2000 Toyota Sienna Owner Satisfaction - Consumer Reports
The Sienna is one of the most quiet and comfortable minivans available, but it's one of the smallest in terms of interior room. With a smooth, refined, and responsive powertrain, it's an excellent choice when interior spaciousness isn't a high priority.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

Driving Experience

Includes acceleration and handling

What Owners Say

"I bought this van in the fall of 1999, entirely on the evaluation of CR (I'd never owned or driven a van before). As I recall, CR said it was the first van to ride and drive like a good sedan. That's been my experience with it - it's smooth, stable, goes where you point it, accelerates briskly on the highway. Nova Scotia, where I live, is notable for high winds off the Atlantic, especially in winter, and despite its big side profile it never seems troubled by cross-winds. I couldn't be happie"

Priscilla W., CA (2000 Toyota Sienna)

"Our 2000 Toyota Sienna has had some small problems along the way (window motors burn out over time in ALL cars), but all of the problems have been things I have fixed myself with knowledge off the internet. I'm not a mechanic, so if I can do it just about anyone else can. Since we didn't have any major problems, this car has really gone the distance (over 270k) and has been great for lugging gear all over the place."

"Good durability however engine was replaced under warranty for oil sludge problem. Some initial fit and finish issues which dealer would not address tainted the ownership experience (drivers window became scratched because something inside was rubbing - dealer said i was sand caught in rubber window gasket (what BS). CD player would skip due to overeating - design flaw in dash and placement of CD player."

And it has proven to be very accommodating of various loads because the second row captains chairs and the third row seats are individually removable. I have hauled furniture and lumber as well as many people. Most recently we remove one second row chair and put our dog's crate and our dog in its place for 9 hour trips."

"Overall a great van BUT - I needed to pay attention to oil sludge issue and got a new engine under warranty because I had the proof that I TOLD THEM (Dealer service) to check for this constantly. Even then they tried to weasel out until I threatened legal action. However, the rest of the car has lasted surprising long thanks also to yearly applications of Crown Rust Control. I am now in the marketplace for a new vehicle because more things are failing (handles etc.) due to age....It's still going!?!?!? At the price point of a new vehicle - who knows?"

Tim S., ON (2000 Toyota Sienna)

"With regular maintenance, my Toyota Sienna just won't quit."

Lincoln L., AZ (2000 Toyota Sienna)

"Right from the beginning there were serious problems. Once past the warranty some problems were too expensive to fix, such as a burned out light on the dashboard. The car has a loud screeching sound (for years) and Toyota cannot figure out what it is, even though they have heard it."
