- Is easy to manuver with short turing circle
- Brake is not efficient enough. When is runing more than 80 mph, it become unstable
I bought a 06 version in last July and now have above 5000 miles on it. At the second week of the purchase, I have to go back to dealer for several times to fix the right side door which create big noise whenever it is moving. And then i head a strange noise from the engine every time after i start the car, like KAZI. I went back to the dealer again and this time they told me it is normal with the new model. i cannot understand why the new model need this type of noise and still cautious....
The brake is not efficient enough, at least is not efficient as I expected. I almost crashed into the front car for several times....read morehide

- It okey van and big.
- Over all I am not satidfy with this van.
I brought Van 2006 Sienna CE last year. Last three month problem started There is Pop noise when driving the vehicle around 35 - 55 mph.
I take van to Toyota Service center to repair 6 times and could not repair the Van. Call Toyota customer Service center. Not good experience with Toyota server center and Customer Support. When you drive the Van with Tech. they heard and feel the problem. I also drive the new van to see this problem persist. It had no noise and drive smoothly. On highway if you on speed above 65 mph and reduce the speed it make big pop sound for fraction of second van shake and go smooth. Before buying the Van drive this van on high way.
Over all I am not satisfy with this van....read morehide

- Very Roomy and Handles well for a big vehicle
- Transmission can't always decide what to do
Purchased this vehicle in March, 2006. Overall VERY satisfied with vehicle. I got the base model that does not have run flat tires, so I am COMPLETELY satsfied with the tires. My kids love all the space and so do I. Roomy front seats, middle seats (captains chairs) and back row. I never thought I would own a mini-van since I was an SUV girl, but I am completely satisfied. One wish is that they did not make the front hood slope down. It should be straight out like a regular car is. I can now haul just about anything, no space limitations. My 2 kids (ages 3 and 5) fit well in the capitans chairs and their booster seats latch down great. This is VERY important for parents. Kids love the big windows that actually roll down (unlike other mini vans), the back seat has light and air for passengers while is GREAT! I don't think I'll be able to go back to any other tye of vehicle now. This minivan has everything I need and was about $10,000 LESS than a comparable SUV....read morehide

As a precautionary statement to all: I am a proud new owner of a 2006 toyota sienna. After only 12000 miles on it my brakes went bad. I know how to drive and how to brake correctly. They said its normal wear and tear. Sure. It was brand new Van. So I have already spent a great $200. to fix the front brake pads. My vehicle was only 7 months old. When I asked about a warranty they said that it is normal wear and tear.After researching why the brakes die so quickly its because toyota has started using softer brake pads. You cant use any other brand with the rotors or calipers due to incompatibility(will make your car squeal nonstop) Also I have been told to expect to have to change the tires every 20,000 miles. I think it would have been pretty good to know all about this stuff before I purchased this vehicle. I did the research and never came up with any of this information. On average expect to change the brake pads every 15,000 to 20,000 miles....read morehide

- Comfortable to drive, it has a rack on a CE. Smooth.
- No auto light off! No folding seats in middle rows. Heavy on gas. No defrost on side view mirrors
Hard in the winter because of no defrost on side view mirrors. Disappointed it doesn't have auto light off. Killer on gas, not fuel economy. No folding seats in the middle rows compared to the Caravan. The armrests are small not wide enough. The passengers headrest are uncomfortable. No chime when the light has been left on.
Good design by putting the gearshift in the middle. 8 passengers is cool. Can't see the hood, which is a two thumb up. Still need major improvements in this van. Honda seems to have better design.
Overall this van is average....read morehide

- Bad brake system.
I had a 2005 Sienna CE van and driven for almost 2 years with 23400 miles onit. The last time I took it in for service wass about 2000 miles ago. I had asked the dealer to check the brake system. The dealership id Don McGill Toyota. They told me nothing wrong with the brake system. I found out the rotors worn out and pads are bad and brouh it back to them. I told them that the service person checked the brake out about 2000 miles ago and nothing wrong with why rotors and pads turn bad now. They told me that Sienna van can worn out brake pads and rotors at 7000 to 8000 miles. I am shock to know about his. This is very poorly engineering car....read morehide

- the fuel economy is as advertised, fit and finish, comfort
We bought the Sienna after our Windstar died after a trip to Yellowstone. I wanted to but American, but I had put about five thousand into this car on repairs, such as powwer steering, bad engine intake, two alternators... The Sienna was cheaper than a comparable American van, and the performance has been beyond expectations. We get 20-22 mpg in the city and 26 on the hiway. The handling is comparable to a large sedan. It is a great vehicle....read morehide

- Looks good
- Toyota doesn't stand behind thier cars!
I bought a used certified Toyota Sienna. I also bought Toyota's Extra Care Warranty. I had the car for 20 months and then on June 26th I was driving on the highway and the car started making a really bad knocking sound. I got the car home but I had to get it towed into Toyota. They said that a spark plug broke off into the engine and I had extensive engine work. I told them that I had the warranty so they called extra care. Extra care sent a inspector to the car and they determined that since a spark plug which is a non-covered component is what caused the damage they do not have to cover the repairs which would cost around $7500 because they would have to replace the entire engine. Nobody at the dealerships or at Toyota is willing to give on this and I'm out $10,000! I advise never to buy a used Toyota because they do not stand behind thier cars!...read morehide

- average fuel economy; better than my '04 Sienna; the CE offers great value;
- rough transmission upshifts; trunk door still hard to close;
excellent dealer support; why the change in horsepower? i.e. from 230 hp to 215 hp in "06; imperceptible to notice, though;
