  2. Problems, Maintenance, and Repair (Gen 2)
    We got our Sienna (2008 with 82k miles) back today, after nearly two weeks in the shop. Anytime someone asks me why I believe in extended warranties, I just point to my Toyota! We love it, but by my figuring the insurance arm of Toyota Financial has paid out several times what I paid for the...
