We purchased our 2000 Toyota Sienna Minivan in November of 1999 from Lakeland Toyota off the lot for $30, 000. We purchased the minivan before our first child arrived in February of 2000. The Toyota minivan has been a wonderful purchase for our family. The van consists of two bucket seats in the middle and a row seat in the back. All the back seats fold down and can also be completely removed. We normally have one bucket seats removed so that we can easily get the children and their various things in and out of the van. The right side passenger back door is a automatic slider. This is a great convenience since the children can easily get in and out of the van without any assistance. We get great gas mileage on our van and have not had any serious mechanical issues. The driver side automatic window does get stuck in the down position occassionally. We have decided that for the cost of a replacement motor, we can certainly live with the window that occassionally will not roll up.
Our overall experience with the Toyota Sienna has been a wonderful one and we would not hesitate to purchase another Toyota product in the future.
