel are a little light. The dash plastic is a tad on the cheesy side but the switchgear has a quality feel. Unfortunately so far we have had a window leak, a recall notice for the brake pedal bracket, and now have a stability control problem that has illuminated 4 warning lights and the central info screen. What the heck has happened to Toyota Quality?

Love it so far

I have owned my 2011 Toyota Sienna LE V6 FWD since November 2010. I have put 4100 miles on it. So far I haven't had any issues and this vehicle is the most comfortable I have ever driven. Road trips are very nice, the van has plenty of power and doesn't drive at all like a van. The only complaint that I have so far is the road noise in the second and third row seats at highway speed. I also upgraded the seats after buying to leather, this made a world of difference in the feel and appearance of the van. I would recommend going with the XLE because of the option of leather.

Finally Decided on a Van

Time to replace 6 year old Minivan for our family of 5. Don't care what other people perceive as 'Cool or Not' so without question we were getting another M'van. Comfort, convenience, Space and Efficiency all trump any stigma from others. Waited until the new Sienna, Odyssey and the Quest came out to decide and needing an 8 pax for that occasion when one of our kids brings three friends along, the Quest was out. Hours of websearch and extended Drives of each, we decided on the Sienna SE. We loved our Odyssey, but can't get past the new exterior so we got the Sienna. It looks/drives Sporty and loaded with options, Bluetooth, backup camera, moonroof etc; we're very, very satisfied.

Excellent

I took a month to compare the Odyssey EX and Sienna LE and found that EX lacks features that are standard in the LE. The only advantage on the EX is the second row middle seat but I thought how many days practically I will use it while I will use the blue tooth, backup camera, USB interface, Roof Rails, one touch windows (back seat), XM radio, Sun shield, Home link etc on a daily basis. Also the third row seats in Odyssey is smaller than Sienna and I started getting back ache within a 7 mile test ride (my wife was driving) while I was able to sit comfortable in Sienna with ample leg room (I am 6.1" with 230 pounds). Sienna LE comes out to $3500 cheaper than EX.

Disappointed

I have owned my Sienna XLE since April 2010 and have enjoyed it except for the rattling that developed shortly after I purchased it. The right rear passenger door panel is loose and the door and second row seats rattle when driving on all but the smoothest roads. The van has been in for repair of this issue six times at two dealerships, with no satisfactory resolution. As with all my four previously owned Toyota vehicles, I have had no mechanical problems with the Sienna. I have always had a great deal of confidence in Toyota products, but if this issue isn't resolved I probably will sell or trade the van. Not sure I would purchase another Toyota product.

Really don't like this car...

After really studying min-vans and SUVs, I decided on the Sienna, based partly on friends' recommendations, based partly on experience with Lexus (a near Toyota). Purchased a limited in April. What a disappointment!. We paid for a aftermarket navigational device. It never arrived, and we got our money back in August. In September, I hit our gate and damaged a door. the car was in the shop for 5 weeks because Toyota didn't have the parts available (according to the body shop, at least). It's noisy, big and a rough ride. Mine is once again in the shop. Brake trouble this time.

Still gives the biggest bang for the buck

Just bought a LE V6 FWD. This is my 2nd Sienna following the 04 and my 4th mini van in total. Considered Highlander and Pilot also. Pilot is high maintenace with the short timing belt change cycle nonsense plus the guzzling yet weak engine. Highland is good over all but it is simply more money for a less car compared to Sienna. The new Odyssey is simply too ugly in my taste. The new van drives good feels very stable on free way speed. like the LE's backup camera and XM radio. Like the front floor pad area which is a perfect place for putting a lady hand bag or something. The power driver's seat is very supportive and comfortable. 2nd row seats have more than enough lag room for most

Solid Car - Beware of Bluetooth on LE

When comparing the different versions of the Toyota Sienna 2011 if Bluetooth is an important feature then you really don't have much of a choice. The reason is that the Bluetooth with Navigation package is much more advanced than the standard Bluetooth that comes with the Limited Edition and it is only available for the XLE model. Three of the top five most critical Bluetooth profiles are absent from the standard Bluetooth package on the LE and they are Phone Book Address Profile (PBAP), Synchronization (SYNC) and Object Push Profile (OPP). Of these three profiles the fact that PBAP was left out is an atrocity!!! Aside from the Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP) and the Hands Free Profile (HFP), PBAP is undeniably the most important profile as far as making phone calls is concerned. It boggles my mind why Toyota would have left this out!!! Instead, owners are forced to manually add a MAXIMUM of 20 entries into a "Phone Book" which is merely a lookup table that tries to pull up a phone number based on how "you the owner" decided to record the matching voice tag. For those people who might actually bother taking the time to add any entries into the "Phone Book", limiting the number of entries to 20 only adds insult to injury! Considering most people on average have at least 3 phone numbers per contact (i.e. home, work, cell) Toyota is really limiting you to only 7 contacts. A true and correct implementation of Bluetooth would have (at the very least) included the HFP for voice dialing in conjunction with A2DP, PBAP and SYNC. Using this "industry standard" approach results in a seamless experience instead of the excruciatingly painful and ultimately futile one that users will have to endure. Unfortunately I don't see many complaints on the Internet regarding this shortcoming and I believe it's for good reason. Bluetooth is still a very new concept for most people -especially in cars and especially for the Sienna's target demographic which is still soccer moms. For most moms this will be their first encounter with a Bluetooth equipped car and they therefore have nothing to compare it to. For them, not having to look at their phones to dial, put them up to their ear or take their eyes off the road is a fabulous thing and since they don't know how things "should be" they don't care because as the old saying goes, "ignorance is bliss". But this is actually what angers me the most because it doesn't have to be like this and it shouldn't have to be like this. I just paid $30,000 for a brand spanking new Sienna 2011 and it can't perform the simple task of synching my wife's address book from her iPhone to the car so she can can simply hold the talk button and say "Call Steve Smith on mobile/home/work etc.". SHAME ON YOU TOYOTA!!! For more information on Bluetooth profiles you can check out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bluetooth_profile. Toyota, I think you guys should seriously consider going through the list and reading it over very carefully. Then have one of your engineers pair his/her cell phone with the current system installed in the 2011 Sienna LE ($30,000) versus a 2010 Kia Forte ($13,000) and tell me which experience is more pleasant.

Just can't get over the fact how good this van is despite bad publicity on Toyota vehicles. Test drove the 2011 Honda Odyssey, Chrysler Town and Country etc. They are no match. Excellent price! well worth it. I will buy Toyota's from now on! Heck with the media!

I purchased the SE due to it's awesome looks. Chose the color White. We live in snow county so I was concerned about the 19" low profile performance tires for traction in the snow. Much to my delight this is a tank in the snow even with these very sharp hi-tech tires. What a relief. Same traction as my 08 Odyssey which was quite good. Also had 4 Suburban vehicles prior and traction for the minivan is comparable. Minivans are quite, more room than Suburbans, handle much better, much easier in and out, much better gas mileage. Most guys I know love them but the wives still feel they don't want them yet. I hope this will change. Minivans are the greatest. What a way to Tour. SE is a WOW !!!
