It's very reliable, dependable and offers large cargo space for a family especially when travelling. Spare parts & mechanics abound. However, proper maintenance is pivotal to happy car ownership.

Conversely, fuel consumption is more than average because it comes in 6 cylinder configuration.

Why add xle to your query. The xle is a trim I will list the trim according to gadgets

1. Symphony edition (most loaded and most expensive)
2. Xle (Xtra luxury edition)
3. LE (luxury edition)
4. CE (compact edition)

Depending on the trim and what it has, will determine price. I would prefer a 01-03 sienna than the 97-2000 due to upgraded engine which has more hp and better mpg

That's a second generation sienna, different from the first one you asked for. This one started from 2004 upwards

i thought it was the early 2k, but there is something I have notice the body features are always the same (I.e the Second Edition you said) so why the various LE, XLE

Well they are all same shape, same engine but things inside are the difference

Like some CE don't have roof rails, some don't have leather seat, no tachometer, they are 2 wheel drive instead of 4wheel drive, some have DVD navigation screen and roof DVD, premium sound system, fog light, U-Haul attachment etc so many to mention.

So if you are on a budget, you will be looking at CE and LE but if you want the best and most loaded you will only settle for XLE or limited edition.

Both le ce and xle of the first generation sienna are all shitty and the same jaree.
Only better thing about le or xle is roof rack leather seats and alloy

I would pick the 3.3L engine in the 2005 than the 3.5L engine in the 2008. Both are reliable but the 3.5L face-lifted sienna has some brain touching issues and also expensive parts.

These is a tough nut to Crack as Nigeria is always an exception to a normal norm. The step I suggest you take is

1 Set your mind 1st on a working budget
2 pick a second option/have a plan B incase your preferred choice doesn't fit into your budget
3 go to olxdotcomdotng and input sienna there and go through the results, this will give you an average range you can work with
4 A visit to the car stand to confirm the authenticity of such advert.

A car isn't only about mileage do a VIN check for tokunbo and do and elaborate test drive and scrutinize a Nigerian used one and set aside around 200k to fix hidden faults.

Baba which kind joke be this grin

1998 to 2003 has only one engine 3.0L V6

2004 to 2010 has 2 engines
04-06 has 3.3L V6
07-010 has 3.5L V6

2011 till date has 3 engines
2.7L I4
And two different 3.5L V6

If you are adamant on 4 cylinder, look at the second generation Toyota previa

I will advise you look for a Toyota picnic or a previa as has been advised by Nurey. These two vans come with 4 cylinder engines & will save you a huge cost in fuelling. They are also cheaper to acquire in addition to lower cost of running.

I suppose you do not wish to struggle to buy a vehicle with whatever savings you have made over the years only to realise it's a serious burden in the long run.

The first generation Sienna come debuted with a 3.0l 1MZ FE V6 engine with an mpg rating of 16 city & 22mpg highway driving. In Nigeria, you will not get anywhere near this numbers owing to a number factors including poor quality fuel, road conditions and so on.

The second generation Sienna has the 3.3l 3MZ FE V6 engine with estimated mpg of 17 & 23 city/highway driving respectively. Both vans will consume fuel & have higher capacity fuel tanks.

There are also other options with 4 cylinder engines such as Sharon etc.

Do not make a hasty decision in buying, but think it through to be such you are making the right choice.

Thank for the info guys, because that 3. Something get as in be, just like someone having a filling station in his compound for that vehicle

It depends, I use the 3.0L V6 sienna 2000 manufacturer stats is 9L highway 12.5L city 10.5L combined.

I mostly achieve around 10 to 12.5L/100km within Lagos depending on how I drive as I am always against traffic while heading to work.

But I was caught up in abule egba traffic of 4hours one day while coming from abeokuta, I calculated my mpg and it was around 14L/100km.

So you have to calculate your distance, you don't need a vehicle to do this, you can use a map on Android device to calculate it.

Then calculate what you really need the car for, if it's for third row seats, there are a lot of third row seat vehicles that you can choose and are more economical than the sienna but with less cargo space.

1. Toyota Picnic
2. Corolla verso
3. Toyota avanza (mostly Nigerian used)
