Just got a well used Sienna, and i love it!

Starts right up runs great,and awesome gas for a vehicle that has over 300k although it did have a engine rebuild at around 200k overall its in remarkable condition for its age,this vehicle has been well maintained i went through all the service records that the previous owner gave me,not bad at all. If your looking for reliable older mini van definently go with the Sienna


Most dependable car I have ever had.

This car has the smoothest, most pleasant ride. It also has the coldest air in town, warmest heater. I've had a lot of cars but this is one if the toughest and most reliable cars I've ever owned.


Most reliable car I've owned!

Out of the many vehicles my family has owned, this has been both the most comfortable, the most reliable, and the most cost effective because it's required so few repairs outside of regular maintenance. 20 years and taking the family all over the country later, and it still runs like a charm.


Reliable Driving from A2B Just Needs Some TLC

One Of A Kind Toyoda Aka MadMax/Demolition Derby Van.Wont See One Anywhere Else. Can't Not Stair At it.🤣 Does Run Not To Bad On It Being A Project Car No Major Engine Issues Love The Truck Horn Extra Kick For Those Annoying Cell Phone Drivers Distracted.


Not what expect from a toyota

These cars in my opinion are way overrated poor gas miles handeling not so good steering oh well that's not all that grate feels loose you be the judge with yours I'm saying for this one it feel unsafe and I don't have a family hauling around in it you be the judge


Dependable and functional

This vehicle stayed in our family for 21 years. There were no serious mechanical issues with it over that time. I could not have been more satisfied with the reliability and dependability and this encouraged us to replace it with another Toyota. I expect it to give many more years of service to the next family.


Pretty Reliable Seinna

This has been a pretty reliable car for me. I have had to do somethings to it. As it was not maintained as good as it could have been. The door handles are a weak spot. Although the engine and transmission are pretty solid on these vehicles. Hope this review was helpful to readers.


1998 Toyota Sienna XLE

In 17 years of our ownership, it has been one of the most reliable auto we have owned. It has 164 k miles currently and can easily do another 100k, 7 years. No Achilles heel noted. Some door rattle by age. Transmission rebuilt, steering rack, one front wheel bearing, D/S CV half axle, outer tie rod replaced. Oil leaks from valve gaskets and lower intake required replacement due to age. Dashboard and cockpit plastics lasting well. Dashboard plastics tend to creak in cold. Interior and roof lining fared much better than other cars we have owned.


The most reliable, family friendly vehicle I owned

Bought our Toyota Sienna XLE in 1998. Loved it from the moment we saw it. Have owned it for 19 years, has around 135,000 miles on it. Perfect for transporting or chauffeuring your kids, parents from one place to another. Would absolutely recommend it to a friend with family.


Love my 98 Sienna!

I bought new. I loved it from the moment I saw it and even more after test driving it. It is the XLE model, fully loaded. I was never sorry I bought it. I sold my 90 Lincoln Town Car, great car also but thought if I was going to use it like a van ,then I should buy one. Other than reg. Maintenance, and new motors for the winged windows (Warrenty), which have broke again. I decided I didn't need them at the price of and repair. It I has 197,+ miles. It is showing wear and tear of course. Still going strong. I was thinking of buying the 2015 but found out it has a timing belt and it has to be changed periodically at a very high cost. So I am rethinking. Otherwise I would own it by now.
