rough ride in a 08 - normal?

today I drove my first 08 in our search for a pre owned Sienna. It was very rough - like we were riding on pebbly asphalt. Will try another at another dealer tomorrow - but curious if this is 'normal' - our old Previa is a very smooth drive. Would not buy such a rough ride, this dealer had not done the check over of the car, it came straight from the auction so maybe it was an alignment problem. It's an ex-rental, 46,000 miles.

Another question is whether the "Toyota certified" extended warranty is worth the extra price hike on dealership pre-owned over non-dealership dealers.

thanks for any replies concerning this.

Hi, I think you test drove a Sienna with bad tires. My 2004 Sienna LE has one of the smoothest rides. I use Michelin tires and keep them rotated at 5k intervals. I'm sorry that your first test drive in a Sienna wasn't a good one. Trust me, you will love the Sienna. I purchased the factory extended warranty and I'm glad I did. One of my door lock motors quit working on a sliding door and it would have cost over $600 to replace. Extended warranty covered it completely. Good luck finding a good used Sienna.
