#1
Above Average-Good Family Vehicle
Source: MSN Autos

...Pros: Best result from safety test, comfortable seats (quad seating), good accessories for passengers (cup holders, etc...).
Good-size interior space. Cons: Sliding doors rattle after a while, must bring in dealer for adjustment.
Does not handle well over speed bumps. Have been having problem with starter after 1yr.
Checked with several dealers and they confirmed that this is a common problem carried over from Camry since they both share same engine.
Tire's air pressure indicator only turns off if the air pressure is slightly higher than 33.
A little slow when...

#2
A GOOD MINIVAN
Source: MSN Autos

...Pros: I think the Sienna performs well for a minivan.
It handles nicely and accelerates fast. The styling is very good.
Cons: There are too many squeaks and rattles. I sometimes think It's going to break in half.
The seats are not too comfortable, either. Overall: I think this minivan will last pretty long. It has over 75,000 miles on it and is holding up pretty well...

The Sienna Minivan

...Pros: Very reliable vehicle Cons: Lacks Vvt-i engine though, 194 hp is a little on the low side uphills... Squeaks and rattles are common with the sliding doors Overall: Nice Car...

Superb Minivan
Source: MSN Autos

...Pros: Reliability. Driven 55K miles already and no problems at all.
Cons: A shorter turning radius would have been nice to enhance maneuverability. Overall: Very comfortable ride and smooth V-6 engine. Just the right size for our family of three...

Last Toyota
Source: MSN Autos

...Pros: Great Engine, Good Ride, Good use of space, excellent crash results, best in class, Good resale value because of Brand.
Cons: Problematic, Replaced steering Rack, 3 seat belts, spare tire mechanism, Doors creek, A/C isnt cold enough even w/ dual unit, A/C makes loud bang intermitently-dealer could not fix.
Tire pressure mechanism is quirky, Stereo is in the wrong place.
Brakes could be beefier. First Toyota and last one for me.Initial defect on delivery-alarm malfunction,
also quality of paint finish not what I expected for $31,000 vehicle Overall: Could have been a...

Good van - could be improved
Source: MSN Autos

...Pros: Comfortable for long trips, with kids. Runs well.
Lots of storage space. Cons: Our passenger side slide door doesn't alway stay open when we want it to.
Very inconvenient when unloading items on a downhill parking place.
Dealer could not fix this. Drivers side slide door has a handle on the inside that sticks occasionally and causes an "open door" problem.
Our car has developed a rattle this year - not sure but it's in the back passenger side somewhere.
Also front passenger door has floor trim that won't stay where it belongs. Overall: I do really like...

Brake problem!
Source: MSN Autos

...I took it to the dealer and they said they replaced some parts. The noise came back after 3 weeks. I took it back and the tech said may be it was the way I stepped on the brake! I told him I had been driving for 15 years and I had a 1995 Toyota Previa which I never had any brake noise at all! After 2 years, the brake started making loud noise and it took further distance to stop. I took the van to a local machanic and he cleaned the brake and replaced some other parts. Again, the noise was back after couple weeks. I am tired of it and I will return it when the lease is due. I regret that I...

the ultimate truck

...Overall: great performance vehicle...

#9
Very Happy
Source: MSN Autos

...Pros: Engine and it's sound, quality, ride and compact size ( perfect for city use) Cons: Defroster too weak, sliding door a bit weird and brake squeal.
Transmission problem. Overall: Really good, the engine sounds racecar like at higher RPMs,
the ride is superb ( I rented a Windstar and the engine was too loud,
the tranny downshifter too much, and the suspension was way too soft.) At 21,000 mi though,
on a long trip, I los the transmission, being a car entusiast, I know for a fact that this was just a freak accident, before that incident, the transmission shifted very...

Grandma's taxi

...Pros: safety,size, gas mileage, dependability, weight Cons: hatchback not automatic, cupholder attached to side door allows sticky drinks to spill and door sticks.
