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.

Reliability

We expect the 2022 Sienna will have about average reliability when compared to the average new car. This prediction is based on data from 2021 models. Select the used car model year to see reported issues with those similar past models.

Reliability indicates how models have performed in the past, providing the basis for predicting how the vehicles will hold up in the year ahead. These charts provide the most comprehensive reliability information available to consumers. Based on information received from our latest subscriber survey for over 300,000 vehicles, our reliability history charts give you a rundown on how 2000 through 2021 vehicles are holding up in 17 potential trouble spots, ranging from the engine, transmission, and brakes to power equipment and the electrical system. NA indicates that we did not receive a large enough sample size to provide data for a specific year. An X indicates that the vehicle was not manufactured for a specific year.

Owner Reported Trouble Spots

The Reliability score is based on our latest subscriber survey of 2007 Toyota Sienna owners. The owner comments describe problems respondents experienced with this vehicle.

Suspension

Shocks or struts, ball joints, tie rods, wheel bearings, alignment, steering linkage (includes rack and pinion), power steering (pumps and hoses, leaks), wheel balance, springs or torsion bars, bushings, electronic or air suspension.

What Owners Say

Alignment

"It goes out of alignment quickly"

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

"They have been unable to properly align the front wheels - always off by a bit. New tires, but loud road noise over 25 mph, very load at 65-70mph"

"Kept pulling to the right"

Anonymous, TX (2007 Toyota Sienna 3.5-L V6)

"we were told by mechanics our car cannot be completely aligned because some factory built-in system was not calibrated well. The resulting problems are when we make turns the wheels sometimes bumped the curbside"

"Steering pulls to one side slightly. Dealer sent it to repair, but problem still present."

Ball joints

"Lower ball joint and Tie rod ends were worn at 170K"

Henri P., MA (2007 Toyota Sienna XLE 3.5-L V6)
Bushings

"As the steering wheel bushing has aged, it has created a little more play in the steering. This is not really noticeable for the driver, but the sensors in the car will indicate that the car is going in to a slide by applying the brakes to correct a problem that does not exist. This only occurs on winding roads out sharp turns."

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

"Most of the plastic bushings have or are reaching end of life. Replacement costs are not trivial. For comparison our 1996 Mercedes replaced 2013 did not have these issues, neither did 2007 plymouth minivan (232,000mi) replaced 2010 with Sienna"

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.

"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."

"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."
