Toyota Sienna comfortably fits 7, part recalls, & easy YouTube diy fixes.
Toyota Siennas are great if you have a big family or plan to carpool a lot. It fits 7 and has comfortably fit me and my family of 6 with all our traveling gear for state-long road trips. It is also nice to take the seats out and put a mattress in to travel around with. I've been told this make and model car had a recall on the original engines but when I bought my car the engine was already replaced. Both strut mounts had to be replaced over a year ago and that is another thing you might want to look into before buying this car. Cost about $1, 000 to get both fixed and is not something you can do by yourself. It has always driven smoothly however in the past two years it is been falling apart. The side door behind the passenger is automatic and does not close properly anymore, meaning you have to pull with all your strength to get it closed. The door handle on the outside side door behind the driver's seat broke once but good news is you can easily fix it. All you need is to buy a new handle online, have the correct tools, and look up YouTube videos to fix it yourself. Took less than a half hour to repair. Same with the front lights. I have had to replace light bulbs and they are really easy to do it yourself with the correct materials and a YouTube video to follow.
