Benefits of Driving a 2009 Toyota Sienna Van

The Sienna stands out from the minivan pack for several reasons. It's the only one to offer optional all-wheel drive, with run-flat tires included. It also boasts true luxury-vehicle options like laser cruise control. And there's a choice of two different seating configurations. Resale value is another strong point.

What's new for 2009?

Changes are few, as a completely redesigned Sienna is expected for 2010. 17-inch alloy wheels are a new option, and option packages for the LE model have been revised.

Model Strengths

  • Available all-wheel drive
  • very spacious, comfortable interior
  • good handling
  • tech options
  • choice of seating configurations
  • resale value

Model Review

On all Siennas, a 266-horsepower, 3.5-liter V6 provides power through a 5-speed automatic transmission. The engine has variable valve timing for both intake and exhaust valves to help maximize torque and fuel efficiency. Fuel economy ratings for the Sienna range up to 17 mpg city, 23 highway, and as is the case with most minivans, the Sienna has driving manners that are very car-like, including reasonably responsive handling to complement the V6's more than ample power.

The experts at TheCarConnection.com looked to some of the most respected review resources on the Web to compile information on the 2009 Toyota Sienna. TheCarConnection.com's editors have also driven the Sienna and added their own observations and insights to help you make the best purchase choice.

The 2009 Toyota Sienna minivan has been on the market for five years with no major changes, and it shows. While it is still a large, comfortable, and versatile van for big families, its styling is outdated and its competitors have newer, more stylish products on the lots. Luckily for Toyota Sienna fans, an all-new version is due for 2010. The Sienna soldiers on for 2009 with very few changes.

For those who want a great, long-lasting family vehicle, the lack of cutting-edge style might not matter so much. The 2009 Toyota Sienna can seat up to eight and haul them in relative quickness, thanks to its 266-horsepower 3.5-liter V-6 mated to a five-speed automatic transmission. It isn't exactly exciting to pilot, but it is smooth and quiet, which are attributes minivan drivers are looking for--and there's plenty of passing power when you need it, even with a full load. The base Sienna is front-wheel drive, but the LE, XLE, and XLE Limited models are available with an all-wheel-drive system for all-weather traction.

"Minivan" may be a bad word for many mothers, but for pure practicality, they are hard to beat.  The 2009 Sienna is an excellent example of that functionality; its very spacious interior features a third-row seat that folds neatly into a well, allowing plenty of flat, low space for cargo while maintaining seating for five. If you don't have people to haul, the second row folds flat as well and can carry an actual 4x8 sheet of plywood. Top 2009 Toyota Sienna XLE and XLE Limited models get twin captain's chairs in the second row instead of the three-place bench seat.

The Sienna's interior is rich on features--including standard dual sliding doors and the folding third-row seats on all models. For power sliding doors, a power folding third row, and a power rear tailgate, you have to move up to the higher trim levels. Its interior materials and appointments feel a bit less refined compared to those of its competitors.

The options list on the 2009 Toyota Sienna would be right at home on a luxury-brand vehicle. It includes a rearview video camera, front/rear parking proximity warnings, side sunshades, laser-guided cruise control, a DVD entertainment system, satellite navigation system, and a JBL surround-sound audio system (standard on the XLE Limited) that includes Bluetooth hands-free connectivity.

The Sienna posts quite good results in U.S. crash tests, with four- and five-star ratings for frontal impact, five stars in side impact from the federal government, and "good" judgements from the IIHS in frontal and side impact. Unfortunately the IIHS deems the Sienna "poor" in the seat-based rear impact test, which gauges the risk of whiplash injury, among other things. Electronic stability control and anti-lock brakes are standard on every grade of the 2009 Toyota Sienna, as are front side airbags and side curtain bags covering all three seating rows.


The Bottom Line:

The 2009 Toyota Sienna is by no means exciting, but it will do a family right.

