2004 Toyota Sienna LE from North America
A super comfortable minivan
I love this minivan. It is very comfortable and has an elegant looking console. I was unhappy about giving up the cargo space of my Astro, but the smooth ride of the Sienna makes up for it. It was a real pain actually getting the car, because of limited availability. We found one in the color and package I wanted on the computer sheet coming into a dealership three hours away. We put a deposit on it and waited for over a month to take possession. I got the 7 passenger LE package #1 in Blue Mirage. The color was not as blue as I had thought it would be (looks like light gray). The only improvements I would make would be a more comfortable third row seat and an easier to close rear hatch. I wish we had the power hatch because that door is quite heavy. I also wish it had the side curtain airbags like the Nissan Quest.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I bought the 8 passenger LE with package #10. It has the side airbags, but more importantly it has the rear disk brakes. The brakes more more sense to me than side airbags as a preventative safety device. A loaded minivan gets pretty heavy and the extra stopping power is more than worth the extra cost.
We traded our 2002 Saturn Vue AWD V6 in for a used 2004 Toyota Sienna Le. We've owned the van for 5 months now and could not be happier! The van works like a dream and I was pleasantly surprised that it actually uses less gas than our Vue, BONUS! The Sienna has been a great family vehicle and I couldn't imagine life without it!
