We purchased a new, 2012 Toyota Sienna Limited AWD. It replaced a 2007 version of the same car. Prior to this we have owned two AWD Chrysler vans. We have 4 kids: 2 teenagers and 2 in middle school. All play various sports year round. We live in NH and like to ski as much as possible. The car spends several hours every day running the kids to practice and games. The AWD works terrific. The car is as competent as any Jeep on the road and in parking lots. Interior is great. Our kids are big ¿ 2 over 6¿2¿ but there is plenty of room for them and our stuff. We also looked at the large SUV¿s but felt this van had more useable and comfortable interior space. The car has have NAV and DVD. Expensive but very useful on trips and locating hard to find fields. Reliability is amazing. Much much better than the Chrysler. We had over 125K hard miles on the 2007 with zero issues. We have now had the 2012 for 2 months. It has pros and cons vs the 2007. Pros: Interior feels bigger and more refined. Push button start takes a little getting used to but once we did we like it. We thought the middle sun roof would be useless but we are also enjoying this with it opened and closed. DVD, NAV, stereo are expensive and complicated, but work well and integrate well with iphone(s)/pads/pods. Cons: Feels much bigger dimension-wise on the outside. Less line of sight over the hood and on the sides. Makes it much harder to park and pull into the garage. Like the 2007, you are locked out of most of the functionality of the NAV and even the music/cellphone operation when the car is moving -- which is extremely frustrating. I get the safety thing for the driver, but don't know why the functions can't be made available when there is a passenger in the car. The car can sense when people sit in the front passenger seat - why not allow them to safely operate the NAV system? It does have voice control, but this is very slow and frustrating. Overall a very good car. Expensive but we feel the AWD is critical in our area of the country and the other features are worth the money given the amount of time we all spend in the car. Final comment... get multiple quotes. The "get a quote" functioned worked great. I don't like to haggle, but there was over a $4K difference in the various bids we recieved from the Toyato dealers. In the end the one closest to us matched the best price and we saved.Read more reviews at Cars.com