Safety Ratings help

What do the Safety Ratings mean?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) performs independent crash testing of new vehicles and then assigns them a score based on their performance. The overall crash test rating is based on how a vehicle performs in the following tests:

Driver Crash Grade:

Measures the chance of a serious injury to a crash test dummy that is placed in a driver's seat and driven into a fixed barrier at 35 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less chance of injury.

Passenger Crash Grade:

Similar to the driver crash grade, only now the focus is on the passenger.

Rollover Resistance:

Simulates an emergency lane change to measure the likelihood of a vehicle rolling over. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less risk of rollover.

Side Impact Crash Test - Front:

Focuses on the front side of a vehicle. It simulates crashes that can occur in intersections by striking a 3,015-pound weight against the side of a vehicle at 38.5 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 5 percent or less chance of injury.

Side Impact Crash Test - Rear:

Similar to the front side impact test only now the focus is on the rear passenger.

Original Warranty  help
Original Warranty
An original warranty is the warranty associated with a vehicle when it is brand new. In addition to the original warranty, select items, like tires, are typically covered by respective manufacturers. Also, an act of Federal law sometimes provides protection for certain components, like emissions equipment.
The original warranty is often broken down into multiple sections, including:
Basic Warranty:
Typically covers everything except for parts that wear out through normal use of the vehicle. Examples of non-covered items are brake pads, wiper blades and filters.
Drivetrain Warranty:
This warranty covers items the basic warranty does not protect. Wear and tear items such as hoses will not be covered, but key items like the engine, transmission, drive axles and driveshaft often will be.
Roadside Assistance:
The level of service differs greatly with this warranty, but many manufacturers offer a toll-free number that helps provide assistance in case you run out of gas, get a flat tire or lock your keys in the car.
Corrosion Warranty:
This warranty focuses on protecting you from holes caused by rust or corrosion in your vehicle's sheet metal.
Please check the owner's manual, visit a local dealership or look at the manufacturer's website to learn more about the specifics of the warranties that apply to a vehicle.

Toyota Certified Pre-Owned Warranty  help
Certified Pre-Owned Warranty
To be eligible for Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) status, vehicles generally must be recent models with relatively low mileage. CPO vehicles must also pass a detailed inspection, outlined by the manufacturer, which is measured by the number of inspected points.
Warranty coverage can vary from one manufacturer to the next. While most certified pre-owned programs transfer and extend the existing new car warranty terms, others offer a warranty that simply represents an additional year and mileage value. Always check with the manufacturer for the specific warranties they offer.
Common features and benefits of Certified Pre-Owned warranties include:
Age/Mileage Eligibility
To even be considered for certification, a car must be a recent model year and have limited mileage. The exact requirements are established by individual manufacturers.
Lease Term Certified
Some manufacturers offer certified pre-owned cars for lease. The length of the lease is often shorter than a new car lease, but it will cost you less.
Point Inspection
These inspections entail a comprehensive vehicle test to ensure that all parts are in excellent working order. The point inspection list is simply a numbered list of exactly what parts of the car are examined. While many inspections range from a 70- to 150-point checklist, most are very similar and are performed using strict guidelines. Ask your local dealer about specific details.
Return/Exchange Program
Some manufacturers offer a very limited return or exchange period. Find out if you will get the sales tax and licensing/registration fees back should you return or exchange the car.
Roadside Assistance
Most certified pre-owned programs offer free roadside service in case your car breaks down while still under warranty.
Special Financing
Reduced-rate loans are available through many certified pre-owned programs. Manufacturer-backed inspections and warranties help eliminate the risks involved with buying pre-owned, so buyers who qualify can take advantage of the great offers.
Transferable Warranty
When a new car warranty transfers with the certification of the car and remains eligible for the next owner, it is known as a transferable warranty. Once the original transferable warranty expires, an extended warranty takes effect.
Warranty Deductible
This is the amount for which you are responsible when repair work is performed under the warranty. Some manufacturers require a deductible while others don't, so always ask.
