Sitting in wheelchair, can't reach to pull down 2020 Sienna LE rear hatch.

Is there an "add on" to make rear hatch door automatic open/close or ?

Guess I could DRILL A HOLE and attach a pull down strap,etc?

An LE van might not be the best choice for you given your situation. XLE comes with a motorized hatch, IIRC.

Straps can be problematic if they don't retract, as if it's mounted on the inside it will invariably end up pinched in the seal on closure. I have heard of aftermarket kits, but the Sienna system is a bit unique (different from the RAV4 and Highlander in architecture), so likely not as common. Perhaps the inner panel, motor and drive from a wrecking yard Sienna could be grafted in.
