Last night, was in an accident here in Southern California. Sienna was running amazing at 250k miles. It's unfortunate that it's a total loss because it has many great parts. New steering rack and front suspension. Will probably end up at a Pick A Part

You put a lot of work into this van and I am sorry to see it end this way. As long as you were not hurt is what matters. Hope you find yourself another Sienna soon.

This vehicle has been amazing. Comfortable, reliable workhorse. Has never failed or never left me stranded. Was about to start an overland/camper build out to include upgrading the exhaust/catalytics due to P0420 codes. Glad that I didn't. Going to look for another from this generation preferably a AWD but FWD is ok as well.

Wow! Amazing that anyone walks away from that much damage, let alone walks away without injury. As a kid, the first time I saw an accident like that (without crumple zones), there was a sheet over the driver. The next vehicle will be just as much an adventure as this one!

So sorry about that, and as others have said, it's great that no one was hurt. I own a 2006 (3MZ-FE) (167,000 mi) and a 2008 (2GR-FE) (218,000mi) both LEs, both FW drive and both bought at 2 years old. They are both great, and I like them both for slightly different reasons. If you live in southern Cal I would suggest FW drive, unless you somehow drive where there's tons of snow. In my opinion, FW drive is somewhat more durable / reliable over the long haul. Just my 2 cents.

So sorry for your loss and glad no one was hurt. I have an 06 also but mine only has about 110,000 miles on it so hopefully it will continue on as long as yours did. The only problem I have is I live in Ohio and have to deal with salt in the winter:cry:. It's still in really good shape but sooner or later that winter weather will take it's toll.😅
