CHALLENGE: The High-Mileage Club > Toyota Sienna at 300000 KMS

I am just very curious about how long lived are Toyota Siennas. I have heard stories of some Toyota Sienna lasting over 400,000 kms if very well maintained. Is this true or just a myth?

I do not know of any Toyota Sienna personally that lasted beyond 300,000 kms.

Would love to hear from Toyota Sienna owners their current mileage if their Sienna's have > 300,000 kms on them.

If you search the forum there you might find your answer. But why not, there are MBs running around with high mileage badges.

any car if properly maintained can last 300,000 km or above.

1998 Toyota Sienna CE, it's used to be our daily family hauler but now it's just for our home depot trips and what not. Original owner is myself and it's got 330km on the dash and running strong.

All we ever did was regular maintenance and a few odd bulbs here and there.

I actually had a 1991 Corolla with 540km on the dash that I sold earlier this year. As the above above mentions, any car properly taken care of can run you well past 300k.

This is nothing. My previous car had over 250,000 kms in 8 years. My existing car right now has almost 300k (295,000) and still running strong. They are not Toyota.

i think mid 300's are where quite a lot of beaters give up and are not worth fixing at all.

Wow, that's very impressive. 550K kms and still you were able to find a buyer. Your car must be worth in gold. :) I am sure I would have bought it for bragging rights if nothing else. :)

I agree... its not the engine that would give up but the body of the car in general would start breaking up.

That was the situation with my '91 Corolla, the engine was running strong but the body was giving up. It was actually a local body shop that bought it off me.

I have a friend, who's Sienna was at ~700k.. still running fine when they sold it.

They drove it down to LA a few times, and everywhere else.

And serioussly, 300K is somewhat 'alot' but really not that much.

$150, but I didn't care too much as it was beginning to take up space as nobody drives it much anymore.
