Purchased As New
Likes: Exterior styling, keyless entry, remote engine starter, ottoman lounge seats, dual moonroofs, ambiance light around rear moonroof, dual monitors, power reclining and folding 3rd row seats, power 3rd row windows, sun shades on both 2nd and 3rd rows, backup guidance, parallel park assist, blind spot monitor, automatic vicinity light (interior and side mirrors lights turn on automatically when you approach the van at night), Blizzard Pearl exterior color with chrome trims, polished 18" rims and tinted windows look really nice to me.
Dislikes: Navigation not usable while van is moving, low resolution navi screen, steering feels too light, fake wood on steering wheel, gas mileage (19.5 mpg lifetime average to date), interior noise, engine noise, USB port only for audio (can't play iPad or .avi movies), DVD remote has no volume control, ottoman seats can't recline all the way back, long seat tracks on the floor will eventually trap lots of dirt and impossible to clean up, light gray interior is bad for kids (can't believe Toyota only offers light color interior), cheap plastic dashboard, poor fit and finish, poor ergonomic (can't see/access DVD player when dashboard cupholder is pulled out, USB port and 12v outlet not accessable when you put small trash can on the floor tray).
We test drove Honda odyssey and Nissan Quest as well, decided to purchase Sienna Limited because Sienna, IMO, looks nicer on the outside compared to the other two (although I would rank Odyssey's and Quest's interior higher than Sienna), and it still offers better features and value for comparable price. All 3 of our kids voted for Sienna Limited. Wife voted for Odyssey Touring Elite. Majority wins.
