The Toyota Sienna affords a comfortable ride and a smooth, energetic powertrain returning respectable fuel economy. Expect 20 mpg overall from the front-wheel-drive version. If you need an all-wheel-drive minivan in this model year, Sienna is your only choice. Be apprised however, those four-driven wheels sacrifice one mpg and dictate run-flat tires.

What Owners Say

"you know. it is a big box and it turns with a mild sway. but that what I bought. A bid box to haul stuff."

"Always is great when you need to accelerate and the car performs. My car handles very well in snowy and rainy conditions. Great anti-skid feature."

JERRY B., CO (2012 Toyota Sienna)

"acceleration"

M M., NY (2012 Toyota Sienna)

"Accelleration is great. Handling is fine. The steering is a bit too light and touchy at high speeds which can be tiring/annoying on long trips as you're constantly having to make minor corrections to keep going in a straight line. Light steering is great for navigating parking lots though."

Anonymous, NC (2012 Toyota Sienna)

"I still have an issue with the turn signal. I cannot hear it and I am not deaf. Sometimes I go down the street and thru intersections with it on. Very unsafe in my opinion. Toyota doesn't seem to be concerned. It may be an issue that is the deciding factor on buying another one. My GMC truck had a warning buzzer if the let you know it was on for an extended time. I could also hear it."

"This vehicle is very smooth driving. Passengers are very pleasantly surprised when they ride in our van"

NORINE S., ON (2012 Toyota Sienna)

"It handles well overall, my only complaint would be that the acceleration pedal is rather touchy and sometimes putting minimal pressure on it causes it to lurch forward while other times you have to put quite a bit of pressure on it to get it to the acceleration point you want it to be at."

Anonymous, ON (2012 Toyota Sienna)

"Of course it's a box so you can't expect to much. But excelleration is adequate, passing is actually very good, and handling is good enough for what I use this car for...a road trip vehicle."

JOHN H., MO (2012 Toyota Sienna)

"In general acceleration is very good, however, after slowing to approximately 5-10 miles per hour and making a left hand u-turn, acceleration is consistantly uneven and spasmodic. It has been this way since the day of purchase and until the current date - 8/5/2016."

GREG M., CA (2012 Toyota Sienna)

"When I look over my left shoulder I can't see cars in my blind spot. I think the side airbag curtain is causing the problem. Other than that, the Sienna is fun to drive."

Anonymous, OR (2012 Toyota Sienna)

"powerful engine"

Anonymous, VA (2012 Toyota Sienna)

"Acceleration is fine.l Handling seems a little mushy - not as sharp (immediately responsive) as some vehicles I have had in the past."

John H., WI (2012 Toyota Sienna)

"My husband and I were just commenting yesterday on how impressive the acceleration is. When you push the gas, the van immediately accelerates, and there is a great deal of power. It makes passing other vehicles extremely easy and safe."

Eileen A., NY (2012 Toyota Sienna)

"Satisfied with engine (good acceleration). As far as handling you have to concentrate and keep both hands on the steering wheel because the vehicle tends to wander all over the road. (Have tried tire balancing, tire rotations, and 4 wheel alignments, and the vehicle still wanders a lot)."

"Love the short turning radius, easy to park, navigate turns, etc."

Howard G., MA (2012 Toyota Sienna)

"I've just recently noticed that when I begin to accelerate after a stop, the van acts as though it isn't getting the gas quickly so it vibrates some. Maybe I'm just giving it more gas than it needs to accelerate?"

"excellent acceleration from a stop and while moving"

Anonymous, NC (2012 Toyota Sienna)

"The front wheels tend to spin very easily on slippery (especially snow covered) roads. The traction control system makes the issues worse and I many times need to turn it off to get going. However on dry roads, I really like the acceleration of the vehicle."

Anonymous, MI (2012 Toyota Sienna)

"good acceleration and handles very well in curves"

Anonymous, BC (2012 Toyota Sienna)

"When I "ask" it to accelerate "off the line" it is quite responsive -- this is helped by the all-wheel drive, there never is any wheels screeching even at maximum acceleration. Handles smoothly. EXCELLENT turning radius, better than that of many much smaller vehicles. Can easily get up to speed (for example, when merging back onto the freeway from a rest stop) even when carrying 1000 lbs plus of cargo. V"

"For an AWD van, it is very responsive both in acceleration and steering. Suspension feels tight, with no sway, but not so stiff as to ride hard."

