Looks great but poor overall quality by Anthony from Tampa on 04/10/2012. Trim: 2011 Toyota Sienna LE 8-Pass V6, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Great looks, nice power train, quiet highway ride.
Cons: A bunch. Poor panel gaps (lift gate didn't line up properly), power sliding doors made noise and didn't shut properly, interior plastics are very cheap and hard, ugly antena mast, hard front seats, middle seat bottoms have a terrible angle with no adjustment, the middle seats are set on a rack that runs on tracks and the rack doesn't come out, the electronic power steering is nice and light in parking lots and nicely weighted at speed but if you happen to be accelerating from a low speed while turning the wheel you can feel the variable steering just go form light to firm like a switch was turned on, completely uncaring service dept. and the 800 # wasn't any help at all.
Overall review: I want people to know that I'm not a Toyota hater at all. I also have an 02 Camry with 92k on it and it's an excellent car. That is why we traded in our 06 Kia Sedona on the all new Sienna. We liked the new looks of the Sienna over the tired look of the Sedona. To say that I was disappointed is an understsement. I couldn't believe how uncaring Toyota corporate was and wasn't any help at all. After spending $31k for this lemon you would think they would offer some sort of a resolution for us. After 21k miles I am happy to say that tomorrow we will finally be unloading this disapointment for a 2012 Kia Sedona again. I know it's definitely not the best looking van for sure but before this Sienna we own 3 new Hyundai products ( 1 Hyundai and 2 Kia's) and the overall quality ran circles around at least the Sienna anyway.

Great Van by Polaskan on 10/24/2011. Trim: 2011 Toyota Sienna LE AWD 7-Pass V6, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: My Sienna is extremely comfortable. Visibility is fantastic and the ride is smooth and quiet. I have yet to find anything about this vehicle that I don't like. The interior is a bit light in color, but with new floor mats that I ordered, the problem of dragging mud and dirt into the vehicle should be solved. I bought the mats that fit the Sienna and no other vehicle. I would recommend the Sienna to anyone.
Cons: The interior upholstery could be a bit darker
Overall review: I love this van. I would recommend it to anyone.

Perfect for Our Family of Five by roemer7 from Lincoln, IL on 09/15/2011. Trim: 2011 Toyota Sienna LE 8-Pass V6, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: The radio is great. Having a back-up camera is a nice extra. Seating all three kids in the second row is great. The Sunshine Radian car seats fits the small middle jump-seat perfectly. My wife appreciates the purse storage area. We love the white color with the Bisque interior.
Cons: The vehicle fabric is very light colored (Bisque), but we don't have any stains yet. (A can of Scotch Guard for $5 is a must) Road noise is a bit more pronounced that I like, but still much quieter than our 2003 Odyssey. While the back-up camera is nice, I find it hard to view in it's current location. I would have preferred an LCD screen in the rear view mirror. The gas gauge is hard to see. It's located in the upper right corner of the instrument panel. It's hidden by either the steering wheel or your hand. The tracks in the floor for the second row make it hard to find all-weather floor mats that work well with the van. The tracks make for a lot of mat-moving when sliding the seats.
Overall review: For our family of 5 (three kids under the age of 6) this van is perfect. We looked at the 2011 Odyssey and the 2011 Sienna before choosing the Sienna. While we loved the Odyssey, we couldn't justify spending almost $4k more on the Odyssey with the same appointments. The Sienna is quiet, roomy, and very well equipped with the LE package. Having all three kids in the second row is great. The second row slides back very far and gives us room for all our "extras" while keeping them within reach of the front row. The space allow for boxes or coolers to sit just behind the front seats and still leave plenty of room for second row legroom. I like the split third row seat. We've used the split to access the third row through the tail gate.

A Minivan...But not bad at all!! by Tampa Couple on 08/16/2011. Trim: 2011 Toyota Sienna LE 8-Pass V6, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: While it is still a minivan, Toyota has at least made an attempt to make it look a little more interesting.
Cons: Some cheap plastic components used in the interior.
Overall review: I needed more space between the first and second row seats and got that with the new long travel second row seats in the Sienna. Their is lots of room to store stuff. Engine has good power and new six speed trany is smooth. We also love the Bluetooth phone.
