When it comes to family transportation, it's hard to beat a minivan for moving your brood and its stuff. And among minivans, the Sienna is a rational choice. Its long list of strong suits include a comfortable ride and an energetic powertrain that returns respectable fuel economy: The front-wheel-drive version we tested returned 21 mpg. Those looking for an all-wheel-drive will find that the Sienna is the only game in town.

Anonymous, WA (2017 Toyota Sienna Limited 3.5-L V6)

"My Honda Mini Van was much quieter. I have had it back to the dealer at least twice to fix these. It is better for a while then it comes back. Part of the problem is that tire/jack tools are not secured properly. I have had to wrap insulation or refit these items. Even the dealer license plate frame caused issues as it vibrated."

Madeline K., IN (2017 Toyota Sienna XLE 3.5-L V6)

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

Display screen freezes up

"The screen was half darked out! So half the screen was regular viewing clarity and the other half had what appeared to be a dark shade pulled down on it. Clarity was compromised on one side but the dealership put in a new monitor."

Anonymous, NJ (2017 Toyota Sienna LE 3.5-L V6)
Display screen goes blank

"Several times since buying the Van new, the center big screen goes blank then shows the Toyota symbol and warning page continuously rotating between the two. This issue lasts any where from a few minutes to a few hours and there is nothing the operator can do to fix the problem. The display begins normal operation when it's ready."

In-dash navigation system (GPS)

"On Apps screen, the Traffic option is puzzlingly bad. North of Atlanta (where we have plenty of traffic jams), it only shows two images: the northside of Atlanta and the south, nothing within 30 miles of where we are. Worthless"

I get bounced back and forth between Toyota and the app developer to resolve questions the nav system developer tracks where you go etc. must op out of using data for ta"

Anonymous, FL (2017 Toyota Sienna XLE 3.5-L V6)

"Totally useless system. It is absurd to have to have it pair with a smart phone. Not everyone has a smartphone (my wife for example). The system is very finicky and often times it just can not find the location. Just a basic nav.sys. like the one I owned in the 1990s. Not at all state of the art or at par with average system you can buy at Big-Box store or up to Tyota''s standards. Also very much object to way this is promoted. Makes it seem as if it is a fully integrated nav system but really is not. Have had it in shop numerous times for fixes and spend hours on the phone with their support folks...never able to get it to work correctly and consistently. There are lots of great mini-vans out there and while I love most everything else about this vehicle when lease is over unless they have a fully integrated stand all one nav system. Right now I use Ways which is consistent, does not blank out in the middle of a trip and provides very accurate info. My wife, well she just muddles along.w/o a nav system"

"The voice recognition for the GPS system is totally useless. It is necessary to stop the van and have total quiet in the vehicle before any chance of the system recognizing commands, and even then it is very unreliable. It is the worst accessory purchase I have ever made in buying a car."

Michael J., WI (2017 Toyota Sienna XLE 3.5-L V6)
Phone pairing (e.g., Bluetooth)

What Owners Say

Rough shifting

"New 8 speed transmission shifts roughly but there is currently a TSB for a software update which I haven't done yet"

Walentin K., TX (2017 Toyota Sienna XLE 3.5-L V6)

"I turned in our 2014 Sienna on the 2017 model. I had just finished a 5 week cross country road trip with the 2014 and loved it. The 2017 model does not shift as smoothly and does not have the smooth acceleration as the 2014. I am getting used to the 2017 and have found that using the cruise control more allows the car to shift better"

Anonymous, NY (2017 Toyota Sienna XLE 3.5-L V6)

"Toyota Sienna’s new transmission, the 8-speed design (2017 and beyond), was created to improve gas mileage. Although, savings would NOT be recognized for any of the AWD models. What was new to these models you may wonder? Erratic shifting and a truly awful, awful ride. I traded in my 2015 Sienna for a 2017 with the promise from my saleswoman at the dealership of big savings at the pump, as well as an ultra-smooth ride by way of a “State-of the-art transmission”. However, after buying the vehicle I was forced to bring the van in for service five or six times for jerky-shifting and an unusually uncomfortable ride. Each time, I would be told that the vehicle was operating correctly. Over the last couple of years, I am now being told by the dealership that I need to wait for a “Computer program update” for my Sienna’s on-board computer, which Toyota is working on that will assist in smoothing out the shifting issues. To date, no such program has been created. -Eric J. Heinrich-Stewart"

Eric H., MA (2017 Toyota Sienna Limited 3.5-L V6)

"At low speeds the transmission will have a definite lurch when shifting down to a lower gear and when accelerating after slowing down. I owned a 2009 Sienna that did not have this problem and am disappointed with the ride of the newer vehicle. I probably will not buy another Sienna."

George T., LA (2017 Toyota Sienna XLE 3.5-L V6)

"In heavy traffic it is difficult to stay with the flow using the foot feed. The engine hesitates, then accelerates and down shifts suddenly, then immediately shifts back up. Then has no power, then have to step on the gas, the motor accelerates, shifts down and immediately up over and over."

Anonymous, SC (2017 Toyota Sienna L 3.5-L V6)
Gauges

"Daytime or nighttime, there is no setting that makes the gauges readable at a glance--all settings are way too low. Made worse because there is no night setting for the mirror and blinding lights from behind are not handled well--if at all. At night, the brightness of the entertainment screen cannot be lowered, making it hard to see the gauges, or even a dark road (which we have here in the mountains!)"

Robert C., GA (2017 Toyota Sienna LE 3.5-L V6)

"Cannot see the speedometer during daylight hours -gauges are often in a shadow (only way to get "visibility" is to turn on exterior lights). This is a safety retrograde to what I had on my 2004 model that I traded in for this 2017"

"The passenger's side sliding door has noticeably hesitated using the electronic openers (fob, passengers button, drivers button, etc) since we bought it.

Glass defects

"The front windshield has a distortion in the bottom two inches that causes the fog line on a highway to look like it is wavering. I found this very distracting to the point where my attention was drawn to the fog line and not the road ahead.

What Owners Say

4WD/AWD components

"We bought our Sienna because it's the only minivan with 4-wheel drive. Because the drive shaft location ruled out even a peanut spare tire, AWD Siennas come from the factory with run-flat tires and no spare. We have had very bad experiences with run-flat tires: -(1) They have extremely short life spans: we bought 7 replacement run-flat tires in the first 2 years, including a brand new tire that was ruined by a pothole the day after it was installed]. -(2) They're more expensive than conventional tires. -(3) They're often not stocked in many tire outlets (especially in rural places where a flat tire can be a big inconvenience). Eventually, we switched over to conventional tires, including a spare that is (necessarily) in the way in the back of the car. But during the near-year since we switched to conventional tires, we've had no tire problems."
