2007 Toyota Sienna Owner Satisfaction - Consumer Reports
Armed with a smooth and powerful V6 engine, as well as improved braking, this version of the Sienna was our top-rated minivan of its time. Because it was also the only one available with all-wheel drive, we tested both front- and AWD models. Our readers reported the AWD's run-flat tires wore quickly and were expensive to replace. A slightly stiffer ride and a loss of one mpg overall are other sacrifices for AWD.

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.

What Owners Say

"The only real problem is oversteer in emergency turn with braking at high speed. This sets up fishtailing as I correct. Almost lost control a few times due to the fishtailing. With warning I could have avoided it, but it was unexpected."

M L., TX (2007 Toyota Sienna)

"The vehicle tends to drift at highway speeds. Very soft steering."

PETER B., AL (2007 Toyota Sienna)

"Love the vehicle just wish handling was a little sharper as compared to the Honda Odyssey"

Anonymous, WI (2007 Toyota Sienna)

"The programming for the transmission could be improved. Sometimes it seems to search for the correct gear."

"Much better value than an SUV, unless you go off road and nobody I know does."

ORAL P., AB (2007 Toyota Sienna)

"For a vehicle this size, the handling is surprisingly adept."

MICHAEL E., IA (2007 Toyota Sienna)

"It has a stiff accelerator and rabbit-starts from a stop. Wastes gas and is like a truck in that action. Drives well once it gets going."

"It has enough power to get through the Sierras in CA, loaded with gear. fuel economy is lower than I would like, but given what it does, and how long it has done so, I am very satisfied."

James M., CA (2007 Toyota Sienna)

"After all these years - we've owned it for 7 years - the Sienna still responds with gusto when called for on the highway. Hit the throttle to pass another car or merge into the highway and you can feel the horsepower under you. We've driven the car across the country twice this year, and our son has driven it all over the country two summers in a row. The ride is still comfortable, handling reasonably responsive for a minivan. Everything works: A/C, CD changer, radio, etc. I guess what stands ou..."

"The sienna handles well, accelerates well for a mini van but is a little noisy in the cabin, a small factor in a really good vehicle."

Daniel C., NJ (2007 Toyota Sienna)

"Acceleration and handling proved excellent through the years I have owned it. Right now I plan to drive it until the wheels fall off."

George K., FL (2007 Toyota Sienna)

"Cruise control is not tight. May overspeed. Traction when starting from red light on hills sometimes slips on wet pavement."

"It is sometimes difficult to change lanes on the right side. I am looking forward to changing this car for a newer one that has sensors on the right side so I can more easily change lanes to the right. For some reason, tires in this car seem to wear out faster than I would have anticipated."

Al G., CA (2007 Toyota Sienna)

"Abundant power for passing, towing, and hauling. this minivan does everything and looks as good as a mini van can look!"

Anonymous, NH (2007 Toyota Sienna)

"Once when traveling about 70 I had to turn sharply to the left and brake. It oversteered, the nose dove, and it fishtailed. It took about four swerves to get it under control. Very scary. I have been more careful about avoiding such situations since, but one other was a near miss. I have antilock breaks but not steering control. Seems to me the front springs are too soft, given the soft sidewalls on the tires."

M L., TX (2007 Toyota Sienna)

"The brakes are defective - the pads and rotors have been replaced multiple times yet the rotors go 'out of round' sometimes within weeks and never last more than a few months before braking becomes dangerous."

Cliff B., ON (2007 Toyota Sienna)

"It has never had a problem. Handling has been very good even when fully loaded. Acceleration has always been good. It has responded well when asked for more power in passing and climbing hills."

"My Sienna is a great compromise for value and price quotient. I have only one disappointment. This vehicle has only had one major annoyance. I had to replace each of all four coil springs on the mini-van. Handling is comfortable and predictable. The six cylinder is remarkable for its acceleration on demand. The comfort of the interior is great. The space whether for passengers or "things" is wonderful. I wouldn't change anything other than have a better set of springs in the suspension. I'm thinking of a heavy duty set of springs. Perhaps a stronger suspension and ride."
