I bought a 2023 Sienna XLE in December. It was from a dealer I know well, as I bought from them before. If you want to the top of the line, get on their good side. Its easy to be nice to friends. I had to wait about 30 days or so, that's all. You can call SVG Toyota in Washington Court house Ohio, and they sell them at MSRP. Since I did THEM a favor, and took possession before the end of the year (I wanted to wait a few more days to get a little more cash down, I had to sell some things). Now, because of that, he says Toyota will allocate them more Siennas in 2023. Its a very very small dealership in a very small town. Be ready to fly or get a ride to this area when they arrive. The small dealerships dont have the massive advertising budgets, and you need to look them up. They often dont have their vehicles listed on sites like Car gurus and the like, so you have to call or email them. Better is to call. I was very happy with the dealership (SVG Toyota), and would/will buy there again. They informed me of rebates I was unaware of, the military and TFS rebates, which saved me 1000. And, because I asked about the spare, he also discounted, yes, discounted the MSRP by the amount of the spare, so I bought it 1100 below MSRP, including rebates.
I was "shocked" at how much I got for my trade. It was a sweet ride..a 2022 Honda CRV hybrid EXL, with under 10,000 miles. I buy nothing buy hybrids...We are not the only ones who want to save gas and not fuss with plugging in an electric car and worrying about the range.
And, those hybrids in nice shape are always easy to sell and bring more than non hybrids. In Camry (camry hybrid) and corolla (corolla hybrid), and Honda (both CRV hybrid and accord hybrid), the hybrid versions wont cost you..they save you money twice. They save you at the pump, and make you money when you sell them. Honda and Toyota hybrids are very popular for very good reasons.
For example, the CRV hybrid "does not have the oil dilution" problem, in no small part because it does not need a turbo. It has electric motors which increase the hp instead, like Sienna.
I avoid Turbo's, I want naturally aspirated hybrids. I have bought and sold or traded at least a dozen or so cars in the past 36 months or so. Subaru, Honda, Toyota's, mostly. The Subaru was my one exception to hybrids. Oh, and ONE Silverado. I sold or traded all these cars for more than I paid new. I could sell my 2023 Sienna XLE for more than I paid, but I wont do that right now. The Sienna has about 4000 miles and looks, drives, acts, and even has a warranty similar to a new one. If I do decide to sell my Sienna, I will let you know, but I would not do that until/unless my Maverick arrives. I really want a Maverick hybrid.
The only thing I dont like about the Sienna is the gimmicky hands free door openers and closers. In the 2022 Siennas, the hands free door opener sensors often cause battery run down, so your car wont start. That problem seems to be solved in the 2023 models, at least in mine, because I have never had my car fail to start.
Unless you want to pay 50 grand for a car, then call someone to jump start it often, then I cant recommend a 2022 Sienna. However, If you are certain this problem is fixed you would do fine. There is a service bulletin on the problem. Its simple enough tho.
Take your car to the dealer and ask them to disable the gimmicky irritating hands free door sensors. You may be able to figure out how to disable the door sensors yourself, but, again, I dont want to plop down 50 grand for a car, then figure out how to fix it so it will start.
If I wanted to solve car problems like not being able to start it because the battery drains, then I would probably drive a 1000 dollar car...they would have lots of problems to solve like that. However, I solved many car problems in the past, and no longer wish to trouble shoot problems and solve them. Im too old for that. I just want to drive them, in comfort, and get great gas mileage. And, of course, wash and maintain them. The Sienna is easy to maintain. Drive it to the dealer about 2 times a year and tell them to maintain it. Thats it.
