Just bought our 2011 Sienna last week and it drives like a dream! Steering is so smooth, turns and corners effortlessly. Has great pick up. Feels like your driving a living room on wheels. The first few days I felt like the car was almost too luxurious for me! Definitely spend the money or negotiate the price to get the XLE model. Ours has leather seats and navigation. I figure the dvd can be bought after market. Leather because our kids would have destroyed the fabric seats. It was between this and the Honda Odyssey. Test drove both and in the end it was a youtube video that helped us decide. Type in Toyota Sienna vs. Honda Odyssey and look for video from New York Training.
★★★★★ 270,000 miles and still going strong. All original

This van drives amazing and has never let my family down. I purchased it used with 230,000 miles due to an attractive price and all wheel drive. Our 2005 Honda Odyssey had 100,000 miles less than this van and was costing us insane amounts of money in repairs including $2,000 for new engine mounts and computer reprogramming that never even fixed the limp mode it was always in. This van even then drive twice as smooth and sound as the Honda and over the last 40,000 miles it has cost us a quarter of what the Honda cost in its last 2,000 miles of our ownership. We average 23 mpg in combined driving. It starts easy, every power option still works ( it has almost every available option and all wheel drive). I will be buying another when and if this one ever becomes unreliable. If you have a chance to buy a Sienna with high miles, check the maintenance history, drive it and if it drives properly and you feel good about it…Go for it. Mileage is not an issue when these are maintained driven responsibly.
