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.

Includes acceleration and handling

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)

ORAL P., AB (2007 Toyota Sienna)

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

MICHAEL E., IA (2007 Toyota Sienna)

FRANCIS G., CA (2007 Toyota Sienna)

"I wish the seats were wider and that there was more leg room"

Anonymous, AZ (2007 Toyota Sienna)

"Great leather, and very comfortable."

BRANDON B., MD (2007 Toyota Sienna)

FRANCESCO V., CA (2007 Toyota Sienna)

"Seats are roomy and comfortable."

MARLENE M., IN (2007 Toyota Sienna)

What Owners Say

"major Transmission failure at low milage with really poor service from Toyota, second vehicle from Toyota that they didn't stand behind their product with a MAJOR failure within months of warranty expiration and low milage that Toyota would not help in any way with and very rude customer service. I will never buy another Toyota."

"I expected so much more from Toyota. Within the first year of buying my new van the leather seats started to crack and I was told that there was nothing they would do about it. Other issues included.... radio needed to be replaced twice, the far rear window fell out, the rear sliding door cable rusted out and the door no longer functions, the main springs rusted out and the entire vehicle collapsed, The rubber part of the vehicle emissions system failed and was not covered by guarantee, The r"

KURT R., AB (2007 Toyota Sienna)

"Safety, reliability, towing capability, cost of ownership and fuel economy put our previous Chrysler minivans to shame"

- D., DE (2007 Toyota Sienna)

"I purchased this vehicle used. When I purchased it the odometer read about 25,000 miles. It now reads about 122,000 miles. In my opinion the car runs and feels like a new car. I am careful to follow the maintenance schedule in the owner manual."

GEORGE S., CA (2007 Toyota Sienna)

"Overall build quality is disappointing to other Toyotas I have owned. Previous Toyotas were built in Japan so vs. USA for 2007 Sienna. Not sure if that's a factor. Outside squeak which my be coming from front passenger side still not identified. Steering wheel squeaks, and noises that just get annoying. Had a few recall repairs. Paint easily chipped damaged and more little rust spots then I would like."

"Used veh. reasonably price for mileage."

HARRY M., ON (2007 Toyota Sienna)

"While the cost of our Sienna was higher than similar mini-vans at the time, the tradeoff has been the extremely reliable operation, no major breakdowns or system malfunctions, so our cost of ownership is very low. I'm definitely getting all I paid for and more!"

How it looks inside and out

What Owners Say

"It still looks good after.nine years."

Anonymous, OH (2007 Toyota Sienna)

"i think the quality of the wheel rims is terrible. The rusty paint peeling is unsightly and probably unsafe and they don't warranty the problem although everyone with a Toyota van that i have spoken to has the same problem"

SUSAN H., AB (2007 Toyota Sienna)

"Still looks up to date even though it is nearly 10 years old."

Anonymous, WA (2007 Toyota Sienna)

"The bull-nose front is very flat and collects bugs which are almost impossible to clean off. Otherwise car is comfortable and very useful in several configurations. The floor mats should have been secured with metal hooks rather than the flimsy plastic clips which will not stay in place."
