This iteration of the Sienna rides comfortably and quietly. Further, its powertrain is smooth and strong and returns good fuel economy. The finely detailed cabin is comfortable. All-wheel drive is optional, but we've had many complaints about the powertrain's fast-wearing run-flat tires. Although it has sound handling, the Sienna could have been more agile and braking performance was disappointing.

What Owners Say

"acceleration and handling were good, but the van was somewhat underpowered on long upgrades"

Anonymous, AB (2006 Toyota Sienna)

"Adequate acceleration and handles more like a sedan rather than a van."

Charles G., WA (2006 Toyota Sienna)

Paul G., CA (2006 Toyota Sienna)

"Frequently, there is a bit of a lag as the transmission downshifts during a turn or slowdown, so when you accelerate again, it's jerky. Must be endemic to the model year, my neighbor's does the same thing. Otherwise, it shifts smoothly and handles quite predictably, especially for a van. I've pushed it pretty hard on cloverleafs and it just doesn't care."

"6 cylinder engine is quiet and provides adequate power."

Charles G., WA (2006 Toyota Sienna)

"Prior to buying this minivan I owned a 2003 Honda Odyssey. My Sienna, although it is the top of the line XLE Ltd, doesn't seem to have as good stabilizer bars to cut down on side winds affecting handling. I was used to the acceleration the Odyssey's 3.5 L engine had. The Sienna's 3.3 L doesn't have quite the oomph the Honda did."

"ride comferd"

WOLFGANG R., ON (2006 Toyota Sienna)

"The Sienna's electronic throttle is very unintuitive. It prevents the driver from modulating it, either giving lazy acceleration or making the engine scream. Another frustrating behavior is that after slowing below ten miles per hour, it drops to first gear when the driver touches the throttle. This causes the vehicle to buck. These characteristics have remained from when the car was new."

"Mine is an XLE Limited version with leather seats. I bought it used and got an excellent deal from a Toyota dealer or I would not have gotten one with leather. I live in NE Texas and this summer is a perfect example of why. We have had a weeks long string of 100 - 110 degree days. You can imagine how hot those seats get. Only because I park with the windshield towards the sun and use a reflective sun shield am I able to sit on them when I first get in. I understand later models offered cooled seats, a valuable option in this climate. The other complaint I have is age & mileage related -- squeaks & rattles -- though I can deal with them rather than replacing the vehicle."

"This minivan has been great over 13+ years, purchased in October 2005. Seats are nicer than current new Sienna models. I believe Toyota went down one notch in middle and rear seat comfort (shape and form). 2006 Siena has been great, reliability, value, comfort, luggage varying capacity. Latest 2016+ Siennas feel much more stable driving (hugging road) compared to 2006. 2006 seats have better variable position arm rests and a little more upscale touch with middle seat Velcro flap hiding child seat anchors. Newer seats may have a longer slide fore/aft than old seats. I have seat location fixed with a comopromise for middle and rear seat foot space. Would like to see a flexible 40-20-40 bench seat. May consider upscale interior SUV AWD with bench seat and 3rd row seat. I’d prefer a stronger more aggressively tuned AWD system that provides true torque vectoring with rear wheels having torque power on all corners!!!"

It is roomy and seats 8 adults comfortably. I also like the fact that the 3rd row of seats fold down and the other seats can be removed.

"My wife has Trigeminal Neuralgia which is aggrevated by road noise/vibration. We drove every minivan on the market at the time of our purchase and none compared to this vehicle. After 100k mi it drives nearly as well as it did the day we drove it home the first time. We have it detailed once a yr inside and out and people cant believe its 10yrs old. Regular service visits and weekly washings keep it in top shape despite roadsalts in winter and dusty summer driving from Denver to Boise to Spokane"

"We love this van for hauling people, we drive 7 adults in perfect comfort. We also use it to haul loads of stuff. Fold up the seats and it's a truck, 4x8 lumber, full size bed, sofas, tarps full of branches and yard waste, you name it, we hauled it."

"I got a 0% interest loan from Toyota. Paid the car off in 5 years. Replaced tires twice and brakes once. I have had no other problems with the vehicle. It takes ourselves and all our friends every where we go. I couldn’t ask for a better value."

Ron H., CA (2006 Toyota Sienna)

"This vehicle has been a wonderful companion through career moves, birth of daughter (Sienna is 12 & daughter is 12--is the only "limo" she has known), It is exceedingly practical for hauling people and every kind of 'stuff'. I have moved my family and helped others move. I have been careful to have major 90,000 mile complete servicing and do oil changes every 3-4000 miles. I never check the oil. The radio has been a disappointment and there are a few body trim issues. It shares the headlight clouding problem with many other cars. Mine have to be polished every few months. It doesn't look so pretty anymore, but it runs very well. If and when I start looking for another car, a Toyota and perhaps the Sienna will be top of my list. I may keep it and go for a Prius for trip gas mileage. Highly recommend."

"This is a great car. It is reliable, comfortable, handles at a touch and is nice and quiet. I have only one complaint and that is that the dealership where I get maintenance done and when i need things fixed is 3 1/2 hours away. In 1985 I looked up the most reliable car in Consumer Reports and found that Toyota was at the top of the list. I bought a pickup. It lasted 187,000 miles. I traded it for a 1990 pickup and put 300,000 on it. Traded that one in on a 2003 sienna minivan. Hit a feral hog and totalled it at 150,000 miles. Bought this 2006 sienna and fell in love. Great car!"

"12 years and 113,000 miles, and I have hardly had to put any money into it other than normal replacement items. I hear about people with much newer vehicles having to take their car to the shop a lot, and if out of warranty, pay out a lot in repairs, and I feel my Sienna has done very well by me. My life situation has changed, and I probably will not replace with another minivan, but this has been a very good vehicle."

Warren B., IL (2006 Toyota Sienna)

"It is 11 years old. A/C still works. The suspension and feel really hasn't changed much from he day I bought it. It is a real people and thing mover. I can fit a couch in the back after the seats are removed that would not fit in the back of a 6 foot box pickup truck, and unlike the truck it's out of the rain."
