1999 Toyota Sienna XLE V6 from North America
Excellent car, well worth the money
At the start, there were some issues with door latches, but a couple trips to the dealer resolved them.
We bought a loaded Sienna XLE as our first minivan in Summer '99. This car earns top marks for comfort, reliability and overall value. The seats are excellent, and we had no issues driving it across the country.
The engine is quite powerful, and towed a large trailer across the country with no issues.
Gas mileage is acceptable for a car this big.
Handling is surprisingly nimble for a van. You can definitely tell that it's based off the Camry.
Aside from the door latch issue, we've never had to bring it in for anything other than scheduled maintenance.
Overall, the Sienna's greatly exceeded our expectations. We'll be looking at Toyota first for all our future cars.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