Campbell R., CA (2012 Toyota Sienna)

"This is our second Sienna (our old one was a 2008, but only front-wheel-drive), and its even better than the 2008. I'm not expecting race-car level of grip (that's why we also have a MINI), but it certainly can rip around corners and is a blast on mountain roads. The acceleration won't lengthen your arms either, but it can get out of its own way and it certainly can merge onto any highway without me having to worry."

David S., CO (2012 Toyota Sienna)

"The car has trouble getting into the right gear when going up hills or when trying to get past 20km/h. You really have to push it to stay up to speed when going up a hill. The gas pedal is far too sensitive - push your foot down a touch too hard and it zooms off much faster than you'd anticipated. The handling is not bad for a minivan."

Anonymous, ON (2012 Toyota Sienna)

"There is a lag between the moment when you press the gaz pedal and the moment it actually accelerates, especially if already at speed."

Nicolas T., QC (2012 Toyota Sienna)

"Acceleration is good , not great, but I don't need to get to the next stop light that fast. It's handling is firm , not quick, and even slower when packed with people and gear, but I just drive more carefully."

Comfort

Includes seats, climate control, noise, and ride

What Owners Say

"Front passenger seat is too low. Wife has back pain when rides in this seat."

PAUL S., KY (2012 Toyota Sienna)

"The cloth seats are the worst fabric I have ever encountered. That's saying a lot at my age. The car has lots of road noise. I don't like the split driver-passenger climate control system. The driver sets the fan for both, and the passenger gets to set their own temperature. In the heat and cold, that is not enough!"

"It is my wife's car. She likes it except for the recall notices on the passenger air bag and sliding door. These are scheduled for repair by the dealer on 7-23-2017."

"High reliability, handles excellent, very comfortable ride."

Scott G., MA (2012 Toyota Sienna)

"Our Sienna has been wonderful. We have used it for hauling household goods and small furniture over both local and long haul (1,500 mile) trips. It has an extremely comfortable ride, handles very well, has decent gas mileage, and has been very reliable. Biggest repair has been warranty replacement of the CD/Navigation system to to malfunction of the CD changer. I love the flexibility of the cabin for both people and cargo hauling."

Leo O., VA (2012 Toyota Sienna)

"It wasn't expensive given the features I needed in order to transport a powerchair. I needed power doors, including tailgate, and AWD. The price was reasonable given those features."

Styling

How it looks inside and out

What Owners Say

"IT IS SLEEK AND SEEMS TO BE AERODYNAMIC."

MOHAMED B., CA (2012 Toyota Sienna)

"It is a rather unstylish car that looks like a big blob. It's back lights are unattractive and it's bumpers are very round and large. I much prefer the styling of the Honda Odyssey which looks much more sleek and stylish. The interior looks cheap and there are big columns on either side of the front windshield that obstruct your vision. Often when driving a whole person can be obstructed from view by the column and has come close to causing accidents."

"Excellent paint. Very attractive exterior."

GARY D., KS (2012 Toyota Sienna)

"When we were looking to buy a van, the cow catcher look of the front , almost stopped us from trying it out. Once I drove it, I was able to overlook the appearance ."

"Visibility from the Drivers seat is not as good as my Honda Odyssey that I had before this van. I have more blind spots."

JEFF P., GA (2012 Toyota Sienna)

"The color of the Sienna that arrived was an unattractive color, very much unlike the one in the pictures provided by Toyota."

GEORGE H., MN (2012 Toyota Sienna)

"The center console shape is very good in that it does not cut into legroom. The 2016 model enlarged the center console width to accommodate a larger LCD screen and now cuts into legroom."

"Interior is cheap plastic for an over-all well designed auto"

"Unlike other Toyota's we have owned, the paint on the 2012 Sienna chips easily."

J F., VA (2012 Toyota Sienna)

"OK but dependability is biggest plus"
