First minivan and I love it. I'm more focused on practicality in our family and after noticing that my 4 year old nephew had issues climbing into our Traverse, I knew it was time to think seriously about a minivan. We owned a 2010 Venza which we traded in after 75,000 miles and other a slight manufacturing defect with the 4-cylinder engine which was repaired under warranty, I took care of that car and it hummed along at 75,000 miles like that day we drove it off the lot. Needless to say I was sold on Toyota and noticed the difference in long-term build quality between it and our Traverse.

Favorite Feature : Sliding doors! Seems trivial, but when you live in northern VA and have to deal with narrow parking spaces, you understand why sliding doors matter.Space - The van allows you to fit a lot of people and cargo without sacrificing the gas mileage.The large slide out cup holders in front. The only reason I mention this is that these large cup holders where removed in the 2015 re-design and you don't know you like something until its gone. They are nice for key/phone/bottle storage.Love the tires! Ours came with Firestones and I've had two nails in them. They've been patched no problem.

Suggested Improvement : The biggest issue I have with the Sienna is the middle seat of the second row. It's pretty much useless unless you have family member that is literally a stick figure.I think most of the issues have been addressed in the 2015 redesign, save the smaller slide out cup holders in the front. 2015 has Driver speak; XLE Premium trim gives the DVD and BSM without having to spend a ton more on the Limited; redesigned interior is nice; very very slight ride improvement and ride noise reduction; Entune system is improved
