Absolutely!

Two of my friends with them are over 200K miles and still going strong.

I have a Toyota Sequoia and it is at 140K miles and no issues whatsoever.

Ours is a 2004 and we have had no issues with it at all. The only things we've done are routine maintenance things. It has 116,000 miles.

The Toyota Sienna has been one of Consumer Report's top rated vans for years.

My wife's 2008 Sienna is one of the best vehicles we've ever owned. It just goes and goes and goes.....

It just made its fourth 2500mi round trip to Disney last month, and packed full of folks and baggage, rolled up 25mpg..

Highest recommendation offered without the slightest hesitation.

I'd agree with this. We just sold our 2004 -- with around 130K miles on it. It worked well while we had it and never had any issues.

However, after 9 1/2 years were just ready for a change and some of the newer technology that's out there.

Absolutely love my 2008 sienna. Has 83,000 miles on it. Faithfully do routine maintenance no issues. Drove our last Toyota, a camry, to it's death at almost 300,000 miles at the hands of ds . Hope to get even more miles with this van.

Yes. I love mine- which I bought because everyone (including my mechanic) said it was the best choice.

Last time I got the oil changed the mechanic joked that he wasn't going to recommend them anymore- because he never sees me.

My family (parents and teenage siblings) have one and it's been great for 7 years with no major issues. And trust me.. they put more miles on their vehicles with work and travel than anyone I have ever met.
I am strongly considering one. My husband really doesn't want a minivan but for the quality, room and price point I am very very tempted.

I have one it is a 2011 and have had absolutely no problems with it at all. . They also hold their value very well which can't be said for GM cars.

I have a 2006 Sienna and love it too! Just general maintenance though we did have a minor glitch with the electrical on the radio. It was replaced under warranty and hasn't been an issue since. We put 3000 miles a summer on it, we're up past 120k now. I expect this will be my last minivan.

I particularly love the trunk space & 8 seats! I agree w/the pp who mentioned that they hold their value. I considered selling it a few times for something smaller and could have easily come out ahead of where we were on payments. Now that it's paid off, I'm glad we kept it.

I have a 1999 Sienna that I purchased used in 2001 with 60k miles I love that van! I'm a bit over 200k miles now and will be giving it to my parents to keep at their vacation home. I thought I would switch to a highlander or something like that.... Don't know if I can do it! I LOVE the space!

Best vehicle investment I have made to date.

We have a 2002 with 130k miles and love it! Had a couple of minor mechanical issues 2 yrs ago to the tune of $1000, but just maintenance other than that.
