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.

Wheel balance

"This van is hard on tires on the front end. It seems as though the factory specified tires are too low of a load rating. We rotate the tires every 5k miles and rebalance them as well. We buy Michelin tires exclusively due to poor longevity and results with other brands. I believe the Michelins have a higher load rating as well. They were recommended by our tire and service shop. We have needed to replace tires on this van more frequently than on other vehicles we have owned"

I recently had the brakes and tires replaced but the problem persisted and in the last week it was very noisy and persistent. The noise was affected by movement of the steering wheel. I finally made an appointment with the dealer after trying aftermarket repair shops and they replaced the right front wheel bearing after doing a road test.

Anonymous, MA (2007 Toyota Sienna LE 3.5-L V6)

"The driver side window lets air into the car causing a feeling of pulling or resistance. I've tried gently pushing it thinking it is maybe just not tightly sealed, but nothing works. It doesn't seem to accelerate when I am driving as effortlessly as past cars I've had , and it feels like it is air pressure that is keeping it from driving smoothly. It is annoying and makes the whole ride cumbersome. I feel like it affects steering and overall responsiveness of the car. My dealership said they would do a road test and I left it there for hours, and they said 2 highly trained techs rode it on the highway and neither detected any air issue; they didn't even feel or hear the air, according to their report. My husband and 2 adult children who drive regularly, think it is significant. Last year a service worker at the dealer told me that this is a problem with Toyota Highlanders, and that the dealer won't do anything about it because it is due to the design of the model. Meanwhile, my husband's Honda CRV, which he bought months before for thousands less than my Highlander, has been a pleasure to drive with no problems whatsoever. We both drive the cars interchangeably, so it is very obvious going from the Honda's quiet smooth ride to a my Toyota's labored one."

CD player

"Unit turns itself on at random times. Has happened frequently in one week, then not at all for a few weeks, then somewhat regularly throughout the next few weeks, with bursts of inactivity. Started when vehicle was 7 years old (i.e. 2014). In 2014-2016, it would start playing the CD/DVD that was left in the unit. In late 2016 through present (2018), it ejects whatever CD/DVD is left in the unit and turns on the radio. Volume when turns itself on is consistently one of two levels, no perceived variations between. Sometimes the volume is loud (e.g. I would rate it at 8 on scale of 1 to 10, with 10 representing the loudest level). Most of the time it is only moderately loud (e.g. I would rate it at 5 out of 10). The levels are consistent. but there are only the two (2) different levels with no variation. We could represent loud with a letter X because what we categorize as loudit is the same volume. Randomly occurs, regardless how long you have been driving or how long it has been unused in the garage; regardless whether stored in the garage or outdoors in the driveway; regardless whether we use the vehicle frequently or infrequently during the week (same extends when comparing at a monthly level); regardless whether you are driving in stop-an-go city traffic and on long non-stop highway trips."

He said it would just be like driving the Toyota Corolla i first learned to drive, 50 years ago! so i just ignore the light and continue taking the vehicle in for regular scheduled service and routine maintenance. i was SO fortunate to have John to figure this out at the time, because he has since left that dealership. i can only hope his replacement is half as competent as John."

Roman P., ON (2007 Toyota Sienna CE 3.5-L V6)

"The Check Engine light and the Oil pressure warning light both came on when my son was driving the car. He had it checked out and it turned out the Engine Oil Cooler Line had failed and was leaking oil. Replacement cost was quite high. On doing some research I learned that this had at one time been a service campaign item or recall, I don't remember which, but either way, our car was way past the maximum mileage to qualify for that. I was, however, able to purchase the part on Amazon, for less money and faster delivery than my mechanic could! Apparently it's a hot item. Labor was still the kicker. It took 4-5 days, total, for the car to be repaired. My son is an active musician and student, spends a lot of time driving around the area with drums loaded in the back of the Sienna, so it was a challenge being without it."
