My Sienna is a great car for my life with my children.
It's a great vehicle for kids. I have 3 kids, whose ages are 3, 6, & 8. They are all boys and they all play sports. The van has plenty of space to fit them and all their sports gear. It also has plenty of space to fit extra kids, as I am usually bringing their friends home a lot of the time. I have had my car for over 5 years and have not had any problems with it. The sliding doors are great to have with my kids. They can easily get in and out of the car without me worrying about them possibly smashing their fingers in the car door. That is a safety feature in my opinion. The car is very reliable and has always worked well, I have not had any problems with it. It's very comfortable to drive. It is high up enough to see clearly what is ahead of me, while at the same time not being too high off the ground, making it easier to drive. I have the LE model, which has the backup camera. It has been very helpful with backing up. I do wish I would of gotten the model that came with a DVD player, so I may have one installed in the future. I have often contemplated trading in my van for an SUV, but any SUV I have looked into just cannot compare to the space and comfort I have with the Sienna. I also love that the car came with run flats as tires. It makes me feel like the tires are very reliable as well.
