Previously owned a Dodge Caravan. Worthless van in my opinion. Replaced 3 transmissions in the van (1 we had to pay for) and couldn't wait to get rid of it. Our Sienna on the other hand has been a great vehicle. Purchased it new in fall of 1998 and now have over 150,000 miles on it. Runs great, looks great and get about 21 miles to the gallon in the city. We replaced timing belt at 107,000 miles and have just done regular tune ups as required. Had to replace passenger side window motor but other than that no major repairs. Great van to own and drive and still looks good today. Would definitely recommend to someone to purchase if looking for a dependable used van. Just make sure before you purchase the Sienna that if it has over 100,000 miles that the timing belt has been replaced. This is about a $1,000 bill because you also need to replace water pump at same time.

My wife and I purchased this vehicle used with 99K miles on it about three years past. Since then we have moved and make several drives a month back to see family and friends. The vehicle has been across country 3 wonderful round trips. There were no problems at 180K until we unfortunately encountered a deer. VERY SAFE IN A CRASH! Negative: Cheap plastic door handles that crack and break easily. You can find them readily online though. (hmmmm). Not as much rear cargo room in this van as our previous (Windstar). Positive: RELIABILITY / QUALITY / HANDLING / LONGEVITY. Not a bad trade off as I can fix the door handles. Overall: We really miss it, so we will be buying another Toyota!

This has been a fantastic car. I am pregnant with our third child and I love that I don't have to bend and reach to get my older two buckled into their car seats. It handles very well and has been great on gas milage, which is important as our budget for fuel is very limited.

I bought this vehicle in June of 1999, 2 weeks before the 2000 models came out. I can't imagine a better experience. Never had a problem! Never had to worry, "will it start up...will I be late for work etc". My Sienna's been through most of the east coast, including Canada twice, Tennessee, Mississippi, Arkansas, and always brought my family back home safely. Over 136,000 miles and still chigging!!!

We loved this minivan and had a hard time giving it up. We bought it because of its safety rating and efficient gas mileage (minivan with best gas mileage). Since we no longer need this much space, and don't take as many car trips we decided to downsize. The Sienna was reliable, and so comfortable for long trips! The fold up back seat in these cars makes it very convenient to switch from a 7-passenger van to a 4-seater with lots of luggage space. This is the best car for families of 4 or more!

Among the best mini-vans out there.

by from Cincinnati, OH on January 4, 2011

Most everything was near perfect and reliable on this mini-van and quite capable of going another 150,000 miles with a little luck and car.
