2007 Toyota SiennaDistance Driver 1910 - Charlotte, NC09/12/2010
Believe it or not, our company chose the Sienna as it's fleet vehicle due to the fact that we often have company officials visit from HQ and needed a vehicle that could seat more than 4 adults.
In three years the van acquired over 260,000 miles with no issues. It has a terrific turning radius, much better than my Chryster PT Cruiser small car! The transmission upshifts and downshifts occur almost imperceptibly. Also nice is the fact that there are five speeds to choose from so you have more control over what gear you are in than any other minivan. This is especially useful if you live in hilly or mountainous terrain. The V6 is smooth and has enough power for on ramps and passing. The car is louder than an Odyssey (our family car) during driving but not too loud. The Sienna has all the cargo space you should ever need. The second row seats do not stow in the floor as in the Dodge/Chrysler minivan but they do folf flat, then flip forward for even more space and of course are removable. The third row seats fold into the floor but do require some strenth. However, they have the edge over the Odyssey third row seats which take more effort to stow. The styling is on par for Toyota recently, which is to say forgettable so the edge goes to the Odyssey but that really means nothing because style points are not a priority when you need those extra seats. If you need a minivan, the Sienna is reliable, efficient and easy to drive and park, with enough storage space for most families.
Your right it is a mini-van

Mini vans get a bad rap. Purchased this vehicle for the interior space, smooth ride and styling. Have not been disappointed with this purchase. No issues with the vehicle from time of purchase.
We love our Sienna XLE!
2012 Toyota SiennaJimmie Covington - Huntsville, AL12/23/2015
It is a very comfortable car, a true people mover. We took a 3,000 mile trip with 5 adults, luggage and a walker for my disabled father. There was room for all and we did not feel like we were on top of each other. We chose not to have the entertainment package, opting for more headroom. In cold weather, the seat warmers are a pleasure and in warm weather, the air conditioner is a must. There is plenty of power
