The Toyota Sienna delivers 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 all-wheel-drive in this model year Sienna is the only choice. However, those four-driven wheels sacrifice one mpg and dictate run-flat tires. Handling falls short of being agile or engaging, even with the sporty SE version.

The Reliability score is based on our latest subscriber survey of 2015 Toyota Sienna owners. The owner comments describe problems respondents experienced with this vehicle.

In-car Electronics

CD or DVD players, radio, speakers, GPS, communication system (e.g., OnStar), display screen freezes or goes blank, phone pairing (e.g. Bluetooth), voice control commands, steering wheel controls, portable music device interface (e.g., iPod/MP3 player), backup or other camera/sensors.

What Owners Say

Backup or other camera/sensors

"The blind spot monitor malfunctioned and had to be replaced. It was covered by the warranty"

Anonymous, MI (2015 Toyota Sienna Limited 3.5-L V6)

"Camera somehow got moved. Took it to dealer and they said it couldn't be replaced. Camera is still out of alignment"

William J., TX (2015 Toyota Sienna XLE 3.5-L V6)

"Software issue. Radio and navigation would freeze, then eventually reboot. Unsafe when it happened while navigating in an unfamiliar area"

Anonymous, NC (2015 Toyota Sienna Limited 3.5-L V6)

"Vehicle entertainment system has integrated GPS. The system routinely freezes and then appears to reboot. When this happens, Radio station has to be reset, Phone calls will be dropped and any destination being mapped by GPS will have to be entered again."

Anonymous, NJ (2015 Toyota Sienna XLE 3.5-L V6)

"Volume went up on the radio and we had no control for adjusting controls or shutting the system off."

Richard B., CA (2015 Toyota Sienna XLE 3.5-L V6)
Display screen goes blank

"Screen display goes dark, radio controls did not function, problem very intermittent, touching screen and everything works fine. Had problem in to dealer and it is difficult to recreate problem. Problem occurred three times in 3 years."

Lester J., CA (2015 Toyota Sienna XLE 3.5-L V6)

"After driving for 30 minutes or more while using the factory GPS the screen would freeze. After a brief self restart the screen would continue to malfunction"

Ryan A., FL (2015 Toyota Sienna XLE 3.5-L V6)

"Shortly after starting the car (usually after it sat overnight), the entire screen would go blank, shut down, and reboot. The dealership concluded that it was a communication issue with the iPhone we had it paired with. They updated the system and it hasn't happened since then"

Anonymous, IL (2015 Toyota Sienna LE 3.5-L V6)

Anonymous, AL (2015 Toyota Sienna XLE 3.5-L V6)

"Sometimes while driving the Entune touch screen system will go black and have to reboot. This issue doesn't happen often but when it does it is very inconvenient and annoying because it interrupts the music or anything else it is being used for and requires input from the driver to get back to music and/or whatever you were doing. It seems to happen randomly for no reason."

Steven R., ID (2015 Toyota Sienna XLE 3.5-L V6)
External music device interface (e.g., smart phone, MP3 player)

"First, it is not user friendly -very difficult to use and if the owner does not have a smart phone it is useless. Audio inputs do not always connect. Preset stations disappear. Generally it is unreliable and very difficult to use. Perhaps if I was 50 years younger it would be a different story"

George R., FL (2015 Toyota Sienna XLE 3.5-L V6)
In-dash navigation system (GPS)

"System Stops working from time to time when I am driving. Toyota asks $50 to diagnose the problem"

"I have read that the gps antenna needs to be replaced, but Toyota replaced every small thing else until our warranty ran out and then would not repair it correctly under warranty."

Richard J., NC (2015 Toyota Sienna Limited 3.5-L V6)

"The main problem is the inability to update the navigation and maps without purchasing a new memory card every year. Most navigation and maps can be updated online but with Toyota you have to spend $150 every year for updates."

Christopher M., CA (2015 Toyota Sienna XLE 3.5-L V6)

"The in-dash navigation is completely out of date, missing roads, incorrect speed limits, and there is no reasonable way to get a simple map update. I think you can pay the dealer $250 to put in a CD and update it, but I'm not sure they even support this anymore and it will be out of date at the time it is installed. Very disappointing for a car that is only a few years old."

Steven R., ID (2015 Toyota Sienna XLE 3.5-L V6)
Phone pairing (e.g., Bluetooth)

"It is difficult to switch between phones connected via bluetooth. The current phone connected via Bluetooth will reconnect. If you want a different phone connected, itdoes not always connect the new phone."

Eric C., MI (2015 Toyota Sienna LE 3.5-L V6)

"Poor interface resulting in callers not hearing very well at all, with much static and many times inability to understand the conversation. Been back to Toyota several times, with no improvement. Been told it is an inherent problem on the minivans"

Rear entertainment system (e.g., DVD player, rear screen)

"System would not read DVD's or Blu-Ray discs. Had to take it dealer and they got it working again"

Anonymous, TN (2015 Toyota Sienna XLE 3.5-L V6)

"We purchased our vehicle with the ceiling mounted DVD player. The player itself works well, however the latch that hold the screen up in the stowed position has never worked properly and every time the car hit and small bump the screen opens and blocks the rear-view mirror. The dealer told us there is no repair possible to the screen latch."

Rebecca P., FL (2015 Toyota Sienna XLE 3.5-L V6)
Software update fixes

"Aside from the navigation software I discovered that our vehicle had entertainment software. I was able to download and install the newest entertainment software. I then discovered that after owning the vehicle for four years and having all the vehicle service done at the dealership no dealership had ever updated the software."

Christopher M., CA (2015 Toyota Sienna XLE 3.5-L V6)
Voice control commands

"The voice recognition capability is absolutely hopeless. I have trained the system with my voice numerous times, to no avail."

W D., QC (2015 Toyota Sienna LE 3.5-L V6)

"Voice recognition is poor at best frustrating and distracting the driver. Most options can't be used in motion making the system useless. Toyota states it is for safety, but I believe it make sit less safe; a passenger cant use the system easy"

James G., MA (2015 Toyota Sienna XLE 3.5-L V6)

"Unbelievably bad voice recognition. Asking to navigate to addresses in Portland, Oregon (where I live) routinely return results in Missouri or Florida. The voice recognition is essentially worthless -- dealership has had no clue when I seek help"

"Struts are leaking. Toyota puts out a bullentin to their dealers saying that strut leakage is "normal" and even has maps to show to what extent leaking is normal vs. excessive. First vehicle I've ever owned that considered strut leakage normal. Independent repair shops like AAA say its not normal and if not addressed would not pass state inspection. Very hard to get dealer to acknowledge problem. Think Toyota got cheap if struts can leak at @26k-33k miles"
