I was not sold on a minivan because I prefer more rugged SUV-type styling. But my wife was really interested because we will have two children in car seats for the next few years. She is only 5-feet tall and she struggled to get our two-year-old into his car seat in the back of our Lexus RX300. The 2004 Sienna Limited AWD van has exceeded our expectations. The interior is every bit as nice as the Lexus. All of the doors (including the tailgate) are power assisted for opening and closing. The cargo space is second to none especially when the rear seats are folded into the floor. The DVD package is wonderful for long trips. The only criticism I have is that the AWD seems to cause more road noise than I would expect from a minivan, but that may be due to the type of tires that are on the van. Otherwise, this is a fantastic family vehicle.

What can I say? This car fits me to a T. Just the right size for anything you would desire of it. Even though larger than regular cars, it easily performs just as well. My husband drives an 05 Camry and loves to "steal" mine for longer trips and hauling.
Love my Sienna minivan

I love Toyota cars. And yet the Sienna minivan is so awesome that it can run very good and last a long time when you mantain it very well. My car comes with DVD entertainment with wireless headphones which entertains my kids so much fun while traveling in the car.
